This time last year, the cheerleader-looking Starting 11 were charged primarily with schmoozing VIPs, helping people find their seats, customer service and hospitality.
That was then…
“We wanted to enhance the program with the Starting 11 Girls,” says Wizards marketing man Rob Thomson. “So we have a whole new team and now there’s a dance component and they’re performing at half time and before the game. You know, like what you see in arena sports – it’s very new. This will be something people come to games that they’ll want to see.”
With luck, they’ll want to see even more, as in the Wizards new Starting 11 Girls calendar that can be purchased at games, Starting 11 Girls appearances or online at kcwizards.com.
So did Thomson wisk the Starting 11 off to a remote tropical paradise for the shoot? Uh, no.
“One was at Tony Gonzalez condo on the Plaza and another was at Spa Tuscano at Briarcliff,” Thomson says. “And we did some in the West Bottoms.”
How about Oceans of Fun?
