First Down: Why you need a sports section
WEEKEND REWIND IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Capitals dominate Devils — With Saturday’s 4-1 win over New Jersey, the Caps reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference and finally proved they could beat the best goalie of all-time, Martin Brodeur. Rookie Michal Neuvirth appears intent on proving Semyon Varlamov isn’t the only young, talented goalie in the Caps’ system; he won his third consecutive start. Not only that, his past two wins have come against Brodeur and Ryan Miller, two of the league’s best goalies. The big question is where Neuvirth’s performance leaves Jose Theodore, who may find himself as the odd man out in the Caps’ goalie rotation, much like Olie Kolzig did two seasons ago.
Wizards embarrassed by Timberwolves — New acquisitions Mike Miller, Randy Foye and coach Flip Saunders made their return to Minnesota on Saturday and were promptly beaten by a team with six wins. While Miller sat out with an injury, Foye received more than 30 minutes of playing time for the first time since Nov. 8. And despite scoring 16 points, his plus-minus of minus-17 was the worst of anyone on the roster. It’s not too late to wonder whether the deal that sent the No. 5 pick in this year’s draft and a bunch of expiring contracts to Minnesota for Miller and Foye was a mistake, especially with the Wizards mired near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
TWT FIVE REASONS YOUR NEWSPAPER NEEDS A SPORTS SECTION
1. Real news is depressing — Unless you consider the Redskins-Giants game last week worse than an economic collapse or an earthquake.
2. It holds powerful people accountable — When Jim Bowden shows up at spring training on a Segway, TWT photographers were there to document his stupidity.
3. ESPN is powerful enough — Good luck getting your fix of Capitals news from a network that doesn’t care about hockey.
4. Big events warrant big coverage — It may seem like decades since the Redskins, Wizards or Caps won a title (OK, so it was), but the TWT sports department was there to chronicle it.
5. It’s funny — Well, sometimes.
