D.C. Sports Bog: May 13, 2007 - May 19, 2007

Watch Blog Show IX

As always, I'd recommend you tune in sometime around 6 p.m. tonight to watch the glory that is your Blog Show. In tonight's installment, Mister Irrelevant's Jamie Mottram and I will shamelessly steal news stories from the usual suspects, along with such made-for-primetime blogs as The Jaunt, Every Day Should...

The Secret to the Nats' Success (Rhymes with Anger Mans)

[Actually, we're not 100 percent sure on the pronunciation here, so possibly "Anger Mans" is incorrect.] Anyhow, another day, another win for the Nats. That's six out of seven, as the long climb back to a division title continues. I attempted to be a real reporter and figure out what...

The Nats on American Idol

Remember earlier today, when I asked Robert Fick for his take on the sporting issues of the day? Well, I also asked about last night's "American Idol" results, figuring he would not be a fan. "I just think it's the way she looks," he said of Melinda and her untimely...

Brian Billick Does Commencement

Camille Powell just reminded me that Brian Billick is giving a commencement address at Johns Hopkins today. You know, just so those kiddies understand that there are people in the world more genius than they. He's actually the speaker at the The Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and...

Robert Fick on the Sporting Issues of the Day

Day game today. The regular beat writers were all sitting in the dugout talking baseball this morning. Suckers. Me, I went into the locker room after Robert Fick, who showed up at the park wearing a Randy Moss Oakland Raiders jersey. I wanted to know why he chose Moss, and...

Melinda Doolittle is the Spurs

That was the first thing that popped into my head when Melinda was inexplicably booted last night: she's the Spurs. There's no reason not to like her. She smiles, she seems friendly enough, she clearly has the best combination of talent and polish, there's no reason America shouldn't have embraced...

This Morning in Bog

The worst thing about this Jerome Williams injury is he has great promise as a blog subject, what with his Hawaiian music thing. Meanwhile, John Patterson played catch for the first time and was encouraged, but it's not like they really need him. This pitching staff is unbeatable. Twenty-one runs...

Hoyas Grow Playoff Beards

The Georgetown lacrosse team has been to the NCAA quarterfinals six straight years. The Hoyas have been to the quarters 10 of the last 11 years. It's an incredible run, and yet it's yielded only one Final Four appearance. "A semi-curse," is how senior defender Jerry Lambe described the quarterfinal...

Nats Launch New Batting Songs

This, sadly, is a woefully incomplete story. The final chapter will be told. Tomorrow, maybe. Anyhow, when I was at Monday's Nats game, I heard some rumblings of several Nats choosing new songs for their plate appearances. In fact, Robert Fick was spotted, CD in hand, in some back tunnel....

Al Saunders, Journey and John Walsh

Also known as, a much shorter version of what I wrote about polo. In case you've forgotten, here is what I wrote about polo, featuring Al Saunders, Journey and John Walsh. And here is the video version, courtesy of Adam Littlefield, Comcast SportsyNet producer extraordinaire. Upon rewatching this, I believe...

Ryan Wagner Gets Creamed

You know how during Wizards season I kept wondering whether the team was winning because the locker room was fun, or whether the locker room was fun because the team was winning? Well, I have no idea what the answer is. All's I know is, on the heels of a...

Catch Dmitri Young for $100

The lead-up to a baseball game is so long. There are hours and hours to pass. That allows the following two things to happen on a night like last night. 1) Mike Wise can discover that he and Nats starter Jerome Williams went to rival high schools in Hawaii. Williams's...

This Morning in Bog

Redskins.com posts a Sean Taylor video interview that's pretty vanilla, but he does say he likes the draft picks and isn't unhappy with his contract and that the team is like "a big ol' family." The team's story is here. Our paper writes about the interview, as does the Washington...

A Near No-Knitter

I spent the first inning of Monday's near no-hitter wandering through the 500 section and hanging out with the arts-and-crafts set, who had descended with their yarn and their needles and their crochet hooks for Stitch N' Pitch night. I wasn't sure whether this would be interesting or not. The...

Gilbert Contestants

Remember Gil's Video Challenge, in which contestants aged 25 or younger had to make videos showcasing their special talents in no longer than 30 seconds? Well, the Top 10 have been revealed, and no, Sanjaya is not in this Top 10. I guess these 10 all get signed Arenas jerseys...

J-Lo's Tattoos and Daughters

Jen Lopez, the wife of the Nats' Felipe, was helping promote last night's Stitch N' Pitch event, which will be discussed in this space later today. Anyhow, as part of this promotion, Jen was appearing on Washington Post Live, a television show on Comcast SportsyNet with which I used to...

Art Monk for Hall of Fame: The Song

When one of the representatives from The DirtBags, my favorite D.C. sports team-themed rock band, e-mailed me their musical entreaty to put Art Monk in the Hall of Fame, I was initially reluctant, based on the oft-repeated lyric that drives the song: "Peter King is a Queen." But today's Redskins...

Redskins: Second to Naan

Remember all that fussing last year about Carlos Rogers and Sean Taylor and Marcus Washington and their pre-snap dancing? Well, that was not choreography. This is choreography. More seriously, this also speaks to the perpetual rift in the mind of the Joe Sportsfan, or even Arjun Sportsfan; the confident, free-spirited,...

Our paper decides to submarine Jason Bergmann's no-hitter attempt. First Svrluga drops a blog item full of subtle import. Then I, seeing the item, turn on the TV between the 7th and 8th, just before McCann's at-bat. Plus, a high-ranking WaPo editor sends out a message to the sports department:...

Al Saunders Loves Polo

When I arrived at the America's Cup of Polo Saturday in Leesburg, there were women in sun dresses, men smoking cigars, a massive sound stage for the Journey show and U.S. Park Police performing some sort of choreographed horse demonstration to the music of James Bond and "Mission: Impossible." The...

Not a headline that I expected to come out of the America's Cup of Polo, but strange things happened during that magical afternoon in Leesburg. For a really comprehensive review of all the strange things that went on, check The Dude Abides. The part where we interviewed TV superstars and...

A Message From God. Shammgod.

Subhed: A travesty of a mockery of a Shamm. And many regards if you get the reference. In this God (Shammgod)-obsessed city of ours, any blog post about the man in question is worth highlighting, especially when it comes from the Bog-friendly Name of the Year blog. The face of...

Bobby Boswell Wears Fred on Chest

On his blog last week, between saluting his mother (and frequent Bog contributor Susan) and philosophizing about the MLS salary structure, BobbyBoswell.com noted the following: I am currently preparing for the Chili Cook-Off tomorrow, in which I have to wear a shirt that says "They call me the preacher!" on...

Nats Win, Stands Empty, Blogger Remains

I still regret not heading for RFK last fall to watch that bizarre midnight game with the Phillies. Once the newspaper presses have shut down for the night, the reign of the bloggers begins. Or the rain of bloggers. Or something. The sun always shines in Kastenville. Anyhow, we had...

This Morning in Bog

Clinton Portis guarantees that the Redskins will make the NFC Championship game, on BET, tomorrow night. The most important thing about the Nats' weekend sweep? They no longer have the worst record in baseball. (By a half-game, over the Royals, but still.) The next-best thing? Nats fans chanting "overrated" at...
