D.C. Sports Bog: November 26, 2006 - December 2, 2006

A Few Final Details

"He's dead," Sway said, when he picked up the phone. (First of all, who the heck is Interested Observer? That person has better sources than I do.) Anyhow, here's a sampling of what I know. Maybe the key figures will log on later and fill us in further. Sway and...

Nicky in Major Trouble

In the exchange with Iceberg, described below, Nicky lost his weapon when he sprinted off after the mysterious car appeared. No water. In trouble. Edit: Roche has somehow ruled that Nicky gets his gun back. A Back Liner is going to pick it up....

Water is Spilled!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Oh my gosh," said the Back Line member who just called me. Seriously. So Nicky saw Iceberg about a half-block away in Georgetown, ran for him, gets ready to take him down, but Iceberg somehow quick draws his water gun out of a bag and they soak each other at...

More Updates

1) Nicky has or will soon publicly announce that he's on M Street in Georgetown. Hopefully the entire universe will now head there and water apocalypse will ensue. 2) A member of Nicky's crew just called me and said Nick has every intention to win the game by soaking his...

Sorry for the absence. I haven't been listening to the radio, so I'm not sure what's the latest. Here's what I know. 1) A security guard at RFK Stadium spotted at least one water stalker hanging around the DCU equipment sale this morning. The security guard wanted to know if...

Nats Pawn Off Their Junk on Fans

No offseason for Nats bloggers. Tadcranky did something I should have done; he stopped by the new Nats store at Connectictut and L, where the team is also opening some offices. Anyhow, this is what Tad found: When you walk in, the first thing that you see is a display...

What You Need to Know

Curious about Michael Vick? A columnist thinks fantasy football has something to do with all the criticism. Critics might carp, but T.J. Duckett says "Mike gets a bad rap." Gregg Doyel says he's starting to think Vick's an idiot (shock). Bob Molinaro says he's "more loser than winner." This blogger...

Early Morning Taunting

Sorry, I turned my phone off last night. Something no good beat reporter should ever do, frankly. At the risk of permanently alienating any readers I have who don't happen to be curious about Nick Rimando's future career as a spy, here are some updates. 1) Iceberg apparently left the...

I guess I usually don't post this late at night, because the theory is that there aren't necessarily thousands of people sitting in front of their computer checking a stupid sports blog at 10:04 p.m., but events have intervened. Just got a call on my phone from a restricted number....

Brother, you just got singled out for a special, unique humiliation. I identified Two Thirds yesterday as Jeremy Gifford, the owner of T.T. Reynolds in Fairfax, which is true, but he's also a part-owner of Fly Lounge in downtown D.C. Well, it would appear our friend Nicky made a trip...

In four parts: 1) My car is starting to smell. 2) Nick, through D.C. United staffers, is now openly taunting his stalkers. Check these photos out. I have no way of verifying that they were actually taken today, as claimed, but I guess I'll take their word on this one....
