Olympus doesn't surprise me.  Volvo and Mitsubishi suprise me a little bit.

Mitsubishi surprised me, they make an excellent product...  our economy is killing off a lot of these brands, bad management others.

As unprofitable as the WNBA probably is (I don't know how much the women are making, which is generally the biggest cost driver in pro sport), I highly doubt the progressives are going to let the only women's professional sport fold without a fight. Unless, of course, they decide to hitch their wagons to the still unstable and only regionally successful women's soccer circuit. If the price is right, the arenas like the WNBA because even at those low numbers, it still fills arenas better than indoor football or any other summer sport. Sponsors like the WNBA because it gives them an angle to market their wares to women (see: Nike and Gatorade, where they throw a token woman athlete into every ad, it seems).
