Not sure where else to put this, but an interesting article in the WaPo this AM, with quotes from a number of athletes comparing DC's effort to catch up with Boston's all-in fan base. Mods, feel free to move to a more appropriate location:

“I think Boston fans are spoiled with the amount of championships they’ve had in all four sports in the last, whatever it is, 10 or 12 years,” said Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik, an avid sports fan who played at Boston College. “It’s crazy. I don’t think any city compares to it.”
