D.C. Sports Bog Archive: Beer and Cheese

A guide to Verizon Center's beer

Beer snobs quickly pointed out that having Bud, Bud light, Bud Light Lime Limte, Bud Light Wheat, Bud Select 55, Michelob, Michelob Amber Bock, Michelob Light and Michelob Ultra is like...

Holy Hell: Bruce Boudreau Hates Cheese

I've always been partial to Bruce Boudreau, as both a coach and a media subject. As a coach, he's honest and he wins. As a media subject, he's cooperative, funny, smart, quotable, and unique. But then things went sour faster than fresh ricotta in the back seat of a...

Getting Meta With Scorpions on Sticks

Sampling Yak Cheese at the Olympics

Mary Carillo samples yak cheese with Ritz cracker. The L.A. Times's Bill Plaschke has already eaten animal penis at these Games. NBC's Mary Carillo has already filmed a package on sampling scorpions and seahorses on sticks. But, as far as I know, I was the first American sportswriter to...
