Hooper after his dead-bang shot from 20+ feet out on the right wing

Hooper, after a season and a half of banging shots off uprights and crossbars and goalkeepers’ faces, finally scored on Saturday for the Wizards, and he did so unambiguously. Left unguarded on the right wing, he received a pass, pivoted to the ball just as the keeper pivoted toward him and sent it skimming just over the tops of the grass blades, past the keeper and into the far corner of the net like it had eyes. The Wizards still lost (despite playing rather well), but we celebrated with milkshakes anyway. (Thanks to Lori for the photo.)
