Grudge Match: Media to Face D.C. Council in Hoops
We face off each day: the D.C. Council members and the media that cover them. But never quite like this: At 4 p.m. today, the two camps will take their differences to the basketball court at Verizon Center for a charity game that has been years in the making.
The game will be four 7-minute quarters, preceding the girls' and boys' city title games, which follow at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets to those games -- which cost $15 -- will get you into the undercard between the media and council, though probably you should be paid by us to come watch.
The council got uniforms (see Yvette Alexander holding hers), though we're still waiting for ours. But the media team has been practicing at a Capitol Hill court (see below) near the home of WTOP's Mark Segraves, who has been the force behind the game, and we're feeling good about our chances. In particular, we're confident that the council will have no answer for our star player, the Washington Business Journal's Jonathan O'Connell. (See video above.)
