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 knishes in place in time for Write Nothing But Good Things About the Nats Week, so I can't complain. If ever there was a press release that deserved long block quotes, this is it:

Teddy's Barbeque, operated by Levy Restaurants, will serve authentic Carolina-style barbeque including a beef brisket sandwich, BBQ pulled pork sandwich and pulled chicken sandwich. The stand will feature the newest signature item at Nationals Park, the Rough Rider Rib. The jumbo beef short rib is brined for 12 hours in true Carolina fashion, sealing in all the flavors of the meat. The dish is then slow-smoked for an additional 12 hours to further enhance its flavor....

The long-awaited opening of the Nationals Park Kosher Stand will occur on Sunday, June 21, with the debut of The Kosher Grill, operated by local vendor Max's Kosher Cafe in conjunction with Levy Restaurants....The Kosher Grill will serve Kosher hot dogs, sausage, falafel, knishes and schwarma, Sundays through Thursdays.

The way I see it, they're now just one good kasha stand away from respectability.

* Alex Ovechkin, on whether he gets along with fellow Hart finalists Malkin and Datsyuk: "No, not along," he said. "I talk to Datsyuk, but not with Malkin." Alex Ovechkin, on Crosby: ""I don't want to talk about it, about him." And this is in June. (Las Vegas Review Journal)

* I just talked to an ESPN spokesman about the D.C. United/CWS issue last night. He called it an "unfortunate" confluence of events, including a contractually obliged re-airing of the 2008 U.S. Open on ESPN Classic, adding that "generally it's a company policy that we stay with live events throughout their completion. If we're showing soccer and soccer runs late, we'd also stay with soccer."

* Larry Coker talks about Sean Taylor, saying he could have played linebacker, safety or running back at Miami (Hogs Haven)

* Favre-to-D.C. is either a rumor or "baseless speculation." Said originator Mike Florio: "yes, it was speculation. but based on favre's history and snyder's history and the current circumstances in washington, i don't think it was 'baseless.' " (Mister Irrelevant) (More from The Redskins Blog)

* Antawn Jamison is building more playgrounds. (KaBOOM!)

* Caron Butler can match plaid brown ties with plaid brown shirts better than I could. (The Wiz)

FAIL. There is nothing "carolina style" about beef brisket . . .

What about ESPNU which was showing US-Italy or even ESPNews?

Sorry MLS fans but that was an amazing CWS game last night. If ESPN had left the game in extra innings they would have field way more angry phone calls from around the nation then they are now from a few angry United fans.

Any biayls in the offing?

Most weren't calling for ESPN to leave the CWS game, bigcountry22. They wanted the match to be shown on another network as they normally do. I understand there are obligations on the networks and that they had to show Tiger Woods on ESPN Classic, but they have also been known to show live programming on ESPNews when there are no other available networks. It sucked for soccer fans even more since ESPNU was showing a replay of Italy-USA from Monday.
I've said it before, but that wasn't a good game. It had plenty of drama and kept people watching, but the play was poor. Arkansas didn't look like they belonged at all and UVA was horrible fielding and with base running at times.

Notice To Nat Fans. I have eaten at the New York Stadiums(most recently Yankee Stadium) and the food at Nats Park is 200% better. Lousy Hot Dogs, 3rd rate pretzels and a flat soda.

How about Bialystock and Blo-om? Sorry, couldn't resist.
