Rain doesn't dampen Indiana Fever WNBA championship celebration downtown

Fever claim WNBA title

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Fever and their fans didn't let a little rain ruin their celebration of the WNBA championship.

The team and several thousand fans moved their party indoors to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday as morning rain scrapped plans for a parade.

The Fever wrapped up the title Sunday night, beating the Minnesota Lynx three games to one.

The biggest cheers came for coach Lin Dunn and the players. Noting the rain, Dunn said her team was used to making adjustments.

"Thank you fans. Thank you guys so much," Fever guard Katie Douglas told the crowd. "You guys are so awesome!"

Loyal fans said they're glad to see the team finally get its due.

"I'm a Fever fan to the end, honey. Rain, sleet or snow, the Fever are on the go. That's how much of a Fever fan I am," fan Arlene Baker said.

"I'm just an emotional person," said fan Karen Johnson, wiping away tears. "I'm happy. It's a happy tear."
