Washington Wizards center Jason Collins yesterday announced, “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.” First of all, it is pretty obvious that he is black, so I’m puzzled as to why he had to tell people that. Second of all, I really don’t need to know what people do with their private… More Jason Collins Is Gay? Yawn. Who Cares? He’s A Crummy Basketball Player.

Separated by only 15 months, older brother John Harbaugh, age 50, will coach the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, while younger brother Jim Harbaugh, age 49, will coach the San Francisco 49ers. Early odds are on the Niners… More The Harbaugh Bowl is On!
Earlier today RGIII had surgery to repair a torn LCL and ACL. The Redskins have issued no statements leaving sport’s writers and others to speculate on when RGIII might be able to return to play football. The Washington Post compares his surgery to that of Viking’s running back, Adrian Peterson, who recovered quickly from a… More Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III has surgery to repair torn LCL and ACL. Was it bad Karma?
It’s looking more and more unlikely. Several news reports, including here, here and here, are reporting that Robert Griffin III has torn his ACL and LCL. Coach Mike Shanahan is not saying what the MRI has shown, because he’s hoping for a miracle. RGIII will get a second opinion today with another well known orthopedic surgeon,… More With injuries to his LCL and ACL, how bad is Robert Griffin III hurt? Will RGIII ever play football again?
You hosted and feted Barack Obama. Alabama rejected him twice. “Mysterious ways” my ass. Sincerely, God
It seems all of America wants the Redskins to beat Dallas on Sunday night at Fed Ex field. I’m calling this “the love of RGIII factor”. The whole nation loves our rookie quarterback. In an ESPN poll, of 200,000 football fans the results show 73% of the country wants the Redskins to win.… More The Washington Redskins—America’s Team!
Good news for Washington Redskins fans! Robert Griffin III has a mild knee sprain, grade 1, to his LCL, not his ACL. RGIII may be able to play in Sunday’s game. According to his father, RG intends to play on Sunday. Everyone in Washington may now resume breathing. The Best and the Worst of yesterday’s… More RGIII Injury is Mild, may play on Sunday against Cleveland

Everyone is talking about Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher who murdered his girlfriend this weekend before he killed himself. Then there’s NBC’s Bob Costas turning this into an anti-gun crusade (never mind that O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole was murdered with a knife.) Not many people are picking up on the aspect of Belcher’s girlfriend also… More Football, Kids and Marriage
Let me be blunt: the NBA has no business demanding teams set their rosters as David Stern sees fit. Every fan (and I say this because David Stern claims to have acted in the fans’ name when he fined the Spurs because Coach Greg Popovich rested his older star players instead of flying them to… More David Stern went too far
After nearly 60 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Maryland, one of the original teams in the AC, will move to the Big Ten. As if my team didn’t have enough problems winning football games, we will now have to face such teams as Michigan, Michigan state and Ohio State. Penn State is also in the Big… More Maryland moves to the Big Ten
InsideNOVA is first to report that the proposed new stadium for the Potomac Nationals in Woodbridge would include a VDOT commuter parking lot. This is a great idea to incorporate that into the plans and would more than make up for the parking spaces lost at Potomac Mills as a result of its expansion. We’ll keep… More New Stadium To Include Commuter Lot; Woodbridge Supervisor Opposed The Move, Called It “Hot Dog Jobs”

Just over a week ago, being a Knick fan was its usual torture: the team was 8-15; Amare and Carmelo were vying to control an offense neither is equipped to run (that’s why teams have point guards); and it looked like yet another season was ready to be written off. Now the team is at… More Yes, I’m all-Lin
So choice… Makes you wonder if this will finally get that Ferris Bueller sequel made.

Congrats to the Boston Bruins who just won the Stanley Cup and are the NHL champions!
The now-former President/GM of the Knicks has left under a “mutual decision.” Is Isaiah Thomas coming back? Please God, I hope not. Cross-posted to the right-wing liberal UPDATE: ESPN-1050 (NYC) is saying Walsh was asked to take a 40% pay cut. Sounds like a railroad job to me. I should have known this season was… More Donnie Walsh is out
I’ll be honest, the Knick loss hurt, but no other sport has the linguistic creativity of the Association. Find me an NFL, MLB, or NHL writer who can match Stephen A. Smith when he pens lines like this (ESPN): But if someone told you the Knicks would dominate seven-eighths of this game, that they would… More Reason #48576 why I love the NBA
For the first time in ten years, the New York Knicks have a winning season. For those of us used to the tragedy that has been Knick basketball, this is the real sign that they have turned the corner (the East has been weak enough to see several sub-.500 teams make the playoffs, including the… More Winning!
