NoVa Terrorized by “Gallon-Smashing” Teens

If you enjoyed tracking the "Harlem Shake" meme, but worried it didn't have enough potential to provoke personal injury lawsuits, well, you're in luck:  Now comes "gallon-smashing," as practiced by three Vienna, Va., teens.

Fox 5 Anchor Announces The “N*gger Inaugural”

There's a list of words that TV reporters should never say, and it must be racing through their heads whenever the camera's on. Don't say it. Don't say it.
Well, Fox 5's Holly Morris said it. In a morning broadcast yesterday on extravagant inauguration deals, Morris fell over herself and declared the Willard Hotel the spot [...]

Fox 5 Anchors Dance Gracefully to “Da Butt”

Just kidding. But this morning's video of Fox 5 anchors Allison Seymour and Tony Perkins and weatherman Tucker Barnes dancing while Experience Unlimited plays its go-go classic definitely belongs in the next oral history of the song. Keep an eye on Barnes, who starts by mimicking Perkins but develops a style all his own.
Video after [...]

The Needle: He Biked That Way! Edition

Talkin' Bout the Money: Court documents released in today's guilty plea by a former Vince Gray campaign aide (as opposed to Tuesday's guilty plea by a former Vince Gray campaign aide) indicate the winning effort accepted money from at least one "straw donor," who gave funds actually provided by someone else.

Faces and Heels: Would a Man Take His Shoes Off for Santana Moss?

Cheap Seats Daily: Who the Hell Would Buy a Redskins Scratch Ticket Now?

How over are the Redskins?
So over that on WRC, Lindsay Czarniak did her sports report Sunday night without ANY visible Skins logos on her person. (Fact.)
So over that Sonny Jurgensen didn't tussle with Jim Zorn in his postgame interview. (Fact.)
So over that starting this week, the Virginia Lottery has changed first prize for its $20 [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Monday Morning Coming Down!

Clearest sign that it's about time to crank out the Countdown to Cowher™: Jim Zorn's post-game interview with Sonny Jurgensen, heard on Dan Snyder's WTEM.
Here's the opening:
Sonny Jurgensen: You had one offensive touchdown...
Jim Zorn: Thank you.

I Saw a Metro Employee Napping. Should I Have Taken Cell Phone Video?

Yesterday I was on an Orange Line train going toward Vienna, sitting in the back of the train with my bike. Behind me, shut in the rear cockpit, I could see a Metro employee sitting behind the controls, seemingly asleep.

Fenty on Transparency!

Fox 5 has a pretty good gig on Thursday mornings, when it gets to grill Mayor Adrian M. Fenty one on one.

BCS Bowl Broadcasts Bring Out Sub-Prime Time Commercials

The season's final BCS game comes with Thursday's Florida/Oklahoma matchup.
If past is prologue, those viewing the alleged national championship game on the local Fox affiliate better be prepared for a barrage of wonderfully underproduced and low-aiming commercials for an outfit called CashPoint.
That's a Virginia financial firm that gives equity loans to car owners.
The best/worst of [...]
