D.C. Sports Bog: March 28, 2010 - April 3, 2010

Leonsis expresses unhappiness with officiating

Ted Leonsis's appearance on the Mike Wise Show Friday morning was mostly about the Wizards and his book and happiness, but there was a decent amount of Caps talk at the end. Among Leonsis's stronger statements, he just about guaranteed that Alex Ovechkin would win a championship in D.C. "Alex...

Cooley and Davis tricycles make SportsCenter

The Chris Cooley and Fred Davis tricycle race on ice during a Caps intermission came during my child-care break. That race making SportsCenter's Not Top 10, though, came after my return. So here the gents are, along with joyful circus music, cavorting on the frozen surface together. My daughter,...

Feinstein vs. the NCAA

John Feinstein has been a well-known opponent of NCAA tournament expansion. I'm on record thinking it's kind of an ok idea. But Feinstein is a lot more famous than me, and a lot more effective at his job. So when he attended the state-of-the-NCAA press conference on Thursday, he had...

Hugging Caps is a good luck charm

Combine a few factors -- beautiful weather, playoffs approaching, kids on Spring Break -- and there was a mad scene outside Kettler on Thursday afternoon. It was nuts when guys like David Steckel left; he was surrounded and tailed to his car. It was nuts when guys like Mike...

Alex Ovechkin's ride to practice

I got to Caps practice a few moments later than planned. Still, I saw a great parking space surprisingly close to the entrance of KCI. Then I realized that it wasn't really a full space. Then I realized why. Hey, if you've got it, you might as well flaunt...

Gone Babysittin'

Due to my daughter's pre-school being closed, this blog will be shuttered until Thursday morning or thereabouts. With any hope, no big D.C. sports news will break over this span, like the President throwing out the first pitch at the Nats home opener or anything like that. Wish me luck....
