Musings of a (D.C.) Sports Nut

If I want to talk about sports in general, here's the place!!

Bored, on a Sunday night

     After watching the Wizards demolish the Celtics (& tie up their series at 2 apiece), I remembered I actually have a sports blog on here. So…for the first time in quite some time, here goes.

Braden Holtby

The NEW backup for the Caps?

Nice of both the Wizards and Caps to suddenly show up in the playoffs…WHEN IT FRICKING MATTERS!!! Nothing like having the sports fan base in the DMV hit panic mode, and then suddenly get their head(s) in the game.

Then again, they are playing rivals here in the 2nd round—for the Caps, it’s the Penguins; the Wiz have the Celtics—and to say both series aren’t lacking in intensity would be an understatement. But, DC sports fans have been down this road before: Dive into the toilet in the postseason seems to be the case these past few years.

(Man, I forgot I even had this picture…lol)

Anyway, can’t keep my thoughts together right now, so I’ll go ahead and post this. Enjoy, and let’s hope both the Wiz & Caps move on. (Although I have my doubts…)

By Kevin Ross II The Redskins faced a difficult opponent on the road in Arizona. To make it plain, they failed miserably. In a game that had huge playoff implications, Washington allowed a hungry Cardinals team to take the game 31-23. This is how the Redskins grade out. Offense Grade: C+ The Redskins’ offense was…

Wizards Take 1-0 Lead With 102-96 Win at Indiana

leave a comment »


Does this work, or what? I never thought I’d see the day when the Wizards would excite me MORE than the Caps. Wow.

CBS DC

INDIANAPOLIS — Bradley Beal scored 14 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and Trevor Ariza added 22 on Monday night, leading Washington past top-seeded Indiana 102-96 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Wizards won a second-round game for the first time since 1982 and are 4-0 on the road in this year’s playoffs. They ended a 12-game losing streak at Indiana that dated to April 18, 2007, and they did it by nearly leading from wire-to-wire.

Paul George and George Hill had 18 points each for Indiana.

The Wizards trailed only once, 31-30, and took control with a 17-6 run to close the first half that made it 56-43. Indiana couldn’t get closer than five points in the second half.

Game 2 is Wednesday night at Indiana.

The Pacers have lost both of their playoff series’ openers and will face another uphill battle — just…

Donald Sterling, Adam Silver, and us all.

Thought I’d go ahead & share this. Haven’t read it; let me know how this turns out…lol

godinspiredlove

So I wanted to break my hiatus to share my thoughts on the whole Donald Sterling fiasco. There are five main points that I want to touch upon:

1)      I agree with Silver’s actions. The NBA is sending a message, and it was important that it was severe.

2)      I would be surprised if Sterling was the only racist in the league.

3)      As this is the cause of the moment, it has become politically correct to ostracize Donald Sterling. If someone is asked their opinion on this situation, a lot of people will probably condemn his actions just so they don’t appear racist. Anyone who publicly supports Donald Sterling might appear racist, and no one wants to appear racist, even if they are. Even Donald Sterling, when speaking to his girlfriend said it’s ok to love African Americans you just have to do so privately. So for him, it’s…
