City Paper is not for tourists
The Wizards will be handing out white towels at Verizon Center
tonight Thursday and are asking fans to wave them during Game 3 against the Cavaliers.
Monday’s 30-point loss in Cleveland, a humiliation that put the Wiz down 2-0 in the best-of-seven series, really makes this gimmick seem wrongheaded.
When I heard the radio ads promoting the mass white-towel waving, my first thoughts were of a fabulous Cheap Trick single from 1978, when both the band and the local NBA franchise had their best year.
Neither Game 3 nor Game 4, also at Verizon Center, is sold out.
