Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC First half in two words: COMPLETE DISASTER. The Redskins fired coach Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start. They failed to trade holdout tackle Trent Williams, leading to harsh words by the Pro Bowler after he reported. They lost key players to injuries (tight end Jordan Reed and running back Chris Thompson) and, at 1-8,[…]
Mark R Bacon—Main Event Sports DC The 2019-20 NBA season started on a down note regarding the incoming rookie class after Zion Williamson’s knee injury, but the newest crop has turned the narrative around in a hurry as the calendar turns to November. The No. 2 and No. 3 picks have each shown flashes of All-Star[…]
Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC The NBA Pre-Season Rankings Reverse Jinx lives! The Wiz—dead last in that annual rankings crap shoot—are kinda … fun? They are especially so with Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans—The Latvian Laser—manning the forward spots.

It’s a question he has fielded constantly since becoming the head coach and he finally had to respond with something beyond a[…]
Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is going to be fired. Soon. This was something of a foregone conclusion even before Washington was thumped 24-3 by the rival New York Giants in a game that strengthened their grip on the NFC East cellar. Maybe it will happen Monday. Maybe[…]
Lee Ann Herring-Olvedo — MESPORTS South GAINESVILLE–Beta, Beta no time to rest its gameday in the Swamp and its time to be put to the test. Both these ball clubs have been trying to get themselves out of the deep mirky waters they have been swimming in hopes of finally reaching the higher ground not[…]
Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC NO ONE has worse luck and is shot through and through with chronic, habitual misfortune than the Washington Redskins. NO ONE. So this comes as no surprise, but it still blows… The Skins have been eagerly awaiting the return of tight end Jordan Reed, but according to a new report, it’s possible[…]
Lee Ann Herring-Olvedo — MESPORTS SOUTH ATHENS,GA–Tonight there is a pack of rabid dawgs on the hunt for some Irishmen. Will the Dawgs and Kirbys’ “Smart Way” continue to prevail or can the luck of the Irish finally be more than a pot of fools gold? You can be certain that this Week 4 evening […]
