White, and why you should wear it

As you've probably heard by now, the Wizards are doing a white out for Games 3 and 4 at the Verizon Center.  In order to get you fully prepared for it, I've completed an unofficial FAQ for the proper etiquette of a white out:

Q: Do I really have to wear this T-Shirt?

A: Yeah, you do.  You see, getting everyone to wear the same color shirt is the new big thing in sports promotion, but there's always a few jerks that ruin it by not wearing the shirts.  DON'T BE THAT JERK.  If we can get every person in the VC to wear white (besides the Cavs) there's no way we can lose.

Q: What if there's a Cavs fan in attendance?

A: Spray him with shaving cream!  [Ed. note - Don't actually do that, please.  The last thing this series needs is a riot.]

Q: Is there's a specific reason they chose white?

A: Because white = awesome.  Not to mention that it sure beats using a color like yellow that's nowhere in the color scheme:


Q: But I'm wearing my authentic Caron Butler away jersey!

A: That's not a question.

Q: Um, what should I do if I'm wearing my authentic Caron Butler jersey?  Can I just wear the T-Shirt under the jersey?

A: No! Keep Caron closer to your heart by wearing it inside the T-Shirt, and let white shine on like a fluorescent light...or something like that.

Q: Should I wear white before the game too?

A: Yes!  If possible, try to coordinate as many things as possible to be white on the days of the next two games.  White shirt, white pants, white shoes, white toothbrush, and ride the white line on Metro to get to the game.

Q: Metro has a white line?

A: Nope.  It looks like you'll be taking the bus!

Q: If I wear white, will Eddie Jordan wear a white tux like Rick Pitino did?

A: One can only hope.
