Political Football: For Kleinsasser and chocolate ice cream

Expansion draft: United lose Graye and Wallace, gain McCarty

Where's Wallace at, String? In Portland, because this went down... Portland took Dax McCarty with the first pick in the expansion draft, then traded him to DCU for Rodney Wallace and a fourth-round pick. I like this move, but don't...

The interim coach vs. the replacements

Relax, it could be worse - you could be a Vikings fan

Redskins fans may think they’ve been through a lot this year. Ugly losses, getting Vicked on national television, Rex Grossman - but it’s nothing compared to what Vikings fans have had to deal with. My in-laws live in South Dakota...

When to panic: A guide for Caps fans

Growing up in D.C., I’m well-versed in the roller coaster experience of being a sports fan. Have you heard? This is the year for the Skins! We signed [moody player who performed exquisitely for a different team] to a [large...

MLS proposes changes...oh, and Colorado are the champs

One quick thought about the game before I get to stuff that United fans might actually care about (sorry, Colorado and Dallas - you're deserving finalists, and Happy Meals all around for the Rapids and whatever, but I simply could...

Redskins-Titans: The good, the bad and the ugly

The Good Getting back to the old routine. The Redskins went back to their typical game of the season -- a low-scoring game with a last-second win. Last week must have been an anomaly (but dang, what an anomaly). Brandon...

Three days of heartbreak

Thursday through Saturday, it was pretty tough to be a fan of the Terrapins two major teams. It was a three day span that you knew could give Terps fans one more thing to be thankful for around the Thanksgiving...
