Haynesworth and Hannah Storm

So much for the media boycott. If you haven't heard by now, Albert Haynesworth spent some bit of time chatting with Hannah Storm after Wednesday's practice. Some of our beat-writing friends sent along photos from their Twitter accounts. Since it would seem that no bit of Haynesworthiana is too small to report, I figure I should put them here.

Thom Loverro, by the way, wasn't impressed. From his blog:

And what were ESPN's Hannah Storm and Prince Albert talking about Wednesday?

Brett Favre? Wardrobe? Weight loss?

Supposedly, the story goes that Queen Hannah wandered on the field as practice ended and yelled to Prince Albert that someone they apparently both know said hello.

Who was that? Sylvia Mena? (The allegedly pregnant stripper who is suing Prince Albert for $10 million). Tripp Smith? (Prince Albert's trainer who said that the prince "was going to open some eyes" with his condition at training camp).

As you can see, the media -- or, the rest of the media, at least -- waited out Storm for a chance to be declined by Haynesworth. The superstar lineman then signed autographs, as did Daniel Snyder. Wonder if anyone got the same football signed by both men.

Also pictured here: a message to Haynesworth from the Laytonsville Volunteer Fire Department, and The Post's new Haynesworth tracker clock thing.

Oh, and if you're going through reporter-doing-Haynesworth-test withdrawal, the Virginian-Pilot has you covered. Five employees tried it, and a couple of them passed, including a 47-year old sportswriter.

Meanwhile, Ndamukong Suh took and passed the Haynesworth test, with times of 65 and 67 seconds. And he weighs more than 300 pounds.

Seriously, F Thom Loverro. Dude is just jealous that Albert figured out a way to keep the weight off He's on the right here:

The first time I heard that loser on the radio I actually thought he was hearing impaired. It boggles the mind that someone with a voice like that (not to mention diction that would only make Brian Mitchell proud) would be paid to speak into a microphone.

Thom, spare us from your moralizing on Haynesworth. Glass houses, dude.

100% agree with everything TheFunBunch just said. Plus, great screen name bro. Old school...

Loverro should try wearing some gogo boots and see what it gets him. (Answer? TK suspended for another week.)

Fat Al's heart rate probably got higher talking to Hannah for that 12 1/2 minutes than it did for any of his feeble "Attempts" at passing the conditioning test.

Loverero is the best thing that ESPN 980 has. Really, he is the only person worth listening to on that station.

The biggest question is why would anyone want Snyder's autograph?
