"We're thrilled with the opportunity to provide Lynx fans with a block party before Game 1 of the 2011 WNBA Finals," a Lynx news released quotes Conrad Smith, Lynx chief operating officer, as saying. "Lynx fans are the best in the WNBA and I know that they will be ready to kick off the festivities of the WNBA Finals early Sunday evening at the block party and carry that energy into Target Center at game time."
