To All the Redskins Defensive Players,
Please don’t pay attention to this picture.
I should have known that last night was not going to end up as mild as I thought it would have. I mean, our intention was just to go over to P and Red’s for two reasons. The first reason was, of course, to watch the Caps game. The second was for Deb to play with their 2 tiny little kittens that they just brought home this week. But it is funny how things kind of spiral a bit out of control after the drinks start flowing.
Once the drinks are flowing, some people can’t hold their train of thought:
The highlight of the night though was Church and his willingness to be stripped of his very last shred of dignity all in the name of good fun. If I remember correctly, everything started out innocently enough. Church no longer lives in the area and would love to be able to come back to DC for the Skins vs Cowboys game next year. The problem is that he just couldn’t justify the expense of the trip. P and Josh said that they would love for him to come back for the game. However, with Church being a Cowboys fan they really had their reservations about even going to the game with him…cause we all know what dicks the Cowboys fans can be. This conversation rapidly went south. Church was talked into (and i use the term “talked into” loosely because he was WAAAY too willing to do all of this) wearing the most outlandish Cowboy outfit we could collectively come up with…..

So, yeah….we are all eagerly anticipating the game next year. It should be interesting.
Last night was perfect weather for a football game and the Skins pulled out the win against the hated Cowboys. Ok, so the win wasn’t the prettiest in the world but it was still a win. And a win against Dallas is perfect…no matter how you come by it. The victory is almost better, for me, because Dallas shot themselves in the foot and killed their chances to win this game over and over with penalties and that costly turnover at the end of the first half.
The game was a nailbiter at the end and I don’t think there was a single Skins fan in the stadium that felt safe when there was 3 seconds left and the Cowboys were on the doorstep. Especially when, after converting on 4th and 10, a fog started rolling over the top of the stadium and slowly started flowing down towards the field. It was really creepy.
We didn’t get an offensive touchdown and we blew a couple of key plays that could have put the game out of reach but thankfully Dallas did not capitalize on the mistakes. Freakin’ LJ running out of bounds with 2:30 left in the game instead of falling to the turf was a really big mistake that could have come back to haunt the team. And Hall laying on the field “hurt” and giving the Cowboys a free timeout down the stretch and then just popping up to move to the sideline really didn’t help. Seriously DeAngelo, you had better be injured at that point in the game to lay on the field like that. The fact that you popped right up after you stopped the clock for an injury timeout really could have cost the team the game. Dallas wouldn’t have had that last timeout to burn with 3 seconds left if you had just crawled the 8 feet to the sideline.
But a win is a win….and the whole night was a blast, check it out:
