Local comic still making D.C. sports jokes

Back in June, I chatted briefly with Alycia Cooper, a Temple Hills comedian who advanced to the semi-finals of NBC's Last Comic Standing, partly on the strength of a joke about D.C. sports teams. Her bit had been taped in March, though, before the McNabb/Strasburg/Wall trio arrived to redeem us,...

(By Toni L. Sandys - TWP) It's been hardly more than a year since I compiled this list of D.C.'s longest-tenured athletes. There were 13 names on the list. With Gilbert Arenas's departure, only three names remain in D.C. Tough line of work, this pro sports business. From my...

The Mystics and their dogs

The Washington Mystics are 20-12. If they win their final two regular-season games, they'd still theoretically have a chance to finish with the top record in the WNBA's Eastern Conference. They'd also finish with a .647 winning percentage, which would be the second-best of any Washington professional basketball team...

John Wall at the Mystics game

Barely more than a week since Barack Obama sat courtside at a Mystics game, top overall draft pick John Wall did the same. Oh, and Andray Blatche, too. Forget We The Pizza; Mystics games are apparently the hippest spot in town. Plus, they have Papa John's Pizza, which just...

Obama and Ted Leonsis at the Mystics game
