QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Josh Morgan, on Pierre Garcon being happy to practice:
“The smile on his face when he was going out there Monday, that just said it all, That’s sports. That’s what we do this for. People really love to play this game. It kills us when we can’t do something right. . . . When you really love the game, it’s in your heart. You can see. He’s still over there smiling.”

WHAT TO WATCH TONIGHT
Lots of college basketball again. All TV/Radio listings here.
Here’s a fun new tumblr called More Entertaining Than Wizards Games. It’s exactly what it sounds like. I’m waiting for someone to bring back DidTheWizardsWinLastNight.com.
GOOD DEED OF THE DAY
Nats Journal has info on what Steve Lombardozzi and his family are doing to help Sandy victims, and what you can do to pitch in.
At least for now. Hostess is shutting down operations with the intention to liquidate, which means the end of an era. Brands like Twinkies and Ho Hos will likely be purchased by another company. But what will become of Sno Balls and fruit pies? Ding dongs and zingers? Let our inner child mourn.
