Today's Top 5: Cordero's Hat and Ovie's Curse

Enjoy this photo; might ne'er see it again. (Jonathan Newton - TWP)

1) I was thinking about going to Spring Training but chose the CAA Tournament instead. Had I gone to Spring Training, you can bet I'd already have written 1,400 words about the brim of Chad Cordero's cap. It's all curvy-like. Blasphemy. Luckily, Nationals Enquirer is on this story, hard. And straight. And seriously, has no one asked him about this yet? Sheinin? Zuckerman? Anyone?

I'm told by the Nats that the commenters are 100 percent correct, and this curved brim is solely due to it being a spring training special. Hearty apologies to Sheinin, ZuckZuck, the Nationals, Chad Cordero, and his brim.

2) Romovechkin? So says Japers Rink, which notes that both Ovechkin's stats and his team's fortunes have declined somewhat dramatically since the arrival of his lady friend in the States. While Japers(b) rejects the curse theory, a commenter suggests Katja headson-sticks for the Caps rivals, which could really end poorly.

3) Here's a blogger-writer-Redskins fan type defending Daniel "Mr." Snyder. No, seriously. "I'd also like it if fans stopped treating Snyder like a pariah and remember that if it weren't for all his money, he'd be just like any one of us, [complaining] about how if only he were in charge, he'd do things differently, win the team a Super Bowl and be adored by the fans and media." "Just like any of us?" Hmm, not sure.

4) For balance, here's a blogger-writer type, writing on the same day (Tuesday, which makes the word "today" in the title of this post marginally misleading), who is slightly less impressed by the good Mr. While I approve of all Snyder photoshopping, I have to say that I'm not convinced he uttered the word "continuity" more than twice during the Gibbs retirement presser. I need to find that tape. The site, by the way, is Today's ACC Headlines, and I'd encourage you to read about the graffiti war between UNC and N.C. State.

5) Not a blog, but praise be MTV for simultaneously holding Real World casting calls in Durham and College Park this week. Throw in Blacksburg and Charlottesville, and we might really have something here. Thanks to Sitruc for the tip.
