Washington Capitals’ Analyst Craig Laughlin Swears on the Air (Video)

It looks like analysts and announcers have gone crazy.  At least when Howie Rose trashed the Islanders and Bob Lamey ripped Peyton Manning they both thought they were off the air.  Washington Capitals color analyst Craig Laughlin has taken it to the next level.  There’s no way Laughlin can claim he thought he was off…Read More

Washington D.C. Sports Teams Have Lots of Reasons for Optimism

Even though only one major sports team in Washington is still playing right now, things are already looking up for the rest of them. The Washington Nationals are sucking less than usual this year and are currently at .500 with a 22-22 record. (Maybe Obama throwing out the first pitch had something to do with…Read More

I talked recently about the Caps dishing out a 13-year $124 million contract to sign stud Alexander Ovechkin. Now we have all the proof we ever needed…Read More

The Caps Can Afford to Pay Ovechkin $124 Million?

I’m sorry, I don’t care what sport it is — $124 million is a lot of money. It was a lot when KG signed his big money contract for around that amount, it was a lot when Barry Zito did it, it was a ton when MLS sold their heart and soul for Beckham, and…Read More
