      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.

How do you even hesitate to review that? They clearly had zero clue what to call. 

 

Justice will be done thankfully.

Cavs are gonna win this series. Lebron went off to sow his wild oats and came home a man. I hate to admit it but it's the truth.

The Cavs are winning this series.

Warriors are losing a little bit of themselves every game out there

 

 

Warriors in..........8!

 

I think its done now too.  Hoping the Warriors pull through, but I think that the Cavs are the better team right now and I don't know if they can dig themselves out of the hole.  If the Cavs win game 4.......gonna get ugly.

Lebron is two wins away from being the GOAT. Single handedly winning a title.

 

I will admit I haven't watched Golden State all year, they BLOW.  Steph Curry looks silly.

No, he's not.  Even if they pull it off.  There is one GOAT, and I'll give you a hint, his initials are M.J.

I don't know man. That fourth quarter was the first time Cleveland really looked worn down and Golden State looked energized. Cleveland has essentially been playing a seven man rotation. You have to wonder how long they can keep it up. The defense of Tristan Thompson and Dellavedova really suffered down the stretch and that's what has been powering them in this series. And it took them hitting some absolutely crazy shots to finish the deal.

I think that Golden State can build off what happened at the end of this game. Curry found his range and they figured out they need to be playing David Lee instead of Bogut.

Pretty sharp when there's no real pressure. He should do well in the Olympics.

The pressure is not at it's highest in the first half. :)

Say whaaat? He's in the Finals, there couldn't be any more pressure on him. He almost just brought the Warriors back in a game where they were getting run off the court. That was incredible.

People are so entrenched in this, but Lebron winning a title with this team would be more impressive than anything Jordan did. He's basically winning with a YMCA squad.
