The Verizon Center Is Loathsome And Unclean

Ever eat a hot dog at a Wizards game? You may want to think twice next time....

Verizon Center health violations among worst in U.S.

http://www.wtop.com/?nid=295&sid=2012018


This line is a real eye-catcher:

"The report, conducted by ESPN, finds every food vendor inside the home of the Capitals, Wizards, Mystics and Georgetown University basketball to be in violation of health codes. The report found at least 10 vendors with mice droppings in food preparation areas."


Yuck. Thank god I only ever buy their over-priced beer.

I went to a concert at Verizon Center and ate the pulled pork covered nachos. I puked my guts out the next morning. Maybe they were pulled mouse covered nachos instead... :(

I had a co-worker who once told me that he never ate any kind of meat product where he couldn't distinguish what kind of meat it was. For instance, he would eat a chicken leg or a chicken breast, but he wouldn't eat a chicken nugget. Your story reminded me of this wise sage's advice.

I have faith that Ted Leonsis will clean this up. Abe was an absentee landlord. Ted gets things done, and is motivated as a new owner.

I just saw this thread. That's vile. One more reason not to eat a $6 hot dog or whatever it costs.

Ted Leonsis will fix this in a hurry.

He's needs to start by kicking Gil to the curb.

They need Arenas to have a good year, otherwise they won't get much when it comes time to trade him. Kicking him to the curb would ensure that.

Yes, I know. But if he has a good year, they will be inclined to keep him. And I'm not sure if that helps the team in the long run.

The NBA is the most lopsided professional sports league out there. There are like five or six teams that have any chance of making it to the championship. The rest - like the Wizards, Timberwolves, Hawks, Bobcats, etc, - are out in the fucking wilderness. It makes it hard to give a fuck about the NBA, really.

Because Gil's responsible for properly cleaning and sanitizing the vendor stands?

Yes. Ted should get something for his $100 million.

I am a Capitals season ticket holder. The word has been on the street for years. Never eat the popcorn unless you go to a vendor that actually pops the corn in front of you. The popcorn provided to most of the vendors and suites sits in bags on the floor that are havens for rats, mice, roaches etc. I never eat their food, but the beer is good and somewhat reasonably priced.
