DC Playoff Failures.
« Topic Start: May 10, 2017, 10:12:25 PM »
It seems the Caps, Wiz and Nats cannot get past the round of 8. The Redskins not even that far. I have given up on a title. Which team will be the first to make it to the final four in one of the 4 major sports.

2 time defending champions of the women's league, the DC Divas (even though they are currently on a 3 game losing skid and got blanked by boston over the weekend :?). Plus, they bake cookies to share with their fanbase after every home game. :twisted:

Ok. Just the four major MENS sports. No chick teams. Sorry to be sexist. Actually not sorry.

It is true about the Mystics though - now in their 20th season and only one playoff series win in their entire history  (and that was back in 2002).

Because it's MY thread. And no one watches chick sports.

Had dinner with them Tuesday at CCSP.   I like the Tuesday bartenders at CCSP so often go there for 1/2 price wings that night.  I think the Divas meet and go over films on Tuesdays, too.

Right now, Spider is thinking of how he could respond to the "go over films" comment. Remember, this is the public portion of the message board ;)

Are Nationals fans allowed to complain about playoff futility with Atlanta in the same division? Seems gaudy.

Yes. Because they sometimes made it past the first round.

The USWNT probably would have kicked the crap out the USMNT in the late 90s  :P

The first to clearly answer the question.

I wonder. Could it be the 2016-17 Wizards?  The NBA wants a Boston Cleveland series so will not be easy.

Several. Four major sports. Not some third rate soccer league.

While not the EPL, MLS is actually decent soccer.

Doubtful considering that the last two times the USWNT has played the US U-17 team, they got worked six ways to Sunday

Miss District of Columbia, Kara McCullough, a scientist, is the WINNER in the 2017 Miss USA Pageant on Fox.


Looking at Hot Women is a major sport.

That's Back to Back for the Miss DC representative in the Miss USA Pageant. The 2016 winner wore an afro hair style for her final walk, to honor her mother on Mother's Day, who died shortly after she won the crown.

Imagine a date where she wants to discuss thermonuclear science.      Ah Bach.

Nice. So we can win at something.
