      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!

What would actually be in it. The guy is destroying all the papers of his administration,  despite that being a no no. 

 

Just video of his maga rallies.

It would only contain the Mueller Report, finally available for all to read.

Wait...both sides at the same time?

 

I mean it's not like she's going to do anything, but still.

I am borderline as to whether the Trump 4th of July Fiasco on the Mall warrants its own thread.

A plan to fly a “Baby Trump” balloon on the National Mall during President Trump’s July 4 address will go forward, organizers tell Washingtonian. Code Pink’s national co-director Ariel Gold says the group received a permit from the National Park Service to display the 20-foot-high inflatable during Trump’s “Salute to America” event, plans for which include a Trump speech at the Lincoln Memorial, music, and a relocated fireworks display (though details are still scant). The National Park Service did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

 

Gold says Code Pink will have miniature Trump balloons, too, and will call for “impeachment, no war in Iran, and more.” It’s not yet clear what other groups plan protests during the usually non-partisan event, which the President has politicized to the dismay of many DC-area residents.

Another "family values" Christian male found cheating on his wife.

 

The handmaids tale is the ultimate fantasy for these dopes.

Pretty sure talking out of both sides of her mouth was a job requirement.

It does, it's supposed to be a holiday for all of us, not just some of us.  There's a reason we don't politicize the 4th, I mean it went so well the last time

Anyone who has worked in the DC politics arena knows its one giant incestuous circle of swamp monsters, media included. When I worked at a think tank run by former people from the Reagan and Bush Sr. WH, I got to see just how gross this city can be with insider favor trading. In this case, this is how media members keep access, even though Huckabeast was by far the biggest gaslighter to hold this job in a long time.

If you’re gonna take the time to show up to the going away dinner, I’d imagine its just professional courtesy to bring your dignity.

 

Youve got the rest of your life to clown her without mercy, if you like.  And you will, and you should.
