Today Clinton Portis tweeted Chris Cooley the following message:
I remembered the video immediately, and how it was awesome on so many different levels. Watching it now it seems like it was yesterday, but so long ago at the same time. It’s been a half decade ago and Cooley and Portis have retired, well only Clinton officially. The Cooley Zone was one of the very best sports blogs on the Internet and I was both proud and lucky enough to be apart of it.
The Cooley Zone had some great posts that still hold up to this day, and if you search the site you’ll find pure blogging gold. Here’s a link to the highlights of 2008. Of course the only problem with blogging as an active athlete is how disgruntled fans and media can spin a video like this. If the Redskins win it’s laughs all around…if they lost then it was because Cooley & Portis don’t take their profession serious enough. I can promise you this, I’ve watched the Redskins for 30+ years and no players gave as much on the field as these two guys.
Thanks fellas for the memories on the field and for this 2 minute video, which is the best 2 minutes you’ll spend on the Internet (not including PornHub) today.
Cheers and Hail
ps. I miss your musk Vladimir
