  1. Frank Howard was #9 in DC until Ted Williams came in to coach in 1969. Howard used 33 for 1969-1970 and was gone after the 1971 season.

  2. I used to run into him at the ABC store in Vienna by Westwood. There is still some Frank Howard signed items in that liquor store. He was working as a scout for the Yankees last I saw him.

  3. Grunfeld has to be up there for longest tenured NBA GM’s right? I know the Kings guy Petrie has been there long but he’s been exec of the year twice and just took like a 60% pay cut to stay with the team.

    New blood isn’t a always a bad thing Ted.

  4. Was walking up 6th street from F to H at noon. Andre Blatche pulls up in his Rolls Royce convertible, does an illegal U turn, then parallel parks next to Coffee Beanery and walks in with a Nationals hat, cut off sweats, and sandals. Who parks a Rolls Royce convertible on the street. I certainly hope he left it there for a minute before parking it inside Verizon Center.
