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