The Needle: Out of the Woods Edition

"I Don't Believe You Want To Get Up And Dance": Success breeds imitation. The recent dance-protest at the Jefferson Memorial was such a hit—mostly because no one was arrested—that Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton wants to sponsor her very own dance-off. Norton has a permit for a dance on the Mall on July 30 as part [...]

Tiger Woods + Rae Carruth = Creepy Good Sportstalk!

Good talk-radio hosts let listeners know how they really feel, even when they shouldn't. LaVar Arrington is a good talk-radio host.
And on yesterday's show on WJFK, when the topic of Tiger Woods' alleged $750 million divorce settlement came up, Arrington went off.
After saying the legal system is "sexist" in divorce settlements, Arrington blurted: "That's why [...]

Morning Roundup: The ‘Happy Birthday, Hef’ Edition: PLUS: Friday Is Here!

Good morning, everyone. It's Friday!
First things first: Let's all wish a happy birthday to Hugh Hefner, who is turning 84!

From his bio on the Playboy Enterprises Web site: "Hefner was born in Chicago on April 9, 1926, the elder son of conservative Protestant parents, Glenn and Grace Hefner, and a direct descendant of distinguished Massachusetts [...]

Morning Roundup: The National Enquirer Goes for a Pulitzer and Conan Gets $45 Million to Shut Up

It's Friday!
Today, there is no other place to start but here: the weather (the roads are just wet for now, but there is still a chance you need to panic). Also, road closures and the March for Life. You going?
Next: Howard Kurtz's story in the Washington Post this morning about how the National Enquirer plans [...]

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: Charlie Weis? No! Marty Schottenheimer? Yes!

This holiday season has given me a new favorite TV commercial: the one for Fun Slides.
You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
That's a pair of slippery plastic pieces you strap to the bottom of your shoes like skates and slide around the house in. The spots for these carpet skates [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Dan Snyder Tells Santa the Redskins Have No Waiting List?

Lamont Peterson lost by unanimous decision on Showtime on Saturday night in his bid to take Tim Bradley's WBO junior welterweight title. Peterson was knocked down early, and the judges' cards weren't close. Peterson, who as a teenager trained with a fight club in the basement of Lincoln Junior High in Columbia Heights, now has [...]

Morning Roundup: The “George Stephanopoulos Is a Little Prick Moron” Edition

Good morning, City Desk readers. It's cold!
Did you go to Washington City Paper's first-ever Tweetup last night? I didn't. But I hear it was the #besttweetupever. It had to be because @MikeRiggs, formerly of "Freedom Friday" roundup fame, was there, and he was giving out hugs. Did you get one?
A couple of newsworthy things going [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Prediction: Tiger Woods Will Sit Out the Masters While in Cad Recovery Program?

Very interesting interview over the weekend with Greggg Williams from a Saints-friendly publication.
The best parts of the talk with the former Redskins and current New Orleans defensive coordinator ain't the ones where Williams says over and over that he's great pals with Dan Snyder, the guy who made him stay at the poolhouse for three [...]

Our Morning Roundup: The “Are You Insecure About Your Calves?” Edition

Hello, and welcome to today. It's Friday! You've probably heard about the expected hike in Metro fares and that the man accused of killing Chandra Levy is facing new federal charges.
But did you know that Tiger Woods is insecure about his calves? Honestly, that's the least of his problems right now, but let's consider the [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: What Sort of Clown Would Write an ‘Open Letter’ to Tiger Woods?

Today's Tiger Woods bits:
Michael Wilbon says Tiger's a better sportsman for getting caught with his pants down.
But that ain't the brainlessest thing written about Tiger lately. No, Wilbon's thesis reads like Malcolm Gladwell next to the efforts of CNBC's Larry Kudlow and FoxSports' Robert Lusetich. And the Denver Examiner's Rose Conley. And Rev. Ziegler over [...]

Shocker: Examiner Takes Swing At Woods

The front page of the Examiner rarely breaks form. There's usually a string of anti-Obama blather, a Redskins-in-turmoil blurb, and a big oversight story on WMATA.
Except today.
Today, the Examiner went all TMZ!

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: If the Redskins Waiting List Is 200,000 People Long, Why Was Dan Snyder’s Ticket Staff Working So Much OT?

The Great Dan Steinberg™ had a fab story over the weekend about former employees of Dan Snyder's ticket office suing the Redskins for overtime pay. The Redskins don't dispute the claim that the staff worked overtime. The team's basis for not paying OT, however, is that the ticket sales office is in the "amusement and [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Asian Tiger?

Let's get right to the issue of the day. The winners of the first three AT&T National events at Congressional:
2007 — KJ Choi
2008 — Anthony Kim
2009 — Tiger Woods
The liberal media doesn't want you to know: There's an Asian bias to Tiger's tournament!
***
Woods exploited this bias to beat a field that included upstart white guys [...]
