What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

Eddie Jordan seems "almost too nice" to be an NBA coach, Songaila might miss all of November and beyond, Tom Knott takes more cheap shots at Etan Thomas, newly promoted Wiz assistant Mike O'Koren talks about his promotion and Bog friend Bullets Fever predicts 50 wins, way above Vegas's over-under. (Seriously, hop on that over.) Also, Ovechkin's leg

is "100 percent" after he was hit by a puck ("Russian machine never breaks!"), but Nick Rimando's ankle is not fine.

John Russell is really really really interested in the Nats job, and Nats ticket plans won't cost more this year. The Skins are not only bad, but also old, and their confidence in the Saunders offense has cooled, as has my interest in this trainwreck. (Blog boy Jack's has not.)

The Hokies defense is already, um, pleasantly confident again after "a major, major win" that put Va. Tech back in ACC championship game contention and had "experts" admitting they don't know anything. Aaron McFarling says it was all because of guts. (Seven times.) I say it was all because of the uniform change.

The Cavs encourage Cleveland businesses to leave their lights on during the opener against the Wiz (what energy crisis?), DCU midfielder Ben Olsen reads art magazines in his spare time while Gil draws stick figures, Bog friend Dave McKenna profiles the creator of that terrific Mark Brunell cartoon, and Bog friend David Betancourt whips Ovechkin on his Xbox. Way to represent, Dave.
