One of the reasons for the sporadic posting today is that I was down at the Verizon Center, chasing something that never quite came together like I had hoped. Despite that, the trip was worth it: I was able to meet forward Caron Butler of the Washington Wizards and get a picture of him holding a “Vote the Redskins Ticket” bumper sticker. Any day when you can honestly type that phrase is a day worth getting out of bed for.
And, as Butler knows a thing or two about effective All-Star vote campaigns, this picture feels to me like a good omen. Between this and Clinton Portis’s fifth nomination earlier, it’s just been a voting kinda day for me.
