Wizards fans want ketchup, mustard, draft picks

At Ted Leonsis's "I'm-buying-the-Wizards" press conference last week, he mentioned having already gotten three e-mails from one fan about the ketchup dispenser and ketchup quality at Verizon Center.Turns out this fan has a soulmate somewhere out there in Internet land, because Leonsis has also gotten fan e-mails about the mustard at Verizon Center. One Strasburg program to the first fan who e-mails Leonsis to complain about the relish.

Leonsis wrote on his blog on Monday that he has already read more than 2,000 e-mails from Wizards fans, and their concerns range from the serious ("Want more web analytics made available -- don't be afraid to publish stats) to the humorous ("Make cheerleading squad more family oriented") to the ridiculous ("Fresher hot dog buns"). I'll pick six that I agree with, but you should go examine the entire list:

* Play less loud music during the games -- want to hear the sneakers on the floor.

* Vegetarian fare on menu.

* Don't trade your first round picks.

* More Wizards history evident in building. Want to see more alumni at games.

* Create more and better merchandising options.

* Change colors for team uniforms.

Well, I guess "Win a championship" isn't bad, either. Leonsis already had a conference call with a 2.000 fans last week, and will host several hundred former season-ticket holders at Verizon Center tonight. The event is closed to the media. Someone, for the love of Wes Unseld, ask about Verizon Center's barbecue sauce.
