D.C. Sports Bog: July 25, 2010 - July 31, 2010

Darnell Dockett mocks Haynesworth again

You know who seems to be a massive consumer of Albert Haynesworth news? Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowler Darnell Dockett. He can't get enough of the stuff. Insatiable appetite. And with each new development in the saga, Dockett gleefully batters Haynesworth around the head and belly area with extreme mockery. This...

Reporters attempt Haynesworth's conditioning test

Great idea for a TV sports gimmick that at least two stations thought of this week: have an on-air reporter attempt the Albert Haynesworth conditioning test, and then show video of the hilarious results, complete with the flashing stop-watch. Fox 5's Lindsay Murphy gave it a whirl (above), and...

Some beat changes in sports

Most of this is probably no longer news to anyone, but here is Thursday's WaPo memo from sports editor Matt Vita announcing some beat changes in the sports department. Tarik El-Bashir has written about moving on from the Caps on his own blog, and I'm sure we'll hear from the...

I mean, these are the D.C. sports talk radio wars in the grumpy heat of late July we've all been waiting for. Need more pointy elbows, everyone. Rising spittle lifts all boats. Thursday, Daniel Snyder gave an exclusive interview...

Albert Haynesworth pictures OMG!!1!1!

After months of writing about, listening about, reading about, obsessing about, thinking about, dreaming about, conjecturing about, noodling about, whispering about, shouting about, and remaking the world with the name, image, likeness, and Platonic ideal of Albert Haynesworth, the defensive tackle had ceased to be flesh and blood, instead...

Dan Snyder speaks on first day of training camp

Amazing, and completely unrelated photo by John McDonnell - TWP On the first day of training camp, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder sat down for about a four-minute interview with Redskins employees Larry Michael and Larry Weisman on ESPN 980, which of course is owned by Red Zebra, one of...

When Sean Salisbury fought Albert Haynesworth

(Via @RedskinsBlog) And so the Albert Haynesworth farce drags on for another day, with another priceless term -- "lavatory break" -- added to the offseason glossary. Of course, all these reports were via unnamed sources, which makes them my favorite leaks of all time. And why am I not...

The rain at Redskins Park

I could pull Web traffic statistics, TV ratings, reader surveys, attendance numbers, merchandise figures and Q rating scores from now until September, and then write 109,274 words about how important the Redskins are to the Washington sports scene. Alternatively, I could present this, via NBC Washington. It's 82 102...

Stephen A. Smith wants Haynesworth crucified

If Albert Haynesworth shows up to Redskins training camp in fine enough shape and doesn't complain and apologizes to his teammates, an entire cottage industry of blog posts will be gone. So, before then, let's get in some final shots. Stephen A. Smith, care to help? Mike Shanahan would be...

Jim Bunning mocks Stephen Strasburg

(Via @Jeff_Foust.) Anonymous Internet comments aren't always the best source of dispassionate wisdom, and so it's been with this week's scratched Stephen Strasburg start. In my random perusals of the Internet's finest stuff about Tuesday's aborted 10th Day of Strasmas, I've seen people fault the Nationals, Washington baseball fans,...

The fans and Strasburg's scratched start

(Via @DCUniverse.) There were multiple reports of unhappy fans at Tuesday night's non-start by Stephen Strasburg, especially before the sold-out crowd understood why they were getting Miss Iowa instead of Miss Universe. People e-mailed me tales of (at least a few) fans leaving early, and at least one fan...

Redskins ninth in secondary ticket prices

(Via @HogsHaven) My friend Dave McKenna has asked whether "we're the new Jacksonville," referring to various signs of decreased demand for Redskins' season tickets. It's an interesting question, for sure. And yet when FanSnap -- a company which surveys various secondary market ticket sellers -- put together a list...

Max Talbot calls Alex Ovechkin a bad word

At 2:24 p.m. or thereabouts on Tuesday, the NHL sent out a press release about the league's "hottest rivalry." I think sports writers and the general public could normally be forgiven for casting a cynical eye at press-released claims of a hot hockey rivalry that are made in late July....

The food at Verizon Center

Dueling Verizon Center food stories over the past few day. First Ted Leonsis posted a blog item about changes to the VIP seating sections at the Phonebooth, which included a mailing that went out advertising VIP full season ticket packages. Among the benefits (which also include VIP parking and...

Nats TV ratings no longer last

It's been a season of mild progress for the Nats. Their record is bad but no longer terrible, their attendance is middling but not embarrassing, and they finally have more than one genuine actual Major League Baseball superstar. And for Internet jokesters like me, here's even more mildly awesome progress:...
