D.C. Sports Bog: September 23, 2007 - September 29, 2007

Gilbert Wants to Buy the Bonds Ball

For more than 30 minutes this morning, Gilbert Arenas discussed all the important issues of the day: his knee, the Wizards' unchanged frontcourt, the budding friendship between Brendan Haywood and Etan Thomas, their team's chances in the East, his hopes to create an online poll about whether he will make...

Real World: Wiz Rookie House

So now Dominic McGuire and Nick Young are both living in the house Gilbert owns that his girlfriend and kids used to live in. Gilbert called over there the other night when it wa raining and said they could come over and play video games if they wanted. But they...

Following Gilbert on his Bike

So at 10:49, Gilbert emerged from the VC on his very red bike, wearing large headphones and no helmet and hugging a few girls on the east side of 7th Street. Then it was off, down the sidewalks of Chinatown, through red lights, into the middle of the street and...

Gil's Media Tour

In NYC tomorrow for EA stuff. I was hoping he'd do a presser that would be simulcast on all four networks, plus PBC, CNN and the Food Channel. Instead, I'm hearing he'll be on Jim Rome's radio show, ESPN's First Take and BET's 106 & Park....

Portis Smacks Down B-Mitch

Discussing the media. (John McDonnell - TWP) The thing about Portis's much-discussed appearance on the WTEM's John Thompson Show yesterday is that he ranted and raved a bit, bashed the media, said he doesn't read the papers, accused the media of thriving on controversy, and all the rest. But...

Duke Dog Decked in Mascot Furfight

It's obviously been an impressive few months for the fuzzy fraternity, from the Oregon Duck-Houston Cougar tailwag to Mr. Met dancing the Bhangra at an Indian wedding to the KC Wolf's starring role last weekend. Good stuff, all. But now, the giant-headed madness has come to our oversized neck of...

Daughtry Does Stover

Continuing my pattern of writing about Baltimore teams when I can't think of what else to do..... From the e-mail abyss: Baltimore's FM Talk 1057 WHFS Morning Radio Program "The Kirk and Mark Show" has been inspired by the foot of Baltimore Ravens Kicker Matt Stover. They have penned the...

A Redskin Gets Stuffed

(John McDonnell - TWP) (This entry brought to you by Comcast SportsyNet's Washington Post Live, which will include a guest spot with Kedric Golston today, 5-6 pm, check local listings.) Redskins defensive tackle Kedric Golston is a big dude: 6-foot-4, about 315 pounds. "You think he's just going to...

The Mike Vick Poortrait

You know you've made it as a blogger when you get a mass e-mail that goes something like this: Keeping with recent times and recent controversies, societal reflective artist KELLY WAN has decided to "honor" Mr Vick with painting this special portrait. You may be asking yourself why is...

Joe Gibbs and the Spike

Is it unfair to still rant about this? Maybe. If Betts had scored on third down would anybody even remember the first-down spike? Probably not. Should an offense be able to score from the one-yard line with three chances? Sure. Have I ever called an NFL play with time running...

Aikman Gets Heckled in D.C.

(AP Photo) Did you see the Reliable Source item about Troy Aikman being heckled during his weekend in D.C.? If not, please read. Aikman is addressing his lifelong struggle with migraines at a doctors conference sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline. One doc in the audience raised his hand with a personal...

Gilbert: More Than 300 Pairs of Shoes

A long conversation with ESPN's Chris Broussard, and that's really the only thing that caught my eye. Also, I suppose, he appears to be brimming with confidence. "Yeah, at the end of the day, when we were going into the playoffs, there were a lot of teams that -- I'd...

Final FedEx Lot Thoughts

Jay Wills, Mike Hall and Josh Shunk, monks all. Let's face it, love them or hate them, the DTC (see below) are a bit crass. Let's step back and visit with some equally earnest but considerably less crass Redskins fans: The Redskin Monks. If you've been to a Redskins...

With the Dead Tree Crew

The Mayor, the bat, the bullhorn, the medallion. So, the Dead Tree Crew? Where to begin. Well, in journalism school, they teach you to lead with your best material. Which, in this case, would be the following quote from The Mayor of FedEx Field, who helps lead one of...

This Week's Vegas Oddsmakers' Top 25

All those people complaining about Clemson's low ranking last week? Vegas is listening. Vegas loves you. The Tigers soared from 25th to 17th. Vegas will also comp you to the buffet, if you post enough comments below. In the grand tradition of Vegas, it is slow to discard its favorites...

Wiz Re-Sign Roger Mason

Hope this wasn't already in our paper, but the Wiz have re-signed Roger Mason, one of the--no, check that, the--friendliest professional athlete I have ever covered, in any sport. Also, a close friend and repartee partner of Brendan Haywood's, which bodes well for Bog purposes. If I'm counting correctly, that...

Daniel Snyder's Media Criticism

Just watched the big Daniel Snyder-George Michael Comcast SportsyNet interview. About eight minutes, by my rough TiVo count. Highlights. 1) George Michael: "They're saying you want to control the media by having your own Internet." Built by Al Gore, no doubt. 2) George Michael: "How many times in your...

Fenty on a Soccer Stadium

(By Lateef Mangum -- Courtesy D.C. Mayor's Office) The pre-game parking lot at FedEx Field is perhaps not best suited to political discussions regarding land planning, so forgive me the tameness and generality of this brief conversation with D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty about the future of a soccer-specific stadium...

Sellers and Superman

Mike Sellers looked so sad after the game. Someone would ask him whether he wanted the ball at the goal-line, and he would look frown slightly, and look sad, and sigh, and say yeah sure he would love to have the ball but he doesn't call the plays. "You...

LaVar Still Doesn't Like Gibbs

(By Joel Richardson - TWP). LaVar was at the game yesterday, doing some analytics for Comcast SportsyNet and being mobbed by fans and being taken care of by Eastern Motors boss Robert Bassam. In fact, due to CSN's might and an odd quirk of fate, LaVar was being mobbed...

Redskins and Time Management

I grant you that I've never called an NFL game, and that everything seems easier from the press box, but I still don't understand why you spike the ball on first-and-goal from the 1 with nearly a minute left. First-and-goal is like Friday at 5 pm: everything is possible. Second-and-goal...

Redskins Play "Imagine"

The DirtBags, asking you to imagine a better Monday morning. I think I came up with 10 reasons why yesterday was just a complete abomination, a forfeiture of justice and the natural order of things in favor of depression incarnate, Ryan Seacrest's career on grass. The Redskins lost to...
