Our fair nutmeg state has one top-tier professional sport to speak of. The Connecticut Sun of the Women’s National Basketball League. I know what you’re thinking, “The Sun? Isn’t Connecticut shrouded in New England cloud cover for 90 percent of the year?” Well yes, but the team’s name is not derived from an inaccurate description of our weather.

The Sun play their home games at Mohegan Sun Arena located at the Mohegan Sun Indian Reservation and Casino…naturally. This leads me to wonder:

Are the players of the Connecticut Sun exempt from federally mandated rules governing traveling calls, three second violations, and the like when they play on their home court?
