    Anyone have an unused ticket from 12/24/1995?

    I remember that game. I KNOW we sold our tickets to that one to a woman I worked with. I helped my brother in law move that day. Yup, he did his move on Christmas Eve.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    You mean, "Fool's Gold". Typically at least one of three things go up every year: Tickets, Parking, or Beer.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Heck, one year you had to renew the week after the SuperBowl and before the ProBowl. I forget the year, but it was when the ProBowl was played after the SB.

    Leaky space toilet forces ISS crew into cleanup operation Turns out you deal with toilet leaks in space the same way you would on Earth.The crew of the International Space Station had to use towels to soak up about 9.5 liters of leaked water, NASA wrote in a daily summary report.The incident took place as the crew installed a new double-stall enclosure -- which divides the toilet from the hygiene compartment -- in the station's Tranquility module (which at the time, was probably anything but). https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/leaky-space-toilet-forces-iss-crew-into-cleanup-operation/ar-BBTfXJy?ocid=spartanntp No comment.

    My feeling after the Vikings won on Dec 23 and eliminated the Redskins:
  6. It would not be the first time..... who can forget andyman? https://deadspin.com/how-dan-snyder-helped-get-an-enemy-reporter-promoted-ri-1693989144 Karl Swanson, the longtime Snyder spokesman who once told the Post his role was to be the owner's "henchman," went on the Snyder-owned message board, Extremeskins, to direct fans to a page called The Nunyo Files, which was set up as a depository for alleged errors by Demasio. The most bizarre chapter of the team's dirty dealings with Demasio came in 2005, when the moderators of the message board sportsjournalists.com let out that Swanson had registered at that site around the time a poster going by Andyman, who seemingly knew the inner workings of Redskins Park, was ruthlessly flaming Demasio. Swanson, who left the Redskins in 2010, did not respond to a request for comment for this story; at the time, though, he told me that he had indeed registered at sportsjournalists.com, yet claimed, "I am not Andyman." Alas, the henchman's denials notwithstanding, Andyman, who had also been a star poster at Extremeskins, disappeared soon after the outing.
  7. BTW, do these firings count as winning off the field?

    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: The Coal-Stuffed Stocking Special

    Given the clear bag policy in effect at the games, it looks like the only way to wear a bag over your head at the game will be if it is a clear bag.

    Playoff hopes following Titans game:
  10. I am a season ticket holder and can xfer this to you. I am also trying to list this on ticket master as well. The buyer will need to contact me via PM and pay via paypal. ** SOLD ON STUBHUB IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES ** -- great feeling to undercut the over priced Redskins passes on price w/o losing too much. I sold our three tickets and parking pass to this meaningless game.
  11. I wonder if these means the team will go back to selling to brokers and we can get game day tickets for dirt cheap. If that is the case, I'm ready to drop my tickets. I have been a STH since 1999. This crap with bringing in new people to fix problems and throwing them out in 1 or 2 years is getting old.
  12. ...still have it up on the wall outside my cube.

    Eagles vs Skins moved to 425 pm

    -- extra time for the Iggles fans to get boozed up....rooting for Kirk and the Vikings, but hoping we knock them out on our own.
  14. Redskins end up tied with two other teams, lose tie breaker on something weird like "Strength of Victory" (ALA 1979). During the off season, Goodell admits that he doesn't know what that even means or what a catch is either. https://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures For those too young to have lived through this: The 1979 season of the Washington Redskins in American professional football began with the team trying to improve on their 8–8 record from 1978. While the Redskins were able to improve their record; finishing 10–6, the Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention on the final week of the season when, facing the Dallas Cowboys with the NFC East title on the line, Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach led a last-minute comeback to defeat Washington 35–34 to win the division; which combined with the Chicago Bears defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 42–6, resulted in the Redskins losing a points tiebreaker for the final wild-card slot. If I am reading this right, we were +53 on points and the Bears were +57 (which included +36 in their last game of the season). https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/1979/
  15. Lawsuit filed: A Texas educator says she was fired from her job working with speech-impaired elementary school students because she refused to sign a pledge of loyalty to Israel. On Monday, The Intercept first reported, she sued the state and the school district that gave her the boot. “Texas’s ban on contracting with any boycotter of Israel constitutes viewpoint discrimination that chills constitutionally-protected political advocacy in support of Palestine,” reads the lawsuit filed by children’s speech pathologist Bahia Amawi. https://www.thedailybeast.com/texas-elementary-school-speech-pathologist-lost-her-job-for-refusing-to-sign-pro-israel-oath?ref=scroll
