Cavaliers prove too much for shorthanded Wizards

One day after the defending NBA champions visited the White House, the Cleveland Cavaliers remained in our nation’s capital to take on the Washington Wizards. While LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and friends are a tough enough opponent as it is, the Wizards faced the Cavs without the services of shooting guard Bradley Beal, who sat out the contest with a sore hamstring. Led by all star point guard John Wall, the Wizards actually managed to go toe-to-toe with the champs […]

caps complete their annual postseason meltdown

(photo by Greg Fiume) This is why we can’t have nice things. It really doesn’t matter which D.C. sports team you root for these days. They all end in heartbreak and disappointment. Long-time fans of the Washington Capitals know that this franchise has never really done well in the postseason. Whether we’re talking about multiple overtime games or going up three games to one in a series and being unable to finish off an opponent on the ropes, the Caps […]

10 thoughts on the wizards 96-94 loss to the kings

(photo by Brian Murphy) Monday night I headed to the Verizon Center to cheer on one of the local sports teams. As you might expect, that’s not all that unusual.

After an extended stay at the hospital, everyone is healthy, happy and (finally) … home. It’s going to take us a little while to get the hang of this whole “parenthood” thing, so please bear with me if a couple days go by in between posts. I promise, the new guy is worth the trouble. […]

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.

d.c. sports: state of the union address

(courtesy photo) Now that LeBron-a-thon is over and the rest of the sports world can return to some semblance of normalcy, I thought it would be appropriate to take a moment for an impromptu state of the union address for the D.C. sports scene. In no particular order, here are 10 thoughts on all of your favorite local sports franchises. 1. Strike while the iron is hot and trade Gilbert Arenas to Cleveland. Like, right this minute. Seriously. Do it. […]

wall ushers in a new day for wizards

(AP photo) “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day … and I’m feeling good.” – Michael Buble If you woke up Friday morning with that song in your head, it’s safe to assume you were tuned in to the NBA Draft last night as the Washington Wizards took their first step in the right direction by selecting Kentucky point guard John Wall with the top pick. Unlike Kwame Brown, the team’s last number-one overall selection, Wall can actually play. […]
