Unlike Oz City which was on a short-term sabattical (and yes, I’m shamelessly hoping the above picture permits a pardon), Jimmy Conrad is everywhere. The Wizards veteran captain is the rock solid anchor in an inexperienced back line; that is, when he’s not going forward on set pieces en route to holding claim as the team’s leading scorer. Off the field, he’s on four billboards in the metro area and is the star of an upcoming Wizards commercial campaign. He has his own radio show, blog, ESPN.com column, and is regularly featured on national publications’ websites like USA Today and The New York Times. And then there’s this: publicity in Penthouse. His q&a (squeezed around a whole lot of t&a) is part of the magazine’s MLS preview in which KC is picked to finish fourth in the East and suffer a first round playoff exit courtesy of eventual MLS Cup champions D.C. United.
Here is a transcript of Jimmy’s interview for those not wanting to convince your significant others that you only bought it for the article (been there, done that and at $9.99 for a single page out of the 150, I’m fairly certain she didn’t believe me). He also gets a page-sized picture of an aerial challenge against Salt Lake’s Robbie Findley, but needless to say it pales in the context of — to steal from HillcrestRoad — photographic bliss exhibited throughout. As for those wondering, the cover girl is Pet of the Month Alektra Blue. With a last name like that, surely she’s meant to be a Wizards Starting XI girl, yes?
