John Wall's Washington
How fickle we are.
Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that Washington was all abuzz about some guy named Strasburg? You know, the pitching wunderkind who would save the Nationals. Well now we're all about the Wall -- John Wall. Let the frenzy begin anew.
The Wizards selected the freshman phenom point guard from the University of Kentucky -- the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft -- on Thursday. Wall quickly moved into Twitter's top 10 trending topics in the District. And now, before playing his first game in a Wizards uniform, Wall is being given his own day.
That's right, June 25, 2010, is being proclaimed by D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and the Washington Wizards as John Wall Day. They will welcome him to the Verizon Center at noon Friday.
Think we're really desperate for a winning season for the Wizards? Or are we just easily swayed whenever a new guy comes to town?
