Washington Sports Wrap-up (week of 9/28)

It’s time for a little summary of what’s going on in the DMV this week.

Washington Capitals

The Caps opened up the season with a 4-1 win over Boston.

Washington Wizards

Flip Saunders gave the Wizards players t-shirts that say “Our Time” and an I-pod Touch with the 250 page playbook complete with diagrams and charts.  I think that’s pretty awesome.  Saunders seems to be highly organized and very creative.  Antwaan Jamison is definitely pumped about having the proven head coach.  Here’s an excerpt from an article by Michael Lee of The Washington Post,

“To me, those are the kinds of things that make a difference. There’s no excuse why you don’t know the plays,” said Jamison, adding that each iPod has an individual code to protect its contents in case it is lost or stolen. “That playbook is like one of those NFL playbooks, it goes on for days. [Saunders] incorporated things so quickly and you go right into it. His enthusiasm, attention to detail, he don’t play around. I like the overall concept of how we’re going to do things here.”

Oh yeah, and Saunders also apparently hired a hypnotist who used mind tricks to get Nick Young and Mike James to hop around, put their hands over a flame and danced.  Anyone know if we can get him to hypnotize the Wizards into playing defense?  Just a thought.

Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals

Walk Off- Grand Slam for the season finale at home.  Not bad, but the Washington Nationals still suck.

After so much optimism in the last 3/4 of the season, the Baltimore Orioles have lost 13 in a row and also still suck.

Washington Redskins

Where to begin?  Let’s start with something positive.  Hard to do with Washington Redskins? Try this on for size: London Fletcher is as inspiring and active off the football field as much as he is on it.  (I wonder if Nancy Pelosi knows her about her bump-in yet?)
