My parents took us away from DC when we were kids, but I always followed the Bullets from Phoenix. I was dumbfounded when the name changed to the Wizards. Why the WIZARDS? At that point, I could never go home again, and the Bullet Nation in Exile was born.

I started off thinking Mitch Richmond for Chris Webber was a good trade as a young lad, to vigorously defending the Kirk Hinrich acquisition. I love my baby boy, the Bullets, and anything that gets me pumped.

It's a big step towards confirming the Standard Model of particle physics.
