Lorenzo Alexander And Kedric Golston's Bike Ride Was A Success

Well, it’s been almost 48 hours since I wrote about Lorenzo Alexander doing something good for people, so this seems like a fine time to mention that Alexander and Kedric Golston‘s charity bike ride this past weekend was a success.

When offseason work started at Redskins Park, there was a group of guys that would regularly get together to play Around The World down on the basketball court. This seemed like it might make a decent blog item (although, obviously, it never panned out), and when I talked to the regular players, the same names kept coming up as the best shooters on the team: Carlos Rogers, DeAngelo Hall (which we knew), and … Lendy Holmes?
