Jon Miller's Most Memorable Baseball Game

Nats Kosher Fail

A few observations about this story, concerning the dismissal of one kosher food vendor and the delay in launching another at Nationals Park: * You know it's bad when even Washington Jewish Week is queuing up to take shots at you. * The specifics of the case are extremely murky,...

Manny Burriss: Super Redskins Fan

(2008 photo by Luis M. Alvarez - AP) Being a good D.C. kid, a Wilson grad and a former Logan Circle/Shaw resident, I figured Giants shortstop Manny Burriss would be a D.C. sports fan. I figured correctly. Burriss had several dozen D.C.-based supporters out at Nats Park this week,...

Presidential Dog Eats Broadcaster's Coat

Redskins Embrace Texas

(1999 photo by Lucian Perkins - TWP) Last year, Skins wideout Malcolm Kelly would come into the Washington locker room talking about the wonders of Texas, and he'd find few reinforcements for his cause. And now? "Now it's me, Rock, Dock, big Mike Williams. Lendy [Holmes], who came in...

Chris Meidt Discusses Colt Brennan, Chase Daniel

I had to write a big-boy story for today's newspaper about Chase Daniel and Colt Brennan, their friendship, and the fact that despite their obscene college numbers, both are sort of scrambling for a chance in the NFL. This was the best part: in college, they combined to pass...

Mike Williams Is Large: The Photo Evidence

(Photos by Matt Terl) Look, I know all the problems with this stunt. You will laugh that I'm a skinny undefined vegetarian disgrace to the profession of sports-writing. You will argue that journalists shouldn't really be posing for photos with athletes. You will wonder why I have such a...

Jim Bowden: "I've Had My Shot"

By Jonathan Newton - TWP Jim Bowden is long gone from the Nats, and the pieces he left behind continue to be dismantled, just about on a daily basis. But in some ways, this season will always be tacked onto his front-office resume, which is why it makes sense...
