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

Wow

Not to intrude again on the college basketball talk, but here's a Blog Poll: On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate Friday night's debut of Blog Show on Washington Post Live, featuring choking dog Dan Steinberg as one host, the non-speech-encumbered Jamie Mottram of Mister Irrelevant as another...

Joey Dorsey Wants Him Some Greg Oden

Wow wow wow. The Memphis-Ohio State regional semifinal got a little juicier a few minutes ago, when West Baltimore's own Joey Dorsey, Memphis' 6-9 junior center, pretty much called out Greg Oden. A sample: "It's going to be David and Goliath," Dorsey said. "I'm Goliath. He's the little man. I'm...

Some San Antonio Loose Ends

Tremendous games here last night, a sports fan's dream and a sportswriter's nightmare. Brutal deadlines. Apologies to anyone who read my stories in today's birdcage liner and found they only approached coherency. They also lacked a few details, so here are some things you didn't read in today's paper. -There...

Clock issues in San Antonio?

Don't get bent out of shape over your bracket. If last year taught me anything, it is that no matter how much basketball you watch or don't watch, this is little more than a guess. Texas A&M seemed like the ideal sleeper Final Four pick in the summer. To see...

Local Hoops Poll Week 15: Additional Pithy Comments

Dan Steinberg here. Are these 11 days late? Yes. Are many of them outdated to the point of making no sense? Yes. Is this a foolish entry? Yes. But I promised the Local Voters I would publish these before tonight's games begin, and I never break a promise, except the...

Georgetown's Commodore

Greetings from East Rutherford, where I am joined by not one, not two, but THREE fabulous Washington Post columnists: Mike Wise, Sally Jenkins and John Feinstein. Today's blog plan was to write about Martin Bahar*, Georgetown's charming graduate manager. He is a local guy (Bullis), a 2006 graduate of Vanderbilt...

Gilbert Issues a Manifesto

Dan Steinberg here. Not about college basketball. I was supposed to be on a conference call about WPL today, but I was completely distracted by Gilbert's latest blog. It's 3,621 words. I'll be honest, he could use an editor. He repeats himself, repeatedly. He takes excessive umbrage at the words...

Practice day in St. Louis

Arrived in St. Louis late last night. This is a logistical dream for the reporter because the hotel is located across the street from the dome. No Jerry Palm sighting yet. I had a great sleep until I awoke in the middle of the night when I realized ATM Kilgore...

Something New

Wow, that last post had been there for a while. So, um, anyone want to guess the women's Final Four? Or take another stab at the men's Final Four? Or the Wizards' playoff seeding? Or the ETA for the Caps in the playoffs? Or the number of ounces a typical...

Remember the Alamo!

And don't forget the cliches! Adam Kilgore here, live from San Antonio, where I'm mostly basking in the fact that I'm about half a country away from D.C., so I can easily avoid watching/appearing on Washington Post Live. (Only kidding, bosses.) Sorry for not blogging much, still getting the hang....

On Leslie Nielsen and BobbyBoswell.com

Dan Steinberg here. And this isn't about college basketball. So it was a big night for parties last night. First was ROCK THE HILL, a welcome to the 110th Congress featuring Leslie Nielsen, the Stanley Cup and award-winning country artists Emerson Drive, sponsored by the Canadian Embassy, taking place at...

John Thompson III buys Egg McMuffins

Here is something that I would've paid to see: Georgetown Coach John Thompson III standing in line at McDonald's earlier this week and asking to buy dozens of McMuffins. Georgetown students camped out at McDonough Arena on Monday night in order to be first in line when tickets for the...

On Washington Post Live

Dan Steinberg here. Do you care what I think about Washington Post Live, our exciting new venture into the world of boring live TV talk shows? No, you do not. How do I know this? Because of my seven phone numbers and 14 e-mail addresses and multiple blog comment spaces,...

This year's Florida

I leave for St. Louis tonight. This region has my name written all over it, so I can't wait. The one-and-only Jerry Palm will be there. So will A.J. Graves of Butler. So will 5-6 Tajuan Porter of Oregon and the Tark boys of Vegas. (Before my wife just walked...

Best Sweet 16 matchups

This is the calm before the storm, a chance to unpack and repack, pay some bills and reintroduce myself to my wife. But before I leave for St. Louis tomorrow night, I'm looking at which team fits the profile of last year's Florida squad. When you consider the course of...

Little Pat's Big Dunk, other W-S odds and ends

I'm feeling a little guilty that I reduced Patrick Ewing Jr.'s huge reverse dunk in the final minute of the BC game to a mere sentence in my game story, especially after watching the replay on ESPN about a hundred times and seeing John McDonnell's great photo in the paper....

Final word on Buffalo

Eric checking in the morning after the return from Buffalo. On the tournament and road experiences: The year after George Mason, there will officially be no George Mason. No double-digit seed has advanced to the Sweet 16. Butler doesn't qualify as a potential Mason, and neither does Southern Illinois, both...

Ok, Rank Em

I've always wanted to be in one of those pools where you have a snake draft for the NCAA field; eight people get eight teams each, and whoever winds up with the champion wins. Apparently something similar can be done with the Sweet 16 field. While waiting for someone to...
