Down time

September 23, 2005

We’re going to have a good football weekend, right? RIGHT? We aren’t going to talk about or do any pre-game root root rooting for the team that must not be mentioned.

We will probably have to endure another week of fanfare over the “Return of Gibb’s Magic” due to the early bye granted to the Redskins. I am sorry, but two well-thrown, nicely-caught passes do not a passing game make. So no new news will be good news for the Washington-area sports writers. I am sure they will have the Skins actually winning the Superbowl before Week 4 since they will have nothing else to report on with the team off for an extra week. It’s not like there are other sports-worthy items to write about.

This week’s Football Lesson is the sign for Dead Ball. That is, the ball is not in play and cannot be used to further the game. Sad, isn’t it? Well, he looks happy anyway…

    Why can’t you let just let us dream for one more week?

    Hey! The Redskins will make it this year. Despite a weak offense they are a Coach Gibbs team.

    Anyhow, don’t quit on them just yet. Afterall, “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour? No!”

    Did you just spell Pearl Harbor with a U? Come on man, Pearl Harbor isn’t Canadian or British.

    Anyway, don’t discount the Redskins just yet Marci. That defense will keep most of their games close. It’ll be a season of thrillers or heartbreaks, I doubt we’ll ever have a “comfortable” lead in any game.

    Skins fans are incorrigible. I mean WAY more so than the average sports fan. Rich, you are in the wrong profession, you should be a DC-area sports writer.
