But then again, not many sports fans are Chelsea Clinton.
“This week has been an embarrassment of riches,” Clinton said in an exclusive interview with High Post Hoops before Tuesday night’s Mercury-Mystics game.
The New York resident brought her children with her to a book signing for her New York Times bestselling children’s book She Persisted in Phoenix less than 36 hours after they were all at Madison Square Garden on Monday for the Liberty-Storm game in what could be the final game the franchise ever plays at their long-time home.
Clinton expressed happiness at being able to get her kids out to sporting events, recalling how much she enjoyed attending basketball games at the University of Arkansas as a child and the impressions those left on her. She also remembered going to both men’s and women’s games during her time at Stanford University, which included the Stanford men reaching the 1998 Final Four.
Clinton met Liberty owner James Dolan for the first time on Monday at the final Liberty game at Madison Square Garden, remarking that she was thrilled he didn’t mind how much her kids were “into the game.” When asked about the Liberty’s impending sale, Clinton made her preferences for the team clear.
“I certainly hope they stay in New York,” Clinton said.
Could she be a perspective buyer? Clinton said any speculation about her interest in buying the team from Dolan was “news to her.”
But after the past few days, it’s clear Clinton is dedicated to the league.
