As the future of a Washington baseball team hangs in the balance, the mayor said Thursday it's still possible to meet the Dec. 31 deadline for a deal.
Mayor Anthony A. Williams said his administration is working to pull together private financing to win the vote of District of Columbia Council chairwoman Linda W. Cropp. An amendment she introduced requiring at least half the stadium funding come from private sources was declared "wholly unacceptable" by Major League Baseball officials.
The two things that really had me worried yesterday were 1) that Tony Tavares was stopping negotiations for TV and radio deals and 2) Anthony Williams was all like "Shit! I mean, fuck, dude! The bitch set me up!" Seriously, the man was not calm. The fact that Williams is now talking more like Badass Jack Evans was cheers me a bit. Perhaps we're going to wind up shutting down all those schools and orphanages after all. One can only hope.
