So after talks with Barclays and MSG in New York City, and rampant speculation that the ACC tournament was headed to the Big Apple in 2016, today, the ACC announced the host city and arena for the 2016 ACC Tournament....wait for it.....you know it's coming.....just one more middle finger......on our way out the door........that's right..........Verizon Center in DC. Hmmm I wonder if that's a coincidence? It is rather fascinating the we're getting more attention from the ACC now then we ever did as an actual member of the conference. Anyways, I'm looking forward to headed to Chicago for the B1G tourney as some point. It certainly beats Greensboro anyways, and I can drive there.
Just for the record the ACC tournament has been played in the DC just five times since it's inception in 1954. The last two times were 2005 and 1987
