NBA night w/Washington Wizards & Marcin Gortat (NBA's only Polish player)

Zapraszamy wszystkich na mecz Washington Wizards Vs Atlanta Hawkes Listopada 30ego o 7pm w Verizon Center - Sobota - zeby kibicowac za Marcina Gortata (rodak z Lodzi) - jedyny Polski NBA superstar!

-DC AREA welcomes its 1st Polish NBA basketball player, Marcin Gortat, dubbed as "THE POLISH HAMMER" as he made his debut w/ the Washington Wizards at the beg of the[masked] season. With over 6yrs of experience playing in the NBA with powerful teams like the Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns, Gortat was added to the Wizards lineup in order to make the team a real PLAYOFF CONTENDER!

-He is in the starting lineup for the Wizs and is averaging 14 points/game! His overall career history, his average is 9.8 points/game. For more info about his careeer stats, please browse to:

We were thinking of gathering outside the Verizon Center around 6pm with our Polish pride clothing apparel, Marcin Gortat jerseys, or perhaps with inflatable hammers then proceeding to our designated seats (hopefully the custodians/ushers will be willing to designate an area to us Polish fans to cheer for Gortat) that way our collective cheering voices will make a roaring impact and make it a special night for GORTAT! Let's give Gortat a true Polish welcome to the DMV capital area region! After the game, we can go for drinks at the local bars or RUSSIA HOUSE in Dupont Circle if people are in the mood!


We will be buying tickets most likely in the 424 - 427 section and we encourage all interested to do the same! However, if you want front-court or better tickets, please proceed accordingly. Once again, we are hoping that once usheres see us as a big Polish group, they will designate a decent section of the stadium for all of us to sit together.
