“Hey, look, it’s two former Lottery picks, a certain 2013 Lottery pick and a guy who went to the Final Four in college and is now the leader of a team taking the defending NBA champs to the brink in the Eastern Conference Finals.”
(“Oh, and David Falk.”)
I feel like that might be effective.
“I appreciate my fellow Hoyas flying 2 Miami 2support me,” Roy Hibbert posted on Twitter late Thursday, along with this photo of Otto Porter, Greg Monroe and Jeff Green.

RFK STADIUM FOOD PRAISED
Travel and Leisure magazine ranked the best stadium food in the country, and RFK Stadium somehow wound up on the list. Via the write-up:
“Sure, hot dogs and nachos can be had at RFK Stadium, but the real appeal lies in its wide variety of Latin and South American foods, including handmade pupusas and carne asada at the grill stands, jerk chicken at the Jamaican stand, and El Salvadorian sausage at an outpost of Logan’s Sausage, a family-run operation since 1987.”
As DCist’s Pablo Maurer noted, “For all these years, I thought RFK was more of a haven of pump cheese and indeterminate meat cylinders, food options designed more to soak up cheap beer and whiskey than anything else.”
WISE IN THE NEWS
Mike Wise attracted a bit of online attention on Thursday when he was spotted during RGIII’s press conference wearing a Native American-themed shirt. But he was not attempting to say anything.
“No message being sent,” he told The Big Lead, in remarks echoed on his Twitter account. “It was my Dad’s favorite shirt. He passed away in February. I’ve got six shirts from the same company that are native American made.”
SIGN OF THE NIGHT
MASN captured a lot of couples and families with mixed loyalties Thursday night. This was the best. Via @recordsANDradio.
BOZ ON THE NATS
This is sobering, from Boz: “How lost are the Nats? Ian Desmond, a team leader, offered this final comment on the Nats inability to figure out that Garcia was basically throwing the same pitch — a forkball — in every meaningful count: ‘Not making an excuse, but our first base coach is on maternity leave.’ Say again? With Tony Tarasco away for a few days, the Nats have used hitting coach Rick Eckstein to coach at first. So, Eck can’t stay on the bench, hold hands with hitters and whisper, ‘Don’t swing at splitters in the dirt.’ ”
WHAT TO WATCH TODAY
The Nats are in Atlanta at 7:30 on MASN. This is getting serious, too. All TV and radio listings are here.
