Friday Bog: Skins stubs, and other images

This has been a spotty week, what with the sick child and all, so there were a lot of things I was supposed to mention and never did. The solution I've come up with is to throw as many things as possible into one giant post, and then go...

Penguins fans are excited!

Penguins fans seem pretty excited about their team, huh? These images are meant to combat the curse of recent injuries. There are more. (True story: I saw someone mention how the top two teams in the Eastern Conference were playing Saturday night, and I suddenly thought maybe I had...

Vegas thinks Skins in the running for Vick

Posted merely to move the Call for Atlantic 11 voters down on the screen, so people will stop e-mailing me.... Sadly, I forgot to listen to Inside The Red Zone With Vinny Cerrato on Friday morning, though Twitter updates make it sound like a good one. No opening monologue this...

A call for Atlantic 11 voters

(Photo by Don Petersen - AP; logo and editing by Ian Oland - Atlantic 11 Media) Apologies for the lack of radio transcriptions all day; having a sick daughter home from school four days in a row finally did me in,content-wise. But here's one thing I needed to do:...

Wizards make more height history

When I was watching Tuesday's loss to the Heat, I was thinking that it felt very much like the pre-Arenas era to me. It just felt more like the weirdly bad old days--when everything always went wrong, everyone always got hurt, the results were laughably awful and 9-20 was...

Riggins responds to critics

Apparently, John Riggins got the message that some people thought the dark heart business crossed a line. He responded to those critics at the beginning of Wednesday's episode of Ask Riggo on WTOP. He also said it would be the last time he addresses the matter. His words, which were...

Mark Rypien calls for healing, group hugs

(1992 photo by John McDonnell - TWP) "Gosh," Mark Rypien said Monday night, shortly after he arrived back in the D.C. area. "I just hope we can all get together, have a big group hug at the 50-yard line and get this thing back on track." And you know...

Sherman Smith: Betts will provide a spark

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Normally, when a transcendent superstar goes down with an injury, the coach-speak response is something like this: "Obviously, there's no way we can replace [Superstar], but we're all confident that [Superstar's backup] will be able to help us win until [Superstar] stops seeing multi-colored...

For D.C. sports, 26 = sign of the devil

(By Mark Finkenstaedt for The Post) As of this writing..... The Redskins record is 2-6 The Wizards record is also 2-6 Clinton Portis wears No. 26. He's concussed, and likely out for the week. D.C. United's Bryan Namoff wears No. 26. He missed the final month of the season...

Hall: Skins' response was "a little bit disheartening"

(By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) If you didn't hear LaVar Arrington's full-throated condemnation of the Redskins' defense Monday afternoon, it's worth a listen. He started off his show on 106.7 The Fan just screaming at the top of his lungs about the lack of heart when DeAngelo Hall...

Steelers fans do it again

(By Doug Pensinger - Getty) So a pleasantly surprising six-win team was hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers, on "Monday Night Football," around the season's mid-point. In front of a mixed crowd, the flailing home team lost by more than two touchdowns. And at the end, with nothing left for the...

Redskins take more body shots

The pinata continues to be bashed from every side. And it would appear that this trend isn't going to go away any time soon. * A new radio spot for American Service Center and Mercedes Benz of Alexandria has been playing on ESPN 980. You know, the station owned by...

Who calls 4th-down plays, and other silliness

Chatting at 11:30. Submit questions here. Five more things that are ridiculous. Just about, you know, life. 1. Here was Jim Zorn at his post-game press conference, when asked about the playcall on Ladell Betts's fourth-down touchdown run. "Really, the play designer of that was Stump Mitchell," he said, "and...

Theismann: 'I think Jim is a quarterback coach'

Joe Theismann and John Riggins haven't always agreed about matters burgundy and gold. Most recently, they disagreed last week, when Riggins said that owner Daniel Snyder is a bad guy with a dark heart, and Theismann disagreed, calling Riggins "way out of line," vindictive and "downright harsh" on the...

Sonny on Vinny: "He is tied to this thing"

(By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) Aside from keeping an eye on a few of the Redskins' younger prospects, the next eight weeks are about the future of the front office. There aren't too many people who could plausibly know what will actually happen, but there's nothing better to...

Inside the DeAngelo Hall sideline melee

I was standing on the concourse, about as far away from Sunday's sideline melee as possible, and my initial reaction was one of embarrassment. I mean, if you're going to lose badly, at least do it with class, right? That feeling only grew when I watched DeAngelo Hall's strong...

Burgundy Revolution travels to Atlanta

I was still a few blocks away from the Georgia Dome Sunday afternoon, when I ran into a middle-aged husband and wife from a very wealthy part of Fairfax County who had traveled to Atlanta to see their Redskins. Wendy, the wife, had designed a pair of custom T-shirts...
