Councilmember Brooke Pinto wrote in response to a Sports Illustrated article:

“A thriving Capitol One arena in the center of Downtown DC cannot be taken for granted. It is also vital for the economic recovery of our city. We must all stand together to ensure @MonSportsNet continue to call DC home.”

Sports Illustrated wrote: “Monumental Sports & Entertainment—the group that owns the Wizards and Capitals, as well as the Mystics—has reportedly spoken to governmental officials about potentially moving the two teams from Washington D.C. to Northern Virginia”

So if, God forbid, any of those teams moved – would you still support them? Would you travel to Crystal City/Ballston/Northern Virginia to catch a game live?

Update:

“Dear PoPville,

Last night my friend and I came to a hockey game and when security personnel saw Ukrainian flags, they told us Ukrainian flags are not permitted by Capital One Arena and wouldn’t let us in unless we get rid of the flags.

Keep in mind Ovechkin, the captain of Capitals still has a profile photo on his Instagram with Putin.”
