The Cavalli Video

One rule of journalism goes like this: watching two defensive backs discuss their ridiculous pseudonyms is always more enjoyable than reading about them discuss their ridiculous pseudonyms. Thus, with thanks to Mister Irrelevant (pl)--who obviously understand the YouTube machine a lot better than I--here are the two DBs in action...

Sellers Discusses The Hit

"What did I do now?" Sellers asked when he was surrounded by the media yesterday. "I didn't do anything. The week just started, I haven't had a chance." If you recall, on Sunday, Sellers said he didn't really have a good feel for the hit that leveled Kenoy Kennedy....

Is Gilbert Cheating at Halo?

You thought Bill Belichick was bad? Just wait. I was first alerted to this budding scandal via Reader Eli, who wrote with the tales of Gilbert's Halo 3 adventures. Using one of his three gamer tags (Agent Arenas is one), he'll start a "social doubles" game with a friend,...

The Ol' Capitals Game

I thought I had linked to this earlier, but I hadn't. And since it's still in my head.... The video was posted on the fan land of the Caps' site, and On Frozen Blog has more about the initiative. And speaking of Caps bloggers, writing at FanHouse Eric McErlain explains...

Wizards vs. Pistons

1) You may not have noticed, but some Pistons fans have invaded the comments to tell us just how much better than the Wizards their team is. Well, now their team is trying to outquirk the Wizards as well, with a Rip Hamilton-Billups shooting contest in towels and slippers. Writes...

Fred Smoot is...Johann Cavalli

Preston Keres - TWP The Fred Smoot and Carlos Rogers show began during Smoot's group interview session today, when Rogers was heckling his fellow cornerback and rooting around in his locker. "Man, I can't....What's wrong with you man?" Smoot said. In fact, he got so rattled he attempted to...

Eddie Jordan Beats the Shot Clock

Congress Loves Favre

No, seriously, The House finally got around to passing its Brett Favre Resolution yesterday. By voice vote? Anyhow, about dang time, I say. With the Redskins facing the Most Awesomest Rugged and Leather-Hearted Athlete Ever this week, it's time to review just how awesome he is. (Programming note: my...

Sure this is late, but important Haka news is always relevant. Did you read about how France shined a mirror on the Haka and got the French announcers to speak all passionate like before the French went on to shock the All Blacks in the Rugby World Cup quarters? From...

Packers' LB's Legal Troubles

Been following the travails of Packers LB Nick Barnett? Pretty sordid stuff. Two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct were brought yesterday after Barnett was in some sort of argument outside a club called Wet Bar during the offseason. Then Barnett's lawyer called a news conference to announce that Barnett would...

Vegas's NFL Power Rankings

With my Redskins-loving friends now convinced that 10-6 is on the low end of possible results and that 13-3 is a real possibility, and with Charley Casserly jumping on board with Skins luv, it's time to again check in with Vegas and see where D.C. ranks on its list of...

Redskins Dance Off

"How you doing?" Redskins linebacker Matt Sinclair said to the volunteers as he entered YMCA Alexandria this afternoon. "I look fat," he added, apologetically. This was ironic, seeing as how the Redskins Charitable Foundation was partnering with the United Way and YMCA of Metropolitan Washington to create an interactive...

This Week's Vegas Oddsmakers' Top 25/30

As always, featuring 30 teams and the not-to-be-contested wisdom of Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which tells you which college teams are the best, scoreboard and polls be damned. As mentioned last week, this is turning into a banner season for Vegas to stick by its convictions, never mind results on...

Did Sellers Crush Kennedy?

Uh, yeah, Mike Sellers did crush Kenoy Kennedy. I'm not posting the video so the NFL doesn't hate me, but you can watch it here. Sixty-five thousand people already have. But this fellow does agree with Awful Announcing's use of the word "crush" in the title of the video, and...

B Lloyd Discusses His Benching

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Brandon Lloyd was on the Junkies yesterday for an extended, fairly frank discussion of his benching, and why things don't appear to be working out. There is a massive split in media land about young Mr. Lloyd, a split which I'd argue nicely lines...

Kiwis in Mourning

Apologies for disappearing on the rugby beat. My D.C. United responsibilities made rugby a tough thing to follow. But I got two e-mails that are definitely worth passing along. New Zealand, massive pre-tournament favorites, went down to France in the quarterfinals, fulfilling all the talk of choking Kiwis that...

Eddie Jordan's T-Shirt Gun

CP's gold boots. (By Preston Keres - TWP) The gold pants and gold helmets didn't fare so well against the Giants. Gold, I'm sure you'll agree, is a color best suited for accessorizing rather than carrying an outfit. With the properly substantive backdrop, gold can breathe life into what...

Jarvis vs. Gilbert Mouth Off

You might recall that two weeks ago, Gilbert said that Nick Young, right now, is a better player than Jarvis Hayes. It's a line he repeated again last week at media day. Gil's also said several times that the Wizards finally have a second-team that can put points on the...
