The Black Hole Left by Baseball

The baseball off-season has reach full swing, which means it is now the time where nothing is happening and we are desperately wishing for the return of baseball. Without baseball I have turned desperate. For the first time since game five of the NLDS I went to a live sporting event. It was the Wizards. They did many a Wizards thing in their ninth loss in nine games, but I did notice that Bradley Beal is a great pure shooter. If left open he can make shots. The problem is there is no one on the Wizards that can help him get open. If they had John Wall healthy he could draw defenders while crashing the lane and that would help Beal to be open. How much that helps the Wizards, who right now have D league talent at most positions, is yet to be determined, but at least it will be fun to watch.

Also during this down time of baseball I have been watching RGIII, and if you haven’t yet you should. This kid has given me a new appreciation for football. There is nothing he doesn’t do well, and like his teammate Santana Moss said, put him on the field and he will do something amazing. He has thrown for twelve touchdowns and just three interceptions with a completion percentage of 67.1% which is in the top ten in the NFL and directly behind Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, and his three interception are tied for the lowest of any QB with Tom Brady. RGIII is a rookie, but he is already compiling stats that rank among the best QBs in football.
