ESPN 50 States Tour

As you may or may not know, ESPN Sportscenter is visiting 50 states in 50 days in order to show sports in various states. In reality, they are probably hoping for some improved ratings during the summer and are able to fill some time before football season begins. Anyway, since Washington DC is not a state, they are not getting any coverage. Mayor Anthony Williams submitted a press release questioning why ESPN snubbed the District. Personally, I think DC government should focus on other issues such as the budget, statehood and education, but I agree with Williams. The Washington Area Frisbee Club, in which I am a part of, is following the Mayor's lead by attempting to get ESPN to visit DC to showcase Ultimate Frisbee as among the largest co-ed participant sports played in DC. If you are interested in finding out more about this, check out the WAFC website.
