      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!

Sunny and 72 today.  Great day at the park with The Dude and the pups.  Opened every window in the house. 

 

Think I'm gonna sit out on the back porch tonight, roll one, and get the fire pit going.  

 

**edit** Sundays in the fall are so much more pleasant when the skins aren't playing.

Eli looks dumb with his helmet on. But with that ball cap and ear piece he’s taking things to a whole new level.

Looking for suggestions if anyone has ideas on improving my chances in a credit card transaction dispute.

Bought some concert tickets from Vivid Seats and there was a mistake in their processing of the tickets which kept me from being able to use the tickets, so I missed the concert.

They are refusing to issue a refund, by not taking responsibility, and claiming it wasn't their fault, when I made sure I did everything correctly prior to the purchase.

Even a supervisor refused to help me.

I am disputing with my credit card company, but that can be a long process and there's no guarantee they rule in my favor.

Is there anything else I can do, to try to force their hand into doing the right thing and refunding my money ?

Discover

We primarily Discover and they are very consumer friendly.  If you dispute, they put the burden on the seller.  I'd tell them what happened and I'm sure you'll be fine.

That's the feeling I get from them. I was just making sure to cover my bases, if there's any other legal means or types of "pressure" to put on the company.

I actually have screenshots of my transaction, which should prove to any reasonable mind, without a doubt, that they made a major mistake. So I'll see how it plays out in the dispute. Thanks for the reassurance.

I meant the Lesbian neck of the woods. Although there are Lesbians here in the Austin metro area, my friends live globally.

 

On another note, local weather report forecasts 100°F tomorrow. Already 17 days of over 100°F this year.

Im down, so long as everyone else drives reasonably sane. But I guess thats the problem driving in an area with all kinds of weather, and full of gump transplants.

 

2 centimeters of snow and everyone starts trippin'

I just spoke to Discover about the incident and they said this issue does not fall under their "Category E" in order to file a dispute. So they could not help me.

They only recommended I file a claim with the BBB try to get my money back. You agree that's the next best step ?
