NEWSMAKERS

Anthony Kim

His coming-out party continued at the Ryder Cup, where he dismantled rattled Sergio Garcia in singles competition.

Brett Favre

Deemed the savior when he arrived in New York, Favre’s decent numbers haven’t been enough to keep the Jets out of last place.

Stephon Marbury

With the Knicks getting ready to cut loose the kooky point guard, the Miami Heat are showing interest for some reason.

Roger Clemens

Had his feelings hurt when the Yankees left him out of their stadium celebration. Found out watching his battery-operated TV.

Kyle Busch

He’s won more than anyone on the Sprint Cup circuit, but he’s already conceded that he can’t win the chase: “We’re out of the title hunt, that’s for sure.”

BLOG EXCERPT

Hall of Famer Darrell Green will be blogging for The Washington Times this football season at washingtontimes.com. Here is an excerpt from his first post.

It’s what the players (both present and former), the coaches and every Redskins and Cowboys fan both young and old wait for all year long. That’s right, baby - it’s Dallas Week! Our biggest game of the season is taking place this Sunday afternoon.

The battle between the ‘Skins and the ‘Boys started well before I got here, was strong while I played and is even stronger now that I’m watching as a fan.

It seems like the Washington-Dallas rivalry is as old as time, and the tradition of Dallas Week brings an atmosphere rich with pride, excitement and great expectations of the impending clash of the titans.

Anyone would be hard-pressed to find a Redskins fan who isn’t ready and willing to bet the farm on a Redskins victory.
