Style Advice for the Warriors

The Warriors are, needless to say, America's Team. Which makes Baron Davis's facial hair America's Beard, and Andris Biedrins's spiked hair America's Porcupine, and Matt Barnes's follicular brilliance America's Mohawk. And so, with Davis-obsessed teenagers no doubt slathering their faces with Rogaine and their heads with styling gel at this...

La Bomba T-Shirts

Not speaking a lick of Spanish, I'll not be much help concerning the Bomba Navarro site, which is loosely translated as "Player Who Will Never Ever Suit Up For the Washington Wizards." La Bomba, as you're no doubt aware, is Juan Carlos Navarro, the Barcelona guard whose rights the Wizards...

Nats Cookies: Not the Cheapest

A reader points out that Adam Archuleta jerseys aren't the only sort-of D.C. sports items for sale. Washington Nationals cookies are currently available at a major discount on Amazon.com: 24 cookies for $24.00. In fact, so are Orioles cookies. In fact, so are the cookies of virtually every Major League...

Mayweather and De La Hoya Spew Venom

Weeks ago, I wrote about the Mayweather-De La Hoya hate fest at Union Station, in which my great regret was not asking the boxers to settle their differences over an Auntie Anne's pretzel or two. Well, the Comcast SportsyNet folks cleverly saved the footage from that day and used it...

The Season of McTavish

Careful readers of this blog might remember that back in February or so, I suggested I might want to register DevonMcTavish.com, just to make sure no one else moved in on that turf. Devon McTavish being, at the time, a little-used but media-friendly D.C. United reserve. Needless to say, I...

Archuleta, On Sale

With thanks to WaPo editor Cindy, via the comments section of the Redskins Insider, I realized that today would be the perfect day to purchase Archuleta gear for your loved ones, at something like 75 percent off. I believe such wardrobe items are officially known as "inactive wear." Also, be...

NASCAR Fan Loves Crown Royal

The thing about Jim Stewart is, he actually loves Crown Royal. Like, it's a huge part of his life. Like, I've never heard of anyone to whom Crown Royal is so important. Stewart, of course, is the name behind this weekend's NASCAR race. Officially, it's known as "Crown Royal presents...

A New Wizards Jingle

Yeah, the season's over. Whatever. I talked to Dana Mozie the other day. He's the guy who, reportedly, wrote or helped write "You the Man," the old Bullets/Wizards jingle whose video (seen below) has coursed 'round the Internets this winter. I say "reportedly" because, like everything that's supposed to be...

Which NBA Player Are You?

I'm not even sure how I got here, but this site Rum & Monkey has this oldish NBA Personality Test, among a whole bunch of odd tests, none of which were odd enough to make me want to fill them out. Point being, it's not really an NBA personality test,...

The Brawling Potomac Nats

I'm still waiting for someone to provide the definitive account of how a game-ending double-play ball in the ninth inning of a Class A baseball game last week wound up sending two players to the hospital because of brawl-related injuries, one with a concussion "due to a severe blow to...

LaRon Landry is Evil

My Wizardly obsession prevented me from offering anything on the NFL draft, which approximately 9 million people blogged about, but there were a couple things I wanted to point out. 1) Per FanHaus, the Redskins are responsible for both drafted Larons in NFL history. 2) H.B. Blades, like his dad...

Were the Wizards Actually Different?

"The swagfest is officially on pause right now." -- Caron Butler "So many things to remember, so many things to remember." -- Andray Blatche "It's the end of the season, not the end of the world." -- Antonio Daniels "You can't wonder, now. I don't really want to dwell on...

Wizard Wrist Bands, and the Missing Haywood

We're all still at the Wizards' year-end media availability. Haven't learned much thus far, except that the rodent I saw last night was likely a rat, and not a mouse. My bad. I'm sorry, but I'm not done with this team just yet. It takes a professional blogger to wring...

A Mouse, and a Wizznut, and the End

The Wizards lost last night. Their season is over. I think back to so many things. The first day of training camp, when Gilbert told me about reading the Harry Potter books: I'm regular. I mean, I guess I'm supposed to be reading, what, the Phil Jackson book or the...
