      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!

Dviands, it sort of depends on what you're doing with the gun -- I don't believe that merely having one is family-unfriendly. I know on this thread I've seen at least one picture of an Army guy in the desert with his service weapon. I don't know if it makes a difference, but for what it's worth, I'm an active duty Marine.

And besides, a day at the range can be good family fun! Just follow the rules and be responsible.

Blondie, thanks for the compliment! (he says, blushing...)

I got it too... after you explained it. Sorry about that. I'm used to some people being so anti-firearm that no use, exposure or ownership is acceptable. It has become somewhat of a reflex to respond the way I did with you.

Your post was pretty funny when read in context. :cheers:

Some pics of me are located here.

But I don't think you can view them unless you are a myspace user. I don't know if this will work, but here is one:

index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=16266397&imageID=110645871&Mytoken=20050621150412

And yes, I know I'm dead sexay.

Edit: :doh: the image thing didn't work. Oh well, you're just going to have to sign up for myspace to see my pics! :psyche:

Not me, but the guy I was there to see (Liam feckin' Gallagher of Oasis :D )

Phillies Red Sox game-- If you like visiting ballparks, Citizens Bank Park is great. Best park of any sport I've ever been to. Great atmosphere, concourses and sightlines. I like it better than Yankee Stadium and Camden Yards, hopefully the builders of the new Nats park can take a lesson.

Todd,

I'm a big Oasis fan too. My brother who is currently living in England recently saw both U2 and Oasis in Manchester. He emailed me the day after the Oasis show and said it was unbelievable....and way better than the U2 concert.

That's very cool. I'd love to someday see an Oasis show in England for the atmosphere. From what I've seen from bootlegs/DVDs, they are insane.
