I’m in the Washington DC area, and I was listening to some of what passes for sports talk here.
The guy (whoever it was on 980 AM) was pretty optimistic for Washington, but not so much for Baltimore. He said the Orioles stunk, and they needed the ballpark to rescue attendance. He then mentioned how the Nationals were going to be good this year; the Capitals at least made the playoffs (with 8 out of 15 teams in the conference making them, by the way) and how Kyle Shanahan is already down in Waco; the home of Baylor football. Interesting.
Sorry Washington. It’s not all coming up roses. The Nationals won’t win a division unless the Phillies AND Braves get kidnapped; the Capitals just don’t have the fire that serious Cup contenders have, and the Redskins are light-years from contending for anything…much less after getting their cap situation hammered. The guy didn’t even mention the Wizards, who might have the brightest outlook of them all if they win #1 pick overall.
