D.C. Sports Bog: February 18, 2007 - February 24, 2007

We Are The Redskins

Gotta figure this thing has made the blogging rounds for years, but I can verify that I personally have never seen it, and so I'll go ahead post this, asking only what happened to the days when mustachioed football players wore tight jeans and white sneakers and arm wrestled in...

Local Hoops Poll Week 12: Additional Pithy Comments

Yeah, they're outdated. I don't care. 1. Georgetown If they beat Pitt on Saturday, you might as well crown them Atlantic Eleven champs. (Glenn Arnold) Can't see them dropping from the top spot anytime soon. (Atlantic 11 jinx commences in 3...2...1...) (Eric Swensen) Georgetown closes out the season with games...

All CBB All The Time

To reiterate yesterday's news, when I leave the Bog in the next few days, it will become 100 percent college basketball for the next month, featuring incites from college basketball scribes Camille Powell (Georgetown, bad TV), Steve Goff (George Mason, American, futsal), Adam Kilgore (Virginia, Virginia Tech, 7-11 and Waffle...

The Fans the Wiz Deserve, Parts IV and V

In previous installments of this popular series, I've tried to gently suggest that, for a team as unique as these Wizards, it's comforting to know that their fans have followed suit; that, despite our reputation for being nothing but a bunch of suits, we actually have some real fan star...

Hoyas Fans Sleep Out For Tickets

Got an e-mail last night from Local Poll voter Robert Lintott who, though he is decidedly not a Georgetown fan, recognizes a Bog story when he sees one. Turns out Robert is friends with Local Poll voter Paul Campbell, who is, in fact, a Georgetown fan and who was in...

Gilbert Arenas: Must See "Hannibal Rising"

As previously reported, Gilbet bailed on his postgame media Tuesday night. He did the same last night. Combined with the fact that he doesn't speak to the media at practices or before games, his new habit of not speaking to the media after games means he doesn't speak to the...

D.C. United Fan Plans to Eat Her Shoes

Steve Goff, as all you soccer fans fully realize, is absolutely slaying over on his Soccer Insider blog. I knew that would happen. That's why I tried to resign, pending the first day of the Goff Blog. Banshee Jay, our favorite tattooed DCU star since 'Tino Quaranta. This image isn't...

Wizards Inspire More Rhymes

Back when you could post comments on the Bog but no one really read it much besides D.C. United fans, we had this poetry slam thing, and Bog Reader Ouij proved a master wordsmith. Well, he still is. The poems have been coming as quickly as the minor league sports...

Wizards Employ Jamie Foxx

Reader Adam wisely reminded me last night that people at Deadspin and the 700 Level were working themselves into a lather identifying courtside NBA all-star game celebs. Reader Adam also wisely noted that one well-dressed young black man with a great seat was identified on Flickr as "Jamie Foxx, ghost-writing...

German Sports Blog

The Golden Age of Washington Sports

Look around, people. This here's the golden age of sports in Washington. We're a sports blogging mecca, we have the most bloggable team in professional sports, and we have a perhaps unprecedented stream of lesser-known professional sports teams pouring into our midst. The ABA's Nighthawks might not be new, but...

Sucking Up Part II: Mike Wise (Plus, German Help Needed)

Since I wrote an ode to Tony Kornheiser earlier today, let's throw a little love in the Mike Wise direction. Wise's fantabulous Gilbert Arenas story won second place in the feature/enterprise category from the Pro Basketball Writers Association, which means Jason Quick's winning story about the Blazers must be really...

Sports Bloggers: Still White, Still Male

(Last self-indulgent post of the day, promise, more college hoops coming momentarily.) Gotta say, my favorite line in my very very very long Q&A with Zach over at The Big Picture came from Zach himself, when he wrote the following: "Many mainstream media outlets now have blogs, but they don't...

The thing everyone was talking about during Tuesday night's Wiz game was the Garnett trashtalking. He was going at it pretty hard with 'Dre Blatche, which, based on my conversations with 'Dre, must have taken a bit of work on Garnett's part. I wish I had a chance to ask...

Posters

A few quick points I'd like to make about Tuesday night's Wizards game. 1) It was hibachi poster night. I was walking around looking for extras when some security lady dumped a stack in my arms. "I don't give a dang," she said. Later in the night I found myself...

The Full Story on DeShawn "Mister 50" Stevenson

Gilbert took off without talking to the media last night. DeShawn Stevenson decided to take his place. It was freaky. He was even mimicking Gilbert's timing on laugh lines. An all-around brilliant performance. As careful readers of this Bog will recall, last week I was the only person reporting on...

Yup, it's true. DeShawn Stevenson and LeToya Luckett are going public with their long-simmering relationship, and (I believe) this is (maybe) the first place to report it.
