For the second time this year, a long-winless Teddy finally broke of out his horrific and historic slump.
This time, Ted Leonsis' Washington Wizards finally worked their way into the win column in a closer-than-it-should-have-been 84-82 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers Wednesday. Washington blew a late 15-point lead in the fourth quarter before holding on and avoiding history as the team with the worst start in NBA history.
The Wizards are 1-12, which doesn't have the same ring to it as 0-13. There's something to be said about being not just bad, but historically bad. Never fear, though. They still have plenty of opportunities to make history and continue to be the subject of your ridicule. Hey, we're going to need something to do once the Redskins finish the season.
