      VICTORY!!!
       
      Redskins 23 - 17 Panthers
       
      Will the real Washington Redskins please stand up?
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here, joined by the Spaceman Spiff. 
       
      Seriously, which team will we get to see today. The one solid in all quarters, playing fundamentally sound ball and making us believe that just maybe, this year they could be hanging around at playoff time? Or will it be the one who decides not all receivers should be covered? You know, the one that seems to believe no national embarrassment is too great to suffer.
       
      If I am on this team on this day, I am playing like I have been punked-out on national TV (because I was) and I have something to prove. I am playing with a degree of urgency yet to be seen this year. I am playing like the season is on the line today. Because it literally is as far as I am concerned.
       
      Speak amongst yourselves...
       
      inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 39 CB Adonis Alexander
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 77 G Shawn Lauvao
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
      o   No. 99 DL Caleb Brantley
       
      Ok gang, showtime. Here's to a good game with no injuries. You can follow me live on Twitter @Skinscast. 
       
      See you at the half.
       
      Half
       
      Great start, poor ending. They need to produce in the 2nd half to win.
       
      JimmiJo
       
      This team is consistently inconsistent.
       
      I’m just glad I caught them on the good week. And if there was ever a time to go for two in a row, it’s this week.
       
      I was poised to ask the players how much last week had to do with this. I didn’t have to. Most of the guys I interviewed spoke about getting the bad taste of last week out of their mouth.
       
      To a man they wanted to put it behind them. No better way than to do so with a win against a 3-1 Carolina Panthers. The win preserves Washington’s first place position in the division.
       
      If we are looking for heroes we have to start with Adrian Peterson. Coming in with multiple injuries (shoulder, knee, ankle), all he did was run for 97-yards on 17-carries with a 5.7 yard per carry average. The man is ageless, looking more like a first-year back rather than a guy near the end of his career.
       
      On the other side of the ball was Josh Norman. It was clear in speaking to him following the game that the chatter in the media was starting to get to him. This game was important enough for him that he called a defensive backs meeting this week to get everybody on the same page.
       
      Norman payed like the all-star the Redskins signed in 2016. In fact, the interception was his first since week 16 of 2016. But he wasn’t done. Norman punched out the ball to force a fumble later on a critical drive, robbing the Panthers of an opportunity to score.
       
      Given the talk about Norman and the manner in which the New Orleans Saints bludgeoned Washington last week, it was fitting the game came down to a defensive stand that resulted in Carolina giving up the ball on downs.
       
      This was a total team effort for Washington, with all areas contributing.
       
      Alex Smith went 21-of-36 for 163-yards and two touchdowns. He finished with a passer-rating of 88.1.
       
      Jordan Reed had a relatively quiet five receptions for 36-yards to lead the receivers. Vernon Davis on the other hand, made some noise bringing in 3-receptions for 48-yards to include a beautiful touchdown grab on a seam route that left him largely uncovered.
       
      Smith did such a good job of looking off the safety that by the time he turned back to fire down field, Davis was running free and clear into the end zone.
       
      Another hero on the day was Dustin Hopkins. All he did was kick a 6-yard field goal, the longest of his career. I asked the coach if he had discussed the kick with Hopkins prior to making the decision. Gruden told me it was special teams coach Ben Kotwica who proclaimed Hopkins ready.
       
      “I thought it was a 53-yarder,” said Gruden. “When I heard it was a 56-yarder I thought about calling a timeout.
      He didn’t and Hopkins made him look smart.
       
      The Redskins fare best when they score first. They must be aware of this as they started red hot, jumping out to a 17-point lead before the Panthers got off the snide.
       
      A total of 9-unanswered points later, Washington scored early in the fourth quarter to bring the lead back to 11. That lasted officially 1-drive, as the Panthers marched down with relative ease to score a touchdown and bring the game within 3.
       
      Washington then mounted another drive to register another field goal to take the lead back to 6.
       
      Then a defensive stand was needed.
       
      Carolina was able to move the back to the midfield with relative ease. Washington tightened up and it all came down to a 4th-and-5 at the Redskins 16 with 38-seconds remaining.
       
      That was as far as they would go as Cam Newton skimmed the ball off of the field for a harmless incomplete.
       
      It was a much need win. It keeps the Redskins in 1st place in the division at 3-2 with Dallas coming to town next Sunday.
       
      What’s not to like?

Florida man uses wife's head as mop after sandwich fight

 

FRUITLAND PARK, FL (WESH/CNN) - Authorities said an argument over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and milk ended up with one man's arrest after he was accused of using his wife as a mop.

 

Keith Davidson, 46, was arrested for battery against his wife, who is not being identified. She said he has turned into a monster and showed off bruises on her arm.

 

"When I went to go grab the peanut butter I hit the cup of milk, the cup of milk fell on the floor," the wife said.

 

...

 

Police said Davidson used his wife's head as a mop to clean up the spilled milk on the floor.

