Caption Contest: Antawn Jamison

This blog is completely Wizards-centric, but there's not much else going on at the moment. Let me know if Clinton Portis picks out a costume and I'll be glad to write about it. Until then, let's caption a photo in honor of Wizards all-star forward Antawn Jamison, who just yesterday...

Arenas Thinks, We Wait

My apologies for not posting since Friday. I was in Atlantic City, and they do not condone blogging from the casinos. Some advice: don't put it all on red. . .or black. Put half on each color every time. It's a futile activity, but you'll never lose. Someone who doesn't...

Draft Reaction Redux Redundancy

I was going to write all about the commenter reaction to the Wizards' draft performance, but Dan Steinberg stole my thunder. Just to sum up once again, the response to the team taking "Big Man" JaVale McGee with the 18th pick went something like this: big daddy: ANOTHER MANUTE BOL..GEEZ,ARE...

Bad Call of the Week

Just in time for the Wizards' big game against the Cavaliers tonight, the NBA plunks the dunce cap on Darius Songaila and sends him to the time out corner. Songaila hit a certain Cleveland player in the face after the two got tangled up under the basket and was given...

Will Pollin's Pep Talk Help the Wizards?

Wizards owner Abe Pollin, 84 years old and suffering from a debilitating disease, offered his team some motivation yesterday in preparation for Game 5. Only the Wizards know for sure what Pollin said, but let's just assume it was something a bit more inspiring than this: YLordY: COME ON, YOU...

Blame It on the Media

DeShawn Stevenson made a "a menacing gesture" during the first quarter of the Wizards' 100-97 loss to the Cavaliers on Sunday, and now he has shell out $25,000. But it's not Stevenson's fault, fans say. The media made him do it....

Crowd Noise's first Caption Contest was wholly entertaining, so here we go again. Let's see who can come up with the best caption for this photo of Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan: (By Nick Wass -- Associated Press) My colleague, sports producer CJ Holley, suggests this caption: "Gilbert, get off the...

Maybe We All Need to 'Chill'

You've got to believe that in a professional sports league like the NBA, players don't take the trash talk too seriously. How can they? They're all paid to win, so they all believe they will win. Perhaps that doesn't apply to former NBA player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley,...

This Is All Wrong

Think back to, say, March 2007. The Wizards and Gilbert Arenas were red-hot. The Capitals were... not (Oh, I'm sorry; the correct term is "rebuilding"). The Orioles were a few months away from giving up an obscene number of runs to the Rangers. Reading the comments on the site today,...

A Fan Base Divided

Gilbert Arenas told reporters Sunday that he'd be willing to take a pay cut if it would help the Wizards retain Antawn Jamison, sparking somewhat of a debate among readers. Commenters either gushed over Arenas's generosity and sense of camaraderie, or they snarled at his latest declaration, calling it a...

Wilbon Loves the Wizards, and Everyone Loves Wilbon

It's springtime, and respect bordering on adoration is in the air. Mike Wilbon praised the Wizards on Tuesday for "hanging in there," and laid out his game plan for the remainder of the season: If doctors okay him playing, Gilbert Arenas comes off the bench. The crowd ate it up:...
