Alfred Morris came in at No. 10, behind D.C. United midfielder Andy Najar and Mystics Crystal Langhorne, which is a decision that I’m sure will be hotly debated by you Bog commenters. The entire list is here.
On a side note, I had a Twitter discussion with a few readers last night who weren’t familiar with Crystal Langhorne. She’s a Maryland product, four-time WNBA All-Star, and a starter for the Mystics. Granted, not many of you follow the WNBA (for various reasons, I’m sure), obviously we’ve overlooked a few local athletes.
I’ll remedy that next season. Not that I expect you all to suddenly become WNBA fans, but at least you’ll know their names.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER
* There is little hope for a full NHL season at this point.
* Robert Griffin III is feeling no added pressure, despite defensive problems and mounting injuries.
* Jason Reid says that RGIII isn’t even close to reaching his potential.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Cartier Martin on the Wizards practices:
“It’s been really competitive practices. Guys have been fighting for positions and scrapping out here. We want to be a good team. So, everybody is trying to make each other better right now.”
HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT
The Wizards beat LeBron and the Heat. I know it’s the preseason, but Wizards winning is good.
WHAT TO WATCH TODAY
World Series Game 2: Detroit at San Francisco, 8 p.m. on Fox. ALL TV/Radio listings here.
SPEAKING OF THE WORLD SERIES
If you see Panda trending on Twitter, it has nothing to do with the zoo. Pablo Sandoval hit three homeruns in last night’s game, joining a small list of people to hit as many in a World Series Game. Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols, and now Panda.
