D. Hall on Vick: "He's Definitely Been Humiliated"

(2007 AP photo.) DeAngelo Hall called into ESPN 980's John Thompson Show yesterday to discuss the release of Michael Vick, and whether his longtime friend and ex-teammate has a future in the NFL. (Listen here.) Hall had already supported Vick on a call-in to the Junkies last week, and...

About Those MASN Defining Moments

You know that series of MASN ads in which Orioles and Nats fans describe their "defining moments," moments that justify and redeem their fandom? Another round is on the way; you can submit a 2009 defining moment online, or go to open auditions at Nats Park this Sunday or...

Nats By The Numbers

A few numbers, spitefully chosen to accentuate the negative, without any context or deeper statistical understanding: 116.3: Nats' losses, if they continue on their current pace. Still not on pace for history. But for smiles, perhaps. Here's Mike Maroth, when the '03 Tigers failed to reach 120: "Believe it or...

Chris Cooley Dances to PBJTime at Bat Mitzvah

Jason Taylor, Exploding Burritos and TK on Radio

How not to spend a vacation day for which you're getting paid not to work, by Dan Steinberg * Jason Taylor is now saying....pretty much what you'd expect him to be saying: That his year in D.C. "felt like five years, to be honest;" that "everyone should know I'm not...

Well, This Has Been a Good Week

(By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) Around 8:30 this evening, I started pulling photos of Stephen Strasburg, Alex Ovechkin and Blake Griffin. The three men sent to redeem D.C. sports, all once-in-a-generation top-overall types, a trio that would be complete once the Wiz finally caught a break and earned...

Redskins Nickname: Still Hot-Button

So the whole thing with the federal appeals court and the Redskins trademark and the debate over how long was too unreasonable for unhappy Native Americans to have waited to challenge the trademark....essentially irrelevant. It's all about popular opinion, anyhow, and whether the Redskins name will ever be judged too...

Barra Brava Represent at Chivas

For some unknown reason, I watched virtually the entire Fox Soccer Channel pre-game show Saturday night. I was pleased to see several shots of D.C. United partisans, this being the one team with the potential to reverse D.C.'s reputation for suffering rather than administering massive fan invasions. I was...

Nats Sausage Fail

You know, these stories are getting progressively more entertaining. Frowny wasn't really all that funny, aside from Stan Kasten calling him the player to be named later. Rijo and Bowden getting fired or resigning or whatever wasn't funny, either, nor was Kasten going on Philly sports radio in search of...

Rob Dibble Has Had Enough

Chatting today at 11. Looking for suggestions on how to spend the next three months. Submit questions here. For whatever you want to say about the Nats, Rob Dibble at least keeps me glued to MASN. I managed to delete most of my transcript from last night, when he and...

Jim Bowden Discusses the Nats' Pen

In case reading his Twitter feed isn't comprehensive enough, you can also discern some of Jim Bowden's thoughts by following his Facebook postings. Like, he apparently posted the following on Nick Johnson's wall. Nick all is cool.....Lakers won big!......your bullpen is friggin killing me.......start warming up.....you can do both....the Babe...

Nats Bats Also Feature Spelling Mistakes

Photo by Cathy Taylor. The first time I met Jordan Zimmermann, he explained just how often people confuse him with Ryan Zimmerman. Hell, Sports Illustrated spelled his name wrong throughout its season preview. It's understandable, and their status as like-named teammates is undeniably bizarre. In that context, if any...

Simmons Podcast on Ovechkin's Villainy

2008 photo by Toni L. Sandys - TWP Perhaps because I live in a D.C. sports media bubble, I was under some impression that, outside a few badly dressed Canadian media members and some rabid fans in dying industrial towns, Alex Ovechkin was fairly well-regarded in a national sense....

Dick Cheney Looks Happy at the Nats Game

Sunday photos by Evan Vucci - AP On the first day of the first week of the Nats' time in the D.C. sports spotlight, I decided to look for some photos of National joy. This is what I came up with. I'm not sure if Dick Cheney has various...

Nationals Tarp Fail

In case you didn't hear, the Nationals tarp failed Saturday night, which led to fans rushing down out of the stands in a futile attempt to help, security guards lending their muscle, security guards comically slipping and falling in the middle of the field, Anderson Hernandez sprinting to get...
