      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!

Wish there were guards there at the end equipped with pepper spray and/or tasers...

The lady and I got our tickets to see Tool.  Grand total of $300 for upper Deck tickets diagonal from the stage.  Third row from the front of the upper deck.

 

This is the only band in my top 5 still performing, and one of two in my top 10.  The Stones, who are older than the solar system, are still doing it.

 

First time seeing them. I've had to hear about how great their concerts are, and watch cell phone video because they have no live DVDs.  Super pumped.

 

I'm not a music fanatic like some of you are, but I will say that seeing Tool at Lollapalooza in '93 was pretty ****ing cool.  Undertow had just come out, most didn't even know about it.  I didn't.  And I'm sitting there like, ok.....gonna see some band called Tool.........****ing awesome.  Great show.

Saw Tool open for Slayer at the Boathouse circa 94 or so.  These were rowdy, good times.

God I love Sundays. I knock out two shifts while being the only person in the facility for the most part.  Get to be methodical and crafty, my window of time to get there and leave is up to me.  I freaking get to watch football on the bigscreen while doing work during commercials.

 

Watched Texas/OSU last night at work.  My weekends are dominated by work but it's pretty f****** rad.

We didn't have a TV, and I was only scheduled 6-7 hour shifts, but I was never in a big hurry to clock out at the doggie day care. My boss never minded paying me for an extra half hour if I was playing with the dogs. 

Looking back on it--very hard work, lots of poop & pee, but lots of love too. 💖🐶

(We had one occasional boarder, Katie...she **** all over her kennel overnight, every night. I mean up all 3 walls AND the gate. Danced in it all night or something. 💩 Those were the only days I dreaded.)😏

Sorry, Warhead. We know you gave it your best!

The heat made it brutal. My girl started cramping near the end. The team we played against, the girl was a bench player for Penn State women's team(which is basically like the Alabama of womens college volleyball). My girl was tasked with blocking her(reverse co ed format so guys cant block). Its like asking someone with only high shcool football experience to block Khalil Mack.

Yes! While other parts of the country are enjoying Indian Summer, it is currently 94°F here in blistering hot Cedar Park TX.

When cowherd said the cowboys and eagles are going to be elite for the next 10 years I wanted to aim a Nerf rifle between his eyes, but they are together. I loved when Bradshaw called him a buckethead and the whole crew made fun of him afterwards.  The herd is a decent show, but something about cowherd makes me want to kick his face off a tee.  It's like his face is pointing towards his nose. Like a dart board with the descending targets to the bullseye.
