What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

We've got Major League Lacrosse in D.C.! We're a Major League city! (And in honor of the election, listen to this, easily the best coverage I've heard thus far.)

Wait, Brendan bodyslammed Etan? Our lil' Brendan? Anyhow, the Wiz continue to lose in Orlando, where DeShawn Stevenson misses his old teammates and backup Carlos Arroyo dominates. Plus, Team Wiz reaches out to its Dakota farm club.

Only No. 8 Georgetown is ranked among the locals, although

George Mason gets a vote. None for rebuilding Maryland, which needs to end the struggles with its new version of Steve Blake, starting tonight against "nationally known" Hampton. (Gary. Sigh.) The optimistic Hokies also get some votes, and former Maryland assistant Mike Lonergan returns as a head coach, as does D.C. native Kevin Nickelberry. And Terps football catches another break; Miami QB Kyle Wright might be out this week.

The Caps are jubilant after scoring four unanswered goals, and the visiting media label them "one of the league's emerging clubs." The Nats eliminate two AAA managerial candidates, including Kevin from "The Office", and color analyst Tom Paciorek is let go.

The Skins blah blah blah about must-wins and momentum. One enthusiastic scribe even says they "have a little breathing room," which is dumb. Gibbs takes responsibility for everything and defends growth-by-free-agency, while Rick Snider isn't buying. (Another columnist, though, sees "a glimmer of hope.") The Moss Man is still questionable, and, most fascinating, the Skins are the first team in NFL history to score exactly 22 points in three straight games. Parcells defends his dumb decision to go for two ("I go by the chart"), and perchance the Eagles will be distracted by McNabb's new line of clothing.
