Everything I need to know about D.C. sports in the summer of 2010 I learned from “Tortoise and the Hare.”

The lead players in the two biggest sports dramas in the market are exchanging roles.

Stephen Strasburg’s physical condition became a big question mark out of nowhere. Now he’s leaving games early, and leaving fans to wonder how long before his handlers shut him down.

This just as Mike Shanahan is telling Redskins fans that Albert Haynesworthlooked pretty good” and that he wants him to play “all 16 games.”

Could it possibly turn out that Haynesworth, not Strasburg, is the guy who ends up earning his keep, record guaranteed bonus money and all, this season?

Spoiler alert: From what I remember of first grade, the real slow wide dude comes out ahead.
