      Greetings from the dome that's so Super it should wear a cape. Last time I was here, I was actually in the mist of a four day vacation, sitting in the Club Level in the End Zone watching a former #2 pick tease all of Redskins Nation with what could have been. I vividly remember sitting there a few minutes into the 3rd Quarter  & you could hear a pin drop. There was a voice behind saying "I don't understand..." only to be answered by another voice saying "Why is this happening to us..." That was a Week 1 Opening Day game.
       
      Today, however it's a completely different team on both sides of the ball. And it's Week 11. The Saints lost their first two games only to have ripped off a seven game win streak since then. Are they due for another loss & that streak to end? Maybe. Will the Redskins be the ones to do it? Well....Here's the Injury Report from Friday:
       

       
      Three are already out, a fourth has joined the IR list, & 13 are Questionable. You have a backup Center ready to go. Trent Williams is still banged up with his knee issue & probably should have been put on IR a few weeks ago. Lauvao is had been limited all week with a stinger. Starting Center, Spencer Long is out with a knee. Pro Bowl Guard & former first round pick, Brandon Scherff has been limited all week with a knee issue that's been going on the last few weeks. Right Tackle Morgan Moses is the only starting OL that's actually been a full go at practice this week. That said, this team also went into Seattle with a patchwork OL, fought like hell & pulled off an upset. 
       
      Can they do it again this week? We’ll find out in a few hours.

"Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il Dead (and other North Korea related news)

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere that the average annual salary of a North Korean is about $900. KJI would spend about $600,000-700,000 annually on Hennessy.

Since NK is little more than a puppet dictatorship run by the Chinese, I doubt we'll see much different. It has to be the saddest place on earth.

Are they though? I've read the North Korea thinks China sold out and that China is forever bitter about North Korean refugees flooding their border. I think they're natural allies obviously, but im not sure China is really running anything.

Isn't Kim Jong at least partly responsible that big famine they had in the 90's that killed off 1million or so North Koreans?

The 90s famine was sparked by the collapse of the NK economy, mainly due to the demise of the Sovety Union, NK’s #1 trading partner.

But isn't it partially because of their stand on imports which could have helped their own country?

The way I see it, if you are the supreme leader of a nation, and your people die, you're partially responsible no matter what. I can tell you for damn sure Kim Jong Il never went to bed on an empty stomach.

North Korea's forced mourners...so much crying so few tears.

Sophia Pitrilo once said, "In Sicily when your mother in law dies you dress in burlap and bang your head against a rock...anything to keep yourself from laughing."

Not sad to see Kim Jong il, the brutal dictator, go. But it does upset me that we lost the greatest golfer the world has ever known. According to the NK gov't, the first time he ever golfed he had 11 hole in ones and came in 38 under par; and you know it is true because ALL 17 of his bodyguards verified it.

Personally I'm more distraught that we lost the man who invented the sandwich. So simple, yet brilliant.

Don't forget, in 2004, he claimed to have invented the Hamburger.

No way. It was described by them as "double bread with meat" which is obviously completely different than a hamburger or sandwich. He was a culinary genius.

I think its funny when people mock Asian people's accents, because I bet money you wouldn't say that to their face.

I know a couple of Korean kids that would bust your goofy ass up.

I think its funny when people dont realize what they get worked up about is actually a line from a movie from a certain person this thread is about....

so why dont you get off your high horse and :stfu:............danksssssssssssssss

Not going to lie, I LOL'd when the military guy was crying and smacking the floor. They should sign him up for acting.

Some of it definitely looked forced. Plus, for a country so poor, they definitely had nicer clothes on....hmmmm

Truly bizarre but expected.

Pretty much, when you live in total isolation and are told on a regular basis how bad everyone outside of NK has it compared to you, you have a pretty skewed world view.

There are a lot of people in NK right now that are very upset that he's gone.
