D.C. Sports Bog: December 2, 2007 - December 8, 2007

Giant Presidents and Gil's Constipation

This is Sway the Irishman, the winner of last year's Nick Rimando hunt. He was the game last night, with a mohawk. Much of this was written while in a car with Mike Wise, on our way to FedEx Field last night for the beginning of Washington's glorious march...

The Gorillas Are Here

One of these apes was beating his chest at this point. The thing about going to an NFL stadium is, you sort of forfeit your normal 21st century tendency to react to general weirdness. Like, if you're wandering around H Street at 5 o'clock on a brisk winter Thursday...

Dominic McGuire's Wiz Impersonations

I just lost an extremely long post. Ha ha ha ha ha. Ha. I love you, Internets. Well, just watch Domi.Nick's latest, complete with McGuire's Team Wiz impersonations. He does a very good Antonio Daniels....

Watch Nick Young Dance, Again

Here's the Nick Young Bog Bio. To see the full collection of past Bog Bios, go here. In today's installment, Nick compares himself to Michael Jordan, discusses his gift for the dunk, is made fun of by Dominic McGuire and, at the end, most valuably, demonstrates some dance moves. Fast...

Geico Caveman and Caron

My e-mail and phone machine blew up last night with the tragic (for me) news that a Geico Caveman had showed up at the Wizards game, coupled with the tragic (for me) news that I had not shown up for that Wizards game. Luckily, the well-manicured and tireless folks from...

Welcome L.Millz

Manny D and L Millz. I have to say, Barry Svrluga's indomitable Nashville blogging has intimidated me away from touching the Nats this week, but there are a few things that need to be said concerning the new additions. 1) Who benefits? UmpBump said it best: Jim Bowden, you...

Colin Cowherd Changes His Mind on Taylor

Look, some have suggested that it's better to simply ignore ESPN's Colin Cowherd and not egg him on by responding to his bombast, which might be true. Some have also suggested that attempting to tit-for-tat the guy does nothing but debase the tatter, or the titter, or whatever, which...

Tamir Goodman is Back

Tamir Goodman and Lawrence Moten. Say this for the Maryland NightHawks: no local team can touch their press conferences. Last year, you might remember, the NightHawks introduced 7-foot-9 Chinese sensation Sun Ming Ming at an event featuring Chinese food from Meiwah and guest appearances from Redskins receiver James Thrash...

Mason Holds Dress Like a Pimp Night

Ok, not exactly. George Mason is actually holding its "Doc Nix look-a-like contest" tonight, in which crowd members at the Hampton-Patriots game are asked to "dress up like the stylish Mason pep band director." "Stylish" being sports information code for "pimped out." The winner gets to shadow Doc Nix...

S. Dot's Easterns Shoot

I never managed to get any of these photos up last week. I need to emphasize that Easterns never reached out to me about writing anything, that I got in touch with them and asked for the photos and everything. They were definitely not trying to wring any publicity out...

Eight Outstanding Wizards Facts

Dominic McGuire and Nick Young were taping their newest Domi.Nick vlog today. I was allowed inside the taping. At one point, apropos of nothing, Young busted out with this: "Man, this is a crazy team." And McGuire followed up with this: "I love this team, though." In 11 words,...

Pech vs. Dave Hopla

Hopla would beat Gilbert in a shooting contest. For reals. (Katherine Frey - TWP) Dave Hopla, as you might recall, is the Wizards' shooting savant, an assistant coach who can apparently shoot the basketball better than any human, and who once made 14 million consecutive free throws. Oleksiy Pecherov,...

More Theismann on Kornheiser

The headline on this massive Joe Theismann profile/Q&A from Washingtonian is "Theismann Sounds Off." Not sure if I'd agree; mostly it's pretty much as flavorful as cheerios over white toast >strike>vanilla. As far as I'm concerned, the best quote comes right at the beginning: "I talk too much," Theismann...

Cashing in on Taylor, Part II

Here's the closing paragraph of my item about the online sales of Sean Taylor commemorative towels yesterday: Bear in mind, the guy is getting buried today. Which means, I guess, that mementos from his funeral won't be on eBay until tonight. "Ha ha, Dan," I thought to myself. "Nice...

Joe Gibbs vs. the NFC East

(John McDonnell - TWP) After my item yesterday that noted Joe Gibbs's Redskins were the only NFC East team below .500 since his return, hundreds of readers a few readers one reader said I should also look at his inter-divisional record. Done. It's not pretty. Here are the NFC...

Local Hoops Poll Week Four: BB&Terrible

That BB&T thing sure capped off a great Sunday. The D.C.-area teams went 0-3, with Mason falling to an East Carolina side whose only previous wins came against Limestone and North Carolina Wesleyan. Limestone? Off the top of my head, Georgetown, Old Dominion, Morgan State, Hampton and possibly Virginia...

Vegas Says USC-Oklahoma Are Better

Vegas still hates you. (AP) Whew. As of last week, you might remember, Vegas (via Las Vegas Sports Consultants) wanted to see a West Virginia-Ohio State national championship game. WVU, obviously, is no longer in that position. But the thing I love about Vegas is, every piece of information...

Today is Abe Pollin Day

Adrian Fenty said so. Cake for everyone! From the official press release [the proclamation has too many whereas clauses to be feasibly excerpted]: Mayor Adrian M. Fenty proclaimed December 3, 2007 "Abe Pollin Day" in the District of Columbia in honor of Abe Pollin's 84th birthday and all of his...

Inside the Football Coaches' Poll

At least he's the best at compiling humorous football rankings. Still waiting for Las Vegas Sports Consultants' final Top 30 rankings of the season.....very, very, very curiously waiting. In the meantime, Post college football scribe Adam Kilgore just threw himself, literally, into the nitty gritty of the Coaches' Poll....

Cashing in on Taylor

If you went to a Redskins game and got a free souvenir towel with Sean Taylor's number yesterday, what, you might be wondering, would be the properly American thing to do? Sell the towel on eBay, of course. Here's one towel-ticket combo going for more than $50. Here's a...

Parking Lot Taylor Tributes

Let this be said up front: it was a strangely somber vibe in the parking lot, and lots of people were way quieter than usual, and the Dead Tree Crew hooligans even decided not to harass Bills fans, but still, it was an NFL football game. Which is why...

Redskins-Bills Q&A

What are some of the things that have happened in the last, say, two minutes of Redskins games this year? Let's see, we've had two Redskins game-winning field goals (Dolphins, Jets), one Bad Guys game-winning field goal (Bills), one Bad Guys missed game-winning field goal at the whistle (Cardinals),...
