Wizards fans want a road win!
On December 16th, TruthAboutIt.net's Kyle Weidle wrote, in a post for DCist.com, "Impatience amongst Wizards fans is festering, and 'festering' is never a good word to associate with anything." More than a month later, the team is still winless on the road. If you care about the Washington Wizards, you know how hard it is to turn on the television, find yourself watching close wins turn into terrible loses, and then wonder where the last two hours went. You know that things will get better, eventually. You watch for the ups, which are often accompanied by a lot of downs, and you enjoy watching players develop and grow. But something has to give. Everyone has ideas about the key to changing this team, to turning them around, to making their greatness consistent and not limited to brief glimpses here and there. But the festering has given way to calls for firings, trades, and ultimata. We, the undersigned, may not agree on the route to changing this team. That said, a good place to start, for the fans, for the team, for the organization, is to win on the road. How ever it happens, through energy, coaching, good playing, or magic, we the undersigned formally request that the Wizards win at least one game on the road. We recognize that signing a petition to formally request that a team win may seem silly at first, and...well, it is a little silly, but hopefully it will show the team that we are still here. We would love more than one win, but you have to start small, which in this case only means being slightly better than the Kings, Cavs, or, division foes, the Bobcats. The Bobcats! Come on. With over 20 road games left, the opportunity to win is there. We, the undersigned, are fans, but we have some standards. What we ask may seem like a tall order, but this is basketball and everyone is pretty tall. One road win, please. Sincerely, The Undersigned
