Ovechkin as a dancing monkey

Hey, it's Friday, and I've had a weird week. Here's a weird link. It involves some sort of animated monkey-like Alex Ovechkin figure dancing to disco music on what appears to be a Swedish Web site. If anyone can make anything of it, please do let me know. Thanks...

Gary Williams says Terps must unite

Maryland AD Kevin Anderson has managed to quickly become something of a lightning rod among Terps fans. Witness the comments on this blog item, for example. Gary Williams, though, thinks it's time for unity, something he says the Terps have long lacked. When asked about Anderson on the Junkies...

Whatever happened to the Capstronaut?

The NHL All-Star break is a nice place to take stock of the season to date. Who has surprised us? Who's disappointed us? Who signed sponsorship deals with global men's hygiene companies? Whose eyes bled on national television? What happened to that team that used to score six goals...

Ozzy Osbourne in a Caps jersey

(Courtesy Washington Capitals) You know who's good at getting celebrities involved with their franchise? The Washington Capitals. Just a few months after getting Tom Green to Unleash the Fury while wearing an actual Caps jersey, the game entertainment folks were at it again, throwing Ozzy Osbourne up on the...

Did Ovechkin dive?

Did Alex Ovechkin dive on Monday evening, as officials dinged him for? Did he embellish? Act? Sell it hard? Work his moves? Exaggerate? Hyperbolize? Overinflate? Perform? Play act? Feign? Misrepresent? Scam? Dunno. But those are a lot of synonyms. And it was all enough to earn an "Alex Ovechkin:...

Andray Blatche on being the new Gilbert Arenas

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) Andray Blatche enjoyed a few beautiful months last season where his potential sprouted like a crunchy emerald green pepper, suddenly fresh and full of life and flavor and double-doubles. And for those few beautiful months, everyone loved him. Sort of. Briefly. And now, the...

What are the odds the Wizards go 0-41 on the road?

I'm in Las Vegas, which has me thinking about odds. For example: what are the odds the Wizards would have uniform malfunctions during two consecutive games, starting with Mustafa Shakur's Salvation Army jersey top, and concluding with Kevin Seraphin's backwards shorts? I asked a Vegas sharp named Falstaff that question,...

Atlantic 11 Week 9: Georgetown. Your Town.

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) The most fascinating nugget from this week's Atlantic 11, being compiled live from Las Vegas, goes like this: entering Monday's action, no fewer than seven of our top teams had exactly five losses. Makes it hard to judge a poll, this parity does. But...

Wizards fans attempt trampoline dunks

Whether half of this is staged, or the whole thing is staged, I quite enjoyed it. I still don't really enjoy G-Man, though. I mean, he's a great dunker and all, but what is he, exactly? What's with those muscles? Why isn't he a Wizard? A dunking Wizard might be...

Gloria Friedgen on Maryland football

(By Jonathan Newton - TWP) When Randy Edsall was hired as Maryland's new football coach, he took pains to lay out his longstanding ties to the school. Here's an excerpt from The Post's next-day story: Edsall called the opportunity to become Maryland's football coach a "dream job." Donning a...

Mustafa Shakur's oversized jersey

I jump on one stinking flight to Las Vegas -- five stinking hours -- and wouldn't you know the Caps win, Ovechkin gets a hat trick, the Wizards beat the Celtics, and Mustafa Shakur shows up wearing a jersey he picked up from the YMCA's lost and found box....
