The Week 17 Mustache Report

The Shaun Hill look. (By Dilip Vishwanat - Getty) This mustache thing is getting serious. The Bay Area media are now reporting that "most" of the 49ers have grown mustaches in advance of Sunday's throwback throwdown, when San Fran's old-school jerseys will be matched with old-school fuzz. Lest the...

Wiz Wuz Robbed in Cleveland

Questions and answers concerning the Wizards' four-point loss in Cleveland last night, which, stupidly, many of us watched, despite knowing deep in our hearts there was no way it wouldn't end in utter tragedy. You're an objective journalist, right? Yeah, for every sporting event in the world besides Cavs-Wizards....

Meet Charlie White, the Redskins Usher

"I just lost a good friend," Charlie White was telling me on Sunday, about an hour before the Redskins' final home game of 2008. White was standing where he always does, at the bottom of section 141, in the dream seats, wearing his FedEx Field jacket and a winter...

D.C. vs. NYC: Lose Some, Win Some

Taste that, New York. (By Frank Franklin II - AP) Interesting day in the D.C.-NYC sports rivalry, if you can call it that. On the one hand, the all-powerful evildoers from the Bronx swoop in, unannounced, to yank the hometown kid away from the local ball club, giving the...

Cerrato Wants More Draft Picks

(By John McDonnell - TWP) Yesterday was a busy day for draft pick talk, with Skins top football man Vinny Cerrato discussing the draft at length both on his radio show and in his sit-down with Jason Reid. Cerrato emphasized youth and depth and draft picks over and over...

A History of Redskins Mustaches

With the 49ers adopting Throwback Mustaches in advance of this week's crucial showdown that will determine the difference between .563 and .500 (hint: it's about 0.63 0.0000063 one win), I took to the archives for the Best of Redskins Mustache writing. As others have noted, this franchise has long...

The Seth Curry Admiration and Spice Society

(By Chet White - The News & Advance, via AP) If compiling weekly one-liners about obscure Division I programs in Virginia has taught me one thing, it's this: Seth Curry is a mid-Atlantic miracle. Last night? A career-high 30, including 25 in the second half, as the Flames notched...

Faces of Zorn IV: Going Fetal

I think Faces of Zorn are scarier after wins than losses. Yesterday's were scary indeed. I'm not sure if Vinny Cerrato's assurance that Jim Zorn will be back for a sequel is good news for the franchise, but I'm damn straight sure that it's good news for bloggers who...

Love at FedEx Field

So maybe this sort of thing happens all the time, fans bringing their engagement bliss to the site of sporting events, but it's still new to me. First there were those two crazy kids who shot their invitation photos on the ice at Kettler and then had a Caps-themed reception,...

Local Poll Week VI: ACC Birthright

(Photo by Sue Ogrocki - AP. Logo and editing by Ian Oland - A11 media.) Continuing what has been easily the most boring non-conference slate in poll history, here's another version of the Atlantic 11 rankings that is nearly identical to last week's. The top five were unchanged. No....

Football at RFK: The Video

Jim Zorn and the Fetal Position

A non-fetal Zorn argues with officials. (By John McDonnell - TWP) With the matchup with the 49ers and Mike Singletary looming, Jim Zorn was asked several Singletary-ish questions today. He talked, for instance, about seeing the great "orbs" of Singletary's eyes, back when both were NFL players. To close...

Teixeira + Nats = World Series

Eight years and $160 million is a lot for a first baseman, and some Nats have wondered whether that's too much even for a guy like Mark Teixeira, especially based on where the franchise is in its rebuilding efforts. But if you knew he would yield a World Series, you'd...

Philly Tastes Agony

(By Kevin C. Cox - Getty) For a certain segment of Redskins fan, just about ending the Eagles' playoff chances was an entirely worthy goal, one that took away the word "meaningless" from yesterday's win. There was definitely joy streaming off the faces of the chanting masses who mocked...

Morning Look: Santa Comes to Raljon

The holiday spirit was alive and well in section 105 last night, where Buddy Whetzel, in full Santa Claus garb--including sleigh bell--gradually worked his way down to the fourth or fifth row as the game's dramatic end unfolded. "Seat's taken, Santa," said an Eagles fan, standing alone in front...

Grey Goose, Attitudinal Viagra and Club Blache

In a season of tremendous quotes, defensive coordinator Greg Blache delivered a top-three line tonight, when discussing the highlight video he showed to his unit on Saturday night. "Like I told them, I thought they needed some emotional and attitudinal Viagra," Blache said during his post-game Comcast SportsNet interview. "We...

Jokes About Seth and Stephon Curry
