At his introductory press conference, Ted Leonsis made it clear that getting, and more importantly keeping, season ticket holders was among his top priorities. On Monday, he started to make good on that promise, hosting an event for about 300 former season ticket holders. The event was closed to the media, but Dan Steinberg managed to get his hands on a few interesting quotes from the big boss man.â†µ
The best was in reference to this summer's big free agent prize, Lebron James.â†µ
The best moment of the night came near the end of the discussion when he mock-complained that everyone he has talked to over the last few days is telling him that he has to sign Lebron James. The crowd let out a pretty serious chorus of boos. After letting folks boom, Leonsis said "Good, I'm glad we're on the same page."â†µ
Die-hard Wizards fans who are still getting over the crab dribble will love to see that.
