What You Need to Know, in a Bunch of Words

Lots on Acta: the Times focuses on how he blew everyone away in his interview and the influence he can have in the Dominican, Svrluga focuses on his energy, the AP shows his sense of humor, MLB.com explains his emotions and potential roster moves while pointing out he's the third-youngest head man in major U.S. pro sports, and Fredericksburg describes the positive vibe yesterday. Columnists were impressed; Thom Loverro says Acta "answered every question with a championship style," Rick Snider says "he's funny and forceful, brainy and brawny," Boz traces his lively career path, but Dick Heller is more guarded after a look at history. The Phillies could make an offer to Soriano today (or maybe yesterday) as his bargaining position continues to rise and Lou Piniella confirms the Cubs' interest. And the D.C. Council

opens the door for three stadium garages, a victory for Fenty.

Navy suspended two football players for using performance enhancers last year, Maryland's Josh Wilson is calling himself "The Truth," and Va. Tech's Branden Ore says he'll definitely be back next year.

Jason Campbell (the 17th Skins starter in 14 years) gets text messages from Donovan McNabb and feels like he's won the lottery, and teammates are also supportive, although one veteran said the kid isn't ready. One writer says the move is "the biggest gamble in Joe Gibbs' coaching career," and JC will be playing without Clinton Portis, who will have season-ending shoulder surgery.

The Caps have one of the healthiest rosters in the NHL although Tarik encourages realism, Chris Clark says he's "not a big bling-bling type of guy," Gary Bettman is coming to tonight's Caps game (and to The Post's offices this afternoon) and the NHL will upload highlights directly onto YouTube (registration).

In college hoops, GW smashes Dartmouth with a devastating performance, American rolls over Morgan State, Navy rolls over Brown, Virginia signs Louis Farrakhan's grandson, an analyst loves Va. Tech's recruiting class, George Mason starts a revolution and here's a friendly story about a Georgetown player who played for the same coach as a GW player whose academic record we scrutinized last year. Hmmm. And in college soccer, Maryland hosts St. John's tonight.

Gil is changing his mind about the new basketballs, here are your unprotected DCU players and in a shocking development, Baltimore's ABA franchise folds.

Your comment about the GTOWN player who went to the same school that the POST raked GW over the coals last season was appropriate. Did the POST miss that or did they deliberately cover it up because they are intimidated by GTOWN? Surely, given the front page treatment that the Post gave to the GW story, similar treatment should have been given to GTOWN. Something smells very fishy on 15th street

So are you going to the Washington Bayhawks press conference today, Dan? I would imagine it'll garner about two sentences' worth of attention...

You ought to post the list of the various references you get around the web and the Post's site. Steve Goff just encouraged people to check this out.

So what's the Post Office of the day?
