My North Carolina State University Wolfpack fell to 2-6 at the end of October, so when they finished the regular season yesterday at 6-6 and bowl eligible, I was ecstatic. The Washington Redskins, on the other hand — 6-2 at the end of October, just a half game off the division lead and with an [...]
It seems to me that many of my friends here in Washington were rooting for the Phillies in the Series. I can see the logic by which they might have arrived at that decision, but I don’t find it convincing. Having been to see the Eagles play at FedEx and the Phils play at RFK [...]

Huh. So the Nats released John Patterson. I guess they figured he was never gonna be like he was in 2005. This, of course, is the part where he wins the Cy Young for someone else. Probably, knowing my luck, the Phillies. In other news, I oddly received two tickets to the Orioles-Nats game on [...]
