D.C. Sports Bog: December 9, 2007 - December 15, 2007

BogBio: Oleksiy Pecherov

Jon DeNunzio of washingtonpost.com here ... today, we have another one of Dan's BogBios, all of which were unfairly overlooked by Golden Globes nominators. Enjoy....

Today's Top Five: Bobby is a Cowboy

Not sure how I feel about this. 1) Bobby Boswell in a cowboy hat? Too soon, too soon. 2) The Supreme Court Justices as NBA head coaches. No Eddie Jordan. He's executive branch. 3) I was actually pretty disappointed with the Caps' mullet night. My first preference would have...

Maryland's Loss to Ohio

Go to Mister Irrelevant for more. A few notes on Maryland's home loss to Ohio University of Ohio, OH. 1) These are the teams our Local 3rd-7th ranked teams have lost to in recent days: Hampton, East Carolina, Ohio, Central Connecticut State, and VMI, respectively. Wow. 2) Greivis Vasquez's...

Breaking News: New Eastern Motors Star

This is pure good news. Ready for this? After a three-year pursuit, Eastern Motors has finally landed.... CHRIS COOLEY ....as its new pitchman. As if life weren't always good enough. "My guys kept telling him of our interest," Easterns CEO Robert Bassam told me. "He procrastinated for a little...

Paul Lo Duca's in the Report

Getty Images. "He's a winner. He's always won. It's what he does....That's what this game is about. It's not about statistics, this isn't fantasy baseball, it's about winning baseball games." Etc. Although I suppose there's no point in pointing fingers on a nasty day like this. And I guess...

Darius Songaila Is: Borat

Totally fake image courtesy A. Strindberg. So remember that unicorn bit with Songaila from the other day? Well, believe it or not, that wasn't even the best part of our interview, which is rendered below as No. 9 in our series of Bog Bios. I actually feared that this...

Bye to Bobby Boswell

Even though I decided I resent Bobby Boswell for starting a blog that unveiled the hilarious off-the-field exploits of D.C. United, thereby completing undercutting my soccer coverage, I'm still sorry to see him go. He had what was easily the second-best athlete blog in D.C. and possibly the country,...

Todd Collins Sniffs Footballs

Whilst I was obsessing over Smack yesterday, the rest of the reporters were hot on the trail of just what Todd Collins has been sniffing. And, of course, Joe Gibbs was smoking crack somewhere. Ok, the last sentence is not true, but combined with the news that Paul Lo...

Smack: You've Never Tasted Anything Like This

The Expedition. I was feeling a bit peaked after a tough day at Redskins Park this afternoon. Just run-down, really. Out of sorts. Luckily, I had enough time to stop off at Dulles Town Center and grab a half-dozen of Fred Smoot's SMACK Energy Bar ("Snack on a Smack!),...

CP's Bad Shrimp

A wise reader e-mailed me the following wise questions about the radio reports of Portis vomiting during the Bears game because of bad pre-game fried shrimp: What??? Was he hanging out with tailgaters? Do players often/ever sample the fixins on their way in the stadium? Were they Bears fans?...

Lastings's Watch and Lo Duca's Girlfriend

As mentioned yesterday, the Nats press conference wasn't exactly a laff riot. Sample question: "Paul, I spoke to Todd Jones, who you played with in Florida, and he talked about how great you were in your game-calling. Could you talk about your plan to help this young pitching staff, that's...

Vegas's NFL Power Ratings

It's been a while, but this would be a good time to revisit Las Vegas Sports Consultants' NFL Power Ratings. Why? The Redskins are 1-6 vs. Vegas's Top 15 teams. The Redskins are 5-1vs. Vegas's Bottom 15 teams. Their final three opponents are ranked 10th, 9th and 3rd. Unless the...

Nick Young's Nickname

As I've mentioned several times, Nick Young's nicknames are both varied and yet unsticky. Bean Burrito? The City? Skywalker? Young Hollywood? Little Zero? Which is it? The Wizards have their own, undisclosed name for NY, but it has yet to be disclosed to the public. In the meantime, we...

Lo Duca and Milledge Are Introduced

Paul Lo Duca and Lastings Milledge were introduced to the D.C. media this afternoon. The fun bits, which apparently seemed fun to me and no one else, will have to wait till later. For now, here are the key points. * Jim Bowden left no doubt that Lo Duca is...

Local Hoops Poll Week Five: Georgetown Wins

Apologies for the delay. No real excuse. But there were no Local games last night, so nothing changed. There is at least unanimity at the top, with Georgetown first on 65 of 65 ballots. After that? What's the opposite of unanimity? Virginia Tech received votes for 4th place, 10th...

Another Big Nighthawks Signing

First international superstar Tamir Goodman. Then streetball icon Tyron "Alimoe/The Black Widow." Plus a high-socked head coach named Lawrence Moten. And now? Hold up, you should guess.....I'll wait..... The Premier Basketball League and the Maryland Nighthawks announced today that, for the first time in history, a Thai basketball player will...

Fred Smoot's Energy Bar

I'll take 12 crates, please. Eternal thanks and praise are due to Mister Irrelevant, which unveiled the previously unknown (to me) Web site of Fred Smoot's Energy Bar company, titled, of course, Smack. I could never sum up the bar's qualities as well as this: Have you ever had...

Redskins Add Another SI Cover

The most important part of the Jason Fife practice squad signing? D.C. now has another SI Cover Boy. Yes, practice squad players count. Yes, the headline on this item is misleading. Yes, Oregon's uniforms still make me want to vomit. Fife was the cover boy on one of the...

No new names in the Sun today, but still, two more steroid stories. * David Segui says he expects to be named in the Mitchell report, that he refused several Mitchell-led inquiries for assistance because he didn't want to be a snitch, and that he used both steroids and...

Redskins Jousting

You see, I really wasn't joking when I wrote the other day about the sheer normalcy of those guys dressed like gorillas at the Redskins game. Some sort of standard definition of normal human behavior, or at least normal 21st century D.C.-area public-space human behavior, is temporarily suspended once you...

The Greatest Joe Gibbs Answer Ever

The Miracle Man. (Preston Keres - TWP) It's nothing flashy, just a pithy rendition of the Joe Gibbs standards. It concerns Todd Collins, and it comes from Redskins Radio today. Larry Michael started the line of inquiry by labeling Collins's performance on Thursday night "miraculous," which was clearly a...

12 More Zany Wizards Facts

We're all living in the District of Caron, people. The Wizards have won 10 of their last 15. That's just one game behind what Detroit and Orlando have done over their past 15, and better than every other team in the East besides Boston. And that's mostly without Gil....

DeShawn Posterizes Jefferson

(AP Photo) So many post-game notes, this will have to be Part I. 1) Bullets Forever beat me to this by a few minutes, but that DeShawn Stevenson dunk last night was pretty disgusting. Or putrid. Or nasty-filthy. Or sickening. Or nauseating. Or whatever "bad-in-a-good-way" word is currently en...

More Gilbert Stand-Up

The Barbosa. I'm attempting to write a story about GilTV, and so I briefly chatted with Gilbert about his comedic influences, and he told me that he practices in the locker room. "I play like I'm a stand-up comedian sometimes in front of the team," he said. "I'll come...

GW's Hobbs Gets Heated

Did not need to be led away from reporters. (AP photo) Seems like a good time was had by all in Blacksburg last night, where the Local No. 9 Hokies crushed Local No. 10 GW, 68-36. From The Post's game story, about Karl Hobbs's post-game press conference: Afterward, Hobbs...
