If Leonsis puts in the same time, patience and money as he did for the Caps, the Wiz should be good again in 3-4 years. I am looking forward to it!

I think you meant "buy", but I knew what you meant. Only a miracle could have Easy Teddy buying the Slins too.

Maybe the Wiz can become just as adept at blowing 3-1 series leads as the Caps.

Oh joy

Extraodinarily, but quietly philanthropic?? Is that what you mean?
