Gary Williams Explains His Fist Pump

(Reuters and TWP photos) When Tiger Woods joined Gary Williams on a Comcast SportsNet set this week, the first thing Woods said was "I haven't forgotten that game." "That game" was the 2001 Elite Eight matchup between top-seeded Stanford and Maryland, which the Terps won to advance to their...

What Tiger's Gallery Looks Like

I guess it's not breaking news that a lot of people like to watch Tiger Woods swing golf clubs. Still, for fun, some before and after shots from the first tee. The before ones are the ones with all the people, a couple minutes before the man teed off....

D.C. United Players Like to Eat

So in one month, Devon McTavish makes the cover of On Tap and a quartet of United players are shown eating guacamole in the pages of Washingtonian. Can't wait for Emilio and Christian Gomez to pose feeding each other California rolls in the next issue of Capitol File. Anyhow,...

Jim Furyk's Caddie Reps the Redskins

(2004 photo by Morry Gash - AP) Amid all the hubbub about Tony Romo, most of it manufactured by desperate writers like myself, I did manage to find at least one more real Skins fan out on the course. That would be Mike "Fluff" Cowan, Jim Furyk's famous caddie,...

Morning Bog: Caps Win July 1

It would be tough for a hockey franchise to have a better July 1 than the Caps had yesterday. There was lots of news, and all of it was positive. * First off, Alex Ovechkin topped Sports Business Journal's list of active NHL Q ratings, beating Crosby by a couple...

Jessica Simpson Sings National Anthem

Here's Jessica Simpson singing the National Anthem before yesterday's ceremonial opening shot. Radar says Simpson "gave Roseanne a run for her money," but I didn't think it was that bad. Of course, Svrluga and I couldn't see a lick of this live, because everyone was standing at attention, and...

Gary Williams on Cheaters and Cheating

(By John McDonnell - TWP One of the great shames of baseball's steroids era was not only that dozens and dozens of guys were cheating, but that dozens and dozens of other guys who weren't cheating didn't say anything. Speaking out makes you look like sour grapes, like you're...

Cowboys Fans Descend on Congressional

This is when I knew it was gonna be bad. We were on the 12th fairway, Tiger and Tony's third hole, when I saw a father and daughter in matching Romo jerseys perched around the green. That would be Joe Ramirez from Mechanicsburg PA, along with his five-year old...

Redskins, Tiger Woods and Jessica Simpson

There were a lot of famous people in a very small stretch of real estate during this morning's opening ceremony at the Tiger Tourney. Of the people you care about, I'll list Tiger Woods, Bruce Boudreau, Jason Campbell, Antwaan Randle El, Rock Cartwright, Shaun Suisham, Leon Harris, Jessica Simpson,...

Previewing Tony Romo and the Congressional Boos

There are certain standards in golf, and certain standards at Congressional Country Club. You don't wear your baseball hat backwards. You don't wear cargo shorts. You don't yell at golfers mid-swing, and you sure as heck don't boo. Wednesday morning will put those standards to a severe test, when...

RePo'd Carts, and Lannan on the Bandwagon

Tiger on Romo, MJ and MJ

By Rob Carr - AP Today's Tiger Woods press conference was a celebritpalooza. I mean, Dan Hellie AND Lindsay Czarniak? No no no, I mean the questions. Tiger got questions about Tony Romo, Jim Brown, Michael Jordan, Roger Federer, Michael Jackson, and Barack Obama, among others. Nothing about Ovechkin,...

Haywood: "I Rank Us Fourth"

Some morning links, with an assist to Max Wasserman and Jake DiGregorio. Also, I'm chatting at 11, live from beautiful Congressional Country Club, which always makes me a feel a tad uncomfortable, extreme privilege making my eyelids twitch. Sure is purty though. Submit questions here. * Reason 4,671(b) why...

Chris Whitney on Jahidi White, Kwame and Gil

Why Redskins Tailgaters Are Still Worried

(2007 photo by Mark Finkenstaedt for TWP) I continue to get frequent e-mails from folks on both sides of Tailgate-Gate; supporters of Change in '09!, who think their commute into the 17th spot of the 39th row of the Green Lot will now be easier, and opponents of change,...

Gilbert and Cassell Have a History

(TWP file photo by Jonathan Newton) Sam Cassell had a retirement ball in Baltimore over the weekend that at least one Wiz player (Javaris Crittenton) attended. Nice life, when you can have your retirement ball before your 40th birthday, no? That also was an excuse for the Baltimore Sun...

John Kerry Needs to Go to More Nats Games

By popular demand, here is the vast majority of the dialogue between John Kerry and Debbi Taylor on MASN, from Kerry's visit to Nats Park last week. I'm not sure there's much to say about this, other than John Kerry clearly should get himself to Half Street a bit...

Morning Bog: Brian Mitchell Strikes Back

(TWP file photo by John McDonnell) * The never-silent Brian Mitchell has been mostly silent since he was let go from ESPN 980, purportedly for economic reasons. You knew that was an untenable situation, that the explosion was coming. And today, the dynamite goes boom. According to USA Today,...

MASN Spelling Fail

See how last week's occasionally half-hearted but nonetheless genuine attempt to write positive Nats news has changed me? In the past, I might have tried to link this spelling mishap to the Nats in the headline; today, I'll be fair. I'll also go one step further and post a...
