We’re headed into some lean times, people.
With no local sports on television last night, we were all forced to find something else to do. Ian Desmond learned how to use Twitter. RGIII and Brandon Banks spent the night keeping Niles Paul out of something called a “Long Hair Don’t Care Crew.” Brian Orakpo took the time to have some serious face time with his son over applesauce.
While days without DMV sports will be few and far between, it’s no secret that summer is the hardest part of the year for sports fans and bloggers alike. But if we stick together, we’ll get through this.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
