Ok, fine, it’s just ANC commissioner Mike Silverstein, but still. That’s some bold trolling, sir.

World Series vs. football ratings in D.C.

The national ratings story for baseball vs. football was pretty well publicized this week, but in case you missed it.... On Sunday night, NBC's Steelers-Saints game drew an 11.8 national rating, while Fox's Giants-Rangers Game 4 drew a 10.4 rating. On Monday night, the script flipped, with Fox's Giants-Rangers Game...

CP on America's Next Top Model

I've been trying to find the footage of Clinton Portis's appearance on "America's Next Top Model" for more than a year, but to be honest, I wasn't trying all that hard. Finally, last night, someone e-mailed me the clip of Portis distracting his model as she tries to concentrate on...

Vegas's NFL Power Ratings
