Thanks to Qatar Authentic Vinny Curry Jersey , hockey fans in the U.S. capital get an extra hour of subway service on the night of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning.

It costs $100,000 to keep the Metrorail system open for an additional 60 minutes past midnight. Metro eliminated late-night operating hours because of budget constraints.

Hours before the scheduled start of Thursday’s game, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted that Qatar and the Downtown D.C. Business Improvement District are ”doing it again to deliver late night Metro service to Caps fans.”

The Qatar Embassy also touted the arrangement, saying via Twitter: ”We believe in bringing communities closer together through sports.”

Qatar has mounted an aggressive and well-funded campaign to rehabilitate its image in the U.S. since President Donald Trump chided the country last year for funding terrorism. Qatar’s ruling emir visited the White House last month.

Jack Evans, the chairman of Metro’s board of directors and a D.C. Council member, said the Capitals declined to pay to keep the subway system open in the event of an overtime game.




The Seahawks signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall this offseason, putting him in prime position to join the 1 Authentic Courtland Sutton Jersey ,000-catch club.

If he makes the roster.

That, however, is no lock, according to ESPN, which points out that Marshall’s meager guarantee of $90,000 means it would be easy for Seattle to cut him before the start of the regular season.

The 34-year-old Marshall is coming off two surgeries, one on his ankle and one on his toe Adidas Mika Zibanejad Jersey , and he played in just five games last year. In those five games he managed just 18 catches for 154 yards, a career-low average of 8.6 yards per catch. Marshall hasn’t been able to do much this offseason because of a hamstring injury.

Marshall himself admitted that “I’m not where I want to be, not even close, but my goal is to be in midseason form come camp.”

If Marshall isn’t where the Seahawks want him to be in camp, don’t be surprised if he’s not on the team when the regular season starts.
