D.C. United is the New Wiz


Gonzalo Martinez and the number 23.

The Wiz could still be the new Wiz, if they would win, but losing makes them the old Wiz, and one more loss will make them the ex-Wiz, and so it's time to find the new Wiz.

That would appear to be D.C. United. Not only do they have a team-employed blogger who steals my best potential material, but they have two features that make (some) Wiz home playoff games great:

* Gheorghe Muresan, posing for funny pictures, AND

* Star players whom you wouldn't want to anger with things shaved into the backs of their heads.

Nicely done, Gonzalo Martinez. Now can you guys beat the Cavs?

(PS: Big Gheorghe won free pizza for the entire crowd yesterday by executing a dunk. I believe the gimmick was that first an ordinary guy missed a long shot for pizza, disappointing the crowd, but then Gheorghe's dunk atttempt was announced, which should have led to glee, except I believe that I wasn't the only one who worried that Big Gheorghe might come up a little short. He made it, thankfully.)

If Ben Olsen was fit, I would answer yes without asking "In what sport?"

I was nervous . . . .

I'm pretty sure the blog was begun so the team would keep players. I really like Martinez. Don't mess this up, Steinbog.
