It's a matter of pride!

By aquaman

DC and Pittsburgh are two cities that take sports very seriously from the high school level to the professional level. The goal of this infographic was to debate which city is a better city for sports lovers. It was difficult to figure out what I wanted to make this about, I'm not really an idea man but i can do the design stuff when I've got the tools.

Will the budget continue to decrease? Student athletics are very important for the Mary Washington community and the budget must keep increasing or at least stop decreasing so that student athletes can continue to compete at a competitive level.
