Suggested sports blogs names and topics, many of them obvious

In the tradition of withleather (possibly NSFW, depending on where you work), the band is out on the field and a bunch of other blogs named after infamous quotes, actions, etc. here are some suggested names for sports blogs.

makeitrain – athletes and strip clubs, what could go right?

icantdownloadajarofpeanutbutter – Joe Paterno doesn’t use the internet, but his fans do.

ivegotafamilytofeed — overpaid NBA stars

misterirregardless — this what Saved by the Blog should have been called before Mottram the younger joined Mottram the elder

playedlikedidleypoo, weletthemoffthehook — coaches losing their cool in postgame interviews

thebearsarewhowethoughtheyare — great for an NFC North blog

rickeyknewaplayerwhoworeabattinghelmet — athletes who talk about themselves in the third person

haveanotherdonutyoufatpig — I can’t believe there isn’t a hockey blog named after this great Jim Shonefeld line

givinghimthebusiness — Football officiating

blesshishearthemustbethesickestmaninamerica — when horrible things happen to good players

whatsgoingonwithbritney — a look at sports non sequitors or “Mike Patrick’s slow descent into madness is no longer so slow”

icanhaspittsburgher — black and gold sports

hicksdigthelongballHillbillies Sons of the soil talking about home runs. I suppose there could be a dcsportshick too.

Go ahead and start one of these up, just be sure to link back to where you got the original idea.

Not too much Silver Line news

Governor at center of two transit disputesThe Wash. Times
Speaker of the House William J. Howell claims to have been ignored when he warned the the Dulles Corridor Metro project was flawed. He was opposed to involving the Metropolitan Washington Aiports Authority in the project and in favor of private financing that may have included “selling the rights” to collect tolls on the Dulles Toll Road. Howell wants “the General Assembly should push for the oversight authority to investigate how the state got in this position” which sounds like a good idea, provided its mandate is to figure out how to get the project back on track, not to merely place blame.

Anti-Transit Bias May Be Hurting Dulles RailAP/WTOP
This is a pretty good summary of where the Tysons-Dulles Corridor situation is right now and how it got here.

Random YouTube magic: ABC Sunday Night Movie

Remember when movies on network TV were a big deal? This opening below conveys that better than any other ever did:

YES! It must be time for Star Trek II, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a Bond or Superman movie. ABC always got the blockbusters; they needed to with an opening this good. I love the strings at the start of the music, they create an incredible amount of tension and anticipation for a mere movie bumper. This clip also answers the question of what an America flag going Warp 5 looks like.

According a YouTube commenter, the music was composed by Ferdinand J. Smith. The announcer from Dynasty promo at the end was the late Ernie Anderson, who ranks up there with John Facenda for best voices ever. He was also father of Paul Thomas Anderson.
