D.C. Sports Bog: September 13, 2009 - September 19, 2009

Orioles News on Reimold, Adam Duritz

Obviously I don't usually write about the Baltimore Orioles, but in light of the fact that I'll be spending much of today in Maryland DMV offices, I'll make an exception with two itesm. 1) The Orioles are mounting a campaign to back Nolan Reimold for AL Rookie of the...

Alex Ovechkin Turns 24

Alex Ovechkin turned 24 today. Among his presents were a shaving cream pie in the face from Alexander Semin, and a scheduled trip to see the Mystics open their playoff run against the Indiana Fever tonight at Comcast Center. And thus, if you're counting backward, Clinton Portis spent $200,000 and...

D.C.'s Most Unique Goalie Mask?

Earlier this month, Tarik El-Bashir brought you images of Semyon Varlamov's new mask. It prominently features Mount Rushmore. Now, I understand that presidents usually live in the District, and Mount Rushmore (except in Gilbert's version of the Black Mount Rushmore) features presidents, but it still seemed weird to mix...

Gilbert Gets Black Mount Rushmore Tattoos

Photo by Nick Friedell - ESPNChicago Just in case there was any question about whether the newly mature and leaderiffic Gilbert Arenas would become a less frequent source of news from the weird, ESPNChicago's Nick Friedell managed to take a look at some of Gil's newest tattoos. As you...

Portis: "Clinton Portis Can't Do Everything"

Both The Post and The Times ran stories this morning on Clinton Portis's unselfishness, and the way he's declined to call for more carries after the Week 1 loss. The topic was also raised on Portis's weekly appearance on the John Thompson Show Tuesday afternoon, and since there's no...

Holy Hell: Bruce Boudreau Hates Cheese

I've always been partial to Bruce Boudreau, as both a coach and a media subject. As a coach, he's honest and he wins. As a media subject, he's cooperative, funny, smart, quotable, and unique. But then things went sour faster than fresh ricotta in the back seat of a...

Morning Bog: DCember Rocks at RFK

This week, your favorite Mid-Atlantic college football bowl announced its '09 ad campaign: DCember Rocks at RFK. Get it, D.C.-ember? And also, "fans through the years have enjoyed RFK Stadium's legendary bouncy seats and rockin' stands for football and soccer games," according to the release. And baseball, I guess....

Malcolm Kelly Finally Freestyle Raps Again

Since Malcolm Kelly arrived in Washington, reporters have been begging him for more freestyle rap, like his famous post-Big-12-championship display. Kelly always says no. But when Mike Sellers asks, well, that's a different story. Sellers has his own segment on one of the 4,000 Redskins-produced weekly TV shows. This...

Brendan Morrison is a Survivor

New Caps center Brendan Morrison was in California surfing with ex-teammate Brad May during the offseason when May mentioned this idea he was working on. He wanted to join up with Les Stroud--the star of a Canadian outdoors show called Survivorman--to do an NHL-themed wilderness show, a takeoff of Stroud's...

Why Mike Miller's Living in Northeast

I've written about athletes living in D.C. before, and the list has always been disappointingly short. A few D.C. United players used to live in a group house in Northeast; not sure what the status of that is. Ben Olsen owns a rowhouse in Shaw. Donald Brashear used to live...

Jim Zorn Discusses His Popularity

Caps Sweep SneakerBall Awards

Tuesday night was SneakerBall, the black tie and sneakers gala that involves handing out D.C. sports awards, raising money for the Greater Washington Sports Alliance Foundation, posing for photos with mascots, drinking free beverages, and frantically searching under the dessert tables for your laptop bag while people in tuxedos...

Gilbert Arenas Says He's Now a Leader

There are plenty of things to love about the Washington Times's extensive interviews with Gilbert Arenas, but in light of Jason Campbell's comments this week about his vocal (if unseen) leadership, I thought Gilbert on being a leader was one of the real highlights. Let's quote: [Flip] Saunders demands a...

Jason Campbell Says He's a Leader, Dangit

(By John McDonnell - TWP) For the second time in a matter of months, the particularly vocal among us have been arguing that a key D.C. sports personality is not fiery enough as a leader. First, it was Manny Acta, who defended himself by saying that bluster isn't necessarily...

Skins Say They Should Be Blowing People Out

(By Evan Vucci - AP) In the past two hours, I chatted with Chris Cooley about the Redskins' offense, and listened to Clinton Portis chatting with John Thompson about the Redskins' offense. The Redskins' two offensive stars said the exact same thing: this team could be blowing people out....

Arlington Rap Guy Makes Skins Video

The Arlington Rap became something of a summer sensation, copping well over 800,000 views and even more blog posts. The creator--McLean-bred Remy Munasifi--turns out also to be something of a Redskins fan, and hence, Redskins: The Rap, debuting this weekend on Comcast SportsyNet. You can read more about Remy...

Fake Field Goal Joy

I'll hand it to Mike Wise; his dissection of the deeper meaning behind Jim Zorn's fake field goal attempt late in the first half seemed fairly apt. Let's quote Wise: That play did not have Sept. 13 written all over it. It looked like a gadget to be used...

Jacobs: Landry 'Should Have Been Smarter'

Landry attempts to make a big hit against the Giants. A year ago, LaRon Landry had a tough confrontation with Brandon Jacobs, and everybody talked about it. A year later, Landry faced a week of questions about that run-in. "[Forget] motivation, it's already on my mind," Landry told reporters...

Hall 'Couldn't Make a Play to Save My Life'

For much of the Redskins' loss to the Giants on Sunday, fans online were unleashing a steady stream of dissatisfaction in the direction of DeAngelo Hall. All the usual stuff: He was reverting to what he had done in Oakland, he was satisfied after getting the big contract, his...

Missed Tackles in Week One

There were plenty of things to complain about in the aftermath of the Redskins' 23-17 loss to the Giants, so for now I'll pick just one: the missed tackles. Seemed like there were an awful lot, including three on the Giants' first touchdown, the 30-yard pass to Mario Manningham....
