Caps Visit Springsteen, Embassy

Daniella Nylander, 11 mos. but already walking like a champ, on the Swedish Embassy's rooftop terrace. So the Caps lost again last night. The Caps always lose. Luckily, they also do fun things, like go to the Swedish Embassy, and to the Springsteen show. In fact, the team's Swedish...

Ryan Boschetti vs. Gilbert/Final Boss

Trust me, these kids would destroy Boschetti. So Mike Wise, being the instigator he is, goes up to Skins D-lineman Ryan Boschetti in the locker room on Wednesday. Boschetti is playing online chess at the time. Wise asks him if he plays Halo. "Do I play Halo?" Boschetti asks...

BogBio: Caron is MEAN

Captain Tuff Juice explains why it's spelled T-U-F-F, how he'll follow-up on being an All-Star, and whether he's actually mean. I think this takes us halfway through the roster. By January, we'll be speaking with the ball boys. By February, Wiz PR guys Zack Bolno, Brian Sereno and Daren Jenkins....

Maryland Looked Good, No?

Last night: "Beautiful" on F Street, "ugly" in College Park. So let's see, at the same time Local No. 1 Georgetown was rampaging over Michigan, Local No. 2 Maryland was hosting Northeastern, a team picked to finish, hmmm, eighth in the CAA. The Terps had a slight advantage in...

Portis Costume, Sellers Beard Both Gone

Today's Portis costume. Major style notes today. * Portis costume today: Football player. Running back, it would appear. Where's Choo-Choo? "I'm looking for him," Portis said. "He kept me out of the end zone last week. I'm gonna choke Choo-Choo out when I see him." Are the costumes gone...

Are the Skins the Boys's Biggest Rivals?

(AP/The Washington Post) Judging by this blog post from Dallas, many Boys fans don't think so. Eagles, they say. Which, come to think of it, was reciprocated by the Eagles fans I met in Philly, who said, for them, the Redskins are a distant third after Dallas and the...

Vegas's NFL Power Rankings

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Vegas, via Las Vegas Sports Consultants, now says the Redskins have sunk to 18th in the NFL, which is, er, 11th in the NFC. Last time I checked, the playoffs do not accept 11 NFC teams. Vegas isn't much impressed; hence, the 10.5-point underdog...

This one comes from noted Wizard hater and possible Satan worshiper Bill Simmons, who, in a Miyagi-over-Kreese upset, received an e-mail from a buddy not named J-Bug, Sal or Hench. The e-mail concerned Gilbert Arenas. This tale would merit perhaps a B- in the pantheon of Gilbert Arenas Fan Interaction...

Local Hoops Poll Week One: Rumblings Below

Over the weekend college hoops perhaps got short shrift, or possibly even less shrift than that, what with 8,000 football games going on, the Wizards fighting for their playoff lives in week two of the NBA season and the Caps playing for draft position, so here's a quick summary:...

On Wasting Timeouts
