Sights And Sounds From Wizards Fan Fest

Updated: October 4, 2010

As the Washington Wizards were going through the last of their training camp practices leading up to an intra-squad scrimmage on Sunday afternoon at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, in the parking lot of the Patriot Center, Wizards Fan Fest brought out the franchise faithful. There were games, clowns, Wizards girls, face painting, hoops instruction, music, trivia, old Washington Bullets signing autographs (Jeff Ruland, Kevin Grevey, Bob Dandridge and Gheorghe Muresan), and the what-not. Fans were happy. Fans were excited. And I was left with the impression that people are realistic — they know their basketball team is rebuilding and are keeping expectations low, but appreciate that courtesy of Ted Leonsis (along with being very, very lucky to land a player who can have a high impact off the court, beyond statistical measure, in John Wall), the ride along the path of rebuilding will be a lot more fun than the tough times and futile seasons of the past.

Below I’ve captured Fan Fest in a video and some pictures. Enjoy.

    So the interviewer has to be a buzz kill at the end about it ‘remaining to be seen’ after the guy talks about it being a good time to be a Wizards fan? ugh….no wonder no one reads this blog compared to the others.
