Eleven Things You Didn't Know About the GW Women

(Note: I realize the headline might be a little much. Like, for most of you, I could list the team's top 11 players, and those would be 11 things you didn't know about the GW women. But hey, they're 20-2, they deserve a little run.) 1) Of the 14 men's...

Gilbert and the Wizznutzz Hit the Wall Street Journal

David Roth has a story about Gilbert in today's Wall Street Journal Online. So Gil hit Time and the WSJ in the same day. Dude's keeping me here way too late on a Friday. Anyhow, I don't have the subscription-free link. Here's the basic point: "Even though he's an All-Star...

Caron and Gilbert on the Blazers Game

Just to emphasize the disconnect..... Here's Caron after practice this morning, discussing Sunday's game with Portland, during which Gilbert will supposedly score 50 points: "You know what, we're just gonna focus on the Portland Trail Blazers against the Washington Wizards. We're gonna go out there and just attack it like...

Wizards Games: Cheaper Than Caribbean Vacations, Maybe

This item probably demands actual journalistic research, but I just don't have the time right now. Which ought to be my slogan, along with John Feinstein's "a little too clever for real people" mantra. Anyhow, former Bog poetry winner Ouij sent me a distressed e-mail this morning. Seems he wanted...

Maryand vs. Virginia: The Wizards Respond

Washington Wizards point guard Gilbert Arenas seems to be getting a certain amount of attention lately for being somewhat of an entertaining fellow. As Gilbert "wrote" on his "blog" today, "We have a funny locker room." I'd submit that this is a true statement, and that, publicity levels notwithstanding, the...

Gil's a One-Armed Frisky Sex Symbol

Gil blogs. Just read it yourself. As expected, things get weirder. 1) "They call me the 'Golden Arm.' The 'Golden One Arm'." No, they don't, but still. Lots to follow on the shooting competition with DeShawn. 2) "See, on the tape, they don't show you what he was doing....He didn't...

Gilbert's Taste in Sushi

I think I need to amend my e-mail to that Portuguese feature writer this morning, which outlined some of Gilbert's quirks, to include this one: he special orders California rolls and cream-cheese rolls fried in tempura batter. The Reliable Source, joining the Gilbert train, actually has two Wizards items this...

Daniel Snyder: More Milkshakes

This nostalgia stuff is getting out of control for Mister Snyder. First he buys his favorite childhood team, and now he's buying Johnny Rockets, "the 1950s-inspired restaurant chain known for employees that sing and dance...." Which joke-like direction do you go with this? That after the Gibbs hire we all...

And there's so much of it. On Tuesday, the Mayor of Foggy Bottom was named to the NBDL all-star game, which will take place at Mandalay Bay the day before the NBA all-star game. Unlike the writer of that story, I might hesitate in calling it the "First Annual" NBDL...

In lieu of the link dump at the beginning of the day, what say we try this? Local No. 1 Georgetown earns praise after that win last night. Juan Tello Palacios says the Hoyas probably have the best frontcourt he's seen. Rick Pitino says the Hoyas would win 9 out...

Signing Day Coverage (by the names)

Since signing day is apparently one of the hallowed days on the sports calendar, I figure I should acknowledge it in some way. And with help from colleague Alan Goldenbach, I realized the most Bog-worthy acknowledgement possible: by the names. Best homage to the Golden Girls: OL Bearthur Johnson, Maryland...

Wizards on Tying Ties

Losing locker rooms usually aren't good for Bog purposes. That's another reason why you haven't seen much Caps in here lately. But oddly enough, the Wiz locker room usually winds up being ok, win or lose. And you can spare me the lectures on how these guys aren't taking the...

GW: Better at Beer Pong Than Georgetown

So says Local Poll voter Clay Travis, who has authored some groundbreaking beer pong analysis for CBS Sportsline, whose standards for sports journalism are apparently as low as The Post's, or at least, as Washingtonpost.com's.
