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 confirm would be to note that he follows Jenny McCarthy, John Legend, Paula Abdul, Hugh Jackman, Miley Cyrus, Mark Sanchez and both Jessica and Ashlee Simpson. Yup, that's Bowden. His Caps comment:
Caps - Pens...game 7.....Crosby vs. Ovechkin.........is this better than Gretzky vs. Lemieux?
Other choice Bowden thoughts:
* "Tim Floyd......say it ain't so Tim......a thousand dollars? to influence O.J. Mayo to attend USC? I'm not buying it.....has to be more..." [Note: How would he possibly know how much it costs to illicitly influence player signings?]
* "I need a helicopter on tuesday....Ducks and Lakers playing same time in Southern Cal.....anyone have one I can borrow for a few hours?"
* "Pitching is like Real Estate.....it's all about location, location, location"
Ha, nice analogy. And nice of Bowden to pick up his entire bullpen using Section 8 vouchers.
DeAngelo Hall: He Tweets too! Who knew? His Caps comments:
Shout out To 757's own Ryan Zimmerman of the Nats 30 Game Hit Streak...Looking for 31...and a Game 7 Win from the Caps tonight!
So Ryan Zimmerman ended his Hitting Streak, The Caps Lost Game 7..Maybe I jinxed them..But all it really means is we're that much closer to Football Season and The Redskins...I like the sound of that!
Yup, that pretty much sums up D.C. sports.
(And previously, after the Rangers series: "Oh yea Congrats to the Washington Caps and Alex O!!! Great Series, Lets keep it going! This is going to be a great Year for DC Sports!!!")
More from D.Hall:
* "Bout to look at houses. The VA housing market is off the chain$$$$$"
* "Back to House Shopping this week!!...The Housing market is killing me right now...Can't seem to find that Dream Home..."
Well, maybe he could ask @Jbowdeniv for some housing advice. I hear there are some great deals in Wheeling, WVA. Housing is all about location.
Ryan Zimmerman: He blogs! And, as always, he mentions the Caps. The passage:
It was kind of ironic the Hitting Streak ended the same night as the Caps season did. What a playoff series that was � the two best players in hockey going head-to-head for seven games. Sure, last night was kind of a letdown and anti-climatic, but the entire series made people across the nation pay attention to hockey. It sure was a great two weeks for the sport.
Actually, there's nothing to make fun of here. He's 100 percent right. His comments about his hitting streak are also unimpeachable: lauding DiMaggio, talking about the randomness of baseball, and writing this: "I would take an 0-2 with 2 sac flies, 2 RBIs and a walk over a 1-5 any day of the week. Bottom line is our job is to win baseball games and do whatever it takes to make that happen."
Ask @Jbowdeniv about that one, too.
Vinny Cerrato: He speaks! The Redskins' non-GM was on Redskins Nation with Larry Michael this week, talking Caps and offering insight like only he can.
"They won the first round of the playoffs, had a tough battle, lost four games to three to Pittsburgh," Cerrato said in a particular bit of bold analysis. "So I think they've got a young team, and when they've got Ovechkin they've got probably the best player in hockey. They've got a bunch of young guys, and they've got a good minor-league team, I think that they announced last night during the game they had won their championship, or their playoff round, so I think George is doing a great job there."
Cerrato approves of the direction they're heading? That breeze you just heard came from 127,000 Caps fans shuddering simultaneously. Anyhow, it turns out that Cerrato used to play hockey.He said he was a scorer. Larry Michael asked if he was like Ovechkin.
"No, I was more like Crosby," Cerrato joked. "I hung around the net."
Hey, it's better than listening to Michael talk about how all three second-year pass catchers are on pace to make major contributions this season.
