On Monday, the Washington Mystics, the 2019 WNBA CHAMPIONS, were on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” If you were in the D.C. area, you would have seen this on WJLA-TV or Channel 7.
in their broadcast appearance, 2019 WNBA Most Valuable Player Elena Delle Donne and 2019 WNBA All-Star Kristi Toliver spoke on behalf of the team. You can watch their appearance above. And check out some photos from the social media feeds below!

Two members of the championship team, WNBA Finals MVP Emma Meesseman and Kim Mestdagh were absent due to pending commitments with international teams and a need to take a break in Belgium, their home country.
I’m going off-topic here and was going to write on Belgian reactions to the WNBA Finals, but the reactions here at home were bigger than even I anticipated. I’ll write about reactions there sometime this week, especially since there are Dutch and French things to decipher, some of which I can understand easily, others which I can’t. But I promise, you will get that post this week.
But anyway, they flew BUSINESS CLASS back to Europe on Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s flagship airline.l last weekend.
So while the Mystics were living it up in New York, Meesseman and Mestdagh could have been flying from Loudoun County (where Dulles Airport is) to Zaventem (where Brussels Airport is) in a ho-hum economy class flight with Brussels Airlines or United Airlines, one of their partners.
Thanks @FlyingBrussels, you guys are the real MVP for upgrading @MestdaghKim, my mother and I to business!— Emma Meesseman (@EmmaMeesseman) October 12, 2019
Before I go “dark,” I will just leave it there. I’m just happy that Belgium gave them a nicer trip back home. I will write more on the Belgian reaction later this week.
