D.C. Sports Bog: November 2, 2008 - November 8, 2008

Moss's Hammy, Rogers's Hands, Broken Brains

With the weekday part of the bye week coming to a close, let me flash back to a couple of quotes from Tuesday. Santana Moss was asked about his hamstring repeatedly, about how it compares to his past hamstring troubles and about whether he'll be ok after the bye. He...

Ryan Clark, Sean Taylor Tributes and the NFL

Goodell believes the NFL is all about collective action, which is surprising given his individual flair. (By David Duprey - AP) Last week, several blogs offered their opinions on former Redskins safety and close Sean Taylor friend Ryan Clark being docked $5,000 by the NFL for honoring Taylor by...

More Morning Look: Fedorov Has a Fan

Courtesy Washington Capitals. If you were a big Caps fan and were especially fond of Sergei Fedorov, one thing you might have done to celebrate his becoming the NHL's all-time leading Russian goal scorer would be to pump your fist. Possibly you could have stood up off your coach...

Morning Look: CP Reps Obama

(Photo via DCFab!) D.C. athletes continued to be well represented in the election coverage this week, from this amazing Obama-esque image of Oleksiy Pecherov to a convoluted Joe Gibbs connection with the president-elect, from Gilbert Arenas snapping up commemorative newspapers from around the country to Fred Smoot calling Leigh...

College Basketball Poll Seeks Voters

Last year's Atlantic 11 champs. (Mitchell Layton photo via GUHoyas.com.) If you're a longtime reader around these parts, you might remember that, for two winters running, about five or six dozen Bog readers and local media members have collaborated on the Atlantic 11, a weekly ranking of the Top...

D.C. United Vanity, Wizards Statesmanship

This trend of sports teams' producing humorous videos of player interviews for fan events that then wind up on YouTube is pretty great for vacationing bloggers. D.C. United players spend time in front of the mirror, via Behind the Badge. Wizards players discussing which of them would make the best...

Bissinger, Big Daddy Drew and the Bog

With the Redskins bye week, I'm taking off to New York for the next couple days, but in an act of shameless self-promotion, I wanted to note that I'll be part of tonight's Varsity Letters sports reading series at Happy Ending Lounge on the Lower East Side. My fellow panelists...

Morning Look: Hip Hip in Detroit

It's been a bad couple of weeks for the Hip Hip Hoorayride. A win over Detroit was followed by "Win on Three!," a massive blip on the season-ending DVD retrospective. Making matters worse, the inevitable return to Hipness against the Steelers was preempted by some unfortunate on-the-field circumstances. So...

Vegas: Still Loves the Skins

Steelers rise to top of Vegas's rankings on the Skins' shoulders. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP) The Redskins' loss to Pittsburgh was, by a pretty significant margin, the team's biggest deviation from Vegas's expectations this season. In several games, the Redskins have flirted with the spread into the final...

About Those Burgundy on Burgundy Uniforms

The O-Line, taking a burgundy spin for change. (By John McDonnell- TWP) I gather that some fans were put off by the burgundy-on-burgundy uniform scheme the Redskins debuted Monday night. But if there's one phrase you'll associate with this week 20 years from now, it's not going to be...

Steelers Fans, StubHub, Michael Wilbon and You

(By John McDonnell - TWP) (Last time.) Let's take one more crack at this issue, because a lot of people have written about this elsewhere, and I got a bit more info. * First off, concerning StubHub. The Redskins are one of six NFL franchises with promotional agreements with...

Updates on Burned Cars and Redskins Rules

(By Charles Agel - AP file photo) Quick updates on lingering Redskins stories: * Heath Shuler wins re-election to Congress. * The Redskins Rule lives on, with Obama's win making the RR either 17 of the last 18, or 18 of the last 18, depending on your definition. *...

Morning Look: A Haywood Halloween

I tried to figure out how I could make this item about the election, but then I came to this realization: You don't care what I think about politics. You, like me, are going to stop watching CNN and MSNBC and Fox News as of tonight and will instead...

A Final Dose of Political Football

(By Haraz N. Ghanbari - AP) I wrote last night about some of the political displays around about FedEx Field, but I obviously missed many more. The strangest? The giant "O" Obama banner hanging from the upper deck, right next to the placard honoring George Marshall, who had to...

Redskins on the Fan Turnout: "Disappointed"

By the end of this morning's open locker room, every Redskins player was being asked about the Pittsburgh fan invasion. You know, the one that prompted Michael Wilbon to write this: The Steelers left town with a victory, with Roethlisberger also smiling and not seriously hurt, and with the...

Steelers Fans Force Redskins Into Silent Count

(By John McDonnell - TWP) So about those terrible towels. Lots of 'em, right? Loud, right? "We actually went silent count one or two times out there," Chris Samuels said. "I mean, Jason called it so we had to basically obey it." (Much, much more on this issue here,...

Morning Look: FedEx Cars Go Up in Smoke

Your night was probably bad, but have a bit of perspective: some people's night was probably worse. Like, here's one scenario that would be worse: leaving work early, getting caught in eyebrow-tearing traffic, watching your team get smashed on its much-anticipated Monday Night football stage, watching your stadium fill...

Post-Game Quotes: Smooth Cigars and Chest Hair

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Even in a losing post-game locker room, good quotes can be had. Good visuals, too, as when Joe Bugel stroll through the locker room, frowning, his button down shirt unbuttoned and flapping, his chest hair and muscles defiantly scowling at the world. He's in...

Skins, Steelers and Politics

"Politics meets Redskins meets Monday [bleepin'] night!" Adam Gibson was shouting through a megaphone at a group of Steelers fans two hours before kickoff. "What's Pennsylvania waiting for?" You know it's the Monday night before an election when the President of the Dead Tree Crew is resorting to insulting...

The Last Time the Steelers Were in Town....

This was a different Skins-Steelers game. But still funny. (By John McDonnell - TWP) The last time the Steelers visited D.C. for a regular season NFL game was Sept. 11, 1988, with the defending Super Bowl champion Redskins pulling out a 30-29 win, pushing their record to 1-1 in...

Obama Is Waving His Terrible Towel

Morning Look: A Zorny Halloween

When I was a kid, Halloween meant stirrups and eye black. I'm pretty sure I dressed as Cal Ripken every year from about age 5 to about age 23. With my statuesque pre-pubescent build (yeah, that includes at age 23), I was pretty much a dead ringer for Cal....

Gilbert Arenas Plans to Elope

Gilbert's knee tattoo. A few lost souls, blinded by the Potbelly and Fuddruckers lights, have suggested we write less about Gilbert Arenas until he resumes playing basketball. Well, sure, and maybe The Post should also devote more resources to coverage of Howard and Georgetown football. Look, fact is, Gilbert...
