The Needle: Royal Welcome

The British are coming!

In Which Two Washington Post Sportswriters Debate Post Policy, Over Twitter

If you're not following Mike Wise and Dan Steinberg on Twitter, you may have missed their discussion this afternoon of allegations that former Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams paid bounties for his players to hurt opponents. Wise said he had more dirt than that on Williams; said dirt then followed.
Read the exchange here:
Gregg Williams [...]

Clinton Portis Rocks the Reds?

Clinton Portis is a good blitz picker upper. But he's a better interview than he is a blitz picker upper.
This morning during his regular spot on the "Mike Wise Show" on WJFK-FM, Portis said that he spent the bye week in Russia.
Host Wise and co-host Holden Kushner expressed disbelief, and pressed the gimpy tailback for [...]

The Needle: Hoax Not So Wise Edition

Hard-Earned Wisdom: Yesterday afternoon, Washington Post sports columnist Mike Wise appeared to have a huge scoop on Twitter—Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger would be suspended for five games for an alleged assault. Before you could say "April Fool's in August," the Internet was abuzz with the news. Which was precisely Wise's point; the whole thing was [...]

What Pizza Did Joe Jacoby Really Eat?

The local media blessed us with tons of great memories of the glory days of the Redskins franchise over the weekend, what with Russ Grimm’s induction to the Hall of Fame.
My favorite came with Mike Wise’s column on the Hogs, going over the birth of football history's most durable and successful offensive line. I was [...]

Haynesworth Sacks Washington Post Column!

Get me rewrite!
Albert Haynesworth's bosses ain't the only ones disappointed that he's avoiding the "mandatory" team workouts that begin at Redskins Park today. Haynesworth's absence destroys Mike Wise's Washington Post column on the news value of the team's highest paid player.
The original headline of Wise's piece, as it appeared online last night: [...]

Mike Wise Is Really Getting Married?

Mike Wise went on the WJFK airwaves Wednesday and said he had to pay off a bet with co-workers. The Washington Post columnist and sportstalk host called his girlfriend during his radio show and, while others at the station could be heard giggling and begging both parties not to make the biggest mistake of their [...]

Wizards’ Crittenton Charged; Pleads Guilty

Wizards Guard Javaris Crittenton has been charged with two gun violations: one felony unlawful possession of a firearm and one misdemeanor attempting to carry a pistol without a license. A hearing on the matter in D.C. Superior Court is scheduled for like five minutes from now. Print out your very own  PDF of the Crittenton [...]

Was Gilbert Arenas Mike Wise’s Source for His Reporting on the Gun Incident?

There's nothing new about Tony Kornheiser hammering Mike Wise on his ESPN 980 radio show. Local browser histories groan under the weight of blog posts about their on-air jousts (e.g.: 1, 2, 3, 4), with the most recent chapters concerning Wise's coverage of Gilbert Arenas' fall.
At issue are two questions:
1) How good was Gilbert [...]

Mourning Roundup: George Michael, Not the Singer, Edition

Today Gilbert Arenas could prance through Chinatown wearing nothing but a bandolier and smile, and there would be no one to cover it. For today, every member of the District Sports Media Elite will be at the National Cathedral for the memorial service of George Michael, not the singer.
If you are from D.C. [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Mike Wise Would Write the Sex Column All Over Again?

Mike Wise should write a reverse advice column. He'll throw his problems out there, and readers will respond with support and counsel. He got a good start to this new career with Saturday's article confessing to, well, some sort of personal sexual derring do. Bad derring do!
In this space yesterday, I sorta blasted Wise for [...]

Mike Wise’s Strange Relationship With Strange

Good golly, Mike Wise had an awkward week. First, Wise appeared on Saturday's "Redskins Report" panel alongside fill-in panelist David Aldridge. Aldridge, remember, was the dude who came off like a goofy suck-up and a bully-for-pay while supporting his dark-hearted meal-ticket, Tony Kornheiser, during Kornheiser's latest attacks on Wise on WTEM.
Aldridge sat across the table [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: George Michael Lives On?

"We're 4-13. I can hardly even say it." Jim Zorn during last night's post-game press conference, erroneously reflecting on the Redskins record heading into the 16th and last game of the season. The coach's misery won't end until a trip to San Diego to face the Chargers and Norv Turner, perhaps the only guy who [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Elgin Baylor Gets His Day, But Not Here?

Today is Elgin Baylor Day in Washington!
But not this Washington. Greg Nickels, the mayor of Seattle, Wash., has officially dedicated today to Baylor.
Baylor was in Seattle for a couple years of college ball. So if he gets a day named after him there, Baylor should have a day named after him in D.C., too. And [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Tony Kornheiser, Mike Wise, and Me?

Tony Kornheiser's acting like a bad guy with a dark heart again. Earlier this week, he went after Mike Wise on Dan Snyder's sportstalker, WTEM, spending much of his show ranting about a week-old column from Wise for no obvious reason. Kornheiser mocked Wise for wondering if the Redskins would win another game this season [...]
