Greetings From Krakow

Czesc kibice Sky, tutaj Nique, pozdrowienia z Krakowa, Polska!!! Which means, Hello sky fans, this is Nique, greetings from Krakow, Poland.

Well, I'm back at it again. This is what we call an offseason which is really not an offseason because the majority of us WNBA players head overseas to play for another seven months. To tell you the truth I was not thrilled about coming overseas this year because I only had ONE week to rest before coming over here, not nearly as much time as I would have hoped. I've been here for about a month and a half now, and loving every minute of it.

Things are going well here in Poland. I play for a team called Can-Pack Wisla. This is my third year playing in Poland. Actually, I played for Wisla my first year in Poland and we won the championship. I love playing here. The team is great and we are having a good season so far. We play in two Leagues, the Polish league, which we are 9-1 and the Euro-league, which we are 3-1. The Euro-league is the tougher league because we play some of the best teams from all around Europe. The fans are crazy, in a good way, they support us no matter what. Our fans are so loud, you will have a headache when you leave the game because all you will hear are drums, horns and the fans chanting the Wisla song. It's a fun atmosphere. Maybe next season we’ll have some new crazy fans in the Sky stands, everyone bring your drums, tambourines and cowbells (if you have them), let’s get crazy!!

The city of Krakow is beautiful. It is a city that still holds on to its historical culture, while embracing a more modern life. The people are very energetic. There's not a day that passes without seeing families out enjoying the outdoors and taking advantage of everything the city has to offer. Most people flock to the 10-acre main market where there are lots of café’s, restaurants, clubs and pubs for people to enjoy. This is where I spend most of my time. The weather here is similar to Chicago weather so if anyone ever comes to visit during this time make sure you bring a big coat!!

Before I leave you guys, I wanted to say congrats to Obama. Being a hometown Chicago girl I can only imagine the excitement that was going on in Chicago on Election Day. It was definitely a historic day for all Americans, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.

Well that's about it for me, until next time, remember to bring your drums.

Nique
