D.C. Sports Bog: February 25, 2007 - March 3, 2007

The Jack, JC, and Mean Seth

Quite an atmosphere last night at John Paul Jones Arena, not named for the Revolutionary War hero or the Led Zeppelin bassist. Virginia's seminal win, one that likely gave them the ACC regular season title, closed a tremendous first season at JPJ. There was some trepidation before the season that...

American-Colgate Blog, Coming In 2009

Watching the replay of Bowie State-Johnson C. Smith in the CIAA quarters. Nice win for the Bulldogs. After it was over, the ESPN guy said this to Bowie Coach Luke D'Alessio: "You look kind of tired, man." Ha ha. That's not tired. Thanks for all the kind wishes. Mom is...

The New Bog Baby Pool

All the congratulations for Dan is quite moving really, but it got this pinch-Bogger to thinking: When will Steinberg actually break down and why? Those of us with children know -- and the rest can surely imagine -- that the first few days with your first are among the most...

Seeds of Change

So here's a question, variations of which were popular on today's college basketball chat with Eric Prisbell and Camille Powell: Now that our three ACC schools and Georgetown all appear to be virtual locks for the NCAA tournament, where will they be seeded? It's hard to fathom that Maryland, which...

Baby Bog!

Hello, friends of Bog. We have HUGE breaking news: Annys & Dan's baby, Ida Sophia Steinberg, was born at 2:58 a.m. this morning, weighing in at 5 pounds 13 ounces. (Who won the pool?) Anyway, while Dan takes a little while to learn to be a father (this shouldn't take...

Local Hoops Poll Week 13: Additional Pithy Comments

Some good ones in here. I would like to state, for the record, that I am contractually prohibited from including pithy comments from David Larimer and Matt Bonesteel in the Official Local Hoops Poll. Otherwise, there would be a lot of them in there. But seriously, read all of these....

D.C. United: Hair Today, Etc

So I went to D.C. United practice today, not just because of grumblings that I was scared of Official Beat Writer Steve Goff's all-powerful Soccer Insider, but because I had agreed to be shadowed for the day by a high school student who is hoping to become a journalist and...

Wizards Sign Mike Hall, Release James Lang

This from Ivan Carter....according to a league source, the Wizards will sign Foggy Bottom's own Mike Hall to a 10-day contract and will release James Lang, crushing my hopes and dreams of a James Lang blog but making GW fans very happy. You'll remember that Hall had a great preseason...

More Bog T-Shirts

We're rapidly approaching the day when I have more random Internets people making t-shirts in my honor than Tony Kornheiser does. Apparently he warned me not to "poke the bear" or something like that the other day. I can only assume that this does not count as poking the bear....

Another Bog

I have to say, I always figured I had the only Washington-based Bog that focused on D.C. United, Alecko Eskandarian, Gilbert Arenas and YAYSports!, but I was wrong. 'Tis another. It's called Bogland. Comcast Super Duper SportsyNet producer Littles found it. I have no idea what to make of this,...

Gilbert, in the Blogs, Again, With Many Chuck Klosterman References

And Gil's own blog actually takes second fiddle to True Hoop, who interviewed Chuck Klosterman about his upcoming Gilbert NYTimes Mag story. The key point of the story, at least through Henry Abbott's eyes, seems to be that Gilbert is not really all that weird. Which, at this point, is...

A Few College Basketball Links

So Dick Vitale has cast his vote for the No. 1 team in the area, and he says Georgetown, calling the Hoyas a legit national title contender. Thanks for that. The Examiner says the Hoyas' loss to Syracuse showed they're human. In other news, who knew that Anne Arundel County...

Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Virginia on 30 of 30 bracket projections at The Bracket Project, with average seeding in that order. Old Dominion on 29 of 30 projections (average seeding of 11). VCU on 26 projections (average seeding of 12). Not sure why everyone's sleeping on American/Loyola/Morgan State/GW etc. Pessimists....

The Heat Visit the White House

Hockey 'n Heels

Apologies for the slow day, but I've been on the phone attempting to line up some super celebrity NCAA tournament bracket participants, for a joint, non-monetary, super celebrity NCAA tournament pool I'm helping coordinate with my new friends at Comcast (SportsNet). The super celebrities who are likely to submit bragging-rights-only...

Possibly the Greatest Idea I've Ever Heard

A Local Poll voter, whom I won't identify because he's an important law school student and shouldn't be wasting his time on such trifles, sent me an e-mail last night that set my heart a-racing. Why not have pools for every conference tournament, he and his genius friend wondered? More...

A Long Proud History of Georgetown Costumes

After yesterday's furor over costumed Georgetown fans, I got several supportive e-mails, including this one from Georgetown grad Meghan, which I felt was worth posting. Apparently, as the headline says, there is a long proud history of costumed Georgetown fans making merry. How she knows this, I'm not quite sure,...

Local Hoops Poll Week 13: Love at the Top

Don't ever let anyone tell you that your vote doesn't matter. Despite 75 voters, which is among the all-time highs, only three voting points separated No. 2 Maryland and No. 3 Virginia Tech, which, in mathematical terms, is a "not that many." The national polls sure favor Va. Tech in...

Also, I thought it was funny....

I keep talking about how the Wiz are accumulating The Fans They Deserve. Well, it would appear they would also be accumulating The Fan Clubs They Deserve, if they were Internet hucksters instead of basketball players. The club's official logo. See, the Gilbert Arenas Club's stated goal is to meet...

Seriously, everyone should be happy this morning, every single one of you malcontents. All your teams are winning.
