Update: Did T.O. attempt suicide?
The Wizards will introduce an alternate road jersey (black and gold?). But the lede is conference finals, conference finals, and conference finals. (Tom Knott says 50 wins are within reach, SI says Blatche could help.)
One columnist says the suspended Hokies should have known better; another says the suspensions are a step in the right direction. Beamer defends his players, indiscretions supposedly make him squirm, and he calls his clean-up a work in progress. (Also, WR David Clowney says he's playing this week.) The Cavs are tired of pep talks; bad news when Duke is a must-win. At least fans aren't relieving themselves in the bleachers.
The Nats shrug off their trainwreck, and Bruce Chen could become the eighth pitcher since 1900 to pitch 100 innings without a win. Mets fans in Norfolk are brokenhearted about the O's arrival (contrast with euphoria about the Yankees in Scranton.) The Caps' game didn't show up on the Web and fans get salty. (Plus, they missed Ovechkin fighting.) And bet on Temple while you can.
