CHICAGO – Catherine Kraayeveld plays for the Chicago Sky of the WNBA, but she grew up in the Seattle area and went to Lake Washington High School in Kirkland.
She has a friendly wager on today’s game with Candace Parker, who went to Naperville Central High in the Chicago area.
“When, not if, the Bears win, Catherine must buy me Portillo’s, the best fast food restaurant in Chicago,” Parker told the Chicago Tribune.
Countered Kraayeveld, whose father, Dave, played for the Seahawks, “We’ve got some crazy fans here in Seattle; they’re way louder that the Mutes of the Midway. Hey, I love my adopted home of Chicago where fans have been great to me, but blood is thicker than water.”
