As it would happen, I was invited to meet a friend down near the Capitol yesterday, and like many (too many), I was stuck waiting for the disaster of all disasters in this town on weekends, the METRO to arrive and actually make it to the stop to which I was heading. This offered the opportunity to run into several former basketball game attendees who had given up tickets.
Just a thought to THE, find a way to reach out to us and give us an early game for a purchase of 2 or more billets to league matchups.
The common tune is "IS it safe to come out, yet?"
No one is ready for the full season--the trauma is deep, for many. Just know that there is interest.
I would also hit some restaurants around GW for a discount coupon for a table for 4 before- or after-game along with a set of tixs for a game. Folks will find a way to make it out.
