programming note

The Washington Capitals season has come and gone. Ditto for the Wizards. The Redskins are in the OTA portion of the offseason, which means we won’t have much to talk about on that front until training camp. The Nationals … well … the season, if not their bats, is in full swing. So with things relatively quiet on the homefront, I decided to sneak off for a week’s vacation in Hawaii (which may or may not have anything to do with my escapades in Richmond a week ago).

I’d like to say I’m sorry that there won’t be much to report here on Homer McFanboy for a week, but let’s be real – I’m drinking Mai Tais on the beach and enjoying the scenery. I even tried to catch a little bit of the Celtics-Cavaliers series yesterday, but the game was on at 3 p.m. here, and everyone knows that’s happy hour on the beach. Why should I watch LeBron cry because someone fouled him when I can send strawberry daiquiris to the cute chick at the end of the bar?

If you’re really hurting for your local coverage, then let me point you to the latest episode of Skinscast. John and I go toe-to-toe once and for all to prove he’s a twit and the media needs to remember what it was like to be young and away from home for the first time.

And to throw a bone to the jealous types who may not be thrilled that I’m sitting on a beach instead of patrolling the sidelines, I wanted to pass along a link to a story from the good guys over at Hog Heaven. Apparently some lucky fan is going to win a chance to go to Aruba to watch the Redskins Cheerleaders Calendar Photo Shoot. For the safety of everyone involved, little blondes need not apply.

Until next time …

    Ummm….There is still the collapse of the most dominate DC sports team of the last decade…DC UUUUUUNIIIITEEEEEDDDDD!!! I realize only United fans would get that and lord knows there aren’t many of us anymore…At any rate, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the fact that the cornerstone franchise in the MLS has seemingly traded away every decent player they had in the last three years and now sit at the bottom of the tables…And don’t give me that “Soccer isn’t a sport” stuff…If you went to a NASCAR race you can comment on “Futbol”. Love ya…
