This Week’s City…
February 8, 2011 Leave a comment
The nation’s capital presents a mixed bag of good news and bad news for their sports fans. The good news: the Nationals signed Jayson Werth, will get Stephen Strasburg back mid-season from his elbow injury, and have mega-prospect Bryce Harper, still not old enough to vote, prepping in the minors. Additionally, Alex Ovechkin excites all fans and John Wall looks to be the bright new face that has been long-awaited for the Wizards franchise. The bad news: the Nationals and Wizards may still be years away from truly competing, Ovechkin is still overshadowed by Sidney Crosby and his Stanley Cup, and the Washington Redskins don’t seem to be heading in any direction after the failed Donovan McNabb/Albert Haynesworth experiments. It’s anybody’s guess as to what’s next on Capitol Hill.
Later in the week, we will have a post explaining the history of DC sports, the current vibe and an interview with TheNatsBlog’s Will Yoder. Stay Tuned!
