An Invitation From Ted
It's not often that the Chairman of a major sports empire invites the fans over for a chat. But ever since Ted Leonsis and his partners (already the owners of the Mystics and the Caps) took over full ownership last week of the Wizards and the Verizon Center, Ted's been making himself even more accessible to fans than he already has been.
Last night, Ted held a meeting with Wizards fans, and he's now invited Mystics fans over to the Phone Booth for a "Town Hall Meeting" this Thursday at 7 PM to respond to fans' questions and comments. Ted has famously said that he does not consider the Mystics to be a stepchild to the Wizards any more than he loves his daughter less then he loves his son, and we believe that's true.
So if you're a Mystics fan and you have some questions or suggestions for Ted, RSVP for the Town Hall Meeting here, and head on over to the Phone Booth on Thursday evening. Apparently, no issue will be too small to discuss -- Wizards fans have already suggested to Ted that the mustard and ketchup containers at the Verizon Center be refilled! (Hmm . . . our wish list would include fixing the latches on the stalls in the women's rooms so the doors stay closed!)
While we don't minimize the importance of condiments (or bathroom doors), what we're really looking forward to hearing more about is Ted's (and Sheila's) vision for the Mystics and how the Mystics now relate to their brother-teams, the Wizards and the Caps. See you Thursday!
