Mayor says deal is on last breath
I came here to shatter dreams and chew bubble gum....and I'm all out of bubble gum. Mayor Williams said and implied today that there is virtually no chance of Washington getting a major league team--and chided that he was one of the "optimistic" ones. Well, thinking that the Mayor would be as optimistic as he could be, it was a real sobering realization that this truly does seem to be over.
Like all other things, a lot of what goes on is political manuevering, so I also can't say I would be surprised if next week something happened to make everyone say "we're back on track!" but when the Mayor pushing for this deal announces its death, it seems pretty darn dead to me.
