It’s already been a tough season for the Washington Wizards, as their two best players John Wall and Nene are out indefinitely. That doesn’t leave many bright young faces to be the “face of the franchise” right now. The closest thing to it is 2nd overall pick Bradley Beal out of Florida. With struggling personnel comes struggles to sell tickets, and the fans need a little incentive to show up to the arena. Knowing this, the Wizards decided to run a promotion: Buy a $25 dollar ticket to the game, and get a $2 Budweiser beer. Figuring he may be the only recognizable face on the team right now, the Wizards decided to feature Beal on the advertisement. One problem: the rookie is only nineteen years-old. Here’s a picture of the advertisement in question: Naturally, this turned some heads, and isn’t the best public relations move, so the ad was eventually taken down. In their defense, Beal wasn’t consuming anything in the ad, just simply present in an ad featuring an alcohol promotion. Furthermore, who the heck else are they going to put on there? Emeka Okafor?! That being said, I wouldn’t go see the Wizards without Wall if they were two cent beers, and I don’t think I’m alone. The post Washington Wizards place underaged Bradley Beal in Beer Ad appeared first on Pass The Pill.

A ticket company made a mistake with one of the ads it was running to promote a ticket package they were trying to sell to Wizards fans.
Those of you in the D.C. area who enjoy having a few beers before watching your favorite team play were treated to a great special from the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. As you can see from the advertisement above, the Wizards were running a promotion where $25 got you a ticket and access to $2 Budweisers for several hours before Washington’s game against the Boston Celtics...
Recently, the Washington Wizards put together a ticket promotion for opening night called "Bar Tour" where if someone bought a certain $25 dollar ticket, they could get $2 Budweisers during the game.The advertisement was created by TiqIQ and features 1st-round draft pick Bradley Beal on the ad which is actually a gaffe.Why you ask? Beal is 19-years-old and is not legally...
Note: I’m aware John Wall won’t be playing tonight, but this is about the state of the Wizards, and Wall is in integral part of that conversation. So. Enjoy.One of my good friends has been dating a girl for nearly a year. She is his first girlfriend in a very, very long time, and as is wont to happen in such situations, he got very invested in the relationship very quickly. This...
A night after what their coach called a ''flat game,'' Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics held the Washington Wizards to 1-for-14 shooting at the start, then were barely better at the end.
Strong defensive stands early - Washington's only scoring in the first 8 minutes came on Garnett's goaltending call - and late, plus Paul Pierce's 27 points, including...
Well that was better, I guess. The Celtics survived a nail-biter against the Washington Wizards (WITHOUT John Wall and Nene) after they blew a sizable lead. But I’ll TRY to be positive and accept our first win of the season on the second night of a back-to-back, and chalk it up to the Celtics playing down to inferior competition. Let’s get to the recap:Sullinger got the...

WASHINGTON D.C. – The Boston Celtics are halfway to their first win of the season. The Celtics take a 49-42 lead over the Washington Wizards into the locker room.

Washington, D.C. — The Boston Celtics won’t go 0-82 this season. The Celtics (1-2) picked up their first win by beating the Washington Wizards (0-2) on the road, 89-86, Saturday night.

Rapper The Game was in DC over the weekend as a stop on his tour. Injured Wizards point guard John Wall played on Game’s summer league team at the Drew league last summer so, it’s only right they get together while he was in town. The Game attended Wizards vs. Celtics while he was [...]
Better ball movement was a big reason why the Boston Celtics won all four meetings with the Washington Wizards last season.
The Celtics, however, are more concerned about their defense during their winless start to 2012-13.
They will try to avoid a second straight 0-3 start Saturday night as they look to spoil the Wizards' home opener.
