      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.
       
      1st Quarter Redskins 7 - 3 Eagles
      "The Closer" Haskins showed up for work early today and hit his former college teammate for a touchdown.  He really took the life out of this crowd in *checks notes* Fedex Field.

I was just saying somewhere else, the NBA has declined since 2004 so I might as well dedicate myself to the NHL this year until college basketball rolls around. Not much interest in the NBA regular season anymore.

I lost my wallet :mad:

To make matters worse, I have no money on me, and my gas tank is almost empty. I need to drive across town and go to the bar that I think I left my wallet at. I am not sure what to do. Maybe the gas dude can give me credit? I can always try to borrow money from my shady roomates downstairs I guess.

I also really need to have funds at my disposal, because I need to make some very important transactions today.

Real bad start to the day.

*edit* I found it! What it was doing under my bed I will never know. I could've swore I looked there before. Good day today indeed!

Its amazing in this day and age that someone your age doesn't have a gas card. What's worse, is I have a friend that doesn't even own a debit card. WTF?

Melanie Oudin has been amazing so far. Really pulling for this girl. Wasn't long ago she was ranked 221 in the world. Now she's one win away from the semis.

Yeah, but she has to win one more to even have that chance. Maybe two more. Not sure or not if she plays Serena if she wins her next match. Its been a great run, though.

Our receptionist is on her cell phone, while sitting at her desk, talking to her husband and cursing him out. She does this all the time and it really bugs me. Take your call outside, lady. Very unprofessional of her.

The put warnings on cigarettes on what they will do to your lungs.

Why can't they put the same warning, or at least reminder on a bag of prunes, on what they will do to your colon :doh:
