      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

I just told my Muslim friend that if I get a 4.0 GPA and a hot Arab woman after she prays for me, I'll convert :silly:

I'm kinda nervous I might have to :paranoid:

How great would it be if you missed a 4.0 by like 2 percentage points in a class. I'd laugh my ass off if you did. Besides, I doubt the Muslim faith would want you anyways.

What if the Arab woman turns out to be really ugly ?

Would that count ?

Or would you just make her wear a Paper Bag over her head, I mean a Burqua ?

OK, I can't believe I'm saying this. I've been beating around the bush for a couple of weeks now. I'm SO in LOVE I can't stand it! I know there are more than a few women on here that are gonna take shot, so go ahead MissU28 and whoever else wants a dig. It doesn't matter. You guys were the ones who kept telling me all women are not the same and I wouldn't believe you. I do now and thank you all for your support. This is too much. I AM FORREST GUMP!:cloud9:

For BLTO's sake, I think it would be funny if you were in love with an Arab woman.

One less opportunity for him :silly:

The Muslim faith wouldn't want him, or the Muslim people ?

I didn't know faith could talk ?

Nice! I played poker tonight too. The best hand I had was turning a straight flush. But we were playing Omaha that particular time, so it's not quite as impressive. Omaha hi-lo split is my favorite.

Nice. I've never played Omaha at a casino, I just stick to No-limit Texas. I know Omaha has a lot of action with crazy hands. I was at the $40 no limit table tonight at Hollywood Park, it gets pretty loose there. I am gonna start playing the $100-$300 no-limit table at Hustler more often cuz honestly I think I can play with anyone. I'm a tight player and rarely play the worst hand. I've pondered becoming a professional poker player, but that would require tournaments. Maybe...I am unemployed right now. I think that might be a foolish move though.

Earlier this month I drove to Vegas on a spontaneous one nighter. Mostly played roulette, but sat down and played in the poker room at the Bellagio. Got there at like 2 am, saw Johnny Chan, Patrick Antonious, John Juanda, Jennifer Harman, and a couple other pros I recognized playing with $1000 chips at some high limit game. Made me feel like I was with the big boys, even though I was at the smaller table.

yeah I will typically just play Holdem at casinos. I have to really come prepared if I want to play Omaha. The casino I go to just past the Oklahoma border has $2-$5 Omaha where the minimum buy-in is $300, but most everyone you will see buys in for about $1000. I've bought in for the min a couple times. One time I left with a slight profit, the other time I got up to about $1200, and was one hand away from cashing out, before losing half of it on one hand (I had the 2nd highest full house and lost to the best one) and then losing it all about 15 minutes later. Yeah that sucked. Haven't been to the casino in a few months though. Just been playing small cash games with friends.

My buddy and I were thinking of going to Vegas in November for the main event final table. I bet that would be a blast.

You should wait and go in December. Not like your football team will be worth watching, then. :evilg:
