Blackhawks owner: Ovechkin had "an angry outburst"

Alex Ovechkin's hit on Brian Campbell remains polarizing more than a week later, and the reactions to the hit from hockey bigwigs continue to surprise. Don Cherry, for example, had only mildly harsh words for the Caps star. "Listen kids, never when a guy's kind of stumbling into the...

Kornheiser, Vecsey still obsessed with Wise

This was something I meant to write last week, but the snow scrambled my brain. You could argue that it's all so out-of-date that I shouldn't even bother, but I figure if Peter Vescey and Tony Kornheiser want the world to know they remain obsessed with Mike Wise, who am...

ESPN.com's Tailgate Reporter

So this ESPN.com guy is traveling around the country doing a tailgating video from each MNF site. I'm sitting in the Commissioner of Tailgating's RV, borrowing his juice, and I had to watch this ESPN.com guy interview the commissioner in faux-serious style. There's really nothing like watching Internet video magic...

Prostate News and Joey T

Prostate health is very important, and I don't ever want to joke about it for fear that karma would then decide to smite my prostate. That being said, the D.C. area appears to lead the league in sports-celebrity-prostate warnings. If you recall, Karl Hobbs and the GW men's basketball coaching...

Watch Blog Show XXI

Blog Show, my modest contribution to the new and improved and slimmed down and all around much sexier Washington Post Live, will make its Tuesday debut later this afternoon. My blogging cohort, Mister Irrelevant, and I are much, much pithier on Tuesdays. Topics discussed are the demise of mgoblog,...

Another Vacation? Seriously?

Sorry, but I have all this genuine Washington Post issued vacation time that will disappear if I don't use it this month. I'm off this week. Some powers-that-be were unsure about continuing the Guest Bogger experiment, so this space will be dark for one and only one more week. Aug....

Why Sports Are Stupid

Did you see the massive USA Today A-1 headline screaming out from the newspaper boxes all weekend? "For these QBs, it's win now ... or else." Seriously man, win now or else life as we know it will end. (Eduardo Munoz - Reuters) In large letters, letting readers now that...

Tony Kornheiser as a Youngster

Since this will assure me at least seven or eight hits from WaPo editors, here's yesterday's FanHaus-uncovered 22-year-old clip of Tony Kornheiser, Larry King and some other guys talking about the Redskins. It's basically a Reagan Administration "Around the Horn," without the sound effects and the insane screaming. I don't...

Tony Kornheiser Rips Washington Post Live

Or, WashingtonPost.com writer presents Washington Post Radio transcript of Washington Post columnist trashing Washington Post Television. Ask yourself, is it really possible to have too much Washington Post in your lives? Never. Look! Someone who doesn't work for The Washington Post! (On the right.) (Jim Mone - AP) As you...

Fulfilling my contractual obligations, I'd ask you to kindly tune in to Comcast SportsyNet around 6 p.m. tonight, or to its streaming cousin on this very Web site, to watch the glory that will be Blog Show XII, featuring contributions (read: stolen material) from such made-for-TV blogs as Digital Headbutt,...
