D.C. Sports Bog: October 21, 2007 - October 27, 2007

More Skins Underdog Numbers

Since the dominant storyline of the week seems to be "Will the Skins cover?" rather than "Do they have any shot whatsoever of winning?" here are some more "history of Skins underdog" notes, courtesy of official Bog sponsor Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which helps the majority of Nevada casinos set...

Sports Media Karaoke Report

Mike Wise, dancing. Yeah, I know some of you would prefer I not produce yet more navel-gazing media reports. But look at it this way: at least this isn't about Brandon Lloyd. I was going to score all the contestants in last night's Sports Media Charity-oke event from 0-10...

Shuler's Latest Failure

So many blog posts of local interest in the past few days that I've neglected to mention because of loafing. So here's a non-timely list. Heath Shuler: Blanked in a football game against the Capitol Police (Deadspin) Gilbert Arenas: Crushes Brendan Haywood again, on tape (FanHouse) James Davis: Clemson RB...

Chris Wilson = Boobie

Not sure if this is Chris Wilson or Boobie. (By Katherine Frey - TWP) The first time I spoke with Redskins defensive end Chris Wilson, he was getting ready to demonstrate his dance steps to some kids at a charity event. "Boobie's gonna be the best dancer here," he...

Vegas's NFL Power Ratings, and Skins as Dogs

Redskins lose to Green Bay (but cover) and move up in the Vegas rankings. Redskins beat Arizona (but don't cover) and move down in the Vegas rankings. Vegas, via Las Vegas Sports Consultants, says the Redskins are now 12th best in the league, and the sixth-strongest NFC team, behind Dallas,...

B-Lloyd: Everybody Loafs

Running out of Brandon Lloyd photos.... Mister Irrelevant has expertly chronicled five D.C. sports media dust-ups of the past month, but the B-Lloyd vs. media fight appears to be ongoing. As told to WRC's Dan Hellie in a long interview that can be seen here: "I think people come...

Blog Show Gets Sponsored

If you had Easterns Automotive Group in the "what local company will step up and sponsor Blog Show" pool, I'm sorry to say you've lost. Blog Show, our weekly televised t-shirt-wearing look at the week in blogs, finally has a sponsor, and if you haven't heard, I'm proud to report...

Wizard Photo Gallery

With the season nearly upon us, Wizards fans, unprompted, have taken to sending me all manner of photos concerning their favorite team. And so, let me present what I hope is the first of a series of homages to D.C.'s strangest fan base. This is Curtis Morales, who goes to...

Snyder and Cruise: Still Together?

(By Virginia Sherwood -- NBC Universal Via Reuters) This is several days late, but concerning the confusing relationship between Daniel Snyder and Tom Cruise, well, I'm still confused. Last week, Fox News reported that the couple was splitsville, due to political differences: Sources tell me that the deal Cruise...

The Redskins Don't Know the Rules

An official called Rock Cartwright "dummy." (Toni L. Sandys - TWP) This has been pointed out in other venues, but the Redskins seem to be having some confusion with the NFL Rulebook this week. (In happier news, listen to new Chris Paul song "Hey Scrappy Redskins." As euphemisms for...

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. And now, we enter the portion of the season where we compare Vegas's wisdom with the actual BCS standings, which are supposed...

Etan Thomas: "I Feel Blessed"

" A few hours ago, RealGM posted an extensive post-surgery interview with Etan Thomas conducted by longtime Etan confidant Dave Zirin. He says his sternum needs two months to heal before he can resume any normal activities, but that he's "on the road to recovery" and is "feeling good."...

B-Lloyd's Writing Workshop

Journal writing. I thought about skipping today's official Brandon Lloyd event, a seminar on journal writing for the second graders of McNair Elementary in Herndon. Lloyd has, perhaps, not been a major factor in Washington's 4-2 start, and some readers have suggested 'Enough already with this Lloyd stuff.' I...

Final Sports Media All-Stars Karaoke Alert

Since Charity-oke event organizer Mike Wise is hawking his event to Washington Post Live, the former Washington Post Radio, Redskins Radio and various other media outlets over the next few days, might as well give him one more bit of glory on the Bog. To repeat, Thursday from 6-10 at...

Shaved Curly R's and Skins Pumpkin Heads

Curly R Pumpkin Helmet Head Man. The guy with the pumpkin helmet head must have been seen all over FedEx Field yesterday, sitting as he was directly behind one end zone, bright orange noggin bearing Washington's famed Curly R logo. Naturally, I plowed my way through the well-lubricated masses...

Carlos Rogers vs. Neil Rackers

Rackers, the star of yesterday's game. As FanHouse pointed out, Neil Rackers had previously tangled with the Redskins, but I particularly enjoyed yesterday's Carlos Rogers vs. Rackers face-off at the end of the first half. Rogers seemed unconcerned after the game. (See video of the fight here, via Mister...

Chris Samuels and the Alleged Spitter

" Chris Samuels went on at least three or four rants about his tantrum after an extra point yesterday. Samuels went nuts on the field, was restrained by teammates, screamed at officials and then tossed his helmet. After the game, he claimed Cardinals DL Antonio Smith spit in his...

Gilbert Stole Nick Young's Car

The Dominic McGuire and Nick Young video blog might have a so-so name ("The Domi.Nick Affect?"), but the results speak for themselves. In this week's episode, we learn that the rookies stole Gilbert's toaster oven to make pop tarts, the rookies need their mothers to come East and buy them...

His answers run 700 pages. (By David Eulitt -- The Kansas City Star) Below, you were asked to witness the concise oratorical stylings of Joe Gibbs, which, by Week 14 will allow Redskins PR to cue up six or seven sound bites and just press play randomly during post-game...

Brandon Lloyd vs. La Canfora

Skins-Cardinals Bonus Quotes

(By Toni L. Sandys) * First, where is your wide receiver going? Dunno, but Brandon Lloyd's exit from the locker room came at 4:17. The game ended at 4:04. Not bad, but against the Lions he was out of the locker room by 4:13. Maybe the drama got to...
