The day after Warner Wolf got shit-canned from Channel 9 in 1995—he refused to stop running horse-racing highlights—Dan Rather phoned the sportscaster to say there are two kinds of people in the news business: those who have been fired and those who will be. But don’t cry for Wolf: WUSA would pay him more than $1 million over the next two years not to be on the air. And the District native soon landed the sports anchor spot on New York’s WCBS-TV. Regardless of his lousy Washington send-off, Wolf shows nothing but love for his hometown in Let’s Go to the Videotape!: All the Plays—and Replays—From My Life in Sports, a quick-read compendium of his 35-year job calling the shots. Affable and charming, Wolf delivers an endless string of cool stories, including the revelation that Hank Aaron actually hit 756 home runs—but was screwed by a notoriously blind ump. Wolf discusses and signs copies of his book at 7 p.m. at Olsson’s Books & Records, 1200 F St. NW. Free. (202) 347-3686. (Sean Daly)
