Last night's Redskins suckage was more of the whimpering than the banging variety. I'm burned out by the dramatic badness. It's all been said. But I'll say it all again, once more before apathy really sets in.

Day Three at City Paper: Meet, Well, Me

I joined the Washington City Paper family this week, replacing the beloved Jule Banville, the recently departed asst. managing editor and D.C. brunch-culture-hater who was kind enough to leave in her office some very important things, such as an AP Stylebook, two dictionaries and a bottle of Tylenol.

Any Chance Prince George’s County’s Hoops-Prodigy-of-the-Moment Can Come Home to Play?

It's no longer hot news, but it gets amazinger and amazinger all the time: As Chicago is to political corruption, Prince George's County is to basketball.
Ty Lawson, the point guard from Clinton, Md., added more to the lore on Saturday, playing at a pace nobody else on the court could keep up with [...]

P.G.’s Rating Going Up, Up, Up…

Prince George's County has been producing basketball players the way Kenya does long distance runners for a while now. That reputation only grew over the weekend.
Oklahoma native Blake Griffin will end P.G.'s streak of exporting the best player in college ball at two seasons—Kevin Durant ruled through 2006-2007, and Michael Beasley, Durant's former teammate on [...]
