“It’s frustrating, but with this team, in this stadium, you never know. They never give up, especially in this band box.” — Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez after his team gave up a seven-run lead and lost 8-7 to the Phillies in Philadelphia


Gregg Williams

The Genius is back at FedEx with the Jaguars with a similar job title (and nearly as many hyphens).

Jason Campbell

Zipping a few completed passes and staying upright against the Jaguars will go a long way toward making Saturday a mulligan.

Jim Bowden

Sporting the Manny wig was the funniest thing he has done since scooting around on a Segway during spring training. Oh, and drafting Aaron Crow.

Mike Hinckley

Finally in Class AAA, the Nationals farmhand is having his best season since he was named their top prospect in 2005 and could get called up soon.

Sean Glennon

With the season starting Saturday, the Virginia Tech quarterback has less reason to look over his shoulder since the Hokies intend to redshirt Tyrod Taylor.


The anticipation for the Welcome Back Luncheon on Wednesday afternoon in Tysons Corner centered around Jim Zorn since this would be his first such event. His speech was solid with a couple of pretty funny anecdotes. One in particular was about his adventure in an alumni flag football game with the Seahawks. It was a coed contest, and Zorn happened to hit a Seahawks cheerleader in the face with a pass, and in his words, “Her nose went boosh! [with the accompanying hand gestures to symbolize blood exploding everywhere].”

Zorn, being the competitive guy that he is, said he had to fight one of his reactions of, “Catch the ball!” which drew plenty of hearty laughter from the ballroom crowd.
