Mystics change team colors; WNBA president to step down

By Washington Post editors

The Washington Mystics announced at an event for season ticket holders that they are changing their team colors. The new look includes an increased use of red to go with navy, silver and white.

Mystics-2011-Primary.jpg"We feel the new color pallet provides an attractive refresh to our identity while aligning the team with the Monumental Sports & Entertainment brand [that also includes the Capitals and the Wizards]," Mystics Chief Operating Officer Greg Bibb said.

In other WNBA news, league President Donna Orender, who succeeded founding president Val Ackerman in April 2005, will resign effective Dec. 31. She will be a consultant to the league.

Orender will start a marketing, media and strategy company called Orender Unlimited.

"Donna's contributions to the WNBA and women's sports have been extraordinary," NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement.

The search for Orender's successor will begin immediately, and NBA Senior Vice President, Team Marketing and Business Operations Chris Granger will oversee the league's operations on an interim basis.

its def an upgrade, i would of liked to see more DC imagery in the main logo. Also i like the red, white and blue but im not a fan of the silver much. I hope the Wizards make their new uniforms look like the vintage Bullets jerseys with the reaching hands logo and RWB. Look at the new Jazz and Golden State uniforms and how they look modern but traditional.
