I just now realized, it's been almost 3 months since I last wrote a blog here. Damn, I'm slipping...
Anyway, to make up for lost time, here goes.
Now that the Redskins have basically screwed themselves out of the playoff picture...and let's face it, how do you let Brett Favre run out the clock??...it looks now as though they'll be playing the spoiler role these next 5 weeks. (Or not.) Why do we go through this year after fricking year? I ask you, WHY??
I mean, between the Skins and Wizards, it's nothing short of a miracle I still have my sanity. But at least as far as the Wizards go, there's some sense of hope...and his name is John Wall. (That is, when he can get on the floor.) It's his team now, not Gilbert Arenas'. Maybe in another 2 years we'll talk contender...maybe.
As concerns the Nationals: now that Adam Dunn's walked, WHO is our (long-term) 1B? At least they've done the right thing, and protected Chris Marrero from next week's Rule 5 Draft by putting him the 40-man roster. But while we wait and see if he can make it to Syracuse to start next season (or go back to Harrisburg), who do we get to man 1B in the meantime? Big names, Mike Rizzo, big names...starting pitching and a first baseman, that's what we need!!!
So, lo and behold, that leaves the Capitals to talk about.
If this team does NOT win a Stanley Cup...and this is just my view...then this season (like last season) is a complete failure. There's way too much talent on the Caps to go down the tubes in the 1st round (again!!). Totally unacceptible, to be honest.
So that covers it. I should make mention of another place to showcase my writing...find it at www.greatjake1958.wordpress.com (if you can...lol). I'll cover sports on there once in awhile; it's mainly for other topics.
I'm done now...LMAO
