D.C. Sports Bog: July 6, 2008 - July 12, 2008

Chris Cooley Podcast, Dee Brown's Blog and Snoop's Stache

Thank you, papa Internet, and fellow bloggers. While I continue to enjoy the legendary Western New York July weather, here are some must-read links I'd like to share. None are about the Nats' TV ratings. Well, ok, a few are. * Chris Cooley was the latest guest on Dan...

Nats Fans vs. The Post's Coverage, Part II

Whew. That was fun. Since so many commenters asked for direct responses to direct questions, I'm gonna just start another entry. Which is a bit too insular and self-referential for my tastes, but I'm out of town to visit my parents and something's gotta fill this space. So please...

Karl Alzner's Fake Mustache

Alzner, at developmental camp, minus his fake 'stache. (By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) (Following through on this morning's realization that the Caps are comparatively under-served by The Post. We had three staffers there today. Progress. Much more from this Alzner conversation in days to come.) The Washington Capitals...

Nats Fans vs. The Post's Coverage

One sure rule for newspaper folks is never to engage your anonymous Internet critics, and never to appear defensive. I'm about to break both rules, spectacularly. (Because this is long, I'd encourage you to scroll down, at which point you'll find my conclusion: Caps fans have the greatest claim...

Morning Look: Gil Bowing in Filipino Malls

If you were worried about a media blackout during Gilbert's Asian tour, worry no longer. Via Gilbertology comes word of Sandro's Site, which has posted literally more than 500 photos of Gilbert in Manila. It's an amazing collection that will pass at least 20 minutes of your time, and...

Chief Zee Loses. Man the Barricades

(2004 file photo by John McDonnell - TWP) This being the Battle of the Beltway Mascots, things pretty much ended in the only way they could: with disputed election results, claims of foul play and some doubt as to the winner's mandate. In the role of Al Gore, meet...

Gilbert at the Breakfast Buffet in China

(Image courtesy Irving Liimatta) After previous fan-composed tales of meeting Gilbert Arenas while he ate by himself at P.F. Chang's in Tysons Corner, and meeting Caron Butler coming out of a movie theater next to the T.G.I. Friday's in Tysons, today's food-based Wizards fan story comes courtesy of 29-year...

Honoring Benny Olsen: The Video

I'll agree with the commenter below who said enough with the Nats bashing. And, in truth, the Nationals and their attendance and their ratings have nothing to do with D.C. United and its attendance and its ratings. So I'll stop with that. But with today's news that United's Ben Olsen...

D.C. United vs. Nats TV Ratings

(2007 file photo by Jonathan Newton.) UPDATE: Those of you who accused me of making false comparisons and fanning false flames are correct. Apologies. D.C. United has nothing to do with the Nats, and their ratings are very hard--maybe impossible--to compare, with different game times, attendance issues, home dates,...

Nats: Last in the League, Last in TV Ratings

(Opening Day photo by Jonathan Newton - TWP) Well this ballpark-christening season has gone about as smoothly for Washington baseball as rush hour at Metro Center. To recap: the big offseason signing got caught up in the steroid scandal, the exciting new outfielders both suffered serious injuries, the two...

D.C. Sports Media Approval Ratings: Russ Thaler

Perhaps no member of the D.C. Sports Media works as closely with the sports staff of the Washington Post as Russ Thaler, the host of Comcast SportsNet's Washington Post Live. (The only other candidates that come to mind would be WPL producer Andy Siegel, WPL booker Manda Gross and...

Best of Head Covers, Part II

Wrapping up a thrilling week of golfers talking about grinding and hitting a few putts and missing opportunities, let's take one more look at some interesting head cover art. (First part here.) Would that every club in every bag was decorated in a comical manner. That would yield, like,...

Morning Look: The End of the Pink Shirt

The losing pink shirt. When I think back on the 2008 AT&T National, the first and second and fourth things I'll remember will be the Steve Marino gallery of enthusiastic and flat-out fun fans. I don't care if a few people didn't appreciate their behavior; you could hear their...
