Yesterday, we highlighted an article by Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner questioning the merit of the Wizards' Midnight Madness event on October 28 (well, October 27).

The implication was that not that many people would show up.

How many people do you expect will show up at the Wizards' "Midnight Madness" event?
