Unsung heroes: Matt Bradley

“Unsung heroes” is a misnomer. Everybody loves Matt Bradley. What I really mean is “Non-Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin heroes,” and I think we can all agree that Bradley is none of those people. Can you see I’m trying to protect myself from making...

Are the kids alright?

"Staring at the water boiling won't make it go faster, my goal is to get to the point where every game that we go into, we think we can win. And we have a long way to go. But once...

Dan Snyder is a jackwagon (please don't sue me)

I have tried to not jump on the “Dan Snyder is Evil” bandwagon. I told myself the guy just wants to win, and is just doing what any fan would do if they owned a team. I hung in there...

The rationale of fan irrationality

Used to be, I wondered why fans reacted so powerfully to Wizards wins and losses. After a loss, fans kvetch and rage — demanding coaching and front office changes, player trades, and lineup and strategy adjustments. After a win, those...

Charlie Davies is a gamble worth taking

First: here's the background reading about Charlie Davies, for the more casual United fans. A friend recently asked me what I thought was going to happen in Egypt. I said: "I think Mubarak will step down, and in a few months...

This is your team

I have to admit that at times when I watch the Caps struggle offensively, my mind drifts off to Feb. 28, 2011. That’s the NHL trade deadline. Yes, the Caps have holes. Significant ones. But those have been dissected ad...

What ails the Caps?

Much is riding on the final 31 games of the season. While the Caps are a mere four points out of first place in the Southeast, they’re also only seven points up on ninth place Carolina. Being in the jumbled...
