Apparently I forgot to mention basketball on my sports page originally, so I had to add a bit about how I like the Wizards. Being in that frame of mind, comes the first sports-related post to this blog. (Surprise! And you all thought it would be hockey related. Actually, I did too.)
So the other night, the Washington Wizards beat the Cleveland Cavaliers with a final score of 80-77. This is blog-worthy for a number of reasons. First of all, this season, the Cavs are in the top 5 teams of the NBA and the Wizards are in the bottom 5 of the league. So it was a great underdog victory! Another reason this game’s result was so great is because both sides of my family are from Cleveland. My mom’s family who is still living in Cleveland, are huge fans of the Cavaliers. It’s also always nice to brag about a win for my city, since there is a sort of “rivalry” in my family between Washington D.C. and Cleveland, sports teams wise.
