Damn, I simply MUST write here more often...lol

     You know, 13 months is a hell of a long time between blog posts on here.Surprised Which is why I'm taking time out (from rebuilding everything on my computer) to do just that...writing here, I mean.
     One thing that surprised me in these intervening 13 months--and I'm not ashamed to say it truly was a surprise--was seeing the Nationals come oh-so-close to a .500 record last year. Now if we can just get Prince Fielder to sign on the dotted line, I'll be such a happy man...lolWink
     On the other hand, the Redskins and Wizards still suck. Duh. At least the Capitals are getting better under Dale Hunter. (When last I wrote here, Bruce Boudreau was at the helm. 3 weeks into this season, he got canned.) If the season ended now (1/4), they're barely in the playoffs.
     This is not good, people.Frown
     At any rate, if you wish to follow me elsewhere...here they are:
     I think that covers everything (until the next time...who knows, maybe another year?? LMFAO)

Wow, I've been away THAT long?

     I just now realized, it's been almost 3 months since I last wrote a blog here. Damn, I'm slipping...Embarassed
     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?Yell 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.Surprised (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?Undecided 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.Frown
     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

There's STILL time for CBS Sports to do right...

     I'm not sure if this particular blog entry will get seen, seeing as how it's CBS Sports overseeing what we write...Undecided
     But I guess somebody has to speak the unspeakable. Namely, here's hoping CBS has the lowest-rated Super Bowl on record. Not because of the actual game itself (which, IMO, the Saints win), but on account of one ad.
     Anyone want to venture a guess which ad I'm talking about?Frown
     Let me make something clear here and now. Even those who call themselves pro-choice wish that abortion were rare in our society. But there's a time and place to speak about abortion. A Super Bowl, any Super Bowl, ain't the place.
     Which brings me to the self-rightious a-hole, Tim Tebow, and his mommy. You know by now CBS Sports has allowed an ad from the homophobic "Focus On The Family" organization to run during this Sunday's game. Basically it's Tim Tebow saying "Oh, thank you, Mommy for not aborting my pious a*s*s!!!"
     Super Bowl Sunday is as close as we get to a religious "holiday" in this country (short of Easter and Christmas Day, which really are religious holidays) that all of America can share. WHY CBS Sports feels they have to shove such a warped sense of morality down normal-thinking Americans' throats, by airing this piece of crap, ia a mystery to me...Surprised
     And yet, this is the same CBS Sports who gave us the "wardrobe malfunction" 6 years ago...during a Super Bowl, yet!!Embarassed And turned down an ad (for a gay dating site) for this Super Bowl. (I saw a snippet of this ad. It's of two guys...one wearing a Packers jersey, the other a Vikings jersey...who lip-lock at the end. I thought it was funny.Smile Gee, this is what CBS thought "offensive"??Sealed) Man, you want to talk hypocrisy? Don't you think CBS Sports is engaging in it big time?
     But let's get back to "Moses" Tebow, shall we? Now I'm starting to hear rumors that the Redskins...MY fricking Redskins, for Christ's sake!!!...seriously are considering drafting this piece of morality filth. You know, I only talked about holding a bonfire for my Gilbert Arenas jerseys.
     If Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen do this to Redskins Nation, I may not be the ONLY one burning FedEx Field and Redskins Park to the ground my Redskins jackets/T-shirts/flag(s)/blanket(s) in protest.Yell You want to talk "false Messiah", people? Bad enough you've got people railing against the President, and labeling him that. The REAL "false Messiah" will spout his brand of hate speech this Sunday night.
     It's just America's gotten TOO damned stupid to see it. Because they're sitting slack-eyed at their TV sets, waiting for the Budweiser ad (or the GoDaddy ads, for that matter) to come on...this piece of offensive monkey dung will zip in and out so fast they won't realize they've been brainwashed.Frown
     Just like CBS Sports...

I'm at a crossroads now, because of "Agent Zero"

     I'm amazed people actually read this little blog of mine. So, as not to disappoint those of you who do read...and enlighten those who don'tLaughing...this next piece should do the trick.
     Up until now, I've remained silent of the whole Gilbert Arenas/Javartis Crittenten brouhaha. But the more I keep reading (and hearing, and seeing) about it, I can't stay silent any longer. It's gone too far.
     I could put up with Gil's extorting Ernie Grunfeld (and Abe Pollin) out of $111 million for so little to show for it. (Personally, I wish Gil would've given back the money for the first year of the deal...but that's just me.) Even up to a few days ago, I would've been proud to wear a Gil jersey around the neighborhood.
     But now...after hearing how Javartis Crittenten had a gun of his own, locked and loaded...it's no longer a laughing matter.Embarassed
     The last straw for David Stern (and for that matter, Wizards fans) came Tuesday night in pre-game warmups. Hope some of you had the chance (before the NBA took it down) to see the picture of Gil using the "finger gun" technique, surrounded by his teammates. Bad taste? Damn right it is.Frown I guess Gil and Javartis didn't get the memo concerning the collective bargaining agreement between the NBA and the players' union.
     It specifically states: NO guns, anywhere on or near a NBA facility. No excuses, no exceptions.
     The question now is not so much how long the suspension lasts, but rather WHEN "Agent Zero" will be sent packing by Wizards management. Guess I could always hold a bonfire for my jerseys. Just pick the day, is all. Head for www.radio-free-ashburn.groups.cb
ssports.com, and leave your comments and/or suggestions as to where I should hold the bonfire.
     (Oops. I forgot. You have to join the group first. I need members, to be honest with you.Tongue out)
     But back to the purpose of this blog. At some point Ted Leonsis (the moment he actually takes over ownership of the Wizards) has to cut the dead wood out of this franchise. He can start by showing Gil the fricking door...NOW!!!Yell Don't wait on David Stern; do it as soon as you take over, Ted!!Frown
     Put your money where your mouth is.Money mouth You did it with the Capitals. Do it here with the Wizards.
     I've never felt so sickened and disgusted by an athlete as I feel right now concerning Gil Arenas. Christ, do I feel sick??Cry

Well, SOMEBODY landed on their feet

     OK, the Redskins blow. Next!!!
     Interesting to see Manny Acta got the Indians managerial gig. So for those of you in Cleveland, here's what you should expect from Manny: He's not one to blow his stack, no matter how pathetic the play in the field (and at the plate) may get. But here's one Nationals fan who hopes that Manny gets a chance to show he can manage.
     The Capitals keep winning, and the Wizards start their season tomorrow night (Tuesday). Believe me, ANYTHING that can take my mind off the Redskins is welcome news!!!Laughing
