D.C. Sports Bog: December 27, 2009 - January 2, 2010

Gilbert Arenas's fabulous day of Tweets

(By John McDonnell - TWP) This is how a normal celebrity handles the world of Twitter: They sign up for the social media site. They start sending out messages about their life, whether quirky or banal, insightful or mundane. They gather a number of followers proportionate to their wit,...

Washington Times sports section eulogies

Montage stolen. They don't need the Web traffic, right? Friday, for the first time in my life, I bought two copies of The Washington Times. (Well, actually a friend bought them for me, but same thing.) After everyone else has said goodbye to the section, I wanted to see...

Arenas gun story kicks off 2010

You could make a decent argument that 2009 was one of the worst years for D.C. sports in the past two decades. Yes, the Caps were fantastic, but the Redskins had one of their most embarrassing seasons in modern history, the Nats had their second straight 100-loss season, the...

CSN's 2009 blooper reel

Maybe this makes me an easy mark, but if you tell me there's a blooper reel featuring CSN's finest, I'm pretty much definitely going to make a post about it. I love all of these people. Dearly. Too much holiday cheer? Anyhow, please enjoy. And tell your kids to...

Norv Turner on Snyder and the Redskins

"I think we all know at some point, you're going to move on," Norv Turner said on the day he was fired from the Redskins. "It's time for me to move on." In advance of this weekend's Chargers-Redskins game, Turner did a conference call with the D.C. media on...

Top 10 D.C. sports busts of the decade

After nearly three weeks of your voting on the local athlete of the decade, here's my list. And yeah, I'm closing with busts, because in some sense this decade of D.C. sports was defined by the bust, which affected every major team. Indeed, the decade could be largely described...

Tough year for D.C.'s captains

With one obvious exception, this has been another poor year for D.C. pro sports. Why look, ESPN.com just used photos of Dan Snyder and Gilbert Arenas to illustrate its list of 2009's sports vampires. I have no idea what that means, but it seems bad. So I don't want to...

Goodbye to the Times sports section

"Baltimore-Washington might have dropped to 17th in the Sporting News' annual survey of sports towns, but cheer up, folks," Washington Times Sports columnist Dan Daly wrote a few years ago. "We're still comfortably ahead of Wappingers Falls, N.Y. (FYI: Wappingers Falls (No.347) is the home of the Hudson Valley Renegades...

Flip Saunders goes off

In the past three days, all three active D.C. pro sports teams lost at home, badly. The coaches responded differently. Some highlights. Jim Zorn: "I can't fault our guys for the try-hard on offense, but we just couldn't stand up to what they had going on defense....The guys that...

Sunday Night Football does the Caps

(Via @gunaxin) I'm a staunch member of the school that believes the Redskins' hold on D.C. is virtually unbreakable, and at least another half-decade of sustained mediocrity would be required to even threaten that hold. Still, the much-Tweeted-about dialog initiated by Al Michaels during the second half of the...
