The Ram Hunt of 2008 Revisited

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

The Ballad of Big John (Riggins)

I first heard this song on WPRW on the AM radio of my parents car way back in the day. Over the years I had randomly searched for the tune thru Google & Youtube but never had any luck. Truthfully, my memories had failed me and I thought the song had been about Dave Butz and I thought the hook was “Big Bad Butz”. Thus the reason I never found the song. Luckily, Redskins fan Brendan Severo (@MWCRedskin) tweeted out a link to this video. I have transcribed the words below…I love this song and I’m glad I now have my memory straight.

Ps…Good luck getting this song out your head, your welcome. FP

Big John, Big John

From Deep in the heartlands where the buffalo roam
Came an American Legend called Centralia his home
He stood 6’2’’ weighed 245
Folks say he was the fastest white man alive
Big John

Big John, Big John

Well the playoffs would start & expectations was high
He went in Joe Gibbs office looked him square in the eye
Lookie here Joe I plan on winning it all
& the only way to do it is by giving the ball
To Big John

Big John, Big John

Well he ran thru the Lions like crap thru a goose
& what they did to Minnesota some called it abuse
The chant “we want Dallas” started shaking the stands
Big John didn’t disappoint none of the fans
Behind Grimm & Jacoby, Bostic & Starke
He stomped on them Cowpokes like it was a walk in the park
One thing stood between Big John & his goal
Had to Skin him some Dolphins in the ultimate bowl

Big John, Big John

We was trailing by 4 with time running out
Coach sent in a play that left little doubt
He called 70 Chip & Didier went in motion
Then he ran the other way, he caused a big commotion
Big John took the ball bust out like a torpedo
Swatted that fella McNeil like he was a mosquito
Well he scored a touchdown & we won the game
& Big John kept running right to the Hall of Fame

Big John, Big John

Cheers and Hail

DeMarcus Ware’s Depends May Come In Handy On Thanksgiving

DeMarcus Ware is in a Depends commercial…I’ll give you minute to let that sink in. A 29 year old athlete in the prime of his career is in a commercial about a product that promotes shitting yourself.

I fully understand that the commercial is done for charity and that the proceeds are used in an effort to promote prostate cancer. I am in no way trying to make light of cancer or what people who are dealing with it go through. I, like everyone else, have lost a loved one to cancer…F&*K cancer.

That being said, when a Dallas Cowboy is talking about wearing an adult diaper…that’s a blog opportunity that I can’t pass up. Clay Matthews and Wes Welker also star in the commercial, they should put Depends in the gift bags they hand out at the Pro Bowl.

On a side note I sharted as I wrote this post.

Cheers and Hail

Rare Find: 1983 Washington Redskins Basketball Team

Click to enlarge

While rummaging thru some of my Redskins memorabilia I’ve collected over the years I came upon the above gem. It’s a flyer for a ‘Redskins-Basketball’ exhibition game that was sponsored by The Record Den. I attended the exhibition game which was held at Stonewall Jackson HS in Manassas, VA sometime in 1983.

The back of my flyer was signed by Todd Leibenstein, Rich Milot, Tony Peters and Art Monk. According to the notes that I wrote on the back, there were actually 2 games played that night. One saw the Redskins defeat the Manassas Journal Messenger by a score of 39-35. The other game featured the Redskins vs. The Coaches and the Skins won that game 35-34.

I do remember the game and collecting the autographs after. Somewhere, I have photos of the games but I’ve yet to find them. I wish I could remember what kind of low-post game Joe Jacoby had or what type of ball-handling skills Joe Washington brought to the table but I was only 9 years old at the time and I’ve had a shit ton of beers since then.

The Record Den’s flyer brings it’s own amount of awesomeness to the table. The pictures of the latest technology (Walkmans, projection tv’s and Colecovision) send me further down memory lane. Remember, The Record Den can handle all your antenna needs.

I never took my autographed flyer to The Record Den to receive my “special discounts” so I’m worried that I may have missed out on 10% off Frogger. No worries, I was always an ’Erol’s’ kid anyway.

Cheers and Hail

Photoshop by Oliver Morris

5 years ago the Redskins signed London Fletcher to a 5 year $25 million dollar contract. I don’t think it’s a stretch to call this signing the best free agent acquisition during the Dan Snyder era. All Fletcher has done during his tenure is play in all 80 regular season games, collect 705 tackles and earn 3 Pro Bowl trips. Along the way he also was chosen as a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, an award to merit his off-field community and charity involvement. Somehow, he also found the time to become a reality show TV star as a judge on ‘The Voice’.

Haha, I kid about the Cee Lo Green reference, but even his teammates have seen the resemblance. In all seriousness, London Fletcher is the anti Albert Haynesworth…London Fletcher is a consummate professional. He played middle linebacker 12 seasons before making the transition to inside linebacker in the 3-4 defense. Fletcher never said a negative word about the transition and has thrived in Jim Haslett’s defense, making 2 straight Pro Bowls to go along with 302 tackles over the last 2 seasons.

Fletcher clearly hasn’t lost a step, in fact, one could argue that he’s getting better with age. London is the heart of the Redskins defense and one of the true leaders on a team that lacks leadership. In my opinion, resigning Fletcher is a must for the Redskins.

Cheers and Hail

When It Comes To The Redskins I Have Plenty To Be Thankful For

Sometimes, although not intentional…I believe that my site gives off negative vibes towards the Redskins. I guess the 13 wins and 29 losses over the past 3 seasons have contributed to the negativity. The truth is I love the Redskins more than most things in life and they’ve given me many things to be thankful for over the last 30+ years.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you my list of Redskins related things that I’m thankful for…in chronological order from when I was a kid until now.
