D.C. Sports Bog: December 30, 2007 - January 5, 2008

Marcus Pollard's Hair

Rocking the 'Hawk with his logo... Dear Seattle Fans, I think you misunderstood me. I absolutely love people who go to football games dressed as apes. I adore people who wear football jerseys over Burger King costumes, or who wear horns on their heads or claws on their shoulders,...

Fans Heckling Sellers

This guy was hanging a Redskin. Sports are so weird. It takes a special kind of wacko to call Mike Sellers a lady. Luckily, Seattle has provided several special kinds of wackos. The Seahawks fans staked out prime territory above the Redskins tunnel and heckled everyone in sight. Ballboys....

Sellers and the 12th Man

Seriously, you'd think that Mike Sellers said all Seattle residents are flannel-wearing coffee-drinking guitar-rock playing job-shirking pot-smoking ruffians. I mean, people out here in the one tailgating area are fired up, ready to go. And why? Because Mike Sellers hinted the crowd noise was fake? That's all it takes?...

The Wind in Seattle

I don't know what it's like inside Qwest Field, but I can tell you what it's like outside. It's windy. Like, gates are falling over, chains are crumpling and the top of my laptop figures to blow off pretty soon. If I was trying to throw a football, it might...

More Smoot Nicknames

Foreshadowing. Gregg Williams was asked on Thursday whether he's seen any additional excitement out of the already marginally excitable Fred Smoot, this being his first trip to the playoffs and all. "Yeah, we have," Williams said. "He has just been even more yakkier than usual. That's pretty hard. Sometimes...

Atlantic 11 Continues to Disintegrate

This is Todd Bozeman. He doesn't look furious. No Local Poll this week. If you're starved for an update, consider this: since last we polled, No. 2 Virginia has lost (by 38), No. 3 VCU has lost (to James Madison), No. 4 George Mason has lost (to Georgia State),...

Shirtless Redskins vs. Shirtless Seahawks

It turns out that prominent players from both the Redskins and Seahawks have posed shirtless. Who knew? Seriously, is it almost Saturday? I mean, disregarding the title of this item, I also resorted today to asking Clinton Portis whether it was true that he vomited before/during both the Bears...

Redskins Insulting Each Other

If it's Thursday....(John McDonnell - TWP) Remember, the theme of the day remains: relaxed. This means that I just left a near-empty locker room with about six NFL superstars shouting out their favorite lines from "Coming to America," and also singing. Good thing the NFL has those harsh videotaping...

Redskins Go Fishing

The attitude at Redskins Park is: relaxed. Another walk-through-like afternoon, following on the heels of yesterday's Walk-Through Wednesday, after which Joe Gibbs had said the following: "They just want to be in pajamas, show up and draw some stuff on the ground," Gibbs said, according to Rick Snider. "We'll...

Seattle Already Raising the Flag

I thought this was the sort of thing that's done in those quaint Midwestern industrial shell cities, the ones with burning rivers and large men wearing sweatpants and mustaches, where the entire city gets behind its sports franchises by naming meat sandwiches after players, holding pep rallies and dressing...

Playoff Mustache Wars Intensify

Via Sportable. Todd Yoder's mustache is gone. The Redskins still have two players with "stache" in their nicknames. But this battle now has two sides. You've heard, I suppose, about Matt Hasselbeck's playoff stache? Sportable has a picture, and a local Post-Intelligencer beat writer explains: [Hasselbeck] strolled through the...

Todd Collins the Oenophile

Now I'm just in awe. (Preston Keres - TWP) As part of our continuing effort to provide every detail on the life and times of Todd Collins, from his shoe size to the toppings he prefers on his baked potatoes to his favorite flavor of ChapStick.... You heard how...

Noted Briefly From the Skins Locker Room

* For the first 10 minutes of the open locker room session, there were 42 media members and assorted hangers-on, and zero professional football players. I took advantage of the downtime to peer around the locker room, at, for example, the notes on dealing with cross-country flights and dehydration. *...

Top 11 D.C. Sports Moments of 2007

Sadly, this is what we'll all remember first from 2007. (By Tracy A. Woodward -- The Washington Post) One year ago tomorrow, I published the Top 11 D.C. Sports Moments of 2006. This year, I had hoped to actually publish my list in 2007, which seems to be the...

The Yoder-Cooley Gift Exchange

Remember that photo I took last week of Chris Cooley delivering his Christmas gift to Redskins Park for fellow tight end Todd Yoder, a gift Cooley admitted he could not identify? Well, I asked Yoder for some help. "It's a bandrum," he told me. "It's half-banjo, half-drum, so we...

DeShawn's New Year's Party

It's late in the day. Perhaps you already have your evening plans. Perhaps you're not on the Internets right now. But if you don't, and if you are, and if you haven't yet heard all those radio ads, here's the invite for the DeShawn Stevenson-Andray Blatche-Crystal City NBA Players...

A Short History of Brian Billick's Job Security

(Jonathan Newton - TWP). Dec. 10: "I'm going to be back," he said when addressing the future of the team. Dec. 12: Balt Sun: Any uncertainty surrounding Billick's job status was cleared up recently when he was notified by owner Steve Bisciotti that he would return for a 10th...

Bruce Boudreau's Daughter's an Ice Girl?

I believe this is Kasey. Sorry to break away from the Redskins for a minute, but good goalie, Bruce Boudreau's daughter is an ice girl? Check this out, from the Ottawa Sun: Former Toronto Maple Leaf and now the Caps coach, Bruce Boudreau had the pleasure of working the...

Redskins Go in Style

This season is quickly becoming special. (Via Comcast SportsNet) People keep saying how the Redskins are the hottest teams in the NFC, which I suppose is true. Not only is their four-game win streak the NFC's best; their 4-1 mark over the past five games is also tops in...

Redskins Mix Sacred, Profane

Moses, on the other hand, is a big Tony Romo fan. Well that was quite a win. Quite a day, all around. The second-most important day of the 2007 sports calendar, on the second-to-last day of the year. I'll admit, I enjoy being offered free beers and foodstuffs as...

Rock Chalk Mo' Hawk

From the side. There are a lot of reasons we've gotten to this point of the NFL season, the point in which I'm unable to compile my "Top 11 Best D.C.-Related Bloggish Sports Moments of 2007" list, because it's unclear whether the best moment has happened yet. Here are...

Skins Giving Many Points

Believes his team to be 29-point dogs today. (Preston Keres -TWP) So that line for today's game is still Skins -9 or -9.5 or so. Which is amazing. I asked Ken White, the Chief Operating Officer of Las Vegas Sports Consultants (official sports odds advisory body to the D.C....
