Gilbert's Arena

Take a deep breath...

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I couldn't bring myself to do it. It would have wreaked of panic and desperation, and that wouldn't have been good for anyone. We Wizards/Bullets fans may have issues and complexes that have built up over the past 20 years, but it wouldn't be fair to use this site as an emotional outlet or on-line shrink. Keeping that in mind, I will attempt to summarize (calmly and coolly) what we have gotten ourselves into...

We are 4-6 in our last 10 games, and we have lost our last 4 games, including a heartbreaking loss to the Bucks on Wednesday night. We now have just a 1 game lead on the Bucks and Pacers, and just a 2 game lead on the Bulls and 76ers. So yes, you read that right, we are only 2 games out of the 9th spot in the East, with 4 games to play. The Washington Times does a nice job summarizing the obvious today, that we suck without a consistent 3rd scorer (I never thought I'd find myself missing Jarvis Hayes), but i think it's clear what the real problem is...


I'm not usually a superstitious person at all, especially when it comes to sports, but when you are as miserable of a franchise as the Bullards have been over the past 20 years, you can't take any chances. Clearly, someone or something has not been on our side over the past 20 years (or maybe the franchise was run by Wes Unseld), so why get all cocky and mess with karma now?

If anyone associated with the Wizards organization in any way somehow reads this blog, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure that those t-shirts do not make it to Chicago tonight.
