D.C. Sports Bog: February 3, 2008 - February 9, 2008

Terps Go Gold Again

Thank heavens they beat Holy Cross. (AP Photo) On Aug. 25, 2004, the Maryland Terrapins wore their black road alternate jerseys during a preseason scrimmage against Angelico Biella. After being tied with the Italian club inside the final 30 seconds, Maryland lost that game by two points, and that...

Hoos Say: Virginia Virginia Virginia

UVa Uva Uva. In recent days, some posters over at The Sabre's Virginia football message board have gotten irritated at the frequency of banner ads that have something to do with Virginia Tech. The explanation they've been given is that they write about Virginia Tech so much that Google...

Mike Wise's Brush With Death

Photo ruthlessly ripped from the GW Hatchet. I certainly don't want to make light of Mike Wise's brush with death, but I will say that the only person I know who could turn a brush with death into an appearance on the cover of the GW Hatchet is Mike...

CP on America's Next Top Model

I've been trying to find the footage of Clinton Portis's appearance on "America's Next Top Model" for more than a year, but to be honest, I wasn't trying all that hard. Finally, last night, someone e-mailed me the clip of Portis distracting his model as she tries to concentrate on...

Monk Campaign Disperses

File campaign poster. Mitt Romney suspended his campaign today, and many of those who worked on his behalf will now find other causes to promote, other candidates to back. A different campaign ended last weekend, but the forces behind that campaign will retire from the advocacy business. The Art...

Gilbert's New Favorite Drink

Completely running out of Gilbert photos. Honestly, with his regular 3,500-word soul-baring missives on his own blog (He's bowled a 277? He thinks Nick Young is top-two in this rookie class?), you'd think Gilbert would run out of material at some point, but Men's Journal got him for a...

Coke's Wizards Ad Explained

G-Wiz and Carville, pre-kiss. Yesterday I posted about the way some obsessive Wiz fans and I noticed that the audio and video of Coke's Super Bowl ad featuring the Wizards did not match up. Investigative journalism commenced. (If you just want the answer, scroll to the bottom.) From the...

Spags Says No, and I Defend Snyder

Man, I'm really hitting rock bottom with this post. (AP Photo) Wow, defending Daniel Snyder and Gary Williams in the same day. Tremendous. Next up: the Lerners, West Virginia fans and Brandon Lloyd. Oh wait.... Anyhow, Spags and his hair-cutting wife have bowed out, just as Sally Jenkins recommended,...

Gary Gets 600

Things at Maryland are looking up. Blah. Look, I'll still be as quick as anyone to make a sweat joke, or an American University joke, but 600 is a dang lot of wins. And there probably aren't too many guys who can take a team with three straight home...

Super Bowl Fashion

(UPDATE: To any angry wrestling fans, at the time I met the legend known as Eddie Venom, I was talking on the phone to my wife, whom I had left alone with my baby daughter during Super Bowl week. WTEM's Andy Pollin, whom I was with, stopped the mohawk man...

Leigh Steinberg's Super Bowl Party

Wind, solar and wind. It occurs to me that I never actually wrote about going to Leigh Steinberg's Super Bowl on Saturday afternoon, which was one of the more surreal three hours in my life. The vague rundown. All times MST. 2 pm: Leigh Steinberg's 22nd Annual Super Bowl...

Gilbert and Buckhantz: a Super Bowl Mystery

Taking photojournalism to a different level. So I get an e-mail on Monday from a trusty reader asking me to check out the Super Bowl ad for Coca-Cola featuring the Wizards, G-Wiz, James Carville and Bill Frist. I completely ignored all the commercials on Sunday night, as I was...

Joe Theismann Hits a New Low

Man, one year Theismann is doing Monday Night Football, the next year he's starring in staged Super Bowl Internet interviews purporting to be about the game that turn into commercials for a new snack food that's part-pretzel, part-cracker. Quite a rapid fall. Sort of like writing an A1 Washington...

Doug Williams Gets Angry

Lacking any context or the ability to understand the audio at the beginning of this clip, we're left to judge between a swearing Doug Williams challenging his opponents to put him on YouTube, and a weasel-voiced dude taunting Williams in downtown Phoenix and then describing the events that preceded the...

Steve Spagnuolo's Wife

This is a Star-Ledger photo by Tim Farrell, taken without permission, so please click on this story to reward the paper. When the talk turned to Steve Spagnuolo at our pre-Super-Bowl dinner, featuring the sports staff of the Newark Star-Ledger plus two WaPo interlopers, the talk quickly turned instead...

Local Poll Week 12: Stupor Tuesday

On this of all days, we're kindly reminded that one of the reasons democracy doesn't work is because people are stupid. I don't know why I run this poll; I should just decide which 11 teams are best and then tell you. Maybe Jamie Paquette and Bill Fitzgerald will...

The Super Bowl Tailgate

Method Man and Super Giant. Three hours before kickoff, Super Giant--a New York fan in storm trooper helmet--and Method Man--a blinged-out Pats fan with grill and jeweled "Brady to Moss" broach--were attempting to pose for dueling fan photos outside University of Phoenix Stadium. A friend stood nearby, offering advice...
