Baseball Is DeAngelo Hall's Backup Plan

Posted by Matt Terl on May 10, 2010 – 4:00 pm

You’re probably aware that DeAngelo Hall threw out the first pitch at Thursday night’s Nats game. Perhaps you saw it, or saw it mentioned on Twitter, or read about it when I wrote about it on Friday, or when Dan Steinberg covered it from another angle this morning.

And I bet through all of that coverage, two thoughts were just pounding in your head: 1) Does Hall have a lot of baseball experience? And 2) What does Carlos Rogers think of all this?

If I’m right and that’s what you were thinking, I’ve got some answers for you. Let’s take the second one first:

Inside Redskins Park: Upgrades To The Practice Fields

Posted by Matt Terl on May 10, 2010 – 1:48 pm

No, I have not decided to pack in the whole football blog thing in favor of increased agronomy and agriculture coverage, although that would be a reasonable assumption from these pictures.

This is actually what’s going on on the practice fields at Redskins Park today, during this gap between mini-camp sessions: the old fields are being torn out, and new Bermuda grass fields will be put in place.

It doesn’t have quite the dramatic impact of the HD videoboards going in at FedExField, but enough people mentioned the field looking rough in my mini-camp photos that I thought this was worth noting. For much more detailed information (and a couple of goofy jokes), I went out to the fields with a Redskins Broadcast Network camera crew and talked to the guys doing the actual work:

Joey Galloway Shows His Age

Posted by Matt Terl on May 10, 2010 – 11:33 am


You hear the term “graybeard” a lot to refer to older players, but it’s very rarely actually true. Aside from Kurt Warner and the inescapable Brett Favre, I can’t think of a whole lot of players who actually continued to play while sporting silver facial hair.

Well, you can add Joey Galloway to the list. I mentioned Galloway’s distinctive on-field appearance, the strips of his headwear fluttering behind his helmet, but the most distinctive part of his off-field appearance was his white stubble. But that wasn’t the only thing that alluded to Galloway’s age; so did half the questions he was asked.

It’s funny: when Galloway signed, I thought of him as a veteran receiver. I observed that he had been teammates of a sort with Keenan McCardell, who is now his position coach. But I didn’t fully put together just HOW veteran he was until a throwaway comment in the interview above. Read more »
