Today's Top Five: Elijah's Meltdown and Kornheiser's Car


(By Ray Stubblebine - Reuters)


A brief sampling of Internet links

1) Tony Kornheiser's car got stolen. Our careers are linked yet again: my Dodge Caravan got stolen last year. Not sure whether Kornheiser was driving a Caravan. (FishbowlDC)

2) Ovechkin's EA cover shot for the Russian NHL '09, which would go nicely with Gilbert's NBA Live '08 cover and Kevin Duran'ts NCAA '08 March Madness cover (and Ovechkin's own NHL '07 cover, duh). I'm sure the Nats and Redskins will get their turn any day now. (Japers Rink. See also: great Washington Capitals mustaches.)

3) The fairly remarkable Capital Spirit blog has a fairly remarkable entry about hockey, Darkness and Light. (Capital Spirit)

4) The Nats blogosphere reacts to last night's Elijah Dukes incident: the Mottrams say move along, nothing to see, NationalsFanboyLooser isn't sure whetehr Dukes will ever grow up, Nats 320 talks about feelings and God Given Talents, Larry Brown Sports gets stills of the groin pound, and We've Got Heart say the antics spoil the game, exactly the reverse of how I'd phrase it. And then there are the Elijah Dukes facts ("Fact - Home plate is wherever Elijah Dukes stands still for more than two seconds while on a baseball field.") (StetSports.com)

5) This is weeks late, but if you haven't listened to this Tony Limarzi goal call, you simply must. Right now. It'll make your day. Man, is it awesome. (Behind the Badge. See also: United players like to read!)

Wait, there are Nats blogs? Dan - when will we be discussing their minimal page-views and how pathetic they are compared to the KC Royals blogs and such?

Roughly as many Nats blogs as there are TV viewers.

Wow another negative Nats post by Steinberg. You could've posted something when they went 8-1 during their last homestand? Or how with a healthy Ryan Zimmerman, Lastings Milledge, Elijah Dukes and Jesus Flores they have been a tough team to beat? No keep focusing on the negative stuff. Coming from a blogger who has said he liked the Nats.

Is Tino reading to Talon, or vice versa?

No offense Tino

"You could've posted something when they went 8-1 during their last homestand?"

That would be a negative post in my opinion, they need to be tanking.

Dodge CARAVAN? That explains so much.

Dagger:

A Nats player flashes the "Suck It" gesture at the stands, the team is by far the worst team in the area, and you expect people to have positive things to say?

Let me help out by supplying some positive story ideas concerning the Nats:

They're not the worst baseball team ever!

Their TV ratings are better than public access shows!

Remember how their stadium is new? It still is!

It's unlikely that next season will be even worse!
