What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

This, friends, is what good announcing sounds like.

NBA people talk about Gil's place among the league's superstars and the Cleveland paper says Gil is fixated on LeBron, Tommy Knott says the Wiz could be third-best in the East and Wilbon says there's no way they should miss the playoffs, Eddie Jordan says the final three games last year were the "most excruciating" moments of his coaching career, Songaila will miss 10-12 weeks, and Gil and Abe Pollin will combine to donate tens of thousands of dollars to D.C. schools.

The Nats coaching staff will bring back just one member, although the hitting and bullpen coach will remain with the organization, and Brevard County will spend $2.5 million fixing up their Spring Training home. Caps prospect Tomas Fleischmann could be playing downtown very soon, DCU's Esky criticizes the team defense, and a defender agrees.

The Skins close the season with the NFL's fourth-hardest schedule, but at least they lead the league in something (penalty yards). One Skins beat writer says the offense is decent and the defense is putrid, and another says the defensive breakdowns "have been shocking." The team hires another coach (just what they needed), the official Web site calls this week's game a "key NFC East matchup" (crucial, really), Bill Parcells says Jon Jansen "doesn't look like the player he was a couple of years ago" and Len Shapiro savages Mister Snyder.

Maryland QB Sam Hollenbach is showing more maturity in the passing game, where he's helped by pass-catching backs. The top-ranked Terps' women try to build a dynasty, and the Terps' men's soccer team starts the postseason looking for another title. Also, UVA DE Chris Long says NFL talk is "ridiculous," and a Va. Tech lineman discovers a long-lost sister.
