RIP Abe Pollin

Abe Pollin, 1923-2009

A great man of Washington died Tuesday, Abe Pollin, the only owner of the Washington Bullets, later Wizards and the arena formerly known as MCI Center, and former owner of the Washington Capitals. No formal obituary from Curly R on Abe, there is nothing I can add to this piece by 3rd Stone from the Sun, go read it.

Abe Pollin was 85
