D.C. Sports Bog: May 11, 2008 - May 17, 2008

Preakness Infield Beer Wars

Last year's Preakness Day Infield featured the mass-market debut of Port-a-Racin', the artful attempt to sprint over the top of a row of porta-potties while dodging flying debris cheerfully volunteered by the surrounding masses. A year later, the game had changed: now, the sprinting was banished to history's dustbin, as...

Nats Inner Harbor Invasion Aftermath

(Courtesy Brotman Winter Fried) You want a priceless reaction from an owner upon being asked to respond to a chicken/eagle/freak mascot and some Giant Racing President Heads passing out brochures and carrying confrontational signs just blocks from the stadium where his team plays? How about this one, from the...

The World's Most Ridiculous Hoops Game

(By John McDonnell - TWP) Summer in D.C. Sports. So boring. Nothing happening. Wizards gone. Redskins mostly gone. Russian superstars gone. Ukrainian soundbite machines gone. Soccer team struggling. Baseball team struggling. Tiger's months away. Nothing to blog about. What we need a real crazy burst of nonsense to look...

Giant President Heads Invade Inner Harbor

My only regret about today's scheduled Inner Harbor Invasion by Screech, the Giant Racing Presidents and the Nat Pack--in which the invaders promised to hand out Nats promotional material to unsuspecting Baltimoreans--was the scheduled time of 11:30-12:30. I figure the chances of Giant Abe being beheaded by a giant...

N. Chad vs. Kornheiser and Feinstein

As part of Tony's farewell tour, Norman Chad discussed the TK brand on Dan Levy's extremely compelling On the DL podcast yesterday. And Norman did the same thing I did, sucking up to the glorious legacy of Kornheiser, except he did so in opposite land. He prefaced all of...

LoDuca: Anti-Softball Cheers

(By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) I had a brief conversation with a veteran baseball writer yesterday, in which we both agreed on the following: that veteran baseball writers would not approve of softball-style dugout cheers emanating from Major League dugouts, that non-veteran sports bloggers would approve of such...

TK: The Bandwagon and the Blogs

Quick notes gathered while looking for a lost wallet in a car with a dead battery.... First off, for those who weren't here at the time, or who were here and can't get enough, or who grew up in Western New York as Bills fans and still remember Super Bowl...

Kornheiser Takes Buyout

Dang. From his radio show a few minutes ago: "All I ever wanted to be was a newspaper writer," he said, which is likely not something that anyone under the age of 30 will ever say again. "This other stuff is great, but I don't care about it," he continued....

Washington Softball Girls Shirts

Ripped from the comments. I'll take 12, please. Go here to buy. Actually, I'm grateful to the Mostly Full Nelson (who has since been demoted). Last night, I had no problem at all watching Cavs-Celtics in its entirety, merely to root against LeBron James and to hope against hope...

Glorious Celebratory Photos

Taking a break from vacation to post this glorious news: I was just granted full access to the Post's photo library for bloggy purposes. This might not mean much to you, but trust me, the sensation is something like putting an entire package of Orbit Bubble Mint into your...

Cowherd Turns the Internet Off

I accidentally infected my ears with a shot of Cowherd yesterday, and this was literally the first proposition that I stumbled upon when trying to find some playful sports blather: Uncle Colin's gonna step in here. I'm a semi-public figure who, more than anybody in the American media today,...

Mets Act Like Little Boys

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) So let me get this straight. Baseball's much-bandied-about "Code" allows for the strategic placement of baseball bats around blow-up dolls, but not for players to cheer on the bench? Because the business of pulling on tight pants and bright socks and belly-accentuating tops and...

Cleveland Still Loves DeShawn

Still in their heads. (By Preston Keres - TWP) You know how the home crowd in the Verizon Center is often too quiet? And how the desperate scoreboard operators thus fill their screen with images sure to provoke hate, such as the Cowboys logo or pictures of Duke players?...

Redskins Park Flooded

Last night we had water trickling in through our living room window. It wasn't that great, but a few towels took care of most of the problem. Well, the Redskins need more than a few towels. The video on the frontpage of Redskins.com tells the story a lot better than...
