Robert Griffin III referred to Dan Snyder, Bruce Allen and Tony Wyllie as his football family whom he trusts, in a recent cover story for ESPN the magazine. But Mike Shanahan’s name was left out of the statement, which begs the question: Why?
106.7 The Fan skipped a beat on Thursday when an impromptu call-in from Nats manager Davey Johnson prompted one of the strangest segments in the history of the radio station.
Nats GM Mike Rizzo supported Davey Johnson’s decision to bench Danny Espinosa during his weekly radio show Wednesday, saying the second baseman is “in a little bit of a funk right now” and could use a couple days off.
Jason Collins rattled the status quo Monday by becoming the first openly gay athlete in any of the four major American sports. The 24 hours that have followed the landmark announcement have served as a litmus test for society’s reaction when a superstar athlete follows in his footsteps.
The NFL Draft is filled with remarkable stories, but how many guys can say they overcame a broken back and a torn ACL, suffered in the span of just over a year? The answer is one: Chris Thompson, selected by the Redskins with the 154th pick. Here is his story.
The Redskins made the surprise of the third round by selecting Jordan Reed with 85th overall pick. Although Reed was a tight end throughout his time as a Gator, he had to learn the position after being recruited as a quarterback, and as he told Holden and Danny Monday, he learned by watching the best.
Along with a surprising 10-11 start, the Nationals have seen an uncharacteristically slow start from ace starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg (1-4), who may not be a staff ace after all, at least according to MLB Network’s Tom Verducci.
While holding a press conference Wednesday to address the state of the Redskins and field questions on the upcoming draft, Mike Shanahan may have dropped a “Dumb and Dumber” movie reference, and botched it. So you’re telling me there’s a chance?
Having lost eight of the last eleven games, the Nats are falling apart before our very eyes this April, which means that it’s just baseball and it’s still only April.
Nobody understands the Nats current struggles better than Ryan Zimmerman, who’s battled being labeled ‘injury prone’ while his team has slipped into a downward spiral. But there’s something that transcends his persistent battle through injuries, and event baseball itself, and that’s his ongoing fight against multiple sclerosis.
