D.C.: To all the teams we’ve loved before

🏈Washington Football Team (WFT): The WFT made a QB signing...it just wasn’t exactly the big splash we hoped for. Playoff legend Taylor Heinicke (pronounced HIGH-NUH-KEY) will stay in the District, signing a two-year deal yesterday. That said, we think he’ll still be a backup.

  • As for starters, with Alex Smith’s uncertain return, Kyle Allen not yet re-signed and injury concerns for both, WFT’s QB situation remains in flux. After losing out on the Matt Stafford sweepstakes last month, the team is still exploring their options.

🏀Wizards: The Wizards couldn’t defy gravity, falling to the Toronto Raptors 137–114 yesterday. Despite the loss, we’re choosing to find joy in the little things. 

  • Little things like, although he didn’t get to match up against his countryman, Rui Hachimura threw down a nice dunk. And rookie Deni Avdija impressed us with this sweet one-handed pass. The kids are alright.

🏒Capitals: If you were wondering when the Caps play next, well, they’re on a break. Three Caps’ games were postponed this week but they’re scheduled to return to the ice on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. On the bright side, no Caps appeared on the COVID-19 protocol list. Knock on wood.
