D.C. Sports Bog: October 28, 2007 - November 3, 2007

Hopefully, Dan won't mind me posting his fine work from last night's D.C. United-Chicago Fire match. Please watch and enjoy. - Jon DeNunzio...

DCU-United Preview, From Esky

Nick Young's slippers. Because it's been a while....here are Alecko Eskandarian's thoughts on tonight's playoff showdown at RFK Stadium. "Whoever scores the first goal tonight is going to win, for sure," he said. "If Chicago gets a two-goal lead, it's going to be pretty tough. If D.C. scores first,...

Vegas's NFL Power Ratings

Vegas, via Las Vegas Sports Consultants, now says the Redskins have sunk to 16th in the NFL, and ninth in the NFC, which is not, repeat not, playoff position. That also leaves them fourth in the NFC East. With this week's line, it would appear the Redskins will be favored...

Joe Gibbs: Jets > Patriots

We will like you into the ground. Let's review a few facts about the New York Jets. They have the NFL's 29th-ranked defense. They have the NFL's 30th-ranked offense. They're 29th in time of possession. Their offense is 26th in scoring--behind such high-powered teams as 0-8 Miami--and their defense...

Running Up the Blah Blah Blah

I stole this image. Try to stop me, world. Thank Goodness for Bill Belichickmate. If he hadn't gone for that 52nd point like a bloodthirsty warlock seeking the dull-bladed decapitation of all lesser humans, then whatsoever would columnists have written about this week? I continue to see this as...

Meet Eddie Jordan and His Wardrobe

The next installment in our "Meet the Wizards via poorly lit video Q&A sessions" series brings you Eddie Jordan, pre-disastrous loss to the Pacers that already has me ready to give up on the season. This was straight out of the 2006 playbook: questionable defense, thrilling last-second shots, giving up...

College Basketball Begins in Foggy Bottom

With an exhibition against UDC, a taut overtime thriller. Here's one way to describe the outcome, from the UDC Web site: In an exciting pre-season basketball game, the George Washington University Colonials narrowly escaped a major upset tonight when they defeated the University of the District of Columbia Firebirds, 74-71,...

D.C. United's Laser Man

Goodstein in action. (Tony Quinn/WireImage) As Jaime Moreno and Luciano Emilio have rapidly nursed their sprained ankles back to health, they have used compression sleeves and electro-stimulation, Thera-Band resistance devices and Game Ready boot-like devices that deliver "intermittent compression and adjustable cold therapy." They've been instructed to spell out...

Meet Dominic McGuire

This Web site's new sports editor, Jon DeNunzio, envisioned this fancy Wizards preview page, which will eventually include little video biographical Q&A's with every member of the Wizards. Q&A's that will be conducted by me, naturally. We got off to a modest start today, spending a few minutes with Dominic...

Video of Singing D.C. Media Stars

At least one prominent local pro sports team employee has suggested that I am entirely too fond of writing about my fellow sports media members. Which might be the case. So instead of more writing, here's video! Happy?!!? Some highlights from the Mike Wise-sponsored Charity-oke event last week, which was...

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. Unlike the BCS, Vegas is not at all intrigued by the idea of a scrappy ACC team making a last-minute road comeback...

Redskins Tailgaters vs. Ravens Tailgaters

Germans at the Ravens game. I wrote a massive amount of tailgating copy for the Food section in today's paper. You can read it all here and here and see photo galleries of Redskins and Ravens tailgaters. There was also a tailgating video, including shots of the famous Ravens...

Jason Campbell vs. the NFL

Give Jason Campbell credit for this: he seems to be durable. Nearly half the NFL's teams--15 as of this writing--have already started more than one quarterback this season. The NFC East is the only division in which no team has yet switched QBs. Interestingly, 12 of those 17 teams with...

If Gilbert Gets Traded....

I still haven't figured out exactly my response if Gilbert gets traded: Either a self-suspension without pay, or a month-long or possibly season-long blog boycott of Fun Street, or a determination to just fabricate Gilbert stories, or possibly I'll just quit. Is there anyone Gilbert could possibly be traded for...

Carlos Rogers Speaks

Unfortunately I've been asked to be a serious sold-media person today. In the meantime, a few quotes from Carlos Rogers upon departing Redskins Park on crutches (not color-coordinated, like Oleksiy Pecherov's), wearing a nice velour (I think) warm-up suit and a backward Braves hat (another traitor!). Oh, wait, serious reporter....

Pats Fans: You're Boring

Ostrich man. Since attempting to rile up Patriots fans proved so enjoyable yesterday, here's more. Before Sunday's game, I wandered through the various Gillette lots attempting to capture the unbelievable color that would surely accompany the league's best, most dominant team on a beautiful fall afternoon. Instead, I found...

Attempting to Get Fired

Tony Kornheiser on Monday Night Football last night: "If you're a columnist, if you're trying to put together a column, Favre is the guy you want to talk to first, because Favre will sit down and open his chest....All of his frailties are out in the open. There are no...

Wiz Preseason Stylings

Nick Young's slippers. Two days until the Wiz season starts, and the gents are getting excited. "It's like going back to school," Gilbert Arenas was saying today. "You can't sleep that night, you've got all your clothes ready to go. That's just like the first [game]: you want to...

Gilbert's Final Thoughts

Gilbert held his massive drawing today for his Scores for Schools promotion, where he picks one area school for each home game and gives that school $100 per point he scores, and where the Pollins do the same for the 41 road games. There were more than 200 schools...

The Pats Have No Class

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Did the Patriots run up the score? Um, duh. Most Redskins said no, or deflected the question; a few said yes and were ticked off. But they don't have to say what it was; we're all sentient beings, and we can judge for ourselves....

Etan Thomas's Open Letter to Ivan Carter

[UPDATE: Sorry. Link here.] Remember when Mister Irrelevant talked up D.C. sports media beefs last week? No end in sight. Luckily, no reporters seemed to have fought in the Redskins locker room yesterday (official motto: No Fight This Week!), but after Etan Thomas and Ivan Carter posted dueling blog-like items...

Boston Fans Celebrate

AP Photo You won't believe this story, but it's true, and there are many witnesses. I bought three local newspapers in the Providence airport this morning, and took them to the local Dunkin' Donuts. The woman working the register looked at the front of the top paper, turned to...
