D.C. Sports Bog: February 27, 2011 - March 5, 2011

David Gregory unleashes the fury

This is sober and respected NBC newsman David Gregory, screaming "Unleash the Fury" into a camera for the Caps. It's sort of hard to be sober when you're screaming "Unleash the Fury," though I guess that's the point. (Via The View From Here)...

Clinton Portis's first Redskins press conference

(Photos by Joel Richardson - TWP) Since Clinton Portis's first Redskins press conference pre-dated the blog era, I wanted to get the photographs and quotes out there, to help complete the historical record. From the AP, in what I can only assume the below photograph is illustrating: Clinton Portis...

Virginia man uses Caps jerseys to win lottery

Whenever I play the lottery, I always go with 2, 14, 17, 37 and 39. And I never win. Remarkable. Damn you, ex-number-of-David-Steckel./ But it turns out that instead of playing ex-Caps, I should have been playing Caps stars. Like Jimmy Smith of Alexandria, a heartwarming Reader's Digest story come...

George Mason's hair hits ESPN

Finally, ESPN had George Mason forward and noted fashion maven Ryan Pearson on to discuss the team's Pearson-inspired pledge not to cut its collective hairs until this 15-game winning streak ends. Dunno what took so long. "You're coming into practice with your grizzly-bear beard, got the Afro growing out,...

George Mason's band plays Rage, in the stands

Remember last week when I asked someone to get me video of the George Mason Green Machine playing its new Rage Against the Machine? Well, Bog friend @tomcblock complied, and less than a week later, the video has been viewed 500,000 times. How to explain this? Let's turn to...

Richmond's new Spider mascot search

"How many legs does a spider have? When the University's new mascot is unveiled, it will likely be back to eight." I mean, there is so much in the press release announcing Richmond's search for a new Spider mascot that I didn't know. For example, that "Spidey" -- an...

American University trick shots

The YouTube trickshot craze has finally reached our humble metropolis, as American's Joe Hill and Steve Luptak present Eagles Trick Shots. Someone at George Mason is getting awfully lazy. Speaking of, here's Seth Davis on Ryan Pearson: If George Mason does make the Final Four, Ryan Pearson's beard is...

Atlantic 11 Week 14: Mason triumphs

(By John McDonnell - AP) For the first 13 weeks of the 2010-2011 Atlantic 11, Georgetown was in first place. It was boring. It was predictable. It was tiresome. And it's over. On the strength of its nation-best 15-game winning streak, George Mason has finally toppled the Hoyas' hegemony....

Portis goes out with a [redacted]

(By Ricky Carioti - TWP) Clinton Portis's tenure in Washington will be remembered for many things: gutty playoff runs, ridiculous costumes, and spellbinding radio interviews, among others. It would be hard for him to lead a gutty playoff run or don a ridiculous costume on the day he was...

The time Bryce Harper tipped off a pitch

Here's how self-confident Bryce Harper is: at the age of 14, during an actual game, he tipped off his buddy that a fastball was coming, out of anger that his pitcher had shook him off. That's a 14-year old going all Crash Davis on some poor, unsuspecting middle-school pitcher....

D.C. United's Olsen's Army truck

The best Vinny Cerrato quote ever

Vinny Cerrato, ESPN, Outside the Lines, Feb. 25, Planet Earth. Host: "Vinny what did you find, running the Redskins, as the biggest mistake you could make weighing risk and reward?" Vinny Cerrato: "Well, the biggest mistake is to pay an older player...a lot of money who's, you know, 30 years...

Sports Illustrated on Ovechkin: A "Falling Star"

Time was, you could comfortably call Alex Ovechkin one of the two best hockey players in the world and no one would notice. To some segment of the casual sports fan, that's probably still the case. But eventually, even the casual sports fan is gonna notice stuff like this....

Here's Gary Williams sweating

The whole "Sweat Gary Sweat" thing is childish, cliched, immature, unoriginal, irrelevant, cheap, lame, boring, juvenile and crass. But it's also true that the man sweats a lot. This was what he looked like during his halftime interview on Sunday evening. The still image really doesn't do justice to...

Nick Young's crazy 360-degree layup

Say this for the 2010-2011 Wizards: they continue to produce amazing highlight-reel nudge-your-neighbor top plays. In losses. Whilst slouching toward the lottery. But still, Nick Young's 360-degree while-making-bleu-cheese eyes-closed-hands-tied reverse layup against the Mavericks on Saturday night was a beauty. "I look forward to seeing that on YouTube," Young...
