    SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Deputies in Spotsylvania say a 17-year-old is suspected of stealing was shot Wednesday morning. According to the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office, a woman on Forbidden Forest Circle saw a man in her car. When she approached the man, he pulled a mask over his face and began to walk away with items he had stolen from her vehicle. She ran after him, with a man and woman rushing in to help. After confronting the suspect near Harrison Road, deputies say the suspect brandished guns. That’s when the man assisting the woman in chasing down the suspect shot him. Further investigation revealed the suspect’s guns were toys that were painted black. The man who shot the suspect had a valid concealed weapons permit. Police charged a 17-year-old of Spotsylvania with brandishing a firearm, wearing a mask in public and petit larceny. After being treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound to his leg, he was transported to the Rappahannock Juvenile Detention Center. https://www.wric.com/news/crime/juvenile-robbery-suspect-shot-by-bystander-after-brandishing-toy-guns/

    Season Ticket Renewals

    I think they would have a lot of nerve to raise parking or ticket prices, so I guess that means beer and other concessions will go up and/or get smaller. $10 Miller pony bottles? I split my 4 tickets with my brother (1) and a friend of mine (2). When is the "deadline" to decide? I only went to 3? games last year and netted less than face value for EVERY game I sold (gross for Patriots was close, but the net was a loss due to stubhub fees). My brother and I have season tickets to UVA football as well and they have already announced their six game home schedule for 2019 (all home games Saturdays).

The quality of the playing field in Washington has been up for debate for years among fans, and a string of concerts at the stadium this summer could leave conditions a bit worse for the wear when the NFL season rolls around. Luckily, it appears that the Redskins will be laying down a new turf before the season begins, according to NBC Sports Washington. >> I saw this at the end and thought it was interesting. As a STH, I would not mind if there were 0 preseason games at home. The question still remains how the team will navigate their preseason schedule throughout all of this activity, much of which will take place in August. If the turf isn’t ready for preseason play due to the concert series, the team needs to take the right precautions and do something about it. ...knowing Snyder, he will move the preseason games to RFK, relabel them as "Retro", and charge regular season prices. With the endzone seats removed, I think RFK seats around 40,000 which is probably in line with the number of STHs.

    Indian man dies after getting attacked by his rooster on their way to a ****fight New Delhi (CNN)An Indian man has died after a tussle with his rooster -- on their way to a ****fight. Saripalli Chanavenkateshwaram Rao, 50, was hit in the neck with a blade tied to the rooster's claw on January 15. A police spokesman told CNN the father of three was taken to hospital, where he later died from a stroke. Rao, who lived in Pragadavaram village in southern India's Andhra Pradesh state, was a regular at local ****fights, and was on his way to enter the rooster in a competition when it tried to break free, station house officer Kranti Kumar said. https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/22/india/rooster-****fight-death-intl-hnk-scli/index.html I was bummed that the **** did not stab the guy's ****. …..still waiting on a story where a pack of dogs maul Michael Vick and don't bother anybody else.

    Was Keeping "Hail to the Redskins" worth it?

    The KC Chiefs started out as the Dallas Texans in the AF before moving to KC. If the Cowboys had not come to town, the Chiefs would have likely stayed there and that would have made NFL expansion in Dallas less likely and eliminated it once the two leagues merged.

    RIP Former Skin Sam Wyche "Die, you yellow dogs, die!"

    A family friend of ours had worked on a book about him a few years ago. The friend's last name was Stonebraker and the name of the book is Third and Forever. Sam gave him an autographed framed copy of one of the Bengals' plays that Sam had signed and they gave it to me. >> Note from Stonebraker I've just finished a memoir for former head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Sam Wyche, titled, Third and Forever. It is in publication now and will be released in the third week of July, 2017. Coach Wyche invented the no huddle offense and took the Bengals to Super Bowl XXIII. Foreword by Lou Holtz. Enthusiastic endorsements by Dick Enberg, Boomer Esiason, Joe Montana and Cris Collinsworth.

    RIP Former Skin Sam Wyche "Die, you yellow dogs, die!"

    In 1972, Redskin fans couldn’t watch NFC championship on TVs in Washington https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/in-1972-redskin-fans-couldnt-watch-nfc-championship-on-tvs-in-washington/2012/01/27/gIQANXwCqQ_story.html I have the 1972 Game of the Week Highlight DVD that cost me about $50 from NFL Films. I am sure NFL films has the whole game in their possession since they have the game of the week film, but they have no incentive to put the whole game together and sell it. I also was at a Redskins function and asked Bruce Allen if he had a copy of the 1972 game. He did not answer yes or no, but went off on a long discussion of what a great day that was. Anyways, now I know how Indiana Jones feels at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark:

    Skins 2020 opponents

    I look forward to that date in April when the official schedule is released and countless folks on here will gripe about how its the toughest schedule in league history, how the placement of our bye is either too early or too late, and how our Thursday night game is in the most inconvenient spot possible. >> Well if Bruce Allen is still around, I won't be one of those griping as I will have given up my tickets by then.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Let me refresh your memory: https://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/news/article/13039846/the-cranky-redskins-fans-guide-to-dan-snyder Here's the tree incident: U Unobstructed View: What Snyder wanted of the Potomac River from the back of his Montgomery County home. To accomplish this, he cut down trees protected by the National Park Service. The episode marked one of the rare times Snyder got crisis PR help. He retained Mike Sitrick, who helped with damage control for the Michael Jackson family after the pop star’s death and Paris Hilton after one of her arrests. This article is now 9 years old. We need an update!

    I hope we lose a game to London, especially against another one of the dregs of the NFL.
