D.C. Sports Bog: November 18, 2007 - November 24, 2007

This Blog Might Not Come Back

Not the best way to go into Thanksgiving. Jeez. Three months???? Someone call the talking lobster. We'll spend the next few days deciding whether or not to just kill this blog now. UPDATE: Gil has blogged. There's a lot in there, so you'd better read for yourself. The executive...

Vegas's NFL Power Ratings

One of the reasons I post these rankings every week is so we have a way to gauge future Redskins odds. Why? Because after Week Two, a prominent local blogger suggested that the Redskins might be favored in 11 of their final 14 games, and I strongly disagreed. I think...

Jason Campbell Passes Out Turkeys

James Thrash and a turkey. (Don Wright via Redskins.com) Special Bogging Correspondent and WaPo colleague Hamil Harris reports: Washington Redskin Quarterback Jason Campbell got a little more than a handshake and thank you at FedEx Field Tuesday, when the Redskins passed out more than 3,000 turkeys, plus food and...

DeShawn Can Now Feel His Face

Celebratory suggestion. (Joel Richardson - for the Post) Two pieces of breaking DeShawn news. 1) Reader Andy somehow noticed that when DeShawn Stevenson made a three-pointer with 1:07 remaining in the second quarter last night, it was wrongly credited to Antonio Daniels on the official play-by-play. Thus, the box...

Andray Blatche is Keepin' it Real

(Warning: Long. But it's the day before Thanksgiving, you have nothing better to do, and the Wizards are winning again.) (Preview of why you should keep reading this: Brendan Haywood suggested that Blatche was "punking" the media members last night. If you casually read the AP version of this...

The Caps: Things Are Looking Up

I've pledged not to write about the Caps until things start looking up. Luckily, today is that day!!!! Here's the beginning of today's Caps media release: After beginning the season 3-0 and enduring a challenging stretch of games in recent weeks, Washington's 6-13-1 record is not what it intended...

'Dre and Pesh's Rap Group: Dalmations

Dre announces his Ukrainian-tinged musical group on the day he fronts the game program. The D.C. metro area sportswriters club has never been accused of particular hipness. Still, I'm proud to report that at least one scribe thought Dre Blatche's upcoming Vlog, first discussed last night, would be titled...

GilTV is Launched: Everybody Wants to Be Gil

D.C. Pro Sports Report got the videos first, but then they were taken down. Wizznutzz then busted this party wide open. Just know this: GilTV is out on Wednesday, and it's mind-altering. Like, he spends most of his time talking to a giant lobster. I wanted to ask Gil whether...

Today's Top Five: Watching Skins with Nana

1) I could quote funny lines about Norv Turner from this story about a kid, his grandma and the Redskins ("At this point, there were few good plays, only Gus Frerotte's flailing and Norv Turner's fruit-leathery neck turning color from peach to pomegranate") but you should probably just go read...

Operation Gilbert Arenas: Success!

Amanda shows off the prized jersey. (All photos courtesy Julie Walker) I first met the Operation Gilbert Arenas crew last April, as the Wizards' season was falling apart. To recap, three female NBA fans from Iowa had become enamored with Gilbert when he high-fived one of their daughters at...

Redskins-Cowboys Parking Lot Pics

Zee carrying a Cowboys flag, in honor of Crazy Ray. I parked about 1/4 mile from Texas Stadium, about three hours before the game. Granted, the lot only cost $10, which was a nice perk that must have made Mr. Snyder cry inside, but overall it was a miserable...

The NFL Quiz of Mediocrity

This Week's Vegas Oddsmakers' Top 25/30

The debate is on: Missouri/Kansas? West Virginia? Arizona State? No/no, no and no. If LSU wins out, give us LSU-Ohio State please. That's according to this week's Oddsmakers Poll, featuring 30 teams and the not-to-be-contested wisdom of Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which tells you which college teams are the best,...

Today in Hard Fought: "Extremely"

Hard. (John McDonnell - TWP) First, a note. Did you know that if you're a semi-famous Washington Post sports personality (not me), and you've lost both your forms of government-issued identification, you can actually make it through security lines in both Washington D.C. and Dallas using a Washington Post-issued...

Local Hoops Poll Week Two: Virginia Rising

The historical records are a little spotty around Hoops Spectacular Poll HQ, but if I'm not mistaken this is a somewhat historic week for two area schools. UMBC is in the Atlantic 11! James Madison is in the Atlantic 11! Tell me they're not burning couches on those campuses...

Today's Top Five: Gil = Nacho

1) I've yet to note that Gilbert is now Nacho. Or, more precisely, "NACHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Photoshop here. Awful Announcing finds it equally interesting that Gilbert quibbles with the Bill Simmons e-mail, reprinted here last week, about those hecklers in Boston. Trust me, if you want Gilbert to respond to something, just...

Redskins Bonus Quotes: Fight Fight Fight

Redskins record in Dallas since Joe Gibbs retired: 2-13. That's not very good. Wade Phillips: "I thought our team showed a lot of character." Joe Gibbs: "I told our guys that I was proud of them. I felt like they came out with a great attitude and really went...
