Ovie Rips Cherry, KidsPost Rips Snyder
* Alex Ovechkin on Don Cherry's recent criticisms, in translation: "Why pay attention to a senile old man? He doesn't like the fact that I celebrate my goals like a soccer player. I'm sure he's just upset that Canada doesn't have a real soccer team. He has to gripe about something, so I guess he found a cause."
What, Toronto FC isn't a real soccer team? (Japers Rink)
* Because there was evidently a concern that the Washington Post was tilting too far toward pro-Redkins propaganda, a new section decided to level the front office today. That's right, KidsPost:
"Copying success can work for kids as well as pro football teams. Let's say you want to get better grades in school this spring. It would be smart to look at what the best students do and follow their example....The Redskins' owner, Dan Snyder, and all the Redskins' coaches are trying hard to make the team into a Super Bowl champion. They might have more success if they acted more like the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers than like the Washington Redskins."

* Stan Kasten on the media's Bowden fixation: "As we know, with the difficult times in the real world with the economy and enough worries on the mind of our customers, we didn't need to be adding to those worries. We need the fans to be focusing on the positive story lines that had been built up through a very successful offseason, an offseason that has seen our team return to health and grow and develop by another year. [We have ] seen additions to the rotation, additions to the position players -- the optimism that would lead into this kind of season. So, yeah, [the lack of attention to baseball] was both unwelcomed and unfair."
Uh, really? You're going to suggest that the sports media has done a disservice to working-Joe America which, hit hard by the global downturn, has been waiting on pins and mortgage-backed needles for the latest news on Jordan Zimmermann's Spring Training performance? Also, "unwelcomed" by whom exactly? Web traffic would seem to indicate that Nationals fans welcomed that news very much, thank you. Watch out Stan: KidsPost is watching you. (MLB.com)
* And in more depressing economic news, Chris Cooley did some math and figured out that during some of the days Jason Taylor didn't want to be here, he'd have been making about $4,250 an hour to work out and lift weights.Cooley's justifiable conclusion: Taylor hates money.
"Hell, I would go play in Russia for $10,000,000," Cooley wrote. "I would pack my bags and fly out tomorrow, 'I'll see ya in February.'
