Morning Bog: Doin' the Bull Dance. Feelin' the Flow.

Morning links from Intern Jake....

Ted wants Caps fans to go to their happy place. In a post complete with not one, but two smiley faces, and no less than three uses of the phrase "jerk it out," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis urges fans to go a little Happy Gilmore. Harness in the good energy, block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad. It's like a carousel. (Ted's Take)

As the Washington Nationals get ready for their home opener today, fans should take some tips from Anthony Wilson at Nationals Pride, because no one likes "that guy." Please, heed his advice. Nats fans will be far too busy booing the players on the field to turn their attention to the 43-year-old who still brings a glove to the game. (Nationals Pride)

Washington Redskins wide receiver Devin Thomas claims to be getting along really well with Jason Campbell... really, really, creepily well. Don't get me wrong; everyone is entitled to an NBA 2K9 partner, but I'm not blogging about my buddy Phil. Then again, Thomas apparently also claims that April 9th was a Monday, so maybe we should take what he says with a grain of salt. (Devin Thomas)

Some might argue that Redskins owner, Dan Snyder, should just stick to his day job - which is not such a safe bet anymore. It turns out that Synder isn't just putting Washingtonians on an emotional rollercoaster. Six Flags investors are up-chucking the same corn dogs these days. (City Desk)

Perhaps Wizards' Center Brendan Haywood should have gone airborne to swat away teammate Caron Butler's game winning buzzer beater Saturday against the Raptors. This could be the first time in history that a city is glad that the NBA has the draft lottery for the number one pick. Is it possible to add insult to a 19-win season? (Truth About It)

IIRC, I thought I heard somewhere that the Last-place team doesn't usually get the 1st pick in the lottery? Again, I could be wrong, but I thought the best spot to be in (according to lottery history) is 3rd to last...

Wilson: "Do NOT, ever, almost without exception, throw a home run ball back, even if it's hit by the other team."

THANK YOU! It just makes you look like a sad, loser Cubs fan. My God, be happy you've left Nationals Park with a nice souvenir. Or even better, hand it to a nearby youngster and make their week.

When we were watching Happy Gilmore this weekend, were you thinking about how you could work it into your next blog update? Just curious.

Kind of, being in last place just means we have the highest chance of getting the first pick. I'm not sure of the exact percentages, but it's something like last place = 50% of balls for drawing, next to last = 25%, and so on.
