Barry Svrluga came to The Washington Post in 2003 after working at newspapers in upstate New York (tiny); Portland, Maine (less tiny); and Raleigh, N.C. (not at all tiny), covering everything from Nascar to high school lacrosse to the Final Four. At the Post, he has covered college basketball and football (mostly Maryland), the Washington Nationals (2004-08) and the Olympics (Athens, Turin, Beijing, Vancouver with London to come). He currently covers the Washington Redskins and golf and spends time reminding people the ’05 Nats were in first place at the All-Star break. Really. They were.
