Out of town athletes need D.C. tutorial
I was talking to a fairly well-known MMA fighter on Monday night, and I asked him how much he knew about the D.C. sports scene. He mentioned how he knew the Skins were big, and how we also had the Sixers here, right?
I mention this not to be a jerk, but because it seems obvious that some out-of-town athletic stars could use a little D.C. tutorial. Like Natalie Gulbis, the LPGA icon who was in town this week to celebrate the U.S.'s Solheim Cup victory and to visit with the President. Some of the golfers also had a chance to tour the monuments, which is how the above image happened.
"Oops!" she later clarified. "Washington Memorial! typed before mind caught up. Sorry!"
("I have been to both monuments many times!" she later explained. "How stupid to be inaccurate on one of our National Monuments!")
