It’s official…football season in the District just got a lot more interesting! Check out Time’s Q&A with the newest member of the Redskins, RG3. 

The Caps made it to the second round of the playoffs with a nail-biting win over the Bruins in Game 7 on Wednesday. Too bad the Twitterverse exploded with a wave of racist tweets about Joel Ward after he scored the winning goal.

Police haven’t conclusively linked three attacks in Northwest DC, according to The Washington Post, but residents should remain on alert when walking alone.

As if WMATA didn’t have enough issues, folks who rode the Route 52 or 54 buses along 14th Street NW last week should be aware that a bus driver on that route was diagnosed with viral meningitis, according to CBS News.

A Washington institution got a new name this week. The Legg Mason Tennis Classic will now be known as the Citi Open after getting a new title sponsor, according to ESPN.
