United Social Sports brings recreational athletes together to socialize and showcase their hand-eye coordination. Free agents or team-sized groups register for the organization’s casual coed leagues dedicated to traditional sports such as softball and volleyball as well as carnival games such as cornhole and skee-ball. Each league hosts 6–8 weekly matches, which culminate in a final tournament and an end-of-season party—much like youth-sports leagues, but with postgame drink specials.
This Groupon saws the price of a magic show ticket in slightly more than half—magically, without breaking the skin, harming the vital organs, or causing paper-blood. See Glenn Gary's Parlor Magic, a spectacular evening of "cabaret magic," an intimate, close-up type of abracadabra performed for small crowds with audience participation (shows are limited to 40 guests). Magic is used to delight the young and young at heart with a humorously narrated card trick. Magick is used to keep that blowhard Erasmus Stodgewell from acquiring the Orb of Osiris.
In 2005, the Montreal Expos became the Canadian Expats, pledging a new allegiance and taking on a new identity as the first big-league club to inhabit America's capital since the Senators moved to Texas in 1971. In 2008, the team christened its new stadium, Nationals Park, which today welcomes up to 41,418 fans, its 4,500-square-foot HD scoreboard almost distracting from the panoramic views of the Potomac riverfront, the Capitol dome, and the Washington Monument. Accredited as a Leadership in Energy and Environment Design stadium, Nationals Park also sits 24 feet below street level, making its main concourse even with city sidewalks and saving many fans the danger of riding frozen, thin-aired escalators just to reach their seats.
