DeShawn's New Tattoo

A few weeks back, after Vince Young appeared shirtless on 60 Minutes, it became a popular pastime to declare the quarterback's back tattoo--which reads "V. YOUNG"--"The Worst Tattoo EVER." Then bloggers took this and ran with it, declaring Stephen Jackson's ink honoring prayer and guns and/or a Kiwi's presumptuous...

Steve Spurrier Dress-Up Doll

Honestly, the Steve Spurrier dress-up doll just confuses me, but I like putting different hats and shoes on him while he remains in nothing but his underwear and then clicking the audio button to hear him talk about pooping around. I would like to see one of these in which...

Oleksiy's English Lessons

So Wiz rookie Oleksiy "Opec" "Big Oily" Pecherov is getting some English tutorials from his teammates. The latest? "I get buckets, son; I get buckets, son," he said about four thousand times after practice today. And his teammates are subtly picking up Eastern European accents, too. "No pass, always shoot...

Vegas's NFL Power Rankings

So in Vegas, if you lose by three in Green Bay, you actually move up four spots in the rankings, since you were supposed to lose by 3.5, and since many other supposedly strong teams did poorly. Vegas, via Las Vegas Sports Consultants, says the Redskins are now 9th best...

Caps Use the Right Bin

The big blue recycling bin in the middle of the Caps' dressing room has a piece of masking tape across its mid-section. "CANS + BOTTLES ONLY!" it reads. Matt Bradley wrote that. "You know, some of the Russians and Swedes have trouble understanding English," joked the winger and team...

The white one has been used the past month. The red one is new. Brent Johnson was asking media members which one should be the home helmet and which should be the away helmet. Johnson decided it should be white on the road and red at home, blatantly contradicting...

Or rather, his lack of a tooth. This photo taken from practice today. You'll recall that Ovechkin lost a front tooth against the Thrashers a couple weeks ago. Here's some feedback at the time, according to the AP: [Ovechkin] seemed to delight in the empty space between his teeth...

Pros vs. Joes at RFK

As Steve Goff has already noted, RFK Stadium is currently tricked out with a basketball court, a boxing ring, 60 yards worth of a football field, great amounts of television equipment and lights, and diagrams for yet more fantastical sports competitions. Never mind that D.C. United is getting ready to...

How Video Gamers Saved Gilbert

Gil's salvation (AP). After that run of inquisitorial Does-Gilbert-Cheat-At-Halo video game stories last week, I'm worried that people might have gotten the wrong impression about Gilbert and his habit. He said he plays 14 hours a week; some people wondered whether that was too much. He admitted to exploiting...
