Do Caps fans veer Republican?

More details from the WaPo poll about D.C. sports fans and their favorite teams:

* Of locals who have a favorite local team, 25 percent of northern Virginians chose the Caps, compared with 19 percent of Marylanders and 9 percent of District residents. Support for the Caps was higher outside the Beltway than inside.

* Nearly three in 10 white residents called the Capitals their favorites, more than double the level among non-whites.

* Republicans (30 percent) and independents (26 percent) were more likely to call the Caps their top team than were Democrats (17 percent).

Other things that happened:

* Lil Wayne thinks the McNabb trade "will be a great thing for all involved, except the Eagles." (MTV, via @Truth_About_It)

* I just love Danny Granger's reaction upon losing to the Wizards. "That little guard, I don't even know his name. No. 9, down the stretch, he was pretty good," said Granger, who had to look at the box score to figure out Cedric Jackson's name.

* Sixers GM Ed Stefanski, upon firing Eddie Jordan: "What I thought would happen did not occur, the decision was not a right one. That's why I made the choice to go now in a different direction to get someone to get us the right path." (From SB Nation)

* Miss Cleo says LeBron James will sign with the Wizards. Via The Examiner. And really, why not?

Would love to see LeBron sign with the Wiz.

With that said, Miss Cleo needs to pass me whatever she is smoking because it is obviously much more superior to the medical grade stuff I get.
