NHL Completes All-Star Mockery

One of these guys is way more awesome than the other. (By Joe Giza - Reuters) The NHL un-self-consciously concluded its all-star mockery this afternoon, releasing the official final voting tallies that will decide the game's starters. As expected, Alex Ovechkin lost to Sidney Crosby. Badly. Overwhelmingly. Horrendously. Embarrassingly....

Top 11 D.C. Sports Moments of 2008

Number one. (By Preston Keres - TWP) Author's note: This is the third straight year I've done this, but the first time I've remembered to do it during the actual year. For past years, see 2007 and 2006. Also, I will be chatting on this subject Monday at 11...

The Best Zorn Answer Ever

This bit of pre-holiday magic is brought to you by ESPN 980's Jim Zorn Show. Steve Czaban: You were outscored by an 0-16 team this year, the Lions. What is priority one for scoring more points next year? Jim Zorn: Well, being better on offense. Steve Czaban: How so?...

A Fire Karl Hobbs Site

(By John McDonnell - TWP) What happens when a middle-of-the-pack Atlantic 11 team goes on a three-game losing streak thousands of miles from home, capped off by a 26-point loss to Hawaii and a narrow decision against a previously 1-10 MEAC squad whose only W came against Wilmington College?...

Morning Look: The Redskins 2008 Season, in Art

A proper treatment of the Redskins' 2008 season requires thousands of words. Not wanting to miss any, my employer gave you zillions. But really, all we had to do was post this photo. That pretty much does the trick. The 2008 Redskins provided laughs. They provided bursts of intense...

Brooks Laich Says Ovechkin is the Best

Laich disagrees with the wisdom of the crowds. (By Preston Keres - TWP) After spending thousands of keystrokes on the Redskins and their Pro Bowl promotional campaign, I should briefly note a few differing perspectives on the ongoing NHL All-Star voting. Like, you could ask Brooks Laich, and he'd...

Skins Fans Despoil Cerrato's Wiki

Sort of a rough start to the offseason for Vinny Cerrato, from his team's Web site promoting a video of a fan calling for Cerrato's job, to his team's message board promoting an idea, first promoted by his team's radio station, that Cerrato should be fired. That's a new media...

Fan Surveys: Skins vs. Caps

Within a two-day span earlier this month, I got two different e-mails from two different fans who are season ticket holders for both the Caps and the Redskins. At the time, both men were feeling a lot more warm and fuzzy about the former than the latter. Now, winning...

Morning Look: Bloody Blatche

(By Richard Carson - Reuters) Five observations from yesterday's Wizards win, which made it two and counting. 1) Andray Blatche came up strong at the end. Very strong. But you just can't look tough while celebrating with a little bit of white tissue stuck in one nostril. (Another example...

Redskins.com Promotes Fan Rebellion

For months now, the official radio empire of the Washington Redskins has seemingly gone out of its way to criticize the team, with several of its employees among the front-office's harshest critics. The editorial freedom is to be applauded, although lots of cynics still figure the purge is coming....

Today's Top 5: Smoot Wins His Fantasy League

Sports producer Lindsay Applebaum here with today's top five links, or really just the first blog things I read today: 1) Fred Smoot wins Chris Cooley's fantasy league. His trophy acceptance speech: "This is mine, I totally deserve it, and if it wasn't for me, I wouldn't have this." (Cooley...

Offseason Plans: The Cooley Gang

Cooley and Yoder. (By Deirdre Eitel - Bozeman Daily Chronicle via AP file) The Cooley gang--which, for today, included Chris Cooley, younger brother Tanner, Todd Yoder, Colt Brennan and Ryan Boschetti--was one of the last to leave Redskins Park on get-away day. As they sat in the lobby, among...

Jim Zorn Goes Formal

Jim Zorn's usual Monday presser attire has ranged from sneaks and khakis to khakis and sneaks, accompanied by sweatshirts and polo shirts and other Sunday-at-the-bar shirts. Not particularly formal. So today, when he strolled out in a neatly pressed shirt, burgundy-and-gold tie and Indian-head cufflinks, eyebrows were raised. "Yeah,...

Jim Zorn's Offseason Goals: Dinosaur Training

Striding into the Dinosaur Offseason. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP) All that Hip Hip Hooray, playing sudden, going to heroics but Staying Medium business has petered out long ago. But the Z Man hasn't gone anywhere. A few hours ago, Santana Moss was asked to describe Jim Zorn's season-ending...

Clinton Portis and the Quest for 1,500 Yards

Portis, en route to 1,487. (By Marcio Jose Sanchez - AP) As I was driving to Redskins Park this morning, I heard John Riggins absolutely unloading upon Clinton Portis. Former Skins running backs now employed by Skins media really have a problem with this guy, huh? Today's issue: a...

Morning Look: A Rookie Touchdown

Wait, rookie second-round picks are allowed to score? (By Al Bello - Getty) "Beating a dead horse" doesn't begin to describe this. More like "stomping upon a mangled, bloody, decomposing equine carcass that has been lying on the road for four months and is covered by maggots as the...
