(courtesy photo) Sorry for the lack of content this week. My schedule has been fairly hectic, but with Redskins training camp right around the corner, it’s a safe bet that I’ll be back in action next week. In the meantime, here are a few links to tide you over: The Washington Capitals are in the news this week and it’s for all the right reasons. The Caps donated equipment to the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program and then hosted a […]

(courtesy photo) The new-look Washington Wizards will take the court tonight at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but it looks like one of the new guys might not see action. Word is that forward Drew Gooden, the guy who has been on eight teams in eight seasons, would like to negotiate a buy-out of his contract so he could go to a team that might win something. Speaking of the big trade: the Dallas Mavericks were 17-2 against the Oklahoma […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) Washington Redskins middle linebacker London Fletcher is playing the best football of his career, according to defensive coordinator Greg Blache. This is noteworthy for two reasons: Fletcher is a 12-year veteran and Blache doesn’t speak with the media anymore. In addition to his current defensive coordinator, Fletcher also received support from Matt Bowen, a former teammate. For a person who doesn’t speak with the media, Blache is actually in the news a bunch this week. He […]

The massive defensive tackle was voted the league’s strongest player in a Sports Illustrated […]

And because we know you’d much rather spend your time at work surfing the net than actually being productive, here’s what we’re reading this morning: Our buddy Dan Steinberg usually leads the pack when it comes to quality content. Unfortunately, his latest work feels more like a sucker punch than anything else as he tackles the long-standing myth that Andre the Giant once […]

Just in case you missed it, here’s what we’re reading this morning: Earlier this year, we sat down with Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee to talk about what it takes to build a winner. Well, the guys at Hogs Haven have one-upped us. They’ve tracked down Caps owner Ted Leonsis, who was kind enough to share his 10-point rebuilding plan with them […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) Believe it or not, but some high-quality reading actually comes from outside of Homer McFanboy. Just in case you missed it, here’s some of what caught our attention this week: Redskins blogger Matt Terl thinks it’s a good idea to give Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot some additional exposure (apparently he’s not familiar with Smoot’s time in Minnesota). Either way, Terl is pushing for fans to vote for Fred in the NFL’s Super Ad campaign. If Smoot […]
