An ugly win is still a win, right?

The Washington Redskins might have left town with a 16-3 victory, but it couldn’t have happened without a heavy dose of ineptitude from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Buccaneers’ offense up and down the field with relative ease, but drive after drive stalled due to self-inflicted errors. On a day when Tampa racked up 500 yards of total offense, they finished the game with more turnovers (four) than points (three). While “Fitzmagic” was the talk of […]

Injuries, mental mistakes prove costly as Redskins fall to Falcons

The Washington Redskins jumped out to an encouraging start to the 2018 season thanks in large part to stout defense and just enough offense. Unfortunately, on a day when the defense finally faltered, the offense was incapable of picking up the slack and the results weren’t pretty. Adding insult to literal injury, Sunday’s 38-14 blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons may have long-term ramifications as two more offensive linemen joined Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams on the injured list. At […]

Caps Fans Are Still Basking in Last Season’s Stanley Cup Victory

For 44 years, the Washington Capitals were consistently good enough to get their fans hopes up. As soon as those fans let their guard down, the team promptly self-destructed in the most soul-crushing way imaginable. Losing a quadruple-overtime playoff game—on Easter Sunday? Check. Being eliminated, time and time again by the Pittsburgh Penguins, their most hated rivals, rubbing ample amounts of salt in the wounds? Yep. Winning the President’s Trophy as the league’s best regular season team, just to blow […]

Redskins have no answers as Saints go marching on. And on.

All was right with the Washington Redskins after the steamrolled Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers during their Week 3 matchup. Sadly, one week later, it all came crashing down and it definitely hurt inside, even if Hulk Hogan was nowhere to be found. While things couldn’t have gone much worse for Washington, Drew Brees and friends had a night to remember — as the future Hall of Famer became the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards in dramatic […]

Nationals honor Jayson Worth, sweep Cubs

While the weather was anything but cooperative, the Washington Nationals still manage to make it a day to remember as they added outfielder Jayson Werth to their Ring of Honor and swept a doubleheader against the visiting Chicago Cubs. Ace Max Scherzer went the distance for his 17th win of the season in a 10-3 route to start the day and the dynamic duo of Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper went a combined three of five with three walks and […]

Greta Van Fleet

It’s been roughly a year since the last time I covered a Greta Van Fleet concert. Much has changed for the band during that time. For starters, they are no longer playing smaller venues, such as DC9. In fact, this time around they played back-to-back nights at the 9:30 Club — with both nights selling out in a matter of minutes. And clearly playing in front of larger crowds has only increased the confidence levels of the boys in the […]

Patience With Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld Is Running Low

For the first time in more than a quarter century, a professional sports franchise in one of the big four leagues located in Washington, D.C. brought home a championship. While a team needs an abundance of luck to accomplish such a remarkable feat, there’s more to it than that. Closing your eyes, crossing your fingers, and praying that some sort of divine intervention bails you out at the 11th hour doesn’t really constitute much of a plan. Unless, of course, if […]
