Steinberg at Caps Media Day

You may have already read DC Sports Bog's take on media day at Verizon Center yesterday. But in case you didn't, wander on over to Dan Steinberg's blog, where he's got items on Donald Brashear and Alex Ovechkin.

(Hobby interruption I: As has often been noted, Brashear spent some time as an amateur boxer during the NHL lockout and amassed a record of 2-1. He's thinking that next summer, in addition to building houses, he might resume boxing , if he can find time to do the proper workouts during the season. He likes individual sports, because "you've got to take it upon yourself and do all the work.")

And ...

Alex Ovechkin has long hair. Hasn't been cut for about two months.
"It's the longest hair in my life," Ovechkin said. "Doesn't mean anything. Teammates say go with hair cut. They don't like it."
"Terrible," Donald Brashear said.

When you get a sec, go read the whole thing. Trust me, you won't be sorry.

It's worth it for that picture of Brash alone. I want that on a poster.

Do read the whole thing as we'll have to wait several months for another gem.

I thought he was going to cover training camp. Does he know camp is over?

"I thought he was going to cover training camp. Does he know camp is over?"

Steinberg's Wizards to Caps content ratio last spring must have been like 40:1. Very pathetic.

Check out the great 1-on-1 w/ Brian Burke.

That's the way to run things! Very straight forward, great evaluator of talent, and most importantly of all honesty & class! Maybe GMGM and Glen should have stayed longer in Vancouver to learn more from the man.
On another note, it will be great to see the Ducks on VS. tonight against the Wings. Not just for the game but to see Doug "Sluggo" Shearer behind the bench.

... Not just for the game but to see Doug "Sluggo" Shearer behind the bench...

Why does that matter?

Hey, Tarik! Nice spread today on the predictions. We could argue all day on the positionings of the teams, but it's nice to see something in the Post on hockey. To see two things made me look at the first page of the paper again to make sure I was still in DC.

When do the Washington Post sports writers (other than you) write their pieces on the Cap's Media Day? Where they even there? Why do I feel like George Washington writing to congress asking for supplies? Is anybody there? Does anybody care (from the musical 1776)?

It matters because it's another stupid, inconsequential thing for trolls to criticize the Caps about. Although when they go out to the fringes like this, you know they don't really have enough material to feel as though they're in a strong position.
