Bickel’s Blog: Being A DC Sports Fan Is Taking Its Toll

It seems like every team I root for now, ultimately loses. It would be one thing if the town was filled with loveable losers. Guys that left it all on the field or court, but they just aren’t good enough. But we don’t have that. We have Andray Blatche and Rex Grossman

Bickel’s Blog: I Love Tebow, But Not For My Team

I love Tim Tebow. I love his attitude. I love his work ethic. I love his desire to be the best he can be. I admire his refusal to attack his critics- of which there are millions. I love his athleticism. I love the way he competes. I just don’t want him on the Redskins.
