New, comments

Washington, D.C. — a good and civilized sports town — demonstrates how athletes and fans can engage online in a positive and mutually beneficial manner.

(1) Fan initiates with a friendly approach
(2) Athlete reciprocates with an honest reply
(3) Fan offers a thought, respects personal space
(4) Athlete acknowledges appreciation, repays gesture with a compliment

That's it! See, it's OK and not at all hard to be normal and kind to each other online.
