I'm saying that 15 years into Jacobs ownership of the B's I don't think too many would have seen them ever winning a cup with him as the owner regardless of them having been to 2 finals in 3 years, each time getting rolled over by the powerhouse Oilers. The guy was cheap just to be cheap and used Bourque's way undervalued contract to keep all the other contracts on his team down also.

I'm not taking issue with anyone who questions Leonsis' ownership of the team currently but I do take issue with the idea that 15 years in it is clear that they will NEVER win a cup with him as owner.

We really could do far worse than Leonsis in the ownership position. #PeterAngelos #DanSnyder

Millhaus,

Fair enough. I haven't followed the B's closely enough to have a strong opinion of Jacobs. They have made a lot of bold moves over the years though. I give him credit for that. He/they traded for Neely, Oates, Jason Allison & Jim Carey...let Glen Wesley go to Hartford, drafted Samsonov (didn't work out), signed Zdeno Chara, traded Joe Thornton away, swapped what's-his-name the winger to TOR for picks (Seguin +). Tim Thomas is a great goalie which is what the B's were missing on a lot of those 80's and 90's teams.

The Caps, since Leonsis/McPhee have been pretty timid. The Jagr move was bold. It didn't work but it was the right kind of move. The 2004 sell off was fruitful but not really bold and not especially visionary. I don't want to be unfair to Leonsis and McPhee. They have made some quality moves and have drafted well since 2004. But overall their work has been timid, slow and ultimately ineffective. Is there reason to expect anything different? I see no reason to expect a sudden change. I see mediocrity.

How can teams score 100 points and lose by 1?

That's so crazy. I get there are 2 point and 3 point baskets but really 50 baskets each approximately and it might as well be a 0-1 Hunter hockey game.

hey now, Angelos and the O's made the playoffs this year!

Their building blocks look like they're worth something.

Wall = awful.

The ongoing Dan Steingberg and other media twitpics of the crowd during the games are hilarious. I cant imagine more thank 8k people are there at every game.

He has to be hemorraging money and is still a hardliner in this whole Lockout biz

What top managers would want to work for Ted? I don't think the top guys would want to work for the Bullets or the Caps. Maybe as a stepping stone. Not that these are the worst franchises. But they are in the mediocre middle. Purgatory.

Looking for some advice. A group of friends and I are going to Washington/Baltimore next April to take in some Baseball games. 2 games in Baltimore and 1 in Washington. Would we be better getting a hotel room in Washington or Baltimore? What is the best way to get back and forth between the 2 cities? Any advice will help. Thanks.

I would prefer staying in DC while in town, but thats because I prefer DC over Baltimore. For you staying in Baltimore is fine. Plenty to see and do.

As for getting between the 2 cities, the MARC Train runs between DC and Baltimore. I've never used the MARC Train personally, but as a commuter train I am sure it has regular schedules trains between the 2 cities all week long. Here is a link to their site:

It takes about an hour to get between the two. You can take the MARC and then get on the DC metro. You could stay in the middle, but if you don't have a car, it's a pain. i would stay in one of the cities, and then just marc/cab it over.

If you do stay between, I'd probably stay around BWI. You can take the light rail into downtown Baltimore, and Amtrak or MARC to Union Station in DC.

I love Baltimore, grew up 10 minutes outside the city, and I'd stay in DC if having to choose between the two cities. More to do (much of it free) and much easier to get around (Metro is excellent as far as mass transit systems go).

It's pretty easy to get one day of entertainment in the Inner Harbor/downtown Baltimore, but adding a second day in Baltimore becomes a bit of a stretch. In terms of tourism and daytime activities, DC definitely has a lot more to do.

With 2 fouls and 0 points so far against the Spurs, he's now up to 33 fouls and 29 points on the season.

Also 3-13 from the FT line.

He should be in the D-League.

One more trip down to Greensboro for Maryland, this time to fight ponying up 53M to leave the ACC. Which is going to cost them even more in lawyer fees.

By the way, I still contend Loh and Anderson are self serving idiots, and that moving to the Big 10 will not make Maryland Football profitable enough to warrant moving in the first place. Being greedy often comes at a cost, and those 2 clowns will be gone long before it ever becomes profitable. Book it.

Maybe 20% of the elite colleges run profitable athletic programs. I highly doubt all the big 10 teams are profitable, or than this is all Maryland needed to turn the corner.

Although I did tune in to watch our LB playing QB, I doubt Michigan fans will.

I wonder if our athletes travel times and expenses will be significantly higher in the Big 10.
