A city-sponsored study estimated that 150 to 200 D.C. businesses might seek licenses to take sports bets, but the bill that was approved last month by the city council grants special privileges to the four stadiums and arenas. If those operators choose to get in the gambling business, no other entity can take sports bets legally within a two-block radius. That means the most prominent brick-and-mortar sports wagering locations in the city could be Capital One Arena in Chinatown, Nationals Park, the newly-constructed Audi Field and the St. Elizabeths East Entertainment and Sports Arena in Congress Heights.

More than 30 years after his last visit to the White House, Bob Cousy will return on Thursday so President Trump can present him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The 91-year-old Holy Cross and Celtics basketball legend will be the sole recipient during a ceremony scheduled to begin at the Oval Office at 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Trump called Cousy in December to inform him that he planned to present him the honor and Cousy received the official notification from the White House last month. “I’ve thought so much about it,” he said. “For me, it closes my life circle. It’s a completion for me. I will be a happy camper. I’m already the luckiest SOB on the face of the planet and this simply certifies that.”
