      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

It this where we are talking about Trump ruining the 4th of July in DC?  Taking a celebration of this great country and making it a celebration about himself.  I do wonder if there will be trouble between the maga people and people of the city.

This is the correct thread. I've been ****ing about it for a while now. Tanks, VIP sections for sycophants, an address by the fuhrer. **** this whole celebration. Knowing this asshole he's just going to do it again next year. I don't think you're going to have a bunch of MAGA folks running DC though. These guys couldn't even show up for the inauguration en mass

I heard they got baby Trump set up.  Also heard that Trump wants tanks parading through town.  It’s a joke.

It really ****ing is. It's the people's party, the people's land, don't monetize the ****ing 4th with a VIP section. I mean, can you think of anything that is literally LESS American than THAT?

Does he have a plan for repairing the streets after the tanks drive on them? I remember reading about the damage a tank weighing what a tank weighs is likely to do to the streets simply by driving on them. Of course the streets are already in fantastic shape...darn where is that sarcastic emoji when I need it?

Here's a NPS map of the 4th.  Trump's "VIP" area is said to extend from the Lincoln Memorial halfway down the length of the Reflecting Pool.  In other words, just about half of the prime viewing area for the fireworks are off limits to the public.

 

 

Ironic, too, that the Vietnam Veterans memorial may well be part of the restricted space.  So Vietnam vets can't visit the wall while the draft dodger yaps.

Yeah man, soon as I wrote that I was like . . . ehhhh. But I want to hold out the idea of the better **** that we're spoonfed, if for no other reason than to use them as critical principles against the MAGA-ts. But you ain't wrong.

Sheesh. The applea didn't rot too far from the tree either.  First Butthead gets the "birther part deux" with Kamala Harris really going,then today Beavis gets this hashtag trending on twitter. @presidentin2008 .  Sigh. I had to click on that one. Yep. It was something stupid. 

 

 

They're having a field day online with him right now. 

 

 

As for the parade,I agree that's not what we're all about here.  Makes this vet more than just a little uncomfortable with what he wants to do when it comes to military participation in it.  Sigh. The Bicentennial celebration wasn't that messed up for crying out loud. SIgh.

Kim Jon Un had an American tortured and murdered during Trump’s Presidency.

 

Nothing really matters at this point in Trump’s Presidency. He is a raging dumpster fire and the GOP is a brainwashed, cult of personality, living in a fact-free world. 

 

It is up to the public to reject this type of idiotic governance.
