D.C. Sports Bog: May 10, 2009 - May 16, 2009

Cerrato, Bowden, D-Hall on the Caps

Before the Caps do their year-end press availability, let's take a quick glance at what other D.C. sports figures were saying about the team, on their blogs, their Twitter feeds, and their team-owned television shows. Jim Bowden: He Tweets! Who knew? Yes, this is confirmed as Bowden. Another way to...

American Dad Does Riggo

So last Sunday night on American Dad, we met a special guest character named Tank Bates. Tank was a former Pro-Bowl fullback and accomplished ball carrier for the Washington Redskins, a stocky white guy, beloved by fans, who wore the No. 44. Uhhhh, ok. "The persons in this film...

Zorn on Snyder and the Media

(By Tracy Woodward - TWP) Jim Zorn was on Fox Sports Radio L.A.'s KLAC this week to discuss the Redskins. Because there's apparently a burning desire for burgundy and gold spring football news in Southern California. He answered Jason Campbell questions yet again, answered Albert Haynesworth and Brian Orakpo...

Fan Questions About Game 7

Question: What exactly is happening in the above video? Answer: The real answer is that the ad agency for the National Geographic Museum has a Chinese Terra Cotta Warrior statue exhibit coming up, so they hired this living statue to help promote it, bringing a film crew to Game...

And Now: Blank Screens

Ovie acknowledges the crowd. (Reuters) I was trying to find Pat Sajak around 6:30 Wednesday night when two fans and acquaintances came up to say hello. Unprompted, they told me Ryan Zimmerman had just extended his hit streak to 31 in the top of the ninth. Good news, I...

Caps Fans: Still Weirder Than Pens Fans

I was scrolling through my camera this morning. Can't even remember what I was looking for. Then I saw a bunch of random images of weird Caps fans. Some were from this series. Some were from March or February. Some I've used before; most I haven't. They're a colorful...

Ovie vs. Crosby, Take Seven

Seriously, I'll personally give $1 to the first national media outlet that runs a massive graphic previewing Game 7 via the mugs of David Steckel and Jordan Staal. Or, better yet, Milan Jurcina and Kris Letang. Nothing but readers. Above, NHL.com. (Note: There are some incredibly great prop bets...

Zimmerman Dooms Streak By Doing ESPN

Some decision-maker at The Post decided a few weeks ago to install massive flat screen TVs right in front of my desk. This means I'm often staring at ESPNEWS all day. They do a lot of sports stories, typically. But I can't say I recall many feel-good interviews with members...

When the Caps Beat the Pens in the Playoffs

Fans don't change. (By Len Redkoles - Getty) For all the Tale of the Tape stuff with the superstars in this series, I still haven't seen a better stat-filled sentence than this one, from Japers Rink: Ninety-two of the series has been played with the teams either tied or...

The Oh No :( Caps Fan

This series feels like it began when Petr Nedved was still a frisky teenager, and it's easy to forget some of the earlier storylines. Internet death "threats." Hat trick protests. Yanni. Seems like so long ago. Then there's this one: after Kris Letang's tipped overtime slapper won Game 3...

Chris Cooley Karaoke With the Stars, and More

Some late-afternoon links * Chris Cooley continues to meet more famous people than I've even heard of, this time performing some karaoke with Chuck Liddell and Brad Penny. Both of those guys perhaps have their best athletic days behind them. And yet they got to be the frontmen while Cooley...

The Caps' Family and Friends Are Nervous

Not nervous. (By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) The Capitals all have family and friends. Their family and friends are all watching these playoff games. And while watching these playoff games, they're all feeling sort of like you, as yet another evening heads into the third period with a...

Varly Has a Posse

I'm going to ignore the promised sports media hygiene post, and instead just present this fun little fella out at Caps practice this morning. The other toddlers at practice all seem to be wearing Ovechkin jerseys, for what that's worth. Other than that, four hours of lovely Turnpike and...

How the Caps Celebrated

By Bruce Bennett - Getty After Brooks Laich had addressed about 732 media members tonight, and after I made him repeat himself yet again in the hallway, everyone turned off their recording devices and went to find someone else. Laich just stood there, smiling. "What a game, though, eh?"...

Pens Fans Have Great Chest Hair

I've suggested in the past that the Penguins fans don't make spectacles of themselves in the same manner as Caps fans. A quick trip through the concourse tonight again confirmed that suspicion. The most noteworthy unique shirt? A t-shirt on which "A.O. You Suck" had been scribbled with a...

Penguins Prez Has History in D.C.

By Bog friend and Post Metro reporter Susan Kinzie In playoff hockey, David Morehouse said, every night is like election night. He should know: He's a veteran of Washington politics, who went from a volunteer driver in Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign to a senior advisor in John Kerry's. He's had...

Caps Seek Uber Desperation

Game 7 Desperation. (By John McDonnell - TWP) Things I learned from a trip to Pittsburgh this morning. Lesson 1: Uber Desperation Needed Pens Coach Dan Bylsma used the word "desperation" three times in his first answer today. Meantime, in the rival dressing room, we heard this: "Our backs...

Brashear: "Why Wouldn't We Win This One"

Donald Brashear just came off the ice, skating with his teammates at Mellon Arena for the first time in this series. He stayed out for extra work with the other likely scratches, said "probably not" about being active tonight, but said "don't ask me, I'm not the coach" when...
