Okay, so we posted an article first-thing Wednesday morning in which members of the Washington Redskins sounded off on running back Clinton Portis after growing tired of his constant need for attention.
Well, we had no clue how big it would become. It got picked up by the great Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. It was also picked up by ESPN’s insider service, which was amusing because it meant that because we don’t have a paid account, we couldn’t see the link to our own work. Then the story was linked on ProFootballTalk.com, which was funny because we ripped them earlier this week in our Joe Gibbs writeup.
But the kicker was when we were informed that because of the Portis story, we were voted the ‘site of the day’ for a show on ESPN2 called SportsNation. You can see a video of our moment in the spotlight above. If we’re being completely honest, this clip is awesome for one simple reason – Colin Cowherd is nowhere to be found (well, that and the fact that they said we have a totally “awesome name”).
The blowhard/attention whore who is usually the host of SportsNation must have been out Wednesday, because that’s definitely not him in the clip. The only rational explaination seems to be that this the closest thing to a perfect day we’ll ever see, so somebody must have done us a favor and kept the guy from ruining a very memorable occasion.
Most importantly, thanks to all of you who continue to support the site. It’s come a long way since day one, and hopefully will continue to grow and evolve as we search for the best way to bring fellow D.C. sports fans information on the teams we all know and love.
