Nats World Series Odds Improving

Noted briefly.

* The Nats' World Series odds have improved. They're now at 150-1. That's ahead of the Pirates and the Padres, tied with the Orioles and Royals, and behind everyone else. (Via Nationals Enquirer)

* The Redskins' Super Bowl odds are 35-1, last in the NFC East. See Mister Irrelevant.

* Look! Marginally interesting Caps hats! Plus Wizard-themed Nats hats!

* Who says Wizards games are boring? From the AP: "Before the game, Arenas walked through the locker room with a 'Do Not Disturb' hotel room sign hanging from a chain around his neck." Yup, that's pretty much the state of the franchise.

* Larry Michael seems to have shed his paranoid delusions during the offseason. Yesterday on Redskins Nation, he discussed the Oakland Raiders' hiring of Tom Cable in cheery tones. Here were his thoughts.

"You know what, last year the Redskins caught a lot of heat for the extended coach search, it happened AFTER the Super Bowl. Well, what's the difference here? I'm not hearing anybody complaining about the Raiders waiting so long to hire a head coach. [The Chiefs] don't have a head coach and they're not catching any grief. Just a, you know, double standard."

Congrats for self-identifying with the most hapless franchise in professional sports, Larry.

Well yeah, I mean if the Raiders are doing it then it must be OK.

Fail on all classic or new Caps' caps not in red, white or blue. Don't muck with the team colors.

"Congrats for self-identifying with the most hapless franchise in professional sports, Larry."

Huh? He didn't say anything about the Lions, the Clippers, or the Nats...

I actually prefer a double standard to Larry Michael.

Isn't Larry Michael a living media double standard?

I just can't believe that Larry Michael has a show devoted to the Redskins that's on every weekday during the offseason. Is he going to talk about the draft every day for the next three months? Then minicamp minutiae after that for three months? Kind of scary.

steinberg you're killing me- exposing all my go-to hat vendors...

and re alternate colors- there's a reason for EVERYTHING; so long as you hold at least 1 original colorway in your stash, all variants are copacetic...

Dang. I finally get a post through here and it's typo-ridden.

"Syracuse Nats cap"

On another (Nats) note (and as double-posted to the Nats Journal comments section):

In other news, how did the Post miss out on this little tidbit? Valentines delivered by Screech? Wow. Just wow. (Or should this be a Bog item?)
