Now I Am Ready For Some Football

Washington at Dallas, Monday Night Football.

For those who don't follow these things, this has been a damned frightening 15 years or so for Redsticks fans on Monday nights vs. Dallas. Almost enough to make you put aside your firmly-held skepticism against the Supernatural and believe in jinxes.

Let's see... They're kicking off now. I've got a good feeling about this one.

[10:48, 2:09 into the second half: Dallas scores on a flea-flicker to go up, 10-0. the Skins look like the Harlem Globetrotters' perpetual patsies, the Washington Generals. Jesus, it's a Calvary rooting for this team... Gonna be a long year, I think.)

(11:23: The way Al Michaels becomes a disgusting, slobbering homer for WHOEVER is leading going into the fourth quarter. I could follow him home and slash his tires. If I were some kind of psycho.)

Sorry, Neddie. The Redskins look awful.

If it makes you feel any better, Al Michaels is sporting a horrific comb-over these days.

Neddie said...

Oh, it's true. Just pathetic. Oh, well. Wait till next year.

Matt said...

Does Gibbs have to go? And what's up with Clinton Portis?

Matt said...

Nice TD! Maybe there is hope, after all.

Matt said...

OH NEDDIE!!!!!

Neddie said...

Oh, EXCUSE MEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2:35 left to blow it. Let's see...

Neddie said...

two fairly inept teams...

Neddie said...

NO CONVERT!!! SEAN TAYLOR! WOO!

Matt said...

yeah, but it's a fun game. that hit by shaun taylor (sp?) was viscious. What a pop.

The D held!

Al Michaels sounds pretty disappointed.

Neddie said...

Dear god, I think we might actually win this one!

Neddie said...

with 36 seconds I AM STILL NOT PUTTING THIS ONE IN THE BANK

Matt said...

I hope so, Neddie.

With Irvin, Smith, and Aikman put on the "Ring of Honor" or whatever it's called, Al Michaels was all set to deliver a valediction on Cowboy heroes past and present. I'm so happy to have that narrative disrupted.

Neddie said...

ten seconds. Wish I was confident. I Am a redskins fan. I have been beaten here before.

Neddie said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Matt said...

What a win!

Neddie said...

Yo, Matt: That was a lot of fun! Thanks for being here!

Matt said...

That was fun, Neddie. Sleep well.

Sluggo said...

apropos of nothing, just saw Friday Night Lights... highly recommended, if now you're ready for some football... does young Freddie Jingo play?

Neddie, expect a visit today from certain Las Vegas "businessmen".

That game took me back to Jurgensen/Kilmer to Charley Taylor.

My son just told me a little while ago that he'd heard the Redskins won. I hadn't even watched the game because I thought for sure that the Cowboys would spank them (shades of Eagles/49ers). Then, got busy w/various things today, worked from home, and didn't even check the score.

The Neddie/Matt exchanges means now I don't even have to read the papers! Thanks, fellas.
