D.C. United preseason lessons

Going into the preseason, I had no idea how United would line up on opening day. Would Perry Kitchen be a center back or a midfielder? Was there a chance we'd see a 3-5-2? What combination of our "meh"-caliber strikers...

Minute by minute -- a look at JaVale McGee

In cyberspace the past couple days, a season-long conversation about JaVale McGee has flared up. On one side are those who argue that McGee makes the Wizards better (looking at +/- data) and that when he plays more, the team has a...

A night to celebrate

This season hasn't been like last season. Instead of 20-game victory lap a the end of the season before claiming the President's Trophy, the Caps are still trying to find their stride, integrating new players with players returning from injuries...

On Chara/Pacioretty

Being a hockey fan, or a fan of any other sport, is like being party to a contract. We give our time, our money and our energy to support people with enormous athletic talent, all in the name of “representing”...

NL East position rankings: left field

It’s a shocking edition of the NL East position rankings today. Are you ready for this? I think the Nationals have a shot to have the best left field play in 2011; however, it would take some very specific personnel...

Let the kids run

The Wizards had a bad February. A very bad February. Only the L.A. Clippers 2-12 record was better then their 2-10 one. Even the Cleveland Cavaliers managed to pull out a 3-8 record (a case of Stadium Mustard was delivered...

CONCACAF doesn't have time to rig Gold Cup draw

Look, it's not easy being CONCACAF President Jack Warner. There's a lot to keep track of: what was promised to whom and in exchange for what and when. There's a pile of money in the corner of your office...is that...

Ticket to ride

I read Steinberg's Sports Bog post today about the Caps raising ticket prices, and I have to admit that it bums me out. I can understand why they would raise prices, mostly because the team is really, really good (which...

Ignoring the burning wreckage, part 4: the strikers

If you're going to melt down, do it in an entertaining way. Charlie Sheen gets it; nobody's mourning the loss of Two and a Half Men, probably because the Charlie Sheen Channels Kenny Powers Show is at least ten times more...
