Local DC Guy here and since finding this site I've been giving some serious thought to writing about some of my local teams because while DC does have a lot of news venues the sports coverage besides the Skins has been severely lacking.
I thought you might be interested in reading this. I'm pre-empting the NHL's announcement, scheduled for sometime next week.
Don't hesitate to write an article. It has been very rewarding for me and it's helping me follow more teams. While I focus on the NHL, I might branch out when college football starts. Thanks for the comment on my recent article about Ovechkin reaching 50 goals! And thanks for reading. When you start writing, let me know, I'd like to read your stuff.
