D.C. Sports Bog: July 1, 2007 - July 7, 2007

Blogging Tiger

I have to say, when my bosses agreed to let me blog this tournament, they were probably thinking there would be more telling tales of Tiger's to-doings, and fewer 1,600-word essays about Cliff Kresge. But I'm going to make it up to you. The best walker in the world is...

Follow Cliff Kresge

Words have meaning. They're not mere trifles, to be scattered aimlessly about like so many range balls. When you write something, you need to stick behind it. Yesterday, I told you all to join the Cliff Kresge movement, before it became standing room only. I promised you that there would...

Drink The Tiger

I tried to talk my way into a few corporate tents yesterday, and was shut out, which was fine. Luckily, a source close to a corporate tent gave me the official recipe for The Tiger, which for all I know has already been published in The Washington Post. I don't...

Stop Watching Tiger Woods

I figured I should watch Tiger play today, at least for a little bit. I lasted one shot. Littles, Official Caps Beat Writer Tarik El-Bashir and I met Tiger and his 817 best friends between the 9th green and the 10th tee. Great rivers of polo-shirt-wearing humanities flowed toward us....

Charley Hoffman Looks Like a Girl

I caught up with Charley Hoffman's threesome as they were making the turn this morning. Hoffman, you might recall, told me the other day that he's "about a four-year-old at heart," so I figured I should see for myself. Anyhow, he doesn't necessarily act like a four-year-old on the course,...

Greg Owen Hates His Middle Name

I've realized it'll be a lot easier to just sit in the media center and type off transcripts. Like this one, with Greg Owen, who apparently is a professional golfer. Question: "I've heard you're a big fan of movies and I noticed your middle name is Clive and there's a...

Phil Mickelson Loves Condi Rice

Phil Mickelson spent July 4 at the White House. He was asked how this came about. "I don't really know how it all came about, but it sure was fun," he said. "It was a very surreal experience to be on the veranda watching the fireworks with both President Bushes...

Rain at the Golf Course

Chick Hernandez, his Comcast SportsyNet crew and I were waiting outside the scorer's shack to interview Bubba Watson. Chick was going to interview him about the rough, or his drives, or something, and I was going to ask him about his pink head covers. Then Armageddon arrived, in the form...

Bad Breath Night at the Ballpark

I interrupt my mission of sweating while watching men in polo shirts not make facial expressions for four-plus hours to bring you this important news, from the Bowie Baysox. It's so important that I'm gonna go ahead and quote large chunks of the greatest press release ever. It's about Bad...

Baby Advice for Tiger Video

If my normally made-for-television voice doesn't do it for you, below you can hear my approaching-death-bed-status voice. You can also see Jason Gore talk about baby poop. It doesn't get much better than that. I think I'm writing about golf for the rest of the day, so be forewarned....

This Week's (Sort of) Top Five: Daniel Snyder Rules

Many of these are a few days old, but you'll have to excuse me, because I've spent the past few nights hiding under my bed as neighborhood chaps launch all manner of explosive devices into the sky and onto my porch, quite literally. 'Tis a great time to live in...

Wiz Summer League Roster: Much Success!!!

The Wizards announced their summer league roster, and it's a veritable Bog gold mine. And bear in mind that I'll be in Vegas for probably three days, with hopes of eating Russian food with OPEC and Harvey Grant. Here's the roster Shagari Alleyne Brian Chase Mike Hall Jared Homan Lee...

Parenting Advice for Tiger

As someone with a four-month old child, I consider myself slightly more advanced in life than, say, Tiger Woods, who has been a parent a mere two weeks. But I have to admit that I'm not necessarily an expert yet. For example, when it's 9:20 p.m. and the baby's been...

Washington Misses Gooz

But first, some words from Jim Bowden. "It's a serious situation," Bowden said of Jesus Colome. "We pray for his buttocks and his family." The thing is, it actually is a serious situation, and yet it has generated possibly the best quote in sports history. Anyhow, I have to go...

Wiz Second-Round Pick: Disappointed

Finally read a sort of depressing pre-draft Q&A with Wiz second-round draft pick Dominic McGuire, the kid from Fresno State. Among his thoughts, given to the Fresno Bee: "I'm getting great feedback right now and I'm confident that when the draft comes, I will be a first-round draft pick." "I...

Today's (Sort of) Top Five: Gilbert in the Movies

1) I know of at least one person that actually tried to get Gilbert Arenas into a movie project. There are reality TV ideas swirling all about. In the meantime, Rumors and Rants has some movie ideas Gilbert might want to consider. Most of the jokes go way over my...

A Mystic Wedding, and a Mystic Gas Machine

Just another typical Mystics practice this afternoon. You know, some half-court drills, some shooting drills, some defensive drills, a post-game huddle, and a post-game announcement from rookie center Gillian Goring that she was going to get married. Like, today. "She was like I, 'just want to tell you all right...

A Nick Young Dunk

Because of personal slothfulness, I never posted this Nick Young dunk, which has already been viewed by every Wizards fan, but never mind. Actually, I first saw it via The Dude Abides, so thanks to Littles. Also, please remember that he has already predicted he will be in the 2008...
