I may have to make it to a Wizards game this year. I haven't been back since a Wizards/Bulls game a few years ago that was the most painful professional sports experience of my lifetime. I don't think I've seen two more incompetent teams on the court at the same time.
I'm glad that the Wizards are doing well this year, but my brain just has trouble dealing with that reality. The Bullets/Wizards are never allowed to be good, ever! It's just the way things always have been and always will be, right?Posted by: Drew on February 8, 2005 02:15 PM
Believe it or not, the Wizards actually are good this year. So get out and see them, the crowd is almost as anemic as the good seats at U-Hall where all the alumni sat for UVA hoops games. The team could use some more cheering. In fact, the biggest pop of the night came when a guy hit a three pointer during the 3rd quarter break to win everyone in the place a free pizza (redeemable today only). 2nd biggest cheer was when they put that energy meter up that "measures" how loud the crowd is cheering.
Oh, and a slight correction for you Tom. If things stay as they are, the Wiz will nab the 4th seed and face off against the Heat in the 2nd round (if they make it that far). So they might have a shot at winning a playoff series.
Wizards, pure energy! (What kind of a slogan is that?)Posted by: brian on February 8, 2005 04:17 PM
