D.C. Sports Bog: September 16, 2007 - September 22, 2007

Eagles Fans, in Video Form

Courtesy of the wizardry of Comcast SportsNet's Adam Littlefield, I bring you an Internet-only BogTV, starring Eagles fans as themselves....

Goodbye to RFK?

Fans who evidently decided to say goodbye to RFK by not leaving. I thought Tom Boswell's column about saying goodbye to RFK yesterday was really sweet, an homage to a stadium that has been so much a part of our D.C. sports-obsessed lives, a stadium whose imperfections and blackened...

Gilbert Arenas Crushes Haywood

Yo Gil, tank this. (By John McDonnell - TWP) The USA Today's Roscoe Nance is a nice guy, but golly, if I got the quote he got from Gilbert regarding Brendan, you can bet your Eddie Jordan Mini Bobblehead it would have been the very first sentence of my...

Troy Perkins Loses His Job

(By Kevin Clark - TWP) Troy Perkins knew what was going on in the mortgage industry, of course. His mom's spent 25 years in the business, and he'd spent two years working part-time in the industry himself, starting off as an entry-level loan officer and moving his way into...

Real World: Fort Washington Update

The hair that was. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Toward the beginning of the season, I mentioned how D.C. United rookies Bryan Arguez, Kasali Yinka Casal, Shawn Crowe, Guy-Roland Kpene and Kiki Willis were sharing a house out in Fort Washington. Kasali and Kiki, of course, are no longer...

Big Oily at the Ukrainian Festival

I forgot to link to this before: the Wiz.dot.com/Jumoke Davis video piece of Oleksiy Pecherov going to the Washington Ukranian Festival. As he put it, "they make a great festival." He was accompanied by dad Vladimir, mom Olga, brother Sasha and soup borscht. Also, he dances. Also, he talks about...

Dead Baseball Players Emulate Belichick

The inevitable post-scandal spin coming from the media last week was that maybe Belichick's cheating wasn't so bad, or at least, so unusual. The Post ran a big story on other historical shenanigans, although I'm not sure that sending blurry videos is quite the same thing as what the...

At least we'll still have DS. From the Wash Times this AM: Washington Nationals television announcer Bob Carpenter has been told by the club his contract will not be extended when it expires after the season, sources with knowledge of the situation said yesterday.' Barry is more measured in...

Mike Sellers on Andre Carter

Twitch. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Mike Sellers apparently has a few standard lines he's cooked up regarding Andre Carter's physique, and he was breaking 'em all out yesterday. "His mom fed him creatine when he was a baby," Sellers told multiple reporters. "I'm just being honest. I mean,...

Taylor's Hair, and Throwback Uni Pics

Taken from TV, courtesy of Murf. (Throwback uni pics below.) Sean Taylor was walking around today with the hair still picked out. As previously mentioned, it's possibly the greatest look in the history of organized tackle football. Since Taylor and I have a great relationship--I once asked him whether...

Jason Campbell on McNabb's Comments

So McNabb's comments--white quarterbacks "don't get criticized as much as we do, they don't"--have set off the predictable round of blah blah blah. White columnists no like-y. Gregg Doyel: "I'm calling it stupid. I'm calling it intellectually lazy. And I'm calling it cowardly." Steve Serby: "Rush Limbaugh was wrong when...

Redskins Parking Spaces

When the team wins, the Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams players of the week get extra special parking spots near the front of the facility, with an extra special little sign and their number painted on...

Randy Thomas's Shirt

I may have lost the blogging battle, since JLC blogged his remarks instantly, but I'm going to say I won the war because I got the photo of his t-shirt. On the back, it says "Love Brandi & Teri & Cameron." Regarding the near future and his replacements, Thomas...

Caron Singing, Gil Blogging

NBA video freak Elie Seckbach has decided that September would be an appropriate time to post some leftover Gil-Caron stuff from All-Star weekend. Caron sings, Gilbert pledges to take over the players' party in 2008, Ivan Carter's voice can be heard, and Gilbert is heard asking "Where's my blogger?" Gilbert,...

Vegas NFL Power Rankings (Luv Skins)

Which are produced by Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the group that advises Nevada sports book and is basically a corporate sponsor of the Bog by this point?

Step-dad Ty Pearson and "Mama P" Rhonnel Hearn. I knew Clinton Portis's mom, Rhonnel Hearn, is famous for cooking for his teammates, past and present. I knew that she was something of a team mom, that her son's teammates call her "Mama P" or "Mama Portis." But I wanted...

Gil's Shoes and the Bandwagon

Blogs you should read while I sit in the RFK media room waiting for D.C. United's coach..... Gilbert unveils the roll-out schedule for his new kicks, spelled "GilIIZero," but pronounced "Gil 20." Which is about as confusing as a shoe name will ever get. I'm a trend setter, people. I...

What Eagles Fans Looked Like

These were taken before the game. Not sure what they looked like after. I can tell you, however, that the post-game parking lot smelled very much like the decay of your typical rotted-out beer-soaked crumbling college off-campus apartment, minus such luxuries as a Magic Tree air freshener.That was an awful...

More Eagles Madness

ESPN.com's Tailgate Reporter

So this ESPN.com guy is traveling around the country doing a tailgating video from each MNF site. I'm sitting in the Commissioner of Tailgating's RV, borrowing his juice, and I had to watch this ESPN.com guy interview the commissioner in faux-serious style. There's really nothing like watching Internet video magic...

Not the only such sticker on the premises. My fear is that this rampant Dallas hatred ultimately demeans the hater more than the hatee. Two teams are set to play each other on Monday Night Football, and what should be a joyous anticipation of large men bashing into each...
