  1. A local reporter (Mark Maske) gave the 'Skins an A-freakin'-minus for draft performance! When's the last time THAT happened?
  2. All right, who the HELL is running the draft war room this year, and why has no major media outlet reported on him or her when they were hired?
  3. Never too early to PAY four quarterbacks in one year.
  4. Perpetually cautious optimism. I want to give up at times, and did jump off the season ticket bandwagon very early in the game. But then, something pulls me back in: We've been helping Dad downsize, going through lots of junk these past few weeks. Lots of ticket stubs kept, and then this gem yesterday: Faded signature is <pig snout>, Mikey T, Boss Hoggette Good times back then, hope for more soon.
  5. JuJu's petals, JuJu's petals! Okay, maybe a stretch, but hey, it's Christmas!
  6. Tress effing Way will guide us to the playoffs.

    Tracking Ticket Prices 2018 Season

    Can anyone compare the online instant mobile delivery prices to parking lot hard ticket prices?

    Tailgate and/or Get Together in Tampa?

    Stubhub seems to work best for me for NFL. Seetgeek brings in a few more options sometimes. I have been watching prices for myself, they've dropped a bit this week. If you see a pair of tickets you want at an acceptable price, I'd grab them once you are sure you are going to the game. But if you just want to be in the stadium somewhere, roll the dice and hope to find two together for less than $50 each Sunday morning, either online or in the parking lot. If you buy Sunday online, watch out for tickets you have to print out, BTDT, had to pay $5 at the nearest hotel business center to get my tickets!

    Tailgate and/or Get Together in Tampa?

    If things come together I will get down there Sunday morning for some employment stuff Monday, try to scrounge a single ticket. I'll Uber over from the TPA terminal and wander the parking lots in my Riggo knockoff jersey looking for like-minded people. I will cram as many 3 oz. bottles of good bourbon in my TSA Pre-Check carry-on as I can. ??
  11. I like this little bit of observation a fellow at a major magazine had about our Two Six, who got no love from any other team: I am a fan, and I am excited. Eff the haters! (Ooops, sorry, I guess that's a negative exclamation?)

    Season Ticket Renewals

    1080p projector is easy to move. DIY reflective paint. Instant 120+" screen. Seatgeek 4 hours prior to kickoff on less than desirable games to scratch that itch. Just sayin' . . .
  13. Decided to be an educated person and read the Oneida Indian Nation Wiki, along with a couple supporting articles. The OIN is a multi-million dollar corporation. The Oneida tribe seems to have been inactive for hundreds of years, until there was money in it (IMHO). There is some debate in the tribe itself as to whether the leader and CEO of OIN is even a certifiable member of the Oneida tribe. Kind of takes away from the purity of his pursuit against the team name. Makes it seem more political to me. Love my Redskins, always will.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    I did not reply to the premium ticket solicitation ($120 club seat contract ended three years ago). I did not reply to the "Good news, your seats are available!" letter my wife got (upper level seats we gave up two years ago were in her name). I did not reply to the Soccer Mom acquaintance that offered up her two lower level seats for the season at cost (since Johnny will be playing lots of travel team soccer this year). I did install an 120" HD projector home theater in the basement, for right around $2k. I may buy an orange pass and tailgate one of the lesser games this year, just for old time's sake. If I do, I will wear my knock-off Riggo throwback jersey, because it never goes out of style.
