1) The Redskins' Wikipedia page was amended yesterday, adorned with a Cowboys star and the following text:
"The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. area. The Washington Deadskins suck. Go Cowboys."
Creative, nay? Redskins fans responded in kind, with: ""Worst team ever!!!! HAMBURGERS ARE AWESOME!!!" Not sure that I agree with either statement. Boca Burgers are definitely awesome, though. Deuce of Davenport has more.
2) At long last, the AP's Joseph White took a gander at the 700-page playbook, and says that 700 is a "conservative estimate." Fascinating. I would have dropped it off bridges and weighed it and seen whether it floated and stuff like that. The More Credible blog has apparently never heard of the playbook before, which is odd, but they sort of make up for it with a picture of Al Saunders burning down rain forests.
3) You remember Matt LeCroy? The awesome Nats reserve everything? Well, who knew, but he can dance, in a way that suggests the sexual traumatization of bat boys. Harrowing stuff on FanHaus.
4) A Price Above Bip Roberts has included Ralph Friedgen on its list of the 100 Most "Influential" People in Sports. I guess "Influential" is being used in some ironic sense, but I'm not sure that Ralph makes the list of 10 Most "Influential" People in D.C. Sports. Off the top of my head, Daniel Snyder, Joe Gibbs, Gilbert Arenas, Abe Pollin, Gary Williams, John Thompson II, John Thompson Jr., Michael Wilbon, Tony Kornheiser....ok, maybe Ralph's tied with the Lerners and Ben Olsen for 10th. But probably not.
5) And if you like sacrilege, here's a nice discussion of Mark Brunell and whether his various interceptions were caused by Satan, on Jerry's Wheelhouse. If you don't like sacrilege, don't go there. Or at least don't blame me.
