      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

I've been with the wife since 2003....but before that, onlinebootycall.com was the ****. Got soooo much cheeks off there

Dude, lmao, I love when you write something about gettin' cheeks. God damn that's funny. Funny cuz it's true. There aren't many things better than bouncing some cheeks. Damn lap starts to feel good when it's tappin' on those CHEEKS.

Cheeks cheeks cheeks.

Hilarious.

Yall ever been with a girl who didn't like givin' cheeks? I swear man, doggystyle hurts some of 'em. Def the most intense position, outside of the domination ****. Some girls can't handle it. That's when I start to bust out excuses as to why I can't chill anymore. Such as, "I dyed my hair green and my friend is getting it out for me." Aka: "I'm gonna **** two other girls tonight."

I thought the worst part of living in Philly is living in Philly.

If you knew what it was like to grow up in the Dc area off of chinese carryout, then move and have to face eating chi ken wings without mumbo sauce, you would understand

My soul, the very essence of my being, hurts for that man

You could be taking advantage of potentially hilarious situations Taze. If someone was to walk up to you wanting you to sign something about stopping "Abusive poppy mills" just say "I hate dogs" and keep walking. or if someone tries to talk to you about breast cancer say that "I'm more of an ass person" and walk away.

 

That's not even a little bit funny. Perhaps you need humor school.

Then more attention whoring after that absurd comment.

Geez.

 

Is there anyway I can get promoted from Field Goal Team to like Tailgate Ring of fame or at least give me something unique even if its bad like Idiot person or something

 

What's wrong with being on the field goal team ? Somebody has to do it.

Got home with lil springy today. Wife is beat, I'm tired too but in going to go play some hockey tonight to get out of the house. Being cooped up in the hospital for 2 days wasn't any fun.

Introduced lil springy to our two dogs. One, a chihuahua miniature pincher mix mutt, was fine with him. Smelled him and then went back to normal. Our other dog, a new guinea singing dog, was a bit more curious. He sniffed him, licked him, did some strange thing where his teeth were chattering while smelling him. I get a little concerned about the NGSD around the baby because he is an aboriginal dog and goes mostly on instinct. He's as well behaved as he can be but he likes to kill little critters. It's a fine line between letting him socialize with lil springy and exerting my dominance over him so he doesn't get rough with the newborn.

It's nice to be home, on my couch, watching my tv, with the little guy sleeping on my chest.

A WHAT? Where in the jungle did you find HIM?

The fine line you speak of, socialization vs. dominance, just keep playing that game man. Your dingo dog will understand with time...and probably not that much time. He'll ease up after being around him a lot. Right now it's just new.

This Maltese likes to EAT crickets. It was noisy as hell in this place before I started bringing him home. Now, it's eerily silent. No wonder he's a healthy boy now, getting that cricket protein! SMH. Anyone need some unused bottles of bug spray?

My wife used to run her own dog walking business (she's now a technician for a veterinary cardiologist). One of her clients owned two New Guinea singing dogs. They had a litter of 4 at one point, only 1 survived. The following year, they had a litter of 5. She gave us the pick of the litter. For such a rare breed of dog, we couldn't pass it up. For a time, some of his brothers and sisters were at the San Diego and Toronto zoos.

I truly beautiful breed of dog, but he is a handful.

If you have any further interest, google New Guinea singing dog and you'll find out all sorts of interesting info. They were a featured breed in one of Dogs 101's episodes on rare breeds.

I did do a Google search, then a quick Wikipedia overview. That's why I said "dingo dog" :). Says they're from China originally, then were brought to New Guinea. I don't trust those Asian dogs. The Akita my family had when I was 7 mistakingly bit me on the face, gave me 7 stitches. He also bit people out of protection. We didn't get sued because my family warned both people (neighbors of ours) and they didn't listen. Still, c'mon bro Akita, ya ain't gotta bite brah. Shiba Inu's and Chow Chows are sketchy, halfway-feral puppies too, both asian breeds.

Now that you're paranoid, I will bring ya back down by saying that they're still trainable. Just gotta deconstruct those genetics a little more. You'll be fine. It's day three :).

Helllll yes, Homestar Runner.

 

I think the Brothers Chaps have been working on the Aquabats and Gravity Falls over the past few years, but I'm glad they're getting back to their roots. I would wait every week for the website to update when I was in high school.

Yeah I knew about their work on The Aquabats. Ska isn't really my thing anymore but goddamn was I a fan back in the day, and love those guys have been able to create a Kids TV empire between The Aquabats! Super Show and Yo Gabba Gabba. First time I watched that show with my niece I immediately recognized the character design and called her mom flipping out about how that lame ska band I liked created her kid's favorite show.

Damn great to have them back to their roots though, and that Strongbad has gotten with the times and gotten himself a twitter account.
