D.C. Sports Bog: June 14, 2009 - June 20, 2009

A Shirtless Jason Campbell With Dolphins

(SeaWorld photo) Can't say I have much to say about this photo from SeaWorld, other than I've never seen a better photo of a shirtless Redskins' quarterback gazing longingly at water mammals. Dude can gaze longingly with the best of them, no? It was actually a double-dip of Campbell...

From Mac McGarry to World Series of Poker

(Courtesy WSOP/IMPDI) When Leo Wolpert was a senior at Thomas Jefferson High, his quiz bowl team lost in the first round of Mac McGarry's "It's Academic." "I was absolutely devastated, crushed," Wolpert told me. "I probably cried like a little girl afterward. I was just in a rage." When...

Ken Rosenthal Stands By His Acta Report

CSN's Russ Thaler talked to Fox Sports's Ken Rosenthal, the man behind the initial "Say goodbye to Manny Acta" reports, and in a fairly fascinating two-question interview, Rosenthal didn't back down a smidge. Except in the sense that while saying that media reports shouldn't change how a team makes...

Morning Bog: Lisa Hillary Was Dancing in the Club

* If you were watching MASN, you might recall that Craig Stammen actually looked like he might cry after getting his face smeared with shaving cream by John Lannan. At this point, you'd pretty much expect him to go on the DL for 15 days with eye irritation. Still,...

Afternoon Bog: Nats Bringing Kosher Back

Teddy and friends at Eastern Market. If Nats Kosher Fail becomes mild local news, then today's word that the Nats are bringing Kosher back also qualifies, even if it's part of a press release also involving the introduction of some seriously un-Kosher sounding barbeque. But there will evidently be...

New York Media Responds to Nats Loss

Cheney: Nats :: Coughlin: Yanks. (By Jim McIsaac - Getty) Yesterday morning, the New York papers described a potential loss to the Nationals as "virtually inexcusable" and "embarrassing" and a "humiliation." Then the Yankees lost to the Nationals. Although, owing to the strong performance by New York kid John...

When They Were Champs: The '78 Bullets

(TWP file photo) To help us get through the slow-as-Jansen summer blogging season, each Thursday until Skins training camp begins I'll post a little something from The Post archives concerning a past DMV championship moment. Since we're starting in the week the NBA title was decided, I figured I...

Another DMV Kid Wins a Poker Title

(Courtesy WSOP/IMPDI) I said last night that the Nats' win in Yankee Stadium might be the highlight of the month for D.C. sports, although in the sober gray of morning I'm thinking maybe I went too far. The Wizards could make a franchise-changing trade or draft pick. Ovechkin could...

Orioles Media Guide Fail

A few of you have dinged me for not focusing on the mis-steps of other local sports franchises, such as the Orioles, who have had spelling issues of their own. Fair complaint. So, in the interest of moving toward equity, please observe the cover of the Orioles 2005 media...

At Least the Nats Are Trying Hard

Getting all of it out of my system before Write Only Good Things About the Nats Week begins.... It's frequently been said that the Nationals try hard. This is a good thing, if the alternative is trying soft. A decent portion of any fan base will, in fact, be...

DeShawn's Ducktail, Nick Young's Suit, and More

Non-important Wizards news.... * DeShawn Stevenson is still growing his duck-tail. He wouldn't let me take a picture of it yesterday, because he said he looked too "rugged," but the style was indeed stolen from longtime Stevenson hair nemesis Drew Gooden. "He's mad," Stevenson said of Gooden. "[But] that's...

No, look closely, the uniform is just folded over. (By Bill Kostroun - AP) Man, imagine what these people would be writing if they lived in D.C. Ken Davidoff in Newsday: The Nationals are so horrible that a Yankees loss to them is virtually inexcusable....Their manager, former Mets coach...

Johnny Holliday's Buzz Cut

Johnny Holliday, with shorter hair. Johnny Holliday, voice of the Terps, host of the Nats and all-around broadcasting legend, had a crew cut in high school. Why? "I mean, we all had crew cuts, all the jocks had to have crew cuts," Holliday told me this morning. "I looked...

Quotes From Pointguardpalooza

Mike Lee named it pointguardpalooza yesterday, and it lived up to its name this afternoon. Not only were three of the best point-guard prospects in the country live in Verizon (Steph Curry, Jonny Flynn, and Brandon Jennings), they all spent many minutes rapping with a huge D.C. media contingent,...

Vinny Cerrato's Friendship With Flip Saunders

I've already mentioned this on my Twitter feed and my chat, but just in case anyone isn't reading those versions, here's a partial list of who walked past my hallway chair in Verizon Center today: Flip Saunders, Vinny Cerrato, Sam Cassell, DeShawn Stevenson, Stephen Curry, Jonny Flynn, Brandon Jennings, A.J....

Vegas High on Caps, Not on Wiz in '10

Chatting at 11. Submit questions here. With the championship trophies distributed, it's time to see what Vegas thinks about Gilbert Arenas's knee, an uncertain Caps situation in goal, and the odds that Verizon Center will host dueling league finals next spring. Seriously, if that ever happens, just burn the arena...

D.C.'s '09 Baseball Bobbleheads

Chatting at 11. Submit questions here. There's been such a glut of D.C. baseball bobblehead news in recent days that it's probably worth recapping it all in one spot. * This Sunday is Nationals Night for the Bethesda Big Train at Shirley Povich Field, featuring Phil Wood, Manny Acta,...

Remembering the '69 Senators

To understand the 1969 Washington Senators, think back to June 29, the first game of a double-header with Boston in sweltering RFK. The Senators entered the bottom of the ninth down two runs. Then they rallied, thanks to three walks, a sacrifice fly, a couple of fielder's choices, four...

Flip Saunders: Cowherd Interview Prop

Reason 1,678b(1) you can tell D.C. sports are down: Flip Saunders is invited to appear on Colin Cowherd's national radio show. The local affiliate's Twitter feed directs followers to tune in. Cowherd asks six questions of Saunders. Not one concerns the Wizards. Not one even allows for a tangential reference...
