At least, that's what I think this human-sized critter was saying to me in a mechanical voice when I made it past customs. It's also possible he was saying "Eat Dirt Foreigner!" Or "Just to Your Left Up Ahead is the Starbucks Cart, Right Next to the Jeep Store!"...

D.C. Athletes Are Still Blogging

More Arenas Portis mash-ups: CP-signed Gil Zeros. Noted briefly: * So Colt Brennan has a training camp blog? You remember who the previous training camp blogger was, right? Yeah. Tough example.

Giant Racing Teddy Parties on 18th Street

All photos courtesy the Washington Nationals. As I once discovered at a Prince George's County Safeway, virtually no image in the world is more pleasing to the heart than one of a Giant Racing President Mascot in a non-baseball, real-world situation, particularly when that President is earnestly trying to...

Jason Fabini's Night in the Kitchen

By Preston Keres - TWP. Since Jason Taylor arrived, it's been easy sport for writers to suggest that the dancing and dashing end somehow transcends the Platonic ideal of the lineman; that he's nobility and his fellow lineman are serfs, that he's The Palm and his fellow linemen are...

Breaking: DeShawn Wins Beard Bet

By Preston Keres - TWP. DeShawn Stevenson is a stubborn man. He made it clear to me many times that there was not a realistic scenario in which he would lose his much-discussed beard bet with Drew Gooden. I fully expected both men to eventually meet their maker while...
