D.C. Sports Fans are on a High for Awhile

Sports fans in Washington, D.C. finally have some hope that the future for their major sports franchises will be better than the recent past.

In Phoenix last night, the Washington Wizards lost to the Suns by 102 – 90 in a game that was close only through the middle of the 2nd quarter.
