Who Wore It Better: Kerrigan Or LeBron?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 2, 2014 – 2:27 pm

Although I’m not one to clap and shriek at watch red carpet coverage in the hours leading up to the Oscars, I do enjoy one aspect of the fashionista Super Bowl.

While many women compete for best-dressed with a bottomless armoire of taped, sequined and beaded dress combinations, there are only so many ways to rock a tuxedo. So you’ll see some individuals lauded for lovely lapels while others are lampooned for their neck wear. (The smaller the better when it comes to bowties, Chris. AND YOU KNOW THIS, MAN).

Ryan Kerrigan added an accessory on Saturday you’re unlikely to see Sunday night. Attending a charitable masquerade ball in Richmond, Va., Kerrigan donned a black mask with his classic tux and notched lapels.

Was Kerrigan following ball protocol or was he riding the coattails of an NBA trend? Who wore it better, Kerrigan or LeBron James? Read more »

Durant Vs. James Extends To Gridiron

Just as Robert Griffin III and Peyton Manning do now, LeBron James and Kevin Durant will dominate top storylines on ESPN shortly after the NFL season ends. You can try to hide, but it’ll be impossible especially with First Take’s obsession with No. 6.

James, a two-time NBA Champion, four-time MVP and Olympic gold medalist, and Durant, a four-time All-Star and three-time NBA scoring champion, have as close as it gets to a modern day Magic vs. Bird rivalry.

Unlike Magic, who’s stayed close to his professional home with his acquisition of the still alive Los Angeles Dodgers, and Larry Bird, returning to his native Indiana to give back to the state that stood by him since day one, James isn’t exactly one to stick to his home as we all know.

Growing up in Akron, Ohio, you’d assume he’d stick with the Cleveland Browns. But that’d be too easy.

Theismann Believes NBA Star Can Be QB

Since quarterback Joe Theismann hung up his single bar helmet following the 1985 season he has taken to the broadcast booth as a commentator for various football games to include the Burgundy and Gold’s preseason slate.

Instead of running from robust defensive lineman and speedy linebackers, the former Notre Dame star now enjoys a life of breaking down plays of current signal callers in similar predicaments.

With an expansive history in the game that includes 77 career wins and a Super Bowl ring, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about football.

Could being a talent evaluator and agent for the best basketball player on earth be added to his lengthy resume soon?

Last night, the Washington Redskins defeated the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants at home to extend their season-long winning streak to three games.

Tonight, several Redskins players were on hand to watch the struggling Washington Wizards take on the defending NBA champion Miami Heat in D.C.

Not many gave the Wizards a chance to pull off the upset; but, wouldn’t you know it — Washington was victorious once again.

The Wizards earned their second win of the season by hanging on to defeat the Eastern Division-leading Heat, 105-101, in front of a standing-room crowd at the Verizon Center.

Among those taking in the game from the Redskins were quarterback Robert Griffin III, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, wide receivers Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan, tight end Fred Davis and long snapper Nick Sundberg.

Griffin III — who was sitting courtside next to the Wizards’ bench with his fiancée, Rebecca, to his right and Orakpo two seats to his left — tweeted this immediately after the game:

Durant, LeBron Show Love For Redskins

Posted by Andrew Walker on July 16, 2012 – 4:58 pm

Given that they’re in town today for their exhibition contest against Brazil, it’s no surprise that U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball teammates Kevin Durant and LeBron James are fielding questions about the D.C. sports scene.

But the questions are especially familiar for Durant, who was born in D.C. and has been one of the more visible Washington Redskins fans in recent years.

Richard Quinn Once Had Hoop Dreams

Have you ever dreamed of being a professional athlete? Well believe it or not some professional athletes also dream of being professional athletes—in other sports, that is.

If he could, recently signed Redskins tight end Richard Quinn would like to switch places with NBA star LeBron James for a day.

Quinn was born and raised in Maple Heights, Ohio, which is about 40 minutes away from James’ hometown of Akron Ohio.

“I watched him when I was in Cleveland, watched him in high school and then getting drafted out of high school,” Quinn said.  “Just the position he is in now made always wonder what it would be like to be in his shoes.” Read more »

To LeBron, Or Not To LeBron?

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 12, 2011 – 10:52 am

Good morning Redskins Nation.  Each of you have been promoted to General Manager of the Washington Redskins.  Congratulations!  Your first (and only) task is to make this decision:

Sadly, once you vote, you’re demoted back to devoted Redskins fanatic.  Not a bad resume builder though.
