Hello Wizards fans! I’m Marina and I had the time of my life last season as a Wizards Girl. It was a pleasure cheering for the Wizards with you on the sidelines.  I can’t wait for this season to start and to see John Wall play his first of many games for the Wizards.  I look forward to watching the 2010-11 Wizards team succeed on the court!

Wg love – Marina
