Caps' Schultz, Fehr Hit the Links

One might say that the Caps got robbed!!!!!!!! when it came to this year's All-Star balloting, but some of them seem to be enjoying the nice little break that comes along with not being one of the NHL's golden boys. PGATour.com somehow recognized and then interviewed defenseman Jeff Schultz and...

About Those Brett Leonhardt Jerseys

Eric Boshoven and his Leonhardt jersey. There are at least two possible reasons for buying a "Leonhardt 80" Caps jersey. You could, like Eric Boshoven, want to pay touching tribute to one of the craziest NHL stories of the year, the one in which a Web producer went from...

In Praise of Collin Balester's Blog

(Ripped from Bally's Blog) With Gilbert Arenas's blog having been updated exactly once in the current NBA season, maybe the moment has passed, but there was a time when it was pretty obvious that this was the sports blogging capital of the country, with Arenas and a naked-picture-posting Chris...

Coach K, Ref Touching and Kornheiser

* Georgetown fans remain livid about the Duke result, calling the Greg Monroe technical "blatantly shady and Donaghy-eque." In their rage, though, they produced the above image, which shows that anger actually can yield peacefulness. (Hire Esherick) * Seth Davis talks D.C. sports, among other things, telling a blogger...

Braxton Dupree's Salute, and Other Terp Questions

Questions and answers from yesterday's big Maryland win over Virginia. How can one spot the family of Greivis Vasquez in the crowd? Matching Greivis t-shirts, of course. This would be brother, sister-in-law, and nephew, sitting in the Terps family section last night. The shirts say "Vasquez, 21" on the...

The Caps, John Kerry and a Scourge

One thing that's become clear over the past few days is that the vast majority of sports section readers would prefer we keep the politics well clear of our section. That being said, here's another item about politics. See, this is why people accuse the mainstream media of being...

Racing President Pics and Phillip Daniels

Future Pulitzer, please. (By Jonathan Ernst - Reuters) Well, I have a new photo on my desktop, for today at least. Observe Giant Racing Abe, on yesterday's Illinois Inaugural Float, passing by the White House. That's the President and First Lady in the background. Any time that the current...

Redskins Videos: Eagles Hate, Devin Thomas Being Social

Two approaches to the Redskins offseason: find joy in others' pain, or find pain in others' joy. The first approach: it's Redskins-obsessed and terminally depressed comedian Danny Rouhier, who finds temporary relief in supporting the Cardinals, because they beat the Eagles. "You can't watch them play and not hate them,"...

Dave Neal's Flesh Wound

The last time I watched the Maryland men's basketball team play live at the Comcast Center, Virginia Tech's Dorenzo Hudson stole the show by vomiting right on the court in the middle of play. As fans chanted "MVP" at the custodians and students deployed "Fear the Mop" signs, I...

Santana Moss at the Portis Inaugural Bash

I got to the Clinton Portis-Antawn Jamison All Pros and All Stars Inaugural Celebration sometime around 11:30 on Sunday night. My credential was good enough to get me in to the $125 common folks room, but I didn't make much effort to cruise into the VIP, so I was...

Dexter Manley and Obama

Why is Dexter Manley covering up Barack Obama's face? Well, read on. There have been several sports-themed inaugural events in recent days, and there will be more. The first that I attended was Saturday night's Change the Game gala at Sports Club/LA on M Street. The guests included Vernon...

Mike Wise in Cameron
