Hey Coach you should stick to coaching and stop clowning around until you take home the trophy.
jerry gardner June 26, 2014 at 04:30 pm
Indeed. Watching a soccer game is much more important than keeping a job.

Government needs to take care of government and leave sports out of it. I am a direct decedent ofRead More Pocahontas and think the name Redskins is fine. I agree with the RPC. Why look a gift horse in the mouth. This team brings millions into Virginia each year. Maybe they should remove the name "Washington". Who wants to be associated with what is going on up there now.

It is sad that a sports team which for many years was a source fun and even a unifiying pride in theRead More Washington metro region has become a new battleground for disagreement and division among us. A sign of the times.

I'm glad these legislatures are doing this.

If you think traffic is bad now, it will be 10 times (or more!) worse then. Security alone will beRead More a nightmare. Let one of the other cities have it.

I agree that having the Olympics here would be a disaster -- lots of inconvenience and costs to theRead More public and mainly only the hotel and restaurant business would benefit. Not one cent of tax money should go toward bringing the Olympics here.

I'm intrigued bit cautious. If something happens to remake the area around RFK it could be aRead More substantial legacy. The region already has a lot of the other event infrastructure and facilities so the games would be dispersed.

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

Please explain: 10 from Reston?? 6 women and four men from McLean? Wardian from Arlington?
Amy Zacaroli April 23, 2014 at 12:12 pm
This story could be so much better. I have a great friend from Burke who ran the Boston Marathon onRead More Monday and to hear her explain why she did it and the emotional atmosphere of the whole day is so amazing. You could have really brought this story to life... talk to the runners and do better research on the area runners who participated!

The look on the other girls face is a lot more stupid looking if you ask me. She looks like sheRead More trying to keep that load of cuum from dribbling out of her mouth.

awww the girl who wiped the ice with her butt twice in the USA championships is surprised she didn'tRead More score higher. I am not surprised.

I had the same expression when she was chosen to go to the Olympics.
