D.C. Sports Bog: November 7, 2010 - November 13, 2010

Shanahan calls Mortensen report "totally untrue"

On Tuesday, Donovan McNabb was asked about the Chris Mortensen report that the Shanahans had to cut their playbook in half for him. "That is hilarious to me," McNabb said. Mike Shanahan isn't laughing. When Comcast SportsNet's Kelli Johnson directly asked Shanahan about that Chris Mortensen report, the coach fired...

Trent Cole: McNabb not difficult to defend

(AP Photo - Michael Perez) Now that all those wars of words about Donovan McNabb's last game have started to die down, it's time to move on to the next thing: wars of words about Donovan McNabb's next game. To help us along, here's Eagles defensive end Trent Cole,...

Cowherd on fathers and leadership

I know it's reprehensible of me to continue giving free publicity to a publicity-hungry sports-talk radio yahoo, but I do this for two reasons. 1) When Colin Cowherd maligned John Wall's leadership potential due to his deceased father on Thursday, some people thought that's not really what he meant. On...

The Shanahan-McNabb song

Black Boo offers what I believe is the first musical take on the Donovan McNabb benching, via his weekly offering for Big Tigger. The front man from Mambo Sauce -- riffing off Willie Hutch's "I Choose You" and Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You) -- eventually puts his trust...

Ovechkin scores, Caps fan does John Wall Dance

A dear friend and trusted mentor of mine has suggested that D.C. sports fans simply do not care when sports stars, pop culture icons or random citizens perform the John Wall Dance. He thinks I am actually the only person who cares about this. That may be. Nonetheless, the...
