Box Seats: October 3, 2010 - October 9, 2010

Player profile: #26 Clinton Portis

Sitting in the stands, waiting for Green Bay

By Stephen L. Carter A friend who often accompanies me to Redskins home games likes to tease me. He says that somewhere along about the middle of the second quarter, whether the Skins are winning or losing, I begin to...

Giving in to temptation: The mysterious case of Gilbert Arenas and the missing smile

By Lee Friedman I tried to talk myself out of this. I promised I would exhibit a small shred of self-control. In my defense, I lasted nearly three weeks, so please give me some credit. It’s time to address Gilbert...

A look ahead at the US National Team

By Jeff Maurer Let's talk US National Team (because I don't think I can handle the intensity of the "do we start Jed Zayner or do we play with ten?" debate surrounding DC United this week). The USMNT play their...

Terrapin football recruiting so far

By Rick Nelligan Oh what should be… Recruiting has been the Achilles Heel of the Terrapin football program ever since I can remember. Routinely other schools have come into Maryland territory and stolen talented D.C.-Maryland-Virginia student-athletes, not the least of...

I don't know if the Redskins will beat the Packers and neither do you

By Jason Woodmansee The main thing we’ve learned from the NFL season so far is that there are no great teams and no terrible teams. In fact, most teams are pretty mediocre. And the Redskins may be the most fabulously...

Playoff teams? Not a fan

By Ryan Korby I’ve always found jumping onto the bandwagon of a playoff team when my favorite team isn’t in it a useless endeavor. The arguments for a Nationals fan backing another team for a month are all a little...

Political Football: Redskins untouched by recovery

Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, whose home state Green Bay Packers play the Redskins this weekend, wonders when the recovery will reach FedEx Field. Washington has experienced a lot of change recently. First, we elected Barack Obama as President, and now...

Caps players whose jerseys your kids should wear - Part 3

By Nicole Weissman This is the third and final part in my series on Caps players who make especially good role models for kids. In part one, I profiled famously good Samaritan Brooks Laich, and in part two, boy (and...

Old Time hockey is dead

Is D.C. a hockey town?

By Kareem El-Alaily There’s been a lot of talk lately that D.C. is blossoming into a “hockey town”. The game is growing by leaps and bounds locally, the Caps have experienced unprecedented success at the gate, and the media is...

DC United vs. Colorado recap and player guesses

By Jeff Maurer I spent the past weekend at a Days Inn in New Jersey (sorry if that sounds braggy) where the wireless connection was too slow to stream the game. So I know nothing about United's 1-0 win over...

Donovan McNabb is a uniter

By Jason Woodmansee Jerry Seinfeld has an old bit where he says that loyalty to any one sports team is hard to justify -- the players move around, the team can move - we’re basically rooting for clothes. And if...

Outplayed by the statistical cousin of Uwe Blab?

By Kevin Broom Bad news disguised as a coach’s praise has emerged from the Wizards training camp. “Hilton Armstrong’s had a really solid camp,” Flip Saunders told BulletsForever. “He’s actually played better than Javale McGee has through camp right now.”...

#5 victorious yet not so glorious
