My colleague Chris Cillizza has a great weekly feature called “Worst Week in Washington,” where he spotlights a political figure who has landed on the wrong side of the press. I’m stealing a page out of his playbook, and it was my original intention to award a “Worst Week” to a D.C. sports figure every Friday. But I’m generally not a cranky person, so I decided that the Bog version should be all puppies and chocolate-chip cookies. So here’s “Best Week in Washington Sports.”
The short headline on Wednesday’s summer league story was “Vesely powers Wizards to victory.” Really, it was. Jan Vesely went 9-of-11 for 18 points in 22 minutes against the Nuggets on Tuesday. And hey, look! A dunk!
“I just came here to work hard,” Vesely said. “I just need to settle down and play my game.”
I know, I know. You’re saying, “Sarah. I know it’s the slowest week in sports and all, but should we really be glorifying a summer league performance as being an athlete’s best week?” To which I reply, Shhh. Look over there. A fadeaway jumper!
