My reaction to the latest round of snow has been silent resignation. I don’t have enough energy left to complain any more. I just give my daughter her winter tights, spread salt over my living room rug, clean the snow off my car by lowering and raising the windows a lot, and get on with my life.
Others have reacted with anger, or disbelief; with disgust or confusion.
But John Riggins has used March’s final burst of winter to demonstrate, yet again, that he is way cooler than you.
As this endless winter has stretched on, the Redskins Hall of Famer just keeps thumbing his nose at the weather, in photographic form. I think he has a pretty good grasp of that medium.

GREIVIS ON GARY
One Terps all-timer offers congratulations to another.
Congrats to my friend/mentor/coach Gary Williams on his HOF induction. Love you coach! GW is one of the reason I met my goals and dreams.— Greivis Vasquez (@greivisvasquez) March 25, 2014
JOE MANDE GETS HIS
The man who first came up with “House of Guards” — which later wound up on a Wizards and Adidas T-shirt — finally got his reward, in the form of autographed Ricky Rubio sneakers. You need to come up with a good T-shirt slogan now.
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Marcin Gortat, comparing the Suns and the Wizards:
“They have that killer instinct every game,” Gortat said. “We only have that every third or fourth game we win in a row. We [don't two games in a row, then that third or fourth game, we get that killer instinct. But we’ve got to maintain it for 82 games. We got to play better. Bottom line, we got to play better."
HOUGH AT THE CAPS GAME
Celebrity Caps girlfriend Julianne Hough poses at Tuesday night's Caps game with the team's in-game host.
WERTH THE AUTHOR
Jayson Werth pens a piece on the meaning of Opening Day. Excerpt:
I know when I’m no longer involved in Opening Day as a player, it will be a sad day. It’s such a happy time, a festive day. It’s like a holiday for some people. It’s a baseball game, and I’m working that day. It’s a fun day for everybody with all the banners. I think when I don’t get to do it anymore, it will mean more, it will hurt more
