D.C. mayor feels dissed by ESPN's '50 states' tour
WASHINGTON - Washington D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams wants a little respect - from ESPN.

Williams feels the nation's capital is getting dissed by the cable sports network. ESPN is doing a series called "50 States-50 Days" about sporting events around the country. D.C. isn't on the list.

Williams says it makes no sense for ESPN to travel all around the country and not come to what he says is "the heart and soul" of the nation. Williams is calling on ESPN to make a stop in his neck of the woods on the tour that runs through September.
