Nationals fan? Woulda thought his dog in that fight was the Braves.
The Michael Vick dogfighting story stays in the news for another cycle, and not all the news is bad. The Onion reports on Bob Costas' self-important glassy-eyed bloviation wrapping effusive praise and superlative overstatement into one extra crispy bucket of enthusiasm. Money shot:
Costas has often criticized the recent decline in quality of the illegal death sport, saying dog-fighting has become "shameless in its pandering to the worst echelon of sports fanhood" and "has sunk nearly as low as boxing."And almost unnoticed went revelations of new discoveries at Michael's Smithfield, Virginia house. The most interesting:

* Water cooler with secret compartment containing stash of Oreos.
