    Same - at least you could put the blame on something outside of your control. Really hope the Nats are taking notice of tbe Caps, though. I know they were beaten by superior teams in the NLDS but when its game 5 and they're down to their last out, you have got to put your foot down on their throat and finish the job. There should be at least two NLCS appearances under their belt right now and maybe a pennant.
  2. Old School What-ifs

    Who can say? Marshall had already sold a bunch of the team's shares in '61 (that's when JKC's involvement with the team started) and had a stroke soon afterward and was already on a steep mental decline. For numerous reasons, he had no business running that team anymore and his botching that deal with Murchison is proof of it. I dunno how much he sold the shares to JKC and Edward Bennet Williams for but he could have had $600K in his pocket immediately and done something else with his life.

  4. Old School What-ifs

    What if GPM goes through with the sale of the Redskins to Clint Murchison (who planned to move the team to Dallas)? They were losing money, playing lousy football and the only reason it didn't go forward was because Marshall changed the terms of the deal at the last minute. I contend that with the right leadership (the opposite of the expansion Senators of the same time) it could have been a pretty great opportunity for the D.C. Metro Area and pro football as a whole - especially since it would have gone down as the AFL was getting started. We could have had a great, divisional rivalry with the Colts (and later the Ravens) after the merger and had a chance to start fresh after GPM alienated most of the people around him and Griffith Stadium was in its last days before giving way to new D.C. Stadium. New team in a new league playing in a new stadium for what was, essentially, a new city.

    That's what I've noticed, too, the few times I've been able to actually watch the Caps. He's a damn fine goalie but either because the Caps can be kinda streaky with their scoring, they leave him in tough positions. A D.C. team leaning too heavily on their talented battery because of inconsistent offense. Where have I heard this one before? here oh where have I heard this before?

    Finishing a post by unironically writing "Sad" like a Trump tweet, eh? Nice. But you're absolutely right - how dare people have strong feelings about their interests and then have the nerve to express it to people who share said interests? I mean, who does that, right? So lame.
  7. Random Thought Thread

    Agreed - until last night when the Caps had a second consecutive shut out and beat the **** out of the Eastern Conference's best team (literally) This one's going to 6 at least.

    We haven't had a championship parade on Pennsylvania Avenue since the George H.W. Bush Administration. I'm not a hockey fanatic but if the Caps are the ones to break the drought, then so be it. If you're waiting out for the 'Skins to break the drought as if they still have the attention and adoration they enjoyed 30-40 years ago, then you're in for a long, fruitless wait. The sports landscape and demographics of the city have changed dramatically. Unless things change dramatically with the 'Skins, I'm probably part of the last generation that was raised with the mentality that they are the only show in town that mattered for the foreseeable future (and I was still teased for wearing my burgundy and gold jacket to my elementary school in Fairfax County). If the Redskins hegemony over the D.C. Metro Area isn't dead already, it's well on its way unless things change dramatically and in a hurry.

    Tickets are gonna be too rich for my blood but I'll be looking out for watch parties down in D.C.on the weekends and especially if the Caps have 3 wins under their belt.
  10. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    Before yesterday's game, I figured if the Caps moved on it would be the Golden Knights in 6. But after the last two games where the Caps seized on scoring opportunities, scored early, and beat up on the Bolts (especially last night), I don't know if I can pick this one at all. If the Caps win, I'd love to see it happen at home - the arena will be deafening. But if Vegas wins, I really hope they don't do it at our place. I hate seeing footage of Steve Yzerman skating around the MCI Center rink with the Cup while the few remaining Caps fan look on in abject sadness.

    I'm coming up on my one year at my current employer in June which means I'll qualify for PTO. I was just thinking this morning how I've been overdue for a visit to the National Gallery Museum - maybe even an after hours visit with a few friends? Y'know just spit balling some ideas.

    They usually sell copies of WaPo at the 7-11 on the corner. Cannot wait to pick mine up this morning before work. This one's for the archives. Going to the show - after 20 years, we're finally going back.

    We are going to show. We're going to ****ing show. Oh my God I don't think I'm gonna sleep tonight.
  15. WaPo et al: Red Zebra Sells WTEM 980

    Bumping this to talk a little bit more about Urban One, the firm taking WTEM over. From what I've been able to gather about them, this is good news for the station. I mentioned earlier they're local and have a long, successful history and they already have experience taking over a Red Zebra station: WXGI - ESPN radio affiliate in Richmond. Not sure if they're making bank but they did add a second FM signal late last year (to boost their signal, I presume). They're the only sports only station in Richmond to break the top 20 and are among four Urban One stations in the top 20 (including the number one station in the market). It will be interesting to see if they can catch up with WJFK.
