Morning Bog: DUIs, Cosmo Girl, Zimmermen, Gil

Intern Jake provides some morning links:

Since 2000, the Redskins have made some mistakes, both on and off the field. Currently, the Skins are tied for second in the NFC East with the Cowboys in number of players arrested since Y2K, three behind the New York Giants. It doesn't look like anyone will top the Bengals' league-leading 29 pick(up)s, but there's just no telling how far the Skins might go next season. (Hogs Haven)

And with Albert Haynesworth coming to town, Chris Cooley's pool parties might get a bit out of control. Good thing he's got so many rules for his new play place. On a related note, hats off to #47 for the F. Scott Fitzgerald reference. (Cooley Zone)

The Terps may have missed out by failing to pursue top defensive prospect Barkevious Mingo, especially considering his latest credential: a finalist in the prestigious "Name of the Year" competition. (NOTY)

Speaking of the Terps, check out Joe Smith's mix-tape, under his stage name, Joe Beast. (First Cuts via MI)

D.C. United rookie Chris Pontius is featured in CosmoGirl.com's "Hot Soccer Guys" collection. (Cosmo Girl)

Beat writers agree that Backstrom's game last night was the best by a Cap all season. Yes, that includes Ovechkin. (Dan Rosen's NHL.com blog)

Blogger says Ovechkin is the Tracy McGrady of the NHL. Labeled a choker in his second playoffs, really? (Bare Knucks)

He didn't sleep through his alarm. The dog didn't eat his homework. Elijah Dukes was five minutes late to the team stretch because he was participating in a community Little League event, and now he has to face Rizzo's wrath. Little league lateness seems like cause enough to send him back down to AAA. Who needs him anyway... besides the Nationals? (Nationals Enquirer)

If the Dukes debacle isn't adding enough insult to injury, former Nationals great Brad Wilkerson announced his retirement today, prompting Nationals fans everywhere to pine for the glory days of 2005. Maybe one day, Wilkerson will have a hideous statue created in his honor. (Nationals Pride)

Re-naming the Nats the Zimmermen is a smart move. (Big League Stew)

Ivan Carter's debut as host of Washington Post Live includes a sit-down with Gilbert Arenas. (Wizards blog)

So how does the NFC East compare to the rest of the NFL in number of players arrested since Y2K?
Break it down, Agt. Steinz.

Why is United trying to create another dotcom whether Namoff or Pontius? It didn't end well last time.

Hats off to Steinz for the Cosmo Girl reference.

More than likely, Jake DiGregorio just reads DC United's twitter, rmontcal.
