Box Seats: November 14, 2010 - November 20, 2010

Canadian Bacon Democracy

The NBA released their annual All-Star ballot, and conspicuously missing from it was one Andray Blatche. Just to clarify, I’m not saying Blatche should be voted into the All-Star Game, just that he should be considered -- 16 ppg and...

Political Football: 'Don't learn from Tennessee'

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, from Tennessee's seventh district, says that Washington can learn a lot from Tennessee, but hopes those lessons don't carry over to the gridiron. I have often said that Washington should pay heed to the hard-learned lessons from...

Being a fan - the long view

I arrived in Washington, D.C., in 1989, as a freshman at The George Washington University and a man without a football team. My dad was a baseball guy, and as a young kid, I just followed whatever team was popular...

Maryland-Florida State - protecting our house

This Saturday’s matchup against Florida State is one of the most important games in the Ralph Friedgen era for the University of Maryland. If Maryland wins, they move on to a winner-take-all matchup with North Carolina State for a trip...

Take the long way home

What a week! Leave it to an embarrassing loss on national television to jar everything loose and get all the emotions spinning like exorcized heads. I hate to say it, but a fan getting angry at Dan Snyder is the...

Debaculous

The Wizards didn’t just get beat by the Celtics. They didn’t just get blown out. They weren’t just dominated. The game was an epic defensive fail, likely the worst defensive performance in team history. Last night, Boston shot 65.8% from...

Mike Green to host charity concert at 9:30 Club

On December 13, Mike Green is hosting a charity concert at the 9:30 Club. Do I like the idea? No, I love it. Sure, the concert features G. Love and Special Sauce, and I’m largely a country-and-show tunes girl (so...

John Erskine and other random thoughts

I’ve been meaning to write about John Erskine’s improved play for two weeks now and lo-and-behold he puts together the game of his life and is now getting love from all over the blogosphere. My original intent was to write...

I don’t write much about football, but after listening to Chad Dukes’ tirade on his radio show I felt compelled to write something, because his rant summarizes everything I loathe about modern sports radio. The Redskins don’t owe you or...

I made a fantastic decision this past weekend. I decided that I had too much work to make the trip from Connecticut to Washington to see the Eagles game. I gave my season tickets to friends. When I turned on...

Things I would rather see than last night’s Monday Night Massacre. Cheney 2012. Rocky 7. Rambo 5. Caps-Pens Game 7 in 2008. The insides of an Afghan cave. A picnic with the Donner party. Babies crying. Any emergency room on...

The Body Bag Game part II: The Vickening
