Has Council President Anna Verna got game? We believe this invitation to Friday night's Council vs. Mayor staff basketball game says it all. Friday at Ben Franklin H.S., 5:30 p.m. tip-off. Bernard Hopkins rumored to be a guest coach and referee.

Note: Earlier post mistakenly had Evander Holyfield as rumored referee. Our apologies, Mr. Hopkins.
