      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.

Trump Border Wall Post-Shutdown Discussion (Wall-Fight)

I disagree with canceling SOTU. Think it's petty, grandstanding, and an incredible break from our nation's norms. 

 

And before somebody points it out, OK, maybe it's not as bad as the shutdown. But two wrongs, and all that. 

The SOTU has not been cancelled. The President has been disinvited from going to Congress to read it. He can still write it and Pelosi welcomed him to hand it in.

I also think it's a step over, technically. We are now operating in such a uniquely petty realm with the Petty banner being flown from the executive branch, that some flexing can be forgiven here and there, at least by myself.

 

I won't dispute those who condemn her for this but I won't condemn her yet. Ultimately all she's doing is chafing him to get the government re-opened so I see a greater good here. It's a trap. If he wants his sweet 16, he's going to have to clean his room.

The other thing is, when dealing with a bully you have to stand tough. If you give in initially that bully is going to get worse and worse. Pelosi is in the infancy of her Speakership. She can't afford to be spineless. She has to stand up to him. If she doesn't he will get more and more monstrous. We've already seen his trespasses grow worse with each month in part because the GOP majority is unwilling to stand up to him on any issue.

There is no requirement for the President to make a nationally televised speech

 

The Constituition calls for far less. I would like to see is return to a simple letter to Congress

I don't think the president is capable of stringing enough sentences together to be able to write a coherent letter.  Hell, he can't even write coherent tweets.

Uh, I'm pretty sure that we have had barriers for at least a decade (probably more than one) where I think "wall" is the correct label. In some places, like where cities push right up against the border. (I think San Diego is one of them?)

Looked online and it would appear as though you were correct. I'm almost never wrong about this sort of thing so I'll just say that I'm thoroughly impressed with how quickly you put those fake websites up and got them to number one on the google search results.

**** Trump and his "state of the Union"

Here it is in a nutshell:

 

Lie

Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again.

Breathe (loudly, through the nose so as to keep the powdered ritalin going.)

Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. Lie again. 

 

**** him. Why give him the pulpit to do exactly what we know he will do?
lie, divide, gaslight, misinform, and attempt to further Russian interests.

 

State of the Union: A Russian stooge in our president and he is blatantly working to further Russian interests. 30% of our nation supports him doing it.

Hes a traitor and you all know it. Hes just going to lie to everyone - again. Like hes has done from day one. Its not petty to stop him from doing that when he has shut down the government. If anything its patriotic.

I can't believe we're in a place where elected officials are debating whether or not to RT a Cardi B rant about the shutdown.  

 

And the one Senator who tweeted "OMG, I had the same argument with myself 30 minutes ago!" like a teenager...just get the **** right out.

Now Trump's economic advisor, hassert, is telling fed furloughed employees to talk to their supervisor for help getting a loan? How am I supposed to help?

 

What's more, while furloughed, I am not supposed to do anything job related.  The employees whom I supervise have no supevisor to ask for help during the shutdown. I think the most charitable assessment I can give for this advise is that it is based on real abstract theory with little practical application in the real world due to how the furlough is actually implemented. For now I will just hope my employees dont expect miracles from me.

One question I saw that was interesting regarding the Pelosi SOTU business.  I'm pretty sure none of us know the answer but it's fun to discuss.

 

What if Trump says F it and goes to Congress anyways?  Do they attempt to not let him in?  Do DC police get involved and have to go as far as arresting people for trespassing?  Does Secret Service have to pick a side?  Does Trump try to call up a small amount of National Guard to help him get in?  Like WTF would even happen if he tried something like that?

 

It's just the type of power play I could see him try.

 

Capitol Hill Police would block the entrance to the chamber. When he tries to push his way past, officers would restrain him physically while Secret Sevice agents, who’ve been working for a month woithout pay to protect his slimy ass, stand by and smirk. 

 

Officers frog walk him and then drag him out of the Capitol and, ironically, as his feet bounce along the marble floor, it aggravates bone spurs in his heels, which become infected. The infection spreads, leading to his agonizing death. 

 

Im not bitter though.

Better yet, Capitol police shout "Freeze! I said Freeze!" and then moments later... I kid. I kid. I think.
