BREAKING NEWS: FIRST BALLPARK VOTE IS APPROVED!

Williams’s Plan Gets Preliminary ApprovalThe Post

Bill Faces Final Vote on Dec. 14 or 21

WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO! The council in a 6-4-3 double play, err, 6 yays, 4 nays, and 3 absentions, voted to approve ballpark funding. We have one more tough hurdle to get through and the next two or three weeks will be hard. Hopefully, our dream will be realized. The debate within myself is whether to get that blue Nats hat that I like — gosh, I feel like Linda Cropp.

IS TODAY THE DAY?

Will there be agony or ecstasy? Has Linda Cropp fouled it all up again? Will they even vote? I am going to try and avoid the news while I am at work, this is the sort of thing that can kill productivity.

Cropp Offers Alternate Funding PlanThe Post

I am simply shocked, shocked that Cropp would propose something at the last minute. I am not even going to try the tea leaves on this one, rather just hope they do not blow it. The Wash. Times has a more optimistic article: Stadium approval coming today.


Thomas Boswell – Hot Stove Puts Redskins On the Back BurnerThe Post

I am not sure I agree with all of Boswell’s conclusions and he acts as though ballpark funding was fait accompli. It is not, as we all know. I just hope they cut a deal today.

The D.C. Council has the power to make the home team arrive for good by passing the funding bill tomorrow. Make it happen!

    BLACK FRIDAY

    Today is the busiest shopping day of the year, they say. I am going to celebrate the way I always do, by going to work and avoiding malls and big box stores at all costs.


    SEASON TICKET CLARIFICATION

    After a long absence, an alert reader in Fairfax e-mailed me to clarify how many season tickets have been sold:

    I think you’re miscounting the deposits on season tickets. I put down money for 4 season tickets. But the way I had to enter it on the website, I put down 4 “deposits”. You have to put a deposit on each seat you want. So, if you want 10 seats, you put down 10 deposits.

    So, 15,000 deposits means the same as 15,000 seats.

    The attendance, then, is already more than 1.2 million — a phenomenal total, since the council hasn’t even voted yet. Watch what happens when partial game plans go on sale (assuming of course that the council will get the deal done).

    Thank you, ARIF!

    There is not much that we do not already know in this article, but it is nice to be reminded of him aggravating Dan Synder, boy owner of the Washington Red-faces.
