Wow. It's been 3 whole months since I last wrote a blog on here? Bummer. Well, I'll fix that right now.
We've all seen the game Sunday night. Forget everything, but 7 seconds of the game. Focus instead on the last 4 seconds of the 1st half...and DeAngelo Hall stripping the ball and running in the end zone. That's all the offense the Redskins had...from a fricking defensive back!!
Then, think of the last 3 seconds of the game. I don't care whether you were at the game, or watching at home in the D.C. area(s)...or for that matter, the Dallas/Fort Worth area(s)...you HAD to run the gamut of emotions on this play. From screaming at your TV, "HOW do the Redskins blow a 13-point lead??", and then hearing the ref say "Holding, offense"...finally, we beat the effing Cowmunchers!!!
Wonder where this game ranks among the all-time games in this rivalry? Anyone want to venture an opinion?
Now, about the TV Azteca chick and the situation with the Jets...who would've thought Clinton Portis nailed this on the head?
I'm not gonna venture an opinion on whether "Jerome From Southeast" is right or wrong. But in an age where the Erin Andrews peephole video is on the Internet...where any teenage (or college-age) kid can see it...you've got to think there's a fine line between "acceptible" attire for locker room interviews and dressing like a slut.
Still, the line about seeing 53 "packages" (his words, not mine) proves we haven't learned our lesson from the Lisa Olson case. A refresher course, for the pro bloggers here at CBSSports.com...
Lisa Olson was a writer for the Boston Globe in the late '70s/early '80s covering the Patriots. One day, apparently after a game, she goes into the Pats' locker room--where the players, ahem, "show her the goods". (All with the coaches'...and the owner's...consent, BTW.) Long story made short: she sues the Patriots (and/or the NFL), and wins a judgment against them.
End result being, a new policy across the sports landscape...closing off locker rooms for 30 minutes after a game to give players time to get dressed (or at least covered up in a "non-threatening" way), and then opening up for interviews. It's served us well for 30-some years...until this.
Trust me, there's a reason Erin Andrews doesn't do locker room interviews. 90-some players with (potential) raging hard-ons? Who are WE b.s.ing, people?
Anyway, that's my take. Yours?
