The GIST: With the Spirit assembling high-profile investors and the Wizards riding a winning streak, we’re just picking up dubs all over the District.
⚽️Spirit: Move over , there's another star-studded investor group in the NWSL. Yesterday, the Spirit announced the addition of a whopping 43 new investors. They include legendary 1999 World Cup goalkeeper , “Magnificent Seven” gold medalist gymnast and two former . What a squad.
- The Spirit aren’t back in business just yet. But two of the team’s newest players — defenders Kelley O’Hara and Emily Sonnett — return to the pitch tonight when the USWNT plays Canada in the SheBelieves Cup. Can’t wait.
🏀Wizards: The Wizards surprisingly won three straight games with last night’s victory over Nikola Jokić and the Denver Nuggets. League-leading scorer Bradley Beal poured in 25 points, including the free throws. Yet Dāvis Bertāns stole the show by shooting a career-high 35 points, including nine of 11 three-pointers. This man is on fire.
