So who here still has a chance of winning an NCAA bracket pool after this weekend’s upsets?  There are a few picks that were careless on my part but I know I’m far from alone in feeling the pain of Pitt and Louisville going down in the first round.  But I do love to see an underdog win, even if it means losing a few bucks in the office pool.  And whether or not you have a team in the tourney (my school never makes it in…), it’s a great distraction while we wait for our baseball team to come home for another season.  And let’s not forget our local soccer team — DC United had a great home opener on Saturday.  Sports season on the Hill — it’s a great time of year!

And on to your morning link round up:

  • Ryan Velasco shared his views on the Hine development in a post on Greater Greater Washington.
  • DCist took a look at the history of the Old Naval Hospital.
  • Urban Turf looked at the opportunities for home buyers around the Capital Riverfront.
  • The Washington City Paper took a deeper look at the fence around Potomac Gardens and questions about future development in two posts that can be read here and here.
  • Frozen Tropics took on an article in the Washington Informer that has created quite a stir.
  • Pound on the Hill generated lots of buzz (and I highly recommend the Nutella scones!) — Capital Cooking and Capital Spice both had great reviews.
  • Greater Greater Washington posted information on when the public can access the Riverwalk Trail behind the Navy Yard.  Sadly, it’s only open during working hours for the time being (so folks with 9-5 day jobs like me don’t get to access it yet) but I’m hoping the is means full access is not too far off.
  • We Love DC’s Capital Chef series featured Teddy Folkman (part two can be read here).
  • JDLand posted the 8th Street Beer Garden’s latest designs.
  • Prince of Petworth speculated about the future plans for the building at the corner of 14th an Pennsylvania Avenue SE, which has long been slated to be Annie & Teddy’s, as the building has reportedly been sold to a new owner.

    DC United indeed had a FANTASTIC opening night with a large and boisterous crowd. There is a great comeback story in striker Charlie Davies.

    If you have not attended a match, I reccommend it highly. If you enjoy soccer on the internatinal level, DC United gives you a chance to experience the game right here in your own neighborhood. Major League Soccer is one of the fastest growing pro sports leagues in the world, and while we are not yet at the level of the English Premiership ot pther European or South American leagues, one can have just as much frin at rund down RFK as anywhere in the EPl.
