Let me apologize, but at moment, I am unable to keep up with the rate of information that needs to be covered on this site. I will be forced to take a temporary hiatus.
I'm currently changing jobs and don't have the time necessary (currently, on the order of 2+ hours a day after a game) to do the necessary site maintenance and updates. It's just not worth my while.
I ask you to understand. This site will still remain. Maybe I'll figure out how to do this (either alone or with your help). The Wizards Talk mailing list will remain, and I'll still participate on it (the time commitment is minimal).
All of these features are permanent. I just can't keep up with the site maintenance load at moment. I do it for the fun of it, but my time no longer allows it. I hope you, the reader, understands.
If you need daily stories, don't forget to stop by the Washington Post. That's where I usually start, but I always add my own take on things. Thanks for your patience.

I don't have the time to give you the full scoop on Tuesday's and Wednesday's games. Sorry.
