Unwrapping The Rink

from Corey Masisak of the Washington Times:
Patrick Ewing stands at one corner of the Verizon Center floor and waits for his son, one of the newest members of the Georgetown Hoyas basketball team. A few people move past Mr. Ewing toward the center of the arena, giving the former Hoyas and New York Knicks great a quick glance of recognition as they pass. Most of the fans already have filed out of the building after the Hoyas' victory over Hartford on this Saturday afternoon. A group of workers, meanwhile, gathers on the floor of the arena, their job just about to begin. The clock shows a few minutes after 2, and the Washington Capitals are scheduled to play a hockey game against the New York Rangers in little less than five hours on the very spot that is a basketball floor now.
