D.C. Sports Bog: January 28, 2007 - February 3, 2007

Hurricanes at the White House

Rod Brind'Amour has a general rule; if someone makes fun of you, you make fun of him back. But there are exceptions. Like, if the President of the United States makes a crack about how you can judge hockey players by looking at their noses, and then he thanks them...

Gil vs. DeShawn, the Video

As always, much love to wizardsdotcom for getting this done. In a lot of situations like this, I might be worried that my words sort of oversold the event, but not in this case. I'm guessing many people will wind up seeing this, one way or the other. Thank heavens...

Tommy Soehn, Indoor Superstar

Well, Kim asked for it, so here it is. This is new D.C. United coach Tommy Soehn's 1991 Pacific Trading Cards card, when he played for the Wichita Wings of the MISL. He's listed as a 5-foot-10, 160-pound defender. In his 110 career games to that point, he had recorded...

Gil vs. DeShawn

[Actual news: Songaila may play against the Lakers but only in a limited capacity; Caron wanted to cry when he heard he made the all-star team but held it in and didn't cry until he got home and hid in a closet (at least that's what he said); and Eddie...

DCU's Rookies Choose Numbers

Did you notice the part of the AP's Austin Kearns story where he said he was switching numbers, from 28 to 25. "Kind of a new start," he said. Well, he's not the only one. D.C. United midfielder Devon McTavish is switching from 22 to 18, the former number of...

Non Friends of the Bog: Justin Timberlake and Pink

For the record, the Justin Timberlake/Pink show at the Verizon Center for some reason required that the media's wireless access be cut off this morning. Also, that all the chairs be removed from the media room, which is serving as the staging area for Pink's band tonight. (The G'town locker...

What You Need to Know

Tuff Juice in '07 wins big. Caron will return to the scene of his marriage as an all-star (and Eddie Jordan goes, too). The bad news, obviously, is Jamison's three-to-six-week absence; Caron says he and Gil will...

Meet Your New D.C. United Supplemental Draft Picks: Shawn Crowe

The most viscerally notable newcomer at DCU training this morning was goalie Shawn Crowe, who is one of two GKs currently in camp, along with Ryan McIntosh. (Starter Troy Perkins, of course, is in national team camp.) For one thing, Crowe yells very, very loudly. Frequently, he yells "Good stuff!!!!!"...

Devon McTavish Philosophizes

So Sharon Ryan, the philosophy chair at West Virginia, started this blog called "The Question," which asks ordinary non-philosophers to get a tad philosophical. And it seems The Question has been getting all sporty. West Virginia sports celebs like Jerry West, Rich Rodriguez, John Beilein and Mike Gansey have participated,...

Gil Charges Teammates to Come to Super Bowl Party

Wow, Gil's blog, out of control. As previously noted, this blog is really just a phone interview conducted by, I believe, an NBA.com staffer. So really it's like an exclusive online only once-a-week interview. But no matter. Today's is an all-time great. Just go read it yourself. But if you'd...

And in the best possible manner; refusing even to acknowledge its disappearance of five months, and immediately jumping into the fray by noting the following: Speaking before a joint session of Congress...
