A Snapshot of Monumental Sports and EntertainmentPosted on January 17, 2011
Here is an article from today's Washington Post on our holding company called Monumental Sports and Entertainment. Most fans don't care nor should they care about our business operations and I understand that fact. Fans only care about wins and losses and the game day experience. There are a few tidbits within that aren't correct. Randy Boe is our general counsel and heads administration NOT operations as an example. But overall this article does show that we have a very large and integrated sports and marketing platform in a very big market that serves DC, VA and Maryland plus has fans all around the country and the world. As noted, we now have more than 1. 5 million names of people in our database and we will have more than 2.5 million turnstile clicks this year at Verizon Center. This is a big and important part of our local community. This is a big responsibility and we take it seriously. It is also quite a large investment and I am proud to have so many great partners to help us lighten the load and the risk inherent in leading these public trusts. We do our best. We have to improve on all counts but we are working hard to earn your trust and to keep you satisfied and happy. We will continue to hear your voices. We want to build a world class operation. We want you to be happy. We want to build value and an enterprise that our community is proud of and recommends to friends and family members. Thank you.
