Wiz win lottery, the video

"I know Mr. Pollin had his finger in this pie someplace," Ted Leonsis said after the Wiz won the lottery. "It's a great thing for the franchise. Having had a first [overall] pick in the NHL, and seeing how that turned out, I think this is a great day for the franchise."

"Fantastic, and I'm so glad I had this ring on," said Irene Pollin, gesturing to her late husband's championship ring. "My husband I think is really here. His spirit is here."

Good times. And the sales people didn't really mess around over at on Tuesday night, did they?

When I read Dan's column this AM, I actually thought it was a curse breaker. Sad trip down memory lane of the lottery -- until tonight. This piece and Irene wearing Abe's ring brings John Wall's dance to DC.

We need to get Wall or Turner and continue the rebirth of this franchise.

The Wizards should definitely pick John Wall with the first pick, he is the best player in the draft.

Check out my blog post on the draft:

I'm not going to begrudge them the insta-marketing, Tottenham was trying to sell me season-in-review DVDs pretty much the moment they beat Man City to get to Champions League. (Crass sports marketing is transcontinental)
