What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 200 Words, Tuesday Morning

Today's Wizards questions: Will Tractor Traylor show up? Will Blatche crack the rotation? Is Gilbert really over the World Games blow-up? Has his D.C. house really been converted into a high-altitude hideout? Did he really get a tiger tattooed on his chest?

That Redskins win came in OT, right? A virtual tie? No matter. Now the offense is "Fast. Comfortable. Entertaining." Now, Redskins Park is "super happy" and filled with laughter. (No bunnies?) Now, "we're talking Super Bowl again." Now, Brunell has authored a "fairy-tale comeback." After that celebration penalty,

Portis says the NFL should employ robots (um, done) and a teammate calls the low-key Moss Man "the silent assassin."

The Nats have at least five offseason priorities, while the O's "don't know how much more losing [they] can take." Goofy Ovechkin gets a hole-in-one (check out his swing), the Caps won't say who's injured, the Barbers explain their million-dollar gift to UVA, former Hokie Bryan Randall joins the Buccaneers, former Cav Elton Brown joins the Knicks, and Cal Ripken might do broadcasting for TBS. Finally, Georgetown will liven up Midnight Madness with.....a rock-climbing wall. (Better than GW, which axed the whole event (registration). Meanwhile, ESPNU will broadcast from Mason.)
