Morning Reading List 12.21.10

*Today, WaPo‘s D.C. Sports Blog both shocks and disgusts us with the following line in a story about NBA basketball player Gilbert Arenas that Dan Steinberg found in a 2008 Men’s Journal. “When I was new in the NBA the team veterans convinced me to shave, you know, down there, because they said the hair stinks,” Gilbert told the magazine. Steinberg says he thought the line was funny then, but not so much anymore. Read more.

*Improve your holiday season and don’t become an atheist with The Daily Caller advice columnist’s holiday playlist.

*In this review of the hot and a tad sleazy NYT wedding story from Sunday, Politics Daily‘s Annie Groer writes about the story’s aftermath. She writes, “Not surprisingly, there has been a firestorm of reader reaction, some outraged, some empathetic. It ranges from “Why does the Times glorify home-wrecking?” to gratitude for “the honest reflection” of two adults “who did not actually cheat on their spouses” to “Soul mates indeed…” Read here.

Spotted: Sports Guys at Sandwich Shop

Spotted at Panera Bread in Chevy Chase last evening: Channel 4 sportscaster Dan Hellie, Fox 5 sports guru Dave Feldman and a Fox sports producer chowing down on sandwiches at a storefront table.  Hellie agreed with a questioner’s assertion that Lindsay Czarniak had done a solid report from the Verizon Center…hitting the angle that the Caps’ seven-game losing skid coincides with the filming of the highly-hyped HBO “24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic” documentary, first episode of which aired last night.  Czarniak also mentioned parts of Bruce Boudreau‘s rantings would probably be R-rated.

Dan Steinberg blogged on the WaPo website (the Sports Bog) that Boudreau drops several F-bombs and uses language that would “make Rex Ryan blush.”

Has the SI jinx been replaced with the HBO jinx?  First the NY Jets, now the Caps?

TBD Gets Editing Spanking from WaPo Sports Blogger

As alerted to us by The Daily Caller‘s Mike RiggsDan Steinberg, a WaPo.com sports blogger,  is developing a near obsession with editing TBD.com. Riggs writes, “I think @TBD must have left a flaming bag of dog sh*t on @DCsportsBog’s doorstep. Can anyone confirm?”

Here’s the evidence:

> Update: We’ve received word that some in the D.C. journalism community think TBD.com is being self-indulgent in stories on its own transparency and correction process. Read here and here.

Radio Return for Kornheiser

WaPo‘s Dan Steinberg reports that Tony Kornheiser plans to bring his radio show back on ESPN 980 in early September.

“Hope to, want to, plan to,” Kornheiser said. “I’m saying this is what I want to do, this is what I plan on doing.”

WaPo Journos Lunching With Ravindran

Don Graham has been holding journo lunch meetings for Vijay Ravindran, WaPo’s chief digital officer. According to Washingtonian, the lunches are being held to ramp up the former Amazon exec. on the business of news.

WaPo’s Liz Spayd, Joel Achenbach, Dana Milbank, Ian Shapira, Jose Antonio Vargas, Mike Wilbon, Jason LaCanfora, Dan Steinberg, Stephen Hills and David Plotz of Slate met with Ravindran at the last luncheon.

Most surprising is the one person that hasn’t hit Graham’s lunches… Check out Washingtonian’s Capital Comment blog for the full scoop.

Wise Gets Face Time at Half Time With Pres. Obama

That’s President Obama at the Wizards game last weekend with WaPo sports reporter Mike Wise, who has “the magic Crisco touch,” according to colleague Dan Steinberg.

In the D.C. Sports Bog, Steinberg says, “When Obama went to the Wiz game on Friday, only a handful out of the 20,000 people in the building got genuine Presidential face time. There were the few folks sitting in his immediate section. There were the very very few people who walked past before the Secret Service shut that avenue down. And, of course, there was Mike Wise.”

Here’s how Wise narrates their meeting:

MW: “Mr. President, good to see you again. Mike Wise from the Washington Post.”

BO: “Good to see you, Mike.”

MW: “Looking forward to playing hoops at some point, Sir.”

BO: “Definitely.”

MW: “Oh, how’s Dan Hale?”

BO: “Dan’s great, thanks.”

MW: “Enjoy the game.”

BO: “Thank you.”

Steinberg Questions WaPo’s Political Contribution Policy

From Washington Post sports writer/blogger Dan Steinberg‘s interview with Washingtonian.com:

    I took an oath upon starting for the Post not to root for any sports teams. Frankly, I don’t understand why the Post forbids us from giving even five cents to a political campaign but doesn’t mind staffers who are blatant cheerleaders for various pro sports teams. But whatever–I don’t make the rules; I just keep my own mind pure.

Why Is Lindsay Czarniak Beating Up On “Cakes” Auville?
