D.C. Sports Bog: March 25, 2007 - March 31, 2007

Crazy (and Awesome) Betting Lines

I found myself thinking the other day, "You know, I have a strong feeling that Joakim Noah will have more rebounds than Samuel Dalembert on Saturday." It was weird, because Sam Dalembert plays for the 76ers, and Noah plays for Florida. Don't you wish you could bet on things like...

Mike Wise: Wow

An important note about this post: This is pretty much the tip of last night's iceberg. What lies below the surface, mostly stories from John Feinstein at a WaPo staff dinnfer at Morton's, cant' be printed and, really, I can hardly remember some of the best stuff. Just a total...

Can Colonials Root for Hoyas?

Two questions, submitted by a GW reader, who needs your help 1) Any idea as to where the biggest Georgetown revelers will be getting rowdy on Saturday? I figure places like JPaul's, G'Town Billiards, and The Tombs will be jam-packed. I don't like jam-packed, so maybe you have an idea...

Hoya E-mails

First e-mail: "Delta overbooked a flight and there are now at least 20 Hoya fans stuck w/o a flight to ATL." Party at DCA. Second e-mail, from Atlanta: "Was dining at ESPN Zone tonight after attending the open practice, and was informed by the staff that Ohio State was eating...

So Long For Now

Signing off from the Georgia Dome for a long night, sure to culiminate at Waffle House due to popular demand. We'll more tomorrow (weekend Bogging!) with all sorts of picks, gambling information and Hack Hijinks from tonight. For now, I leave you with this look-a-like: Georgetown guard Jessie Sapp and...

Buckeyes Like Fogo de Chao and Camille Eats Again

Count Ohio State among the hordes of people who love Fogo de Chao. I spoke with the managers and walk-ons a little while ago, and they loved the "Meat Prepared the Gaucho Way." Sophomore walk-on Danny Peters reports that Greg Oden was out-eaten by several of the mangers -- clearly...

Why I Like Georgetown Part III, The Easter Bunny

Dan Steinberg here. I promise I'll cede this space to Kilgore after this final item. Also, go to Basketball Lifestyle Mag for more Hoyas blogging, including a Brandon Bowman Q&A. Point being, some of you might recall I wrote about costumes at Hoyas' games a while back. Some people apparently...

We're Talkin' About Practice

Georgetown practiced first today and, man, was it boring. There was pretty decent crowd, about 3,000 I'll estimate, but they were mostly quiet while the Hoyas shot jumpers and free throws. The crowd was so lulled to sleep that no one seemed to notice when Patrick Ewing Jr. swished a...

Camille: Alive and (Mostly) Well; And Much More

Just arrived in the Georgia Dome, where our Georgetown Beat Woman Camille Powell has been slaving since 9:30. Her "favorite" (I think she was being sarcastic) part of the morning came while walking to the shuttle, when one cab driver saw her walk by and yelled, "Look, there's Jackie Chan's...

Kevin Durant, Greg Oden and Endless Meat

So last night, Prisbell and I ate dinner at Fogo de Chao, which is one of those Brazilian steakhouse where like 50 waiters keep cutting about 12 differents kinds of steak on to your plate and never stop. (There's also a Fogo de Chao in D.C., and it comes highly...

Why I Like Georgetown, Part II: The Hoyas' Bard

So if you're wondering how it is that a 40 30-something pediatrician and message board poster from North Dakota came to be the bard of Georgetown, writing and recording Hoya-related versions of pop songs ranging from Joan Jett to the Monkees to Green Day to Gnarls Barkley, here's the shortish...

Links!

Good morning, folks, my first in Atlanta. Got in yesterday around 6 p.m., and it's already bustling with coaches eager to schooze for new jobs and sportswriters scrounging for free food. Later this morning, we'll have a recap of an eventful night one in the ATL, including a high-profile embrace...

Why I Like Georgetown, Part I: Jeff Green's Mom

Dan Steinberg here. This will kick off my three-part pre-Final Four series on why I like Georgetown, for those with lingering doubts on this matter. There are two problems with each of my three parts: 1) They're extremely dated, and are therefore already 100 percent familiar to Georgetown fans. 2)...

Gooooooooood Morning, Vietnam!

This section should be in the little permanent box above this, but I don't know how to do that yet. And that, folks, is the kind of savvy you can expect from me, Adam Kilgore, over the next three to five days. I'll be our primary blogger for the Final...

On the Bog and the Future

1) The completely unbiased Adam Kilgore will be blogging in these parts as close to full-time as he can manage from Atlanta this weekend. I've personally requested he ride down there in a VW bus with Hoya fans, Easter Bunny costumes and a crate full of bananas, which is what...

Not literally. Dan Steinberg here. And this is not about college basketball either. So listen, all my videos will now be done via Comcast SportsyNet, where Adam Littlefield is getting paid to sometimes follow me around with a video camera and put together the results. These things air on CSN's...

Luciano Emilio Speaks English

Sports Illustrated? Please Explain

This is not about college basketball. I feel like I owe the D.C. Sports Blog a public apology. See, on Comcast SportsyNet's "Washington Post Live" last week, the powers-that-be-powerful showed a screen shot of Sports Illustrated's Washington Nationals preview page, which links to the mag's four favorite Nats blogs.

Maryland Fans Harass Lunardi

Having read approximately 732 rants about ESPN bracketolographitiologisticer Joe Lunardi on the GW message boards, I had hoped that the angry-GW-e-mailers would have won a special place in Lunardi's heart. But alas, no. In a Q&A with blogger Just Call Me Juice, which I came to via The Big Lead,...

Celeb Pool End Game

Dan Steinberg here. I'll be honest, we invited too many schlubby journalists and assorted non-famous people into the celeb pool. The goal was to have a Final Four showdown between eight major A-list Washington celebrities, who would then come on Washington Post Live (5-6:30, M-F, Comcast SportsyNet) to debate their...

College Hoops Hotbed

So the D.C. area can make a strong case as the college basketball capitol over the past few years. In fact, over the last six years, three different schools, Maryland, George Mason and Georgetown, have made the Final Four. What other state, let alone area, has had that kind of...

Hoyas Win Hoyas Win Hoyas Win Hoyas Win Hoyas Win

I only counted five, but the drama had been pretty much purged by then. And I might have missed one or two. Anyhow, who's going to Atlanta? I'll be honest, Chvotkin made me think about going for a minute, but then the baby started hollering again and I thought better...
