There's been a lot of talk recently about what us fans can do to actually get the Washington Wizards to win a damn road game. They are now 0-20 on the road this season, and are rapidly approaching the record for most road losses to begin the season. The 1992/93 Dallas Mavericks hold that record, with 29 road losses in a row.â†µ
We posed this question for this week's edition of SB Nation Radio, set to come out later today, and Bullets Forever took a crack at it too. But the truth is that we're probably overthinking this. Why not do something simple and just ask the Wizards to get it done?â†µ
â†µâ†µHow ever it happens, through energy, coaching, good playing, or magic, we the undersigned formally request that the Wizards win at least one game on the road. We recognize that signing a petition to formally request that a team win may seem silly at first, and...well, it is a little silly, but hopefully it will show the team that we are still here. We would love more than one win, but you have to start small, which in this case only means being slightly better than the Kings, Cavs, or, division foes, the Bobcats. The Bobcats! Come on. With over 20 road games left, the opportunity to win is there.â†µ
It's not as elaborate as sacrificing a chicken, burning a photo or praying to the basketball gods, but direct is good too.
