Afternoon Bog: Nats Bringing Kosher Back
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)
