Combine Thanksgiving with a win, and you can get a feel-good story about anything. And thus, Albert Haynesworth's appearance on Tuesday night's episode of TBD's Parker and Parker felt good.

Macho Harris goes from flag football to Redskins

(By Preston Keres - TWP) New Redskins safety Macho Harris played 15 games with the Eagles last season, but after being cut at the end of training camp, he was out of organized football this fall. That wasn't an easy transition. "Just watching these past 10 weeks, watching these...

Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young, happy

Try to watch this video of a happy Gilbert Arenas joined by a happy, hatted Nick Young without smiling. 'Tis impossible. "Hey, my man, I want to say thank you," Young says, interrupting the interview abd referring to the pass that led to his game-winning three. "No problem, any...

LaRon Landry on turkeys, D.C. and his injury

There are a lot of community-service type events involving pro athletes this time of year, and it's impossible to get to all of them. On Tuesday alone, there were at least three Turkey-themed Redskins events, in three different locations. But a few things convinced me to head to LaRon...

Ryan Zimmerman's wedding dance video

After years of being fairly boring in public, Ryan Zimmerman virtually flaunted his sense of humor last season, with ridiculous radio ads and ridiculous TV ads, not to mention strongly worded declarations about the future of the Nats. None of that, though, comes close to his dance routine at...

Capitals must pick up their socks

(By Bruce Bennett - Getty) I think Bruce Boudreau put it best, when he was asked about the Caps' unsightly Monday night loss: "We all have to pick up our socks and find out what's gone wrong in these last three games," he said. "You go 8-0-1 and then...

Which Monday night blowout was worse

After the Capitals got worked over by the Devils on Monday night -- that would be the next-to-last-in-the-NHL Devils -- some fans began asking Chad Dukes to disgorge a rant upon D.C.'s hockey team. "Completely different situation," Dukes responded on Twitter. "Ted is not taking advantage of fan loyalty....

Atlantic 11 Week 2: Georgetown Remains on top

(By Jim R. Bounds - AP) One thing you always learn by tending to the several dozen Atlantic 11 voters: Democracy is so overrated. Either that, or my form for voting on the best men's basketball teams in the District, Maryland and Virginia is too hard to use. Georgetown...

HBO's Caps-Penguins preview: Six highlights

The HBO 24/7 Caps-Penguins preview ran on Saturday night, and I figured I could wait until Monday morning to post my reactions. Instead, every hockey blog in existence went ahead and posted the entire 12-minute clip. You can watch it on Caps Insider, but I'll push on with providing...

These weird Redskins and the 20-point mark

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) The Redskins have been playing pro football for 79 years. And I'm going to go ahead and say that the 2010 results are the weirdest in franchise history. As Brian Mitchell pointed out on Comcast SportsNet's post-game coverage Sunday evening, this year's Redskins are...
