Morning Bog: Opening Day Payback
Two brave WashingtonPost.com interns with a tiny bit of extra time means we're at last trying to breathe life into the daily top five box, seen on the left. Thanks, Jake and Chris. If you write blog stuff about local teams, or see anything interesting, send your links along. Jake's up today:
Opening day should really be a federal holiday -- banks closed, schools out -- the whole nine yards -- or at least the whole nine innings. But while some played hooky to welcome the boys of summer, we interns have been hard at work compiling today's top five.
* Trick question: does Jim Bowden get embarrassed when Emilio Bonifacio comes back to bite the Nats in the backside? (Nationals Pride)
* Orioles fans don't brood and they certainly don't hold grudges, especially against Mark Teixeira. But actions speak louder than words as the players handed the Yankees a slightly more PC beating than the one that fans wanted to deliver. (Deadspin)
* It looks like the Cooley boys have taken up the book-making trade. Most people do their best to hide the fact that their brackets are torched, but Tanner is clinging to the one thing he can hold over his brother's head. (Cooley Zone)
* Beggars can't be choosers, but Darrius Heyward-Bey's recent workout with the Eagles has the guys at Hogs Haven green with envy. Hopefully Joe Flacco has got some pull, and the Terps star stays in state. (Hogs Haven)
* Tomorrow's game against the Cavaliers will be another walk in the park for the Wizards, right? After all, 37-1 at home isn't that impressive. Gil might have to psych himself up with some photos of the glory days, or glory day, as it were. (Bullets Forever)
