  • Nationals Represent at the All-Star Game


    With Gio Gonzalez, Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg sporting their gray road uniforms, Washington had three representatives in the 2012 MLB All-Star game tonight in Kansas City. Four if you count shortstop Ian Desmond, who backed out due to an oblique injury. No matter how you add it up, this season has produced the most mid-summer ambassadors for the Nationals since the mid-90′s Montreal Expos franchise. Read the rest of this entry »

    Nationals Turn Back the Clock with a Comeback


    As each week goes by, a playoff berth is looking more and more realistic for the Washington Nationals.

    The pessimistic D.C. sports fan in me always errs on the side of caution when it comes to expecting postseason production out of the local teams. For the past two decades, the Redskins average one playoff appearance every four years. The Capitals have turned second round playoff appearances into a common occurrence over the past five years. Advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals has been another task altogether. The Wizards had a good run by tinkering with the first round several times in the mid-2000′s prior to Gilbert Arenas’ firearm catastrophe. D.C. United has been Washington’s most successful pro sports franchise since their inception in 1996 but given the level of popularity of soccer in the area in contrast to the “big four” sports, that success doesn’t resonate quite like the rest.

    Interview with Texans running back Ben Tate


    This summer, I’ve been given the opportunity to write a piece for What’s Up? Annapolis Magazine to profile local athletes from Anne Arundel County (my home county) and Maryland’s Eastern Shore who have made it to the professional level.

    I’ve been trying to kick it into second gear and actually talk to some of these players.

    Fortunately, some have been receptive, including Houston Texans running back Ben Tate, who grew up on the Eastern Shore.

    I had the chance to talk to him on Thursday. Most of the conversation centered around his time growing up in Salisbury and going to school in Berlin, Md. and how it helped him get to where he’s at now. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Unveil Throwback Uniforms For 2012


    This afternoon, the Washington Redskins unveiled a tribute to the past with a pinch of modernity in their new uniforms that are set to be worn twice at FedEx Field this season in conjunction with their 80th Anniversary. In what is supposed to replicate their 1937 uniforms, the Redskins put a twist on what was used during the 1994 season.

    Photo Gallery: Kevin Mitchell (1971-2007)


    During his time as a Redskin, I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Mitchell on many occasions. Not once was he ever unpleasant to talk to or interact with. Win or lose, he always flashed his trademark smile for everyone to see.

    To help commemorate the fifth anniversary of his passing, I have put together this gallery of various photos that have never been seen by the media. If you never had the chance to meet him, hopefully these photos give you a clear view into his personality. Read the rest of this entry »
