Start It Off

To start let me say you will see nothing of the Washington Wizards, the Washington Nationals, or the University of Maryland Terrapins football team. I believe the NBA is a joke and when you can’t win more than 10 games in half a season you are even more of a joke. The Nationals will never be my team I will forever be an Orioles fan and always yell O during the Star Spangled Banner. And Terps football no matter who they get will ever be good. With that my teams are the Washington Redskins for better or worse, the Washington Capitals and their explosively potent offense, University of Maryland Terrapins Basketball (the boys as my late father called ‘em) because its always fun to hate DUKE, and the Baltimore Orioles no matter how boring baseball gets you gotta love those O’s.

Since essentially the baseball season is over lets start with the good news. The Caps are on a 6 game win streak, taking on a struggling Islanders team at home tonigh. I did not get to see the game last night thanks to the devils at Comcast requiring me to have a digital device to watch 4 channels one of which being Versus. I did however read about the game and may I say that wow that’s awful. I don’t care who you put in net Varly or Theo, but come on you have to play defense regardless if its tied or your up 3 to a bad team. Ovechkin had his 6th multi goal game in 12 and Thomas Fleischman came back and did some work. They just need to keep it up and put these teams away. Tonight against the Islanders you will definitely see me sneaking an I up at the TV while out for drinks(I have to be secretive here in Philly they don’t like us DC fans that much). C-A-P-S CAPS CAPS CAPS.

Now on to the disgruntled part. I must say what the Redskins have become is a complete travesty. I have been a Redskins fan as long as I can remember The golden Gibbs years to the Heath Shuler Affair and even Pettibon to Turner. Always a fan through and through. Now I’m not so sure I want to be a part of something so Communistic and terrible. Bad seasons happen even bad coaches and good players playing bad. These things happen, but when it comes that point The Owner (yes its capitalized because he’s like big brother or something) should fess up clean out the trash and start anew. What does this mean, you may ask. It means stop making football decisions when you have no idea what the right one should be. Fire your VP in charge of football operations, and hire a general manager who has an idea of how to run a team. Find a quarterback (either by the trade wires or the draft) who can lead a team, and you know PLAY WELL. Finally fire the coaching staff, find a head coach who has the ability to run a team and make the right calls with the general manager and keep your hands off of him. Now I’m no genius when it comes to running a football team, but I have seen what works for other teams and what doesn’t right here and anywhere else it’s like this. I’m sorry Dan Snyder but I think its time to either give up and run it differently or just give up and sell the team.

I really DO NOT want to get started on the new policies put forth by the Redskins organization, but these things should go with out saying. Banning a sign due to what it says (supposing it is not vulgar) is unconstitutional. As well as banning interviews with fans tailgating before the game, also unconstitutional. It may be “private Redskins property” but come on, it is still very wrong and is very much a Big Brother type move.
