Wednesday was the final official day of Washington Wizards training camp and practice was held at the Verizon Center rather than the normal training camp digs at George Mason. Right away, the veteran beat writers who cover the team noticed that there was something a little ... off about the accommodations in the media room.
Back in #wizards media room for 1st time since training camp began & we've been greeted by mosquitoes. Reporters have slayed 7 so far.— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) October 10, 2012
Now, one wouldn't think of October 10 as prime mosquito season, even in notoriously humid Washington. But the infestation goes beyond the media room.
Reporters swatted away during interview with Emeka Okafor. EO: "Mosquito, right? They are everywhere. Training room, everywhere." #wizards— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) October 10, 2012
Fantastic. Not like preseason has been rocky for the Wizards or anything, what with their franchise point guard missing the first part of the season and all. Let's just hope no open wounds become infected before Thursday's home preseason game against the Knicks.
