It's common knowledge among parents that when you bring a kid to a game, their attention span will last as long as the snacks they're eating. Then they'll have to go to the bathroom. Or start to whine or cry. Then eventually pass out on your shoulder or in a baby carriage. Such was the case the past few nights in both Lake Buena Vista and Bradenton, Fla. where the NBA and WNBA played their respective games. There was a "Baby Section"inside each bubble, where the players' families were allowed to watch the games (separated at least six feet apart from each other).
It also made for great entertainment, because the players' kids were interested in anything but the game. Take Connecticut Suns guard Bria Holmes' daughter, Diona, known affectionately to fans as "Baby D." Never mind that her mom was working her butt off on the court. Baby D had her snacks and a comfortable place to nap.
During a Sept. 1 game, D was comfortable as heck in her carriage, sporting overalls and munching on eats. When that was done, she leaned back for a nap. Hey, we've all been there. You show up at a game and then it extends way past your bed time.
