Lady Gaga reschedules concert around Pacers-Wizards Game 6
Apparently you can read her poker face, but that's OK, the best solution for Wizards fans is to just dance and hope their team plays like monsters.
The Wizards were a "hopeful" playoff team to start the year. Once they accomplished that goal, everything else was gravy. Game 1 win vs. the Bulls? Gravy. First-round series win vs. the Bulls? Gravy. Taking Game 1 vs. the Pacers? Hey, this is getting interesting.
Except, it became interesting in a non-basketball-wise. See, apparently whoever does scheduling at the Verizon center didn't foresee the Wizards making it this far. Because they booked a concert on the 15th, which is when a potential Game 6 would be. No big deal, it's just a little-known artist named Lady Gaga.
The dates for the seven-game series have already been set, but if the series extends to six games, the Wizards would have a scheduling problem on May 15 because of a Lady Gaga concert that is already booked for that night. The Wizards released a statement on Saturday night that read, “We are aware of the potential conflict and are working with the promoter in the event Game 6 is necessary, more information will be released when it becomes available.”
Luckily, disaster was averted as the pop-fashion diva-mogul was gracious enough to accommodate the team.
I have a solution, though. Gaga has a concert pre-game, plays at halftime, and then plays after. Sure, the ticketing, seating, and arena configuration makes this literally impossible to pull off, but when have we as a society ever let a thing like reality get in the way of our dreams?
Of course... if the Wizards lose, we're going to have to go ahead and say it was the Curse of Gaga. There's really no other way.
