Jody’s Jam of The Week

Wizards vs. Magic, Saturday, November 3 at the Verizon Center

Hark! Is that the bodacious sound of a basketball bouncing on hardwood that I hear? Sure sounds like it … and it seems to be coming from Verizon Center. Yessiree, boys and girls, it’s hoops season again and what better way to usher it in than to head down to the Big Ole Phone Booth and see Gilbert, Caron and Co. take on the upstart Orlando Magic led by uber-stud Dwight Howard? And this year, after a few choice renovations to the Wizards’ home court, the action will be bigger than ever on the High-Def display that hangs over the floor. Who needs a big man when Gilbert looks as large as the Jolly Green Giant? So head on down to D.C. to watch this year’s Wizards team start their season.
