No...I am not the girlfriend of a basketball. I'm Elle, a friend to all Suns fans. I like to add colorful commentary to otherwise technical and tense subjects, if only to amuse myself/pass time. I've actually been a BSotS fan and reader for a while, long before I officially joined the site, and love my fellow Bright Siders...

I've tried to change my screen name to the more simple, "BBGF" - but noooo. Someone already has it. Who? Where is this person?
