Reggie Dunlop R.I.P.

The world lost one of it’s greatest actors and humanitarians this week with the passing of Paul Newman. Old Blue Eyes career spanned over 50 years, entertaining everyone from my grandparents (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), to my 4 year old son (Cars). During that 50+ years he was married to the same woman. “Why go out for hamburger, when you got steak at home?” In between, he raised over $250 Million dollars for charity. A charity that started off by selling salad dressing. Makes you wonder what we all may be capable of?

My favorite Paul Newman movie of all time is Slap Shot. This film could arguably be called the best sports movie of all-time. Its definitely got to make every ones top 5. The dialogue in this movie is awesome. Take a look at this classic scene from the fashion show

So I invite you guys to celebrate a real man’s man. Pop “Slap Shot”, “Cool Hand Luke”, or “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, in the old DVD player. Get yourself something to snack on like Newman’s Own Salsa w/ Chips, or some Newman’s Own popcorn, and grab a cold one. Because its true what they say “they just don’t make them like they used to”.

The Last Word in Big D

The Skins went into Dallas this weekend as 11 point underdogs. No one in the media predicted any upsets, and to be honest, even the most die hard fans did not predict a W. But, this Redskins team is good, and they showed how good they are by dominating this game. Do not let the final score fool you, the Redskins dominated in all phases of the game, and proved to everyone that they are a force to be reckoned with.

Who would have thought that the Redskins would out coach the Cowboys? Jim Zorn came out with a great game plan, and his play calling was awesome. For the first time in 4 years, I have no idea what the Redskins are going to do on offense. During Gibbs 2, I could guess the next play 75% of the time. On the other hand, the Cowboys ran the ball only 8 times to Barber, and Felix Jones got ZERO carries. The Cowboys also had a crucial penalty, having 12 men on the field. This happened after a timeout! That’s COACHING! And you can tell that the coaches listened to TO’s whining. They tried to force the ball into his hands, and it just was not there.

I have to give props to the defense, excellent game. Portis ran strong, Cooley blocked hard, Tana is amazing, and JC is playing at an unbelievable level. Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Lets take care of business this week in Philly, and show everyone why this team is not only good, it is special! We play physical, we win!