 

 

"And to use me as a dish mop, it's not the first, not the second, not the third time. But I can't take no more," the victim said.

What kind of crazy state would arrest a man just for using his wife's head as a mop? You don't want your husband to use your head as a mop? Don't argue with him about his sandwich or knock over the milk. I wouldn't live there for all the tea in China.

Police: Florida boy, 8, tries to rob grocery store at gunpoint

 

WEST PALM BEACH —
An 8-year-old boy tried to hold up a West Palm Beach grocery store Wednesday night, the West Palm Beach Police Department said.
 
The boy walked into King Foods & Meat Bazaar, pulled a loaded gun from his sweater and pointed it at a cashier, demanding money, investigators said.
 
"He was wearing like a motorcycle helmet, and he was wearing a sweater over his mouth,” the clerk said. “He was only showing his eyes."
 
Another employee then snatched the gun from the boy, who tried to escape the worker’s grip, witnesses said.
 
"When I grabbed my purse, it was so light,” said Eboni Alls, the boy’s mother. “I'm, like, I knew I was missing something. I said, ‘Where my gun?’ The first thing I thought was I hope Jaden don't have my gun."

POLICE BLOTTER: Woman faces child neglect charge after being found passed out, naked

 

BAKER — A 24-year-old woman faces a charge of child neglect after she got drunk while caring for a young child, lawmen say.

 

AR-160209177.jpg

 

According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, the woman’s father came home after being away for about two hours and found his daughter, Whitney L. Kilcrease, lying unconscious on the floor with the child playing nearby. When she awoke, she became violent and started using profanity, the father said. She went next door to her uncle’s house and locked the door.

 

...

 

A deputy found Kilcrease lying face-down on the floor without any clothes on. “When I tried to talk to Whitney, her speech was slurred and unintelligible as well as unable to stand,” the deputy wrote.

 

...

 

Later, she told deputies when her father left to run errands she started drinking Captain Morgan rum and doesn’t remember anything after that until she woke up in the hospital.

PBSO: Boynton grandma has sex in front of grandson

 

A 42-year-old grandmother high on Xanax, morphine and vodka had sex in the bathroom of a suburban Boynton Beach’s community gym while her 2-year-old grandson was in her care, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reports.

 

Another child, whose age was not released, told police he saw April Purvis, 42, “having sex” in the bathroom at the Indian Hills community’s rec center with a man and heard them moaning, the arrest report says.

 

Purvis, who faces a child neglect charge, had her grandson in the bathroom with her, investigators say.

The child told police a man emerged from the bathroom and gave the child money to go away. When the boy returned, he saw Purvis unconscious on the bathroom floor holding both her grandson and a knife, he told police.

Florida Senate endorses making computer coding a foreign language

 

TALLAHASSEE - Florida senators overwhelmingly approved a proposal Wednesday to allow high school students to count computer coding as a foreign language course, although questions linger about whether the two subjects should be considered one and the same.

 

The Senate passed Sen. Jeremy Ring’s bill (SB 468) by a 35-5 vote.

 

“With this bill, we’re putting a stamp on it: Florida is a technology leader in this country,” said Ring, a Democrat from Margate and a former Yahoo executive. “We are truly, in this state, pioneering something that I believe will be a very significant trend.”

 

Ring said, if it becomes law, the computer-coding measure — which would take effect in the 2018-19 school year — would be the first of its kind in the country. He said “dozens of other states are looking at this.”

 

But critics of the proposal worry it could dilute students’ cultural education and place a burden on public schools that already lack adequate technology resources. The bill includes no funding to improve students’ access to computers at school, and Ring has maintained his proposal has no financial impact on districts.

Hubby drove with wife ON ROOF OF sport utility vehicle

 

A man who apparently drove several miles with his wife on the roof of his Toyota sport utility vehicle was jailed on a reckless driving charge, according to records and Stuart police.

 

Stuart police about 12:16 a.m. March 22 stopped Richard Addy, 69, after noticing “a female riding on top of a vehicle as the vehicle came to a stop” at South Kanner Highway and Southeast Monterey Road.
 
Police helped the woman, identified as Addy’s wife, off the roof.
 
Addy said they argued after drinks at a restaurant in Palm City and at a bar at a resort on Hutchinson Island. They were staying at the resort because of work being done to their Palm City home.
 
After an altercation at the resort, Addy said he decided to leave.
 
He said he didn’t realize his wife was on the roof of the vehicle, which police reported was a 2011 Toyota SUV.
 
“Addy stated at the first traffic light after the Sewall’s Point bridge, he heard her banging on the roof and realized that she was there,” a report states.
 
He said he kept driving with her on the roof because he lacked a cell phone to call police.
 
“Addy stated that he drove to the Martin County courthouse in the hopes of finding police presence,” the report states.
 
Locating no law enforcement officers there, Addy drove to the intersection where he was stopped.
