D.C. Sports Bog: August 9, 2009 - August 15, 2009

Second-Year Receiver Report Card

Not discouraged. (By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) Washington's trio of second-year receivers will continue to be one of the primary focuses of the preseason, and they delivered sort of mixed results against the Ravens. Malcolm Kelly, coming off an injury -plagued rookie year, had three catches for 25...

Redskins (Preseason) Uniform Fail (UPDATED)

Ok, Natinals, you're totally off the hook. And welcome to D.C., Mr. Bettis. Next step: finding another city to host that National Spelling Bee thing.... "I didn't know," running back Ladell Betts said after the game. "I don't think anybody noticed it until about midway through the first quarter....

What Not to Wear: Redskins Edition

The preseason is used for getting out the kinks, and never was that more evident than at last weekend's first-of-the-season scrimmage, when some indeterminate number of fans descended on Redskins Park, many in baffling uniform choices. Now, some of these are borderline acceptable and/or hilarious. Some are just strange....

Morning Bog: Flip Saunders Calls Out Mike Wise

Now that Mike Wise is a sports-radio jackal, he does things like attempt to rile up Shaquille O'Neal through the selective use of Flip Saunders quotes. Saunders was on Wise's show on 106.7 The Fan yesterday, and he appropriately called Wise out for his troublemaking. "Mike, hey, I'm gonna call...

NFLShop.com Offers Vick Skins Gear

Don't ask me what's going on here, but if you go to NFLshop.com and search for a LaRon Landry youth replica jersey, you get the above image. And if you click on the little Redskins jersey with the number 0 and the Vick name, you get the below image....

Smoot on the O Line and Wide Receivers

Let's see Vinny do this. (By Haraz N. Ghanbari - AP) Turns out Willie Harris isn't the only D.C. athlete unsure whether he needs to know what the fans are thinking. I told Fred Smoot the other day that fans were pretty concerned about his team's offensive line and...

DeAngelo Hall Flames the Raiders, Praises Campbell

Ecstatic to be here. (By John McDonnell - TWP) DeAngelo Hall hasn't been shy when talking about the Raiders since he got to D.C., repeatedly telling stories of chaos and dysfunction. But I don't think he's been as blunt as he was this morning during an appearance with Colin...

Beamer: "Michael Vick's a Good Person"

Frank Beamer was on the LaVar Arrington/Chad Dukes show this week, and, after talking about the Hokies, the inevitable question about Michael Vick was asked. "I'm pulling for him," Beamer said. "I talked with him a couple weeks ago, and told him once again, and he expressed it, he needs...

Ovechkin Makes Millionaire

First Gilbert Arenas and Agent Zero were an answer on Jeopardy, an answer that no one could solve in the form of a question. And now Alex Ovechkin has made it onto Millionaire, paired with a troika of Chekhov characters. What a great sports town this is....

Coughlin Asked Haynesworth to Do Wrong

Albert Haynesworth has been a man of relatively few words since he's arrived in D.C., but most of the words have been fairly captivating. He came through again for Newsday's Bob Glauber, who talked to the defensive tackle this week about how the Giants expressed interest in him during the...

Morning Bog: Another ST21 Tattoo

Earlier this week, I published a selection of Redskins tattoos spotted at Fan Appreciation Day. One reader, Amy, accurately pointed out that no females were represented, so she sent me these photos of her own Redskins tattoos. And many thanks for that. See another Taylor tat from reader Danny,...

Willie Harris is Off the Grid

Staying medium while celebrating a win. (By By Luis M. Alvarez - AP) At least once a week, an athlete or coach tells me that he doesn't read the newspapers, doesn't listen to sports radio, and tries to tune out the media buzz. Sometimes, I believe them. Sometimes, I...

Bugel coaching during minicamp. (By Joel Richardson - TWP) When Joe Bugel was a kid, he used to imagine himself as Jim Brown. But later, when it became clear that he wasn't a skill guy, he changed both his position and his role model. He even traded in his...

During minicamp. (By Joel Richardson - TWP) The D.C. sports radio debuts roll on this week, with Joe Theismann launching his show Friday morning following the preseason game in Baltimore. (He's also doing the TV for that game and for two other preseason contests with Mike Patrick.) Theismann and...

Darrell Green on the Secondary and the Playoffs

As long as I had Darrell Green on the phone to talk about the Hall of Fame and his Twitter explosion, I figured I should ask him about the Redskins. He's optimistic. That, after all, is why August was invented. "I have a personally good feeling about this," he told...

Darrell Green on Twitter, Skins Fans and Canton

Morning Bog: A Svelte Fridge

(By Steve Ruark - AP) Chatting at 11. Submit questions here. Something in the air 'round these parts. Mike Williams dropped about 108 pounds, and Ralph Friedgen shed about 105 and is praising his newfound flexibility. Together, that's 213 pounds, missing from the earth. I mean, that's just vanishing...

Chad Rinehart: From "Depressing" to "Swagger"

The spotlight has turned to Chad Rinehart a little bit earlier than we might have guessed this summer, with injuries on the offensive line forcing the second-year guy into first-team rotations at both guard and tackle. Joe Bugel said last week that he'd be comfortable with Rinehart as a starter,...

I'll post Fred Smoot's thoughts on the '09 Redskins roster in a few minutes, but just know that he's optimistic about some of the offseason additions, following his fat boy personnel theory. "Now we have a chance to contend," he said. "Now we have a chance to contend. It's...

Redskins Tattoos in the Crowd

With Kevin McCarthy, aka Redskins Tattoo Guy, always hanging around training camp, it's hard to seriously compete in the "Wackier Than Zorn at the Funhouse" tattoo category. But still, the mass numbers of Skins tattoos catches the eye, and makes you wonder about a lot of things. Things too...

If this isn't the weirdest thing you watch all day, you need to stop visiting those Mascot Appreciation video sites. Because this is pretty dang weird. It's called Buckhantz Island, and it's sort of a Wizznutzz fairy tale come to life. (Video from We're Off to See the Willards)...

Nats Weekend Features Double Cream Pie
