Lindsay Gets Her Day

Lindsay Whalen gets another day in the sun courtesy of the Lynx and fan get a keepsake giveaway.

Love this giveaway at the Minnesota Lynx game.

The team is honoring local legend Lindsay Whalen with a “Whay Day” to commemorate her Class of 2022 induction in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

She was recently the Golden Gophers Head Coach and is one of the most decorated basketball players in State history.

She has already had her jersey retired by the team and now will add a banner to note her induction in the Hall of Fame.

On June 8, 2019, the Minnesota Lynx honored Whalen by retiring her No. 13 jersey that she wore from 2010 to 2018. The ceremony took place at the Target Center before the game against the Los Angeles Sparks. On August 23, 2019, the Connecticut Sun also honored Whalen by retiring her No. 13 jersey that she wore from 2004 to 2009. The ceremony took place at halftime in the Mohegan Sun Arena during the game between the Sun and the Las Vegas Aces.

Great giveaway by the team to mark the occasion as the first 5,000 fans get a wall banner to match.

Of course she is also my favorite player, an honor likely equal to the Hall of Fame in her mind.
