Back in October ’08 we first heard plans of Waffle House coming to DC by Washington Redskin Fred Smoot. This morning on the DC Sports Bog he repeats the claim:

“”The thing about it is, D.C. loves me as much as much as I love D.C.,” Smoot said. “I’m always gonna be a part of D.C. I’m actually in the process of starting a couple businesses up here. I’m bringing Waffle House to D.C. — I think they’ve been yearning for it for a long time. My first location is right off 14th and U, so I’m gonna always be back and forth here, and D.C. know I love them.”

Thanks to a reader for sending the word. Do you consider this good news or bad news? Since we first heard about it a couple of years ago, what are the odds that it’ll actually happen?
