Local Preseason Poll: Additional Pithy Comments

As always, featuring more funnies, which might or might not still apply five days after they were written but which are numerous enough to make your eyes bleed. And apologies for the delay. Not yet in regular season form. And first, how about Towson's upset of Local No. 10 Loyola!?!?!?...

Choo-Choo

Choo-Choo! Last week, Rock Cartwright handed out 123 self-designed t-shirts to teammates, coaches, trainers, and so on. At the time, this was considered high comic relief. Desperate for some sort of blog item that didn't involve the word "hard-fought," I came to Ashburn today hoping Rock had unveiled more...

Clinton Portis is Back

Choo-Choo! And jeez, took him long enough. This is Choo-Choo. Something about him wanting to teach Portis how to dance, and having already taught Moss how to dance, and Randle El how to dance, and Sellers how to dance, and so on. "I taught these boys how to dance,"...

BogBio: Andray Blatche, Not Blooch

Big day for Andray Blatche: his sexual solicitation charges were dropped after he successfully completed John School, and he gets BogBioed. This is one of the top 10 blog-based NBA video interviews in which the subject is playing with his cell phone throughout that you will ever see. Maybe even...

Brandon Lloyd: Sleepy?

Patience, patience, it's been a long time since I've written about B-Lloyd. Grant me one brief entry highlighting three brief points. 1) On Joe Gibbs's Redskins Radio show this week, he revealed that he hopes Lloyd "can become productive for us again." Um, again? 2) On Dan Hellie's NBC Redskins...

Gibbs Dictionary Unveiled

UPDATE: Yeah, so Deuce of Davenport really did do this exact same thing this week. Amazingly similar. Read it here. Wish I'd thought of this. From Jerry's Wheelhouse, the new Gibbs Dictionary, with entries such as A "true Redskin": Aging journeyman skill position player who wouldn't make the roster of...

Jarvis Hayes Hates Us

(By Gary Malerba -- Associated Press) Last month, you might remember, Gilbert Arenas said an unkind thing about Jarvis Hayes, and Jarvis suggested that being in Detroit's a lot better than being in D.C. Well, Jarvis seems to be winning this particular battle, taking more subtle shots at the...

More Mascots Get Bar Mitzvahs

Knightro's party. (Central Florida Future photo) Yesterday I noted briefly the rapidly approaching Bar Mitzvah of Maryland mascot Testudo. Naturally, several e-mailers immediately pointed out that they, too, had been involved in the Bar Mitzvahs of other mascots, but within and without the ACC. In the interest of historical...

Preseason Local Hoops Poll

This wouldn't be the Local Hoops Spectacular Atlantic 11 Preseason Poll if there weren't some hiccups along the way. In this case, a few of our intrepid voters (21, actually) seem to have voted for their Top 10 in reverse order, giving us a Top 11 that may as well...

Brendan Haywood is a Force

Brendan Haywood talks about being a force, his career, the Etan stuff, his New York Yankees wardrobe, and why he likes T.O. I'm an absolutely terrible interviewer, in retrospect. Gosh. But at least watch it for the first five seconds, and the last five seconds....

Testudo's Having a Bar Mitzvah

So I'm at U. of Maryland to speak to a college journalism class about blogging. First, I had to read and write comments on their practice blogs. Nothing makes snappy blogging leap off a computer screen like printing it out and turning it in to your professor, that's for...

Hanlon vs. Jordan

Why do coaches always look so serious? Oh, because the Internets keep calling for their jobs? (Joel Richardson - TWP) For the record, I am never ever ever going to call for anyone's job based on a brief slump, because if that were the only criteria for losing one's...

Please sir, this is not for you. So this is a fun tale of media intrigue, media carping and the effort to deliver raw, unfiltered content without the interference of "a 26-year old reporter that really doesn't know necessarily what's really going on." If you find media covering media...

Eddie Jordan on Gilbert's Health

Last thing from Wiz practice. Eddie Jordan again said that Gilbert was "still not the real Gil." He was asked if it was safe to assume Gilbert would be questionable for Thursday night's game. "That's for trainers to come up with," he said. "I don't know about those type of...

Wiz Dealing With 0-3

Brendan Haywood has chosen to deal with the struggles via the aphorism. "0-3 is bad," he said at one point today," but 0-4 is worse." "0-3 in the NBA isn't the end of the world," he said at another point. "You don't think it's the Titanic, you don't think everything's...

Wiz Rookies Wear Fur

Just one week after I was celebrating the stylistic season preparations of the Wizards, the team is 0-3 and Andray Blatche's mohawk is long gone. "I had to, it just wasn't my style," he said today. "I just wasn't comfortable. Maybe a little further down the line I might...

The Wiz Spell Oleksiy Pecherov

The Wiz game management crew showed a video Saturday night of Wiz players attempting to spell Oleksiy Pecherov. They were playing clips of this in the VC some random morning last week. My issues with this concept are as follows 1) The spellers weren't using the Cyrillic alphabet, so really...

Gilbert's Workout Video

Brendan Haywood, still smiling as always, has grown philosophical about Gilbert's knee. "It's not about the strength of your knee," he said today. "It's about the strength of your mind." Deep. Gilbert visited practice today in street clothes, was subject to a DeShawn Stevenson-prompted discussion about who shoots the ball...

More Redskins T-Shirts

I will always regret not being at Redskins Park last Wednesday, when Rock Cartwright handed out his now-famous homemade present for teammates: "Black T-shirts with the Redskins' emblem on one side and a burgundy-lettered message on the other: "When You Are Winning, Fight Like You Are Losing." As someone well...

Gilbert Responds to the Internet Critics

As mentioned yesterday, some folks were a bit up in arms about Gil's interview with SI.com, and he's already responded on his blog: I didn't realize when you do interviews for articles and stuff and when people read it, especially articles with me, they're ready to nitpick. I didn't know...

The Wiz Are Playing Defense!

Last night I heard the Sports Reporters complaining that this Wiz team will simply never play defense. Not true! Compare the first three games this year (0-3) with the first three games last year (1-2), and you'll see that the defensive trends are encouraging! And those exclamation marks are only...

LaRon's Hair

Clearly we need a better pic, but you get the idea. I must confess a shocking dereliction of duties here: I didn't notice until just yesterday that LaRon Landry has MC Hammer-inspired lines shaved into his left temple. This is interesting for two reasons: it gives Washington without any...

Hail to the Redskins, from Denmark and Korea

And they even have fans from Planet X4-d! A few wags in the Jets press box, between repeated trips to the trough for the Meadowlands's famous pudding, suggested that Sunday's 23-20 overtime thriller was not, perhaps, the game of the day. Nonsense. We got to see seven field goals,...

Shazam Shazam Shazam. * Almost. If Jerrico Cotchery catches that overtime pass--a football that was virtually begging to nestle in his arms--the Jets have a first down, are in field goal range, and very likely win the game. And then I'd have no problem declaring the past fortnight the...
