Introducing Oshiomogho Atogwe

The sneaky Skins were able to shuffle under the radar, during all the looming lockout conversations and mediations, to scoop up one of the best turnover cookers in the entire league over the last couple years. Bruce Allen had a...

NL East position rankings: centerfield

Centerfield in the National League East is one of the least star-studded positions in the division. Centerfield isn’t typically a premium hitting position, but on the whole the division is below average among its peers. It will still be...

Belated judgment on new Capitals

Earlier this week, both Ryan and Kareem gave the Caps’ trade deadline acquisitions their seal of approval. With all three, Dennis Wideman, Marco Sturm and Jason Arnott, set to be in the lineup against the New York Islanders Tuesday night,...

Buzz Bissinger is a big fat idiot

Well, not really. But when someone writes with the thoughtfulness and sophistication of Rush Limbaugh, it seems fair to lump them together. Bissinger wrote the seminal book on high school football, “Friday Night Lights” in 1990 and was considered a...

Trevor Gillies has no place in the NHL

It came out yesterday that former NHL tough guy Bob Probert suffered from CTE, the degenerative brain condition that has been so prevalent in former NFL players and other assorted athletes. Concussions are a major issue in sports right now,...

McPheerless

Well, that deadline day sure turned out to be a dud. Seriously, the two most entertaining things that happened were when the inimitable Down Goes Brown got his followers to all wish Joffrey Lupul well on Long Island at the...

First impressions from spring training

Spring Training games can be fascinating to watch or a good replacement for Lunesta, depending on what you focus on. Being one of the probably 10 fans nationwide who recorded the Nationals-Mets game on my DVR, here’s my impression on...

Thoughts on deadline day trades

Yesterday’s trades have brought in two new players – Dennis Wideman and Jason Arnott – to the Caps. This comes in addition to GM George McPhee’s waiver wire pilfering of Marco Sturm from the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. All...

Fare thee well, Clinton Portis

Love him or hate him, Clinton Portis’ departure from the Washington Redskins is the end of an era. Brought in with an enormous bang of hype and expectation, this quiet and tame departure seems sadly too fitting. In the end,...

So long and farewell, Coach Janky Spanky

To the surprise of no one, the Redskins released Clinton Portis today. The logical, rational part of me can say that it was the right thing to do. Portis hasn’t played much the last two seasons, and he’s not worth...

Loving the silly mock drafts

I have wasted large chunks of the last couple of days hunting through mock NFL drafts around the Internet. Now, mock drafts are a pretty silly idea, and grading them – who guessed best? – is even sillier. But being...
