We here at Slicing Up Eyeballs HQ are, admittedly, not fans of sport, but were nevertheless duly impressed to see the jumbotron operator at a Washington Wizards basketball game this past week throw the camera onto local fan Guy Picciotto, an icon of D.C.’s post-hardcore scene after his pivotal role in both Rites of Spring and Fugazi.
The image was captured by Washington Post music critic (and former Q and Not U guitarist) Chris Richards, who tweeted, “Koolest Wizards jumbotron screengrab of all time?” We’d agree.
Piciotto, of course, is no stranger to a basketball hoop, as you can see below.
