D.C. Sports Bog: December 23, 2007 - December 29, 2007

The AP's AU Voter: John Feinstein

Worth a vote? (AP Photo) Remember when I posted the results of this week's Atlantic 11 Poll? And I pointed out that American got one vote in the AP poll, which I said was "beyond absurd for a 7-5 team that lost to Fairfield at home?" And then unstoppable...

Another Jessica Mask

Well I'll be darned. There's another Jessica mask in town, this one specifically tailored to the actual town in question. Ours. Washington, D.C., I mean. Man, I need to find a way to write more clearly. Anyhow, this mask, like that of RuinRomo's, is Packers-originated, coming from Milwaukee World,...

Local Poll in Haiku

Basho: Great poet, but never wrote about UMBC. Longtime Local Poll voter and frequent Pith MVP Bill Fitzgerald submitted his entire ballot in Haiku form this week. Since this was an unusually depraved act, it demanded some sort of response. So I'll publish his entire ballot here. The rest...

Wiz Rookie Rumble

Well. Um. This looks like fun. I believe most NBA rookie teammates/roommates set up fake boxing promos for the Internets. PS: Why wasn't I invited on the train ride Gilbert, DeShawn, Nick and friends took to NYC? I'm sure that was pretty normal. Wonder if they sat in the quiet...

A RuinRomo Tale

Reason 463F why the Internets rule: One day in December the wife of a Packers fan from San Diego-via-Milwaukee can come up with this idea for jinxing a Dallas quarterback during his upcoming road games in Carolina and Washington by creating a PDF of the QB's girlfriend's noggin for...

Manute Bol in Iowa

It's funny, when you get an e-mail with a subject line reading "Manute Bol Takes on the Candidates in Iowa," you figure it's gonna contain nothing but hilarity and photos of Manute Bol wearing an Abraham Lincoln hat and stumping with Ron Paul through some snowy yard to talk...

A Young Caron

Caron's "My Amazing Journey" tale on NBA.com is, to be fair, actually amazing. Like, when Dwight Howard was asked about the biggest obstacle he had to overcome on the way to the League, he said " I have overcome a lot of obstacles to make it in the NBA."...

Local Hoops Poll Week Seven

I tried to cancel this week's Poll. Really, I wanted all our hard-working voters to have a week off, not to be forced, as one voter was, to compose 11 local college basketball haikus. But then, as you might recall, Maryland lost to American. At home. Convincingly. Gack. When...

The Pineapple Finds a Home

Smile, Redskins fans, smile. The biggest news out of the Redskins locker room this afternoon? You're staring at it, baby. Remember the pineapple from early Monday morning? Like one of those heroic lost puppies, dropped on a random street corner, it made its way home. That piece of fruit...

Big Mike's Lunch Pail Award

Winning >>>>>>> losing. I didn't know about Big Mike's Lunch Pail Award. All I saw was the Saved by the Bell lunch box, with Smoot and Springs's heads pasted onto the SBTB hunks. I asked Springs what it all meant. "Man, that's so nasty," he said, and no more....

Wade Phillips and Greg Ellis on Playing the Starters

Over the next five days, the Cowboys will be asked approximately 9 million different questions about how long, how hard, and how seriously they will play this weekend. We just had our crack at Wade Phillips and Greg Ellis. Their responses. Phillips Any closer to deciding who'll play? No,...

Top Seeds and Week 17 and the Bandwagon

The Skins feel the bandwagon large non-trademarked non-Kornheiser-conceived vehicle filling up with the fair-weather folks. They know who you are people. "It seems like everyone's jumping on the bandwagon, but that's cool, we'll take 'em," Chris Samuels said. "Our true fans, we love them for sticking with us through the...

Redskins Park, 3:59 a.m.

From right, Dan Pearson, Joe Gibbs, Frank Doran, the pineapple. "You guys are nuts," Joe Gibbs was saying to the 30 or so Redskins fans gathered outside Redskins Park at 3:59 a.m. "You guys are crazy." And yet a few minutes later, there was the Hall of Fame coach,...
