Washington Wizards small forward Martell Webster went to his car after flying halfway across the country with the team Saturday morning to find out he had left his keys in Kansas City, Mo. Webster had an app on his phone that allowed him to unlock the car, but he was unable to drive it. “Good thing I have a wife that loves me. She came and got me,” Webster said via The Washington Post. “I slept in my car for two hours, I’m not going to lie. I called my wife I was like, ‘You know what it is 3:30. I’ll let you sleep a couple more hours but you need to come get me.’ And she got me we’re good. “As long as I had shelter I was good,” Webster said. “By the time I had figured out my keys were in Kansas City everybody was gone. I didn’t want to call anybody, I didn’t mind. I’m from the Northwest, we do weird stuff like sleep in our cars – not a problem. If you haven’t slept in your car then you’re weird." In preparation for Hurricane Sandy, Webster and the Wizards have adjusted their schedule. The team will leave Monday morning to Cleveland for their season-opener against the Cavaliers Tuesday instead of practicing at the Verizon Center and leaving in the afternoon. “It’s not ideal but, you know what, safety first No. 1,” Coach Randy Wittman said. “Listening to people talk, they’re talking about the storm of the last 20 to 30 years that’s come across here. Obviously the league also has input on that, making us get out early to secure that we get [to Cleveland].”

I love opening day of any sport.
I’ve discussed this point ad nauseam, but there’s nothing like that feeling of the unknown. Staring at a blank canvas, and yeah, you’re limited to the colors in your palette, but the possibilities are endless. The season could be anything.
Basketball, of course, is a bit of a different animal though. In baseball, you have a 162 game marathon...
