There are bandwagon Wizards fans, you say? 

Go figure. No, really, go find a computer to process the pixels and figure it out.

OR… You can just head to the Washington City Paper website to check out a piece I wrote for them called “How to Hop on the Wizards Bandwagon.”

But first, we shall start with a question which is an accompaniment to the WCP primer, which, if you are reading this here site, includes a bunch of stuff that you may or may not already know.

The Question:

Who or what is the Theodore Unit?

To some, such as Wikipedia, the Theodore Unit is a “loose collective of Staten Island rappers associated with the Wu-Tang Clan’s rapper and executive Ghostface Killah.”

To Wizards and Caps fans like (or just me on Twitter), the Theodore Unit is a new-age, beatnik pixel poet who pounds the keys for his blog, Ted’s Take, like a bongo and conveys a rhythmic procession as if snapping a finger and nodding a wink at you from across a smoky room while wearing a leather jacket-Fedora combo and standing next to Henry Winkler as he exists today. The Theodore Unit is also majority owner of three professional sports teams and an arena in the nation’s capital.

Make sense? OK, now go read that City Paper piece.

Also, while you’re at it, check out an ESPN 5-on-5 roundtable I participated in about tonight’s NBA Playoffs Game 3s.
