I’ve got to tell you, I was all set to write a post today on how stringing together a win against the division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, the rival Pittsburgh Penguins, and the talented but less familiar San Jose Sharks was...

One true building block

Lemme see — I’ve written that the Wizards should trade Andray Blatche and avoid major investment in Nick Young. Let’s turn the focus to a positive — the development of the team’s one true franchise bedrock: John Wall. Despite injury struggles, a balky...

Terps should hire Randy Shannon

As shocked as I was when I read that Terps Defensive Coordinator Don Brown had taken the same job with Connecticut, I was even more shocked when I read the Terps were interviewing Randy Shannon to take over his spot....
