We talk about it and we actually did it this time. When a player's out, you have to kind of forget about her in a way, you have to focus on who can play and go into the game with those players. But now that Betty's back I can definitely say honestly that we definitely missed her, and it was good to see her play the way she did, especially on her first time out.Sue Bird
