The new Wiz owner is Caps owner/captain of the Internet Ted Leonsis, and, yes, he has a blog (and an excellent head of hair). As expected, he’s buying the the team and arena for the reported price of $550 million. Lucky for him, he already owns 44 percent, so he’ll only have to fork over a few hundred million bucks.
What does this mean for you, dear Wiz fans? Well, should you still exist, maybe a new GM. Maybe an attempt to void Gil’s contract. Maybe a Lottery WIN so John Wall or Evan Turner can be D.C.’s hoops version of Ovechkin.
But what I’d suggest Ted do right off the bat is simple, really: Change the colors back to red, white and blue. Ninety-three percent of Mr. Irrelevant readers approve, and Mr. Irrelevant readers are never wrong.
Regardless, hooray for the Wiz, and hooray for Ted. This is a good thing.
