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 […]

Bryce Harper electrifies hometown crowd in Home Run Derby win

With all eyes on D.C. for All Star weekend, Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper delivered the goods — winning the 2018 Home Run Derby in dramatic fashion. Harper started slowly in the final round, before heating up with nine homers in his final 50 seconds to edge out Chicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber with his final swing of the bat.

Max Scherzer is really good at baseball

Simply put, the Washington Nationals will take their chances against any opponent when Max Scherzer takes to the mound. And if that opponent happens to be the 21-51 Baltimore Orioles, so be it. Scherzer allowed two solo homers while striking out nine batters in seven innings, which was more than enough to seal the deal against one of Major League Baseball’s biggest doormats. Outfielder Juan Soto smashed a two-run double, newcomer Kelvin Herrera pitched a scoreless eighth inning and closer […]
