D.C. Sports Bog: May 6, 2007 - May 12, 2007

The Mystics Channel Gilbert

This month's basketball drought has cost us our most bloggable D.C. athletes, and so I went to Mystics media day hopeful of finding the next straw chewer, the next face-feel-my-facer, the next "Hibachi" shouter. From a few cursory conversations, it quickly became clear that there were only two Mystics capable...

Meet Your Bayhawks, in Video Form

This probably wasn't my best work. But the Bayhawks weren't that into the whole Bog thing. I have to say, the Mystics (who had their media day this afternoon, more on that later) were much, much more helpful. I know some of you are a bit reluctant about my heading...

Watch Blog Show 8

It's part of the extravaganza known as Washington Post Live, on Comcast SportsyNet, today and every day from 5-6:30, as long as the day in question is not Saturday or Sunday. Blog Show is on at 6ish, but watch the whole show, so the ratings remain stellar and my daughter...

Vote For Devon McTavish

Remember how I recently wrote about DCU defender Devon McTavish and his starring role in the Winchester Apple Skin Flower Blossom Dance Song Festival? And how his dad then commented on that item? Well, with thanks to reader Grant, I realize I should have posted this: the sports front from...

Etan Thomas Takes On Jason Whitlock

I avoided the whole Jason Whitlock-Vivian Stringer faceoff for a few days, but it's hard to ignore once our own Etan Thomas weighs in on the topic. The backstory: at Spike Lee's Morehouse forum on black athletes this week, Stringer (the Rutgers women's coach) took on Whitlock (the large columnist)....

Sarah Lee Fries Golf Balls

So a golfer named Sarah Lee storms out to the first-round lead at an LPGA tourney in Williamsburg, and the media persons realize something. Wait a second, the media persons say to themselves, as the realization dawns. Spelling differences aside, Sarah Lee is ALSO THE NAME OF A FAMOUS COMPANY!!!!!!!...

The Nats Are Patching Holes

Yes, that's right, Stitch N' Pitch is coming to RFK. Stitch N' Pitch, of course, is the wildly popular, variously apostrophed Zanesville, Ohio-based program that brings together America's love for baseball with America's love of the NeedleArts. [Note to MLB: As others have said, maybe you don't want to be...

Mike Wise on Journey

Since this is the Interweb's No. 1 spot for information on the America's Cup of Polo, the horse-and-rock-and-gourmet-food-fest that Leesburg will unleash on the world this weekend, I wanted to touch on the other time in my life that Journey, the band, interacted with the glamorous world of sports media....

The Nighthawks Leave the ABA

After three glorious seasons in the ABA, a league that isn't satisfied unless it's either added or subtracted a franchise within the previous 24 hours, your Maryland Nighthawks (they of the Sun Ming Ming signing) have had enough. Yes, that's right, it's off to the PBL for the Nighthawks, the...

Gilbert Arenas on the Baron Beard

Gilbert Arenas, like every blogger in the world, is thinking about the Baron Beard. After noting that Baron Davis told him in March that the Warriors would beat Dallas in the playoffs, Gilbert says thus: I had a beard too this year but that was more of me being too...

This Morning in Bog

Stan Kasten responds, at length, to the charges of being cheap, spurred on by that FoxSports four-part series. Get ready for a summer of such stories. Best quote: ""They'll probably call you cheap bastards," Kasten says he told the Lerners, pre-restructuring. Manny Acta, meantime, is all power-of-positive-thinking, declining to overturn...

Polo Preview

The serious sports writers are, for whatever reason, not writing about polo just yet. I know of at least one serious sports writer, rumored to be on the pass list for Saturday's America's Cup of Polo, who lists "see Journey perform" as his or her primary motivation. But me, I'm...

Polo Hats and Polo Cheese

I've sat through a lot of sports press conferences in my life. Today's polo press conference was the first I've ever attended that offered a cheese plate featuring, among other selections, Cypress Grove's Humboldt Fog (a creamy, delicate, sometimes oozingly drippy California goat cheese centered with a thin layer of...

Polo Excitement Builds in Loudoun County

As everyone knows, the America's Cup of Polo is this weekend in Leesburg, although the Web site is still calling it America's Polo Cup. The rock-show stage is mostly assembled, the audio system for the Journey concert is being tested (it's the same audio system U2 and Aerosmith toured with,...

Meet Your Bayhawks

This afternoon, I asked Matt Ward, one of the stars of the Washington Bayhawks, whether he knew the full-time careers of two of his newest teammates, Nate Bauers and Joe Kestermann. He did not. "I write policy reports," Bauers told him. "I fix cars," Kestermann said. Matt Ward, away from...

Lunch With Bobby Boswell

If you have a blog that relies on droll anecdotes concerning local athletes and you're ever short on material, just head to the Georgetown "Hoya Court" in the campus student center and sit around idly, counting on MLS defender of the year Bobby Boswell to show up randomly at some...

Smash Office Equipment With the Baysox

As you've no doubt heard, the Bowie Baysox are having "Office Space Night" tonight. As the press release says, the team is "offering all area cubicle dwellers a chance to get out of the office and relieve your 'Case of the Mondays'." What this means is there will be clips...

The Season of Lacrosse

This, clearly, is one of the better weeks of the lacrosse calendar. And since I've found I need a guiding sports theme to prevent myself from sitting around and reading nothing but American Idol gossip while on the clock, I've decided the guiding sports theme is lacrosse, until further notice....
