Pierre Garcon told 106.7 The Fan’s Holden and Danny that his intentions weren’t to diss RGIII by saying he wasn’t as fast as he was in 2012, and put to bed any rumors that the two would settle questions of who’s faster in a friendly race.
Although everyone expected the Nats to cancel Monday’s game in the wake of the tragedy at Navy Yard, many took notice that it took the team until 3:14 p.m. to do so. Many, including 106.7 The Fan’s Holden Kushner, who says the decision should have come much sooner.
