What a crazy first week for the 2010 NFL season. Not many would have guessed that Houston and Kansas City would dominate their games against their tough opponents. Congratulations to KazooSkinsFan for winning our hognostications last week with an impressive 13-3 record. He edged out our reigning champion TeeterSalad due to the tie breaker. Rounding out the top four were TeeterSalad 13-3, RIC and Countertrey at 12-4. Read the rest of this entry »

With the Saints’ inspiring win in the Super Bowl behind us, and the NFL combine looming, draft time is in full swing. For the Washington Redskins, the main question on everybody’s mind is whether they will take an offensive tackle or a quarterback with their first round selection. There is always the possibility that they will take neither, as there will be talented players at other positions, and the Redskins aren’t really set anywhere other than Tight End. However, in all likelihood they will be looking to aid one of the worst offensive lines of all time with an elite left tackle, or groom a young quarterback to be Mike Shanahan’s guy. Both of those positions currently include two players that could interest the Redskins, who own the fourth pick overall in the draft. Read the rest of this entry »
So last night I went to the Official Capitals’ Away-Party at the Glory Days Grill in Gainesville, Va. Even though I have noticed that there are several Glory Days locations popping up around the area, I had never been to one before last night.
What kind of week did the Washington Capitals have this week? One word; Epic.
Here’s a few things to start off with. Did you know that the Caps have scored four or more goals in all but two of their eleven games this month? The Caps faced down Detroit (who even though banged up is always a dangerous opponent), Pittsburgh, and Phoenix. The Caps scored 13 goals in those three games. They were also 38% on the power play scoring 5 PPG’s on 13 attempts. More impressive, the Caps were flawless on the power-play this week allowing no power-play goals. That’s 0-15 for the Caps’ opponents in the past three games.

So, when last we discussed the Capitals, they had slid into a bit of a slump. They rebounded this week after naming Ovechkin their new team Captain. More importantly, we saw the team starting to get comfortable again. Read the rest of this entry »
Anybody else sick and tired of hearing about the Rooney Rule? Anybody else bored to tears with reading about the politics associated with it? I know it is ironic to ink a blog about it when I’m sick of hearing about it, but isn’t that what blogs are for? Read the rest of this entry »
On Monday night, the Redskins played host to the New York Giants. Obviously, as a Redskins fan it did not turn out the way I had hoped (it actually turned into a living nightmare) but one small aspect of the matchup that stood out to me was not what happened on the field, but who is involved.
In this case, I took a particular interest in the fact that a man in the NFL is representing my hometown of Mayo, Maryland.

Y’know, sometimes I think teams tend to play different when they are missing a star player. I know that seems like an obvious statement and you may be thinking “well of course they play different; they are missing their star player.” Read the rest of this entry »
