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.

Here's who else has his own logo: Casey Rabach. Not many NFL centers can boast their own logo. Congrats to him, and to the Eagle Bank Bowl. More morning links, with help from Jake DiGregorio.

* Following the lead of Semyon Varlamov, Nick Young says he likes the women better in his hometown, because "DC is so cold that you can't really see everything about a girl." Also, he listens to Maroon 5. (D.C. Landing Strip)

* Gilbert Arenas remains SLAM's 34th-ranked player in the NBA, despite not actually playing. (SLAMOnline)

* Oberto didn't want to leave San Antonio. (Bullets Forever)

* Here's an entirely depressing story about Art Monk and Charles Mann that you should avoid if you don't like the sour taste if disillusion. (Cheap Seats Daily)

* Chris Samuels, when asked about Hunter Smith: "Who is Hunter Smith?" (Homer McFanboy)

* A Redskins cheerleader, when asked what position Clinton Portis plays: "Wide receiver?" (Hogs Haven)

* Sure enough, here are the Clinton Portis inspired Bombs Over Baghdad t-shirts. (McFanboy Shop)

* Verizon Fios ads make a Redskins blogger hate Verizon Fios. (Apu Redskins Blog)

* Jim Riggleman says the Nats aren't the worst team in baseball. Shows you how low the media's credibility is; now people don't even believe the standings. (Nats Journal)

* Old news today: The Nats hat is seen by some as a terrorist symbol. (WaPo via Deadspin, sadly)

* Dave Jageler hit the nail on the head on WFED about the Nationals loosing their already shaky footing. (Nats 320)

* Not that Stephen Strasburg isn't responsible, but the idea of an instructional leagues being hosted in a place like Wichita or Topeka is somewhat less nerve-racking than sending a barely 21-year-old down to Florida with millions of dollars in hand. (NESN)

* After an airplane delay, D.C. United stars play four square with a tennis ball in an airport. Kind of like those old World Cup ads. (Twitpic)

At least the DCSEC won't have to actually spend any money on RFK for the bowl game since you can still see the football lines from last year...

I also meant to mention, there is a problem with wearing green sports merchandise if the team's colors don't include green. I would have done much worse to him.
