They're not even playing the championship at Cap One...

 

Fine by me. Closer to home in Fairfax!

How is this funny? They played at Smith Center (GW) and since that's taken they're going to Mason. 

 

Damn. I might actually make it out there. Already been to 2 Stanley Cup Finals games this year. Another Finals game wouldn't hurt.

Couldn't be happier for the Mystics. They were charter members of the WNBA and while basketball, as a whole, doesn't really do much for me, they represent my hometown and haven't done anything to overtly disgrace it. They were also very accommodating to the Capitals and the team's fans for letting them come to one of their games free of charge since it was ahead of the 5th Stanley Cup Final game.

 

It's Seattle and Washington for the championship, just like it was 40 years ago. Let's go Mystics! 

 

(Also, CapOne Center is under renovation right now)

What a beautiful front page. If you weren't on the bandwagon, honestly it's okay to jump on. We want you to.

That banner raising was awesome and just so well done, so tasteful and respectful but emotional as well. It wasn't just a hockey championship banner, it was a championship banner for ALL of DC as John Walton so eloquently put it in his speech.

Wizards only team still cursed. Every other team in DC is making the playoffs or the finals! Even the Nationals had a bad year and finished above .500! And the Wizards are LAST in the East :rofl89:

 

Redskins - 5-2

Nationals - 82-80? 

Capitals - SC Champs

Valor - Arena Bowl champs

Mystics - Eastern Conference Champions

DC United - 4th seed in MLS playoffs, playing playoff game at home tomorrow 

 

Wizards - last in the East :rofl89:

Curse is for championships, not regular season.  

 

Caps appeared the playoffs regularly for 10 years but couldn't get past the second round.  Were still considered cursed.

I don't know if it's cursed. 

 

United won a knockout round game against New England a few years back. They made it to the EC Semifinal against NY (can't remember red bulls or CFC) and lost. 

 

Yesterday was pretty good and raucous atmosphere. On paper United had the advantage as they ended season strong while Columbus limped into playoffs. But the game on the field was a different story. United scored first but then Columbus equalized right in front of me a few minutes later. United had many good opportunities but missed. They seemed too hesitant to shoot at times. 

 

You saw a team like NYCFC control the game against Philadelphia and win 3-1 (they led 2-0 early after about 30 minutes). If United put an effort like that the story might have been different. Credit to Crew though.

After last night, can we add DC United to the “cursed” list?

Pretty sure they were the only DC team winning championships between the Redskins last and and Caps this year.  I think they can be cursed just like any other DC team, but have they had it as bad as the others this century? Debatable. You can make argument they only team that's had more success then the caps in that time span.

 

Ix touched on it, there's a difference between possible dark arts being involved and just losing to a better team like what happened last night.

 I went to three games in the last four days and all three teams lost with awful officiating (United, Vt, redskins)

Stop rooting for the Lakers and I guarantee you one more team will have good things happen to them around here...
