As Steve Goff has already noted, RFK Stadium is currently tricked out with a basketball court, a boxing ring, 60 yards worth of a football field, great amounts of television equipment and lights, and diagrams for yet more fantastical sports competitions. Never mind that D.C. United is getting ready to finish its season and begin the playoffs as the top overall seed; Pros vs. Joes is in town!
While Ben Olsen's offer to become one of the Pros didn't seem to gain much traction today, there are a bunch of big names still floating about as possible Pros. The confirmed Pros for tomorrow's taping include Marty McSorley, Derrick Coleman and Jessie Armstead.
With the impending arrival of a Hollywood United squad for Saturday's Marco Etcheverry tribute game, which will feature "Without a Trace" star Anthony LaPaglia, Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell and Hootie & the Blowfish drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, this is indeed a banner week for that stadium that Thomas Boswell has already bid goodbye.
