Inside Comcast SportsNet’s Holiday Party

office-xmas.jpgI picked the wrong night to leave the camera at home, because the Comcast SportsNet open bar, karaoke and vintage hip-hop-fueled holiday jam was shockingly off the meter. Notables from the evening included but were not limited too:

  • Mike Sellers(!) in chill mode.
  • Ryan Zimmerman flexing after receiving congratulations for NOT being in the Mitchell Report.
  • Brian Mitchell getting low.
  • Nametags.
  • Doc Walker chomping on a cigar.
  • Ray Brown and wife doing their best Sugarhill Gang.
  • On-air folks Michael Jenkins, Lisa Hillary, Chris Miller, Russ Thaler, Kelli Johnson, Chick Hernandez and David Lee dancing and/or singing their pretty littles asses off.
  • Steinz and I, off to the side, gawking.

Of course, I was the kid in a candy store. Sweetest of all was Wizards broadcast partners Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier, away from the action, watching Washington-Miami on TNT (hence their night off). They were as into it as any superfan you’ll ever see, and Buckhantz even let loose with a signature, belt-adjusting “dagger!” near the end as DeShawn continued to not feel his face. That was fun. Really fun.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.
