A Brief Appreciation


Recommended Posts

Just for the record ...

The NFL Divisional Playoff weekend is my favorite weekend of the year. Bar none.

Four televised games.

No pretenders -- eight solid teams.

Great story lines for all eight teams that we’ve been following all season long.

Weather’s crisp. Beverages are crisp. Wings and such are hot.

The calendar has been cleared for total guilt-free gridiron immersion.

And, as if it all that wasn’t enough ... guess who's back in the mix?

The Washington Redskins.

God help me, I do love it so.

That is all.

It’s been a long time since I rock and rolled,

It’s been a long time since I did the stroll.

Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back,

Let me get it back, baby, where I come from.

It’s been a long time, been a long time,

Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

Yes it has.

I am amazed by this team. They just don't give up. Against Tampa, it could have gone the way of the Raiders or San Diego games earlier in the season(pre winning streak). Offense sputters in the second half, and the defense gives up just enough for the Redskins to lose. But they didn't. What G.W. has done on defense is amazing. The players executing it is a thing of beauty and destruction. I don't know the outcome of this weekends game, but if any team can upset the football gods, make history and keep thumbing their noses at the media... it'd be these Redskins. They are a confidant and determined bunch. I'm very proud of them. Go Skins!

January is always the best month of the year.

Wild Card weekend for easy money (3 for 3 this week)

Divisional weekend for some great games.

The fact that this is the first divisional weekend in six years that I won't be gambling on all 4 games makes it all the more sweeter.

4:30 Saturday can't come soon enough.......

there was a decorated general with

a heart of gold, that likened him to

all the stories he told

of past battles, won and lost, and

legends of old a seasoned veteran in

his own time

on the battlefield, he gained

respectfull fame with many medals

of bravery and stripes to his name

he grew a beard as soon as he could

to cover the scars on his face

and always urged his men on

all the men held tall with their

chests in the air, with courage in

their blood and a fire in their stare

the men stood fast with their

guns on their shoulders not knowing

what to do with the contradicting orders

the general said he would do his own

duty but he would extend it no further

the men could go as they pleased

not a man moved, their eyes gazed

straight ahead till one by one they

stepped forward and not a word was said

and the old general stood with his

own words echoing in his head

he then prepared to fight.
