D.C. Sports Bog: December 31, 2006 - January 6, 2007

Birthday Bash Celebrity RSVP's

1) Alex Ovechkin. Planning to go to tonight's game. Planning to go to the birthday bash. Will have to be a short stay, b/c of tomorrow's game. But still, the party's wattage grows. 2) Walshy. One of Gil's sponsored video gamers. At least, the party is on the calendar on...

Afternoon Birthday Bash Update

Well, I finally got to touch an Arenas Express card yesterday. The Reliable Source has one. If you look on Page 2 of today's Sports section, you can see Gilbert, in his preppy sweater, holding one of the cards. But I never touched that one. I didn't even technically press...

Caron Butler Channels Gilbert

Because I never managed yesterday to link to any video in which you could see Caron Butler stripping down and preparing to get all Agent Zero with his used-up jersey, here's that video. I suppose I should have posted this earlier. Apologies. I got the link from SLAMOnline, which named...

Does This Mean the Microfiber Was Drago?

If you read Joseph "The Omnipresent Beret" White's widely disseminated Wizards game story last night, you were surely intrigued by the description of the video montage showing the Rocky-like experts of the old-new-old-old-new-old leather NBA basketball, which played on the 'Tron between the first and second periods. Luckily, the Wizards...

DCU Plays Do-Re-Mi

Be honest, you always thought if Freddy Adu starred in a Sound of Music video, it'd be "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," right? Well, you'd have been wrong. Anyhow, this is one of the best videos ever. Another winner from our friends at The Far Post. And I'm not ashamed to...

Dude is prolific, considering he has an actual job and all. And thanks to the Wizznutzz for doing my work for me, in terms of collecting links that D.C. sports fans might like to see and posting 12 billion words about them. Although their words are more made-up than mine....

By the way, Washingtonpost.com, please rename this the D.C. Arenas Bog, when you've got a sec. Thanks. Here's the highlight of the game winner. Stevie B's orgasmic "Daaaaaaggeeeeeerrrrrr......" call is indeed audible, if you listen closely. Thanks to MJD for putting this clip on the innertubenets, and for linking to...

LeBron and the Topless Lady

Whoa, YaySports had basically the same "Swag is Phenomenal" headline I had. Except I had it second, and they had it first. My bad. To make it up to Yay, I'll link to their version of the "LeBron and the Topless Lady" story that is quickly becoming the No. 1...

"My Swag Was Phenomenal"

Here's Gil last night, after the game. He went on like this for hours, but my video battery eventually conked out. That's what's causing the beeping noise at the end. But still, despite some dodgy camera work, this is worth your while. My favorite parts: 1) Antawn Jamison, from across...

Gilbert Arenas Has Phenomenal Swag

That's what Gil said, and that's what Andray Blatche was telling everyone in the locker room last night. It's all getting sorta ridiculous, Gil averaging 36 ppg over his last nine, the national media rolling in, Diddy and T.I. and Busta Rhymes on tap for Gil's birthday party this weekend,...

Gil's Party: Super Duper Fly

Well, 48 hours out from Gil's birthday bash, and no one here at the VC can think about anything else. Or at least, I can't. You'll be able to read about it tomorrow AM in the Reliable Source. The party has definitely been a topic of conversation in the locker...

Arenas and George Mason

1) Bog friend Adrian Wojnarowski posted his homage to Arenas over at Yahoo!!!!!!!! Sports. Worth a read. Which is sorta like the copy writer at the Safeway circular pointing out to his readers that the NY Times might be worth a look every now and again, but still. There's one...

As anyone over the age of 50 out there who still reads the newspaper might realize, my blog is often excerpted on Page 2 of the Washington Post's sports section, where Tony Kornheiser's micro-mini-columns used to reside, before he started interviewing celebrities inside sporting venues for ESPN.

Vegas Oddsmakers Love the Terps!!

During the college football season, as you well remember, I posted weekly Top 25 rankings, as prepared by Las Vegas Sports Consultants, advisors to the Nevada sports books. The big justification behind my plan to hand college football rankings over to Las Vegas was that Vegas would offer an unbiased...

Notes From a Sort of Non-Moribund Verizon Center
