Lynx fans watching the WNBA finals might have noticed a certain accoutrement toted by rapper Lil Wayne. If it looked suspiciously like a purse, that’s because it was. The "murse," or man purse, might not sound like something that masculine types would even consider, but it's proving popular among not only celebrities but stylish men of a certain age.

From 'Murses' make their mark. Old story, but apparently I'm not stylish enough to have caught on until a friend passed it on to me today.

The Minnesota Lynx’s three-game sweep of the Atlanta Dream to capture the WNBA Championship generated a viewership increase on ESPN. Viewership for the WNBA Finals was up four percent over the 2010 championship series. This year’s series on ESPN and ESPN2 collectively averaged 515,000 viewers, an increase over the average audience of 495,000 viewers across ABC and ESPN2 in 2010. Viewership for this year’s decisive Game 3 was up 10 percent compared to last year’s Game 3 telecast (600,000 vs. 545,000 viewers), which featured the Atlanta Dream and Seattle Storm, the eventual champion.

As released by ESPN and the WNBA today. So not only were there more fans in the stands (39,504 total in 2010 to 41,925 in 2011 - a 6.1% increase), but also more eyes on the tv - any increase (even 4%) is always a win in my book.

2011 WNBA Finals: SB Nation Reacts To The Minnesota Lynx' Title

Kris Willis' storystream over at SB Nation Atlanta is linked above because he was present for Game 3 with updates and ongoing analysis while Canis Hoopus kept it simple for now, although they've been pretty good at posting game summaries during the playoffs so check 'em out. But SBN Minnesota had a brief reaction as well, which is short but noteworthy when thinking about the growth of the league: "We hope to expand our coverage of the Lynx significantly going into the 2012 WNBA season." We hope so too - this was the kind of run and brand of basketball that makes for a really strong advertisement for the league and gives Minnesotans plenty of reason for excitement moving forward.
