It’s hard to enjoy this…

Since I’ve linked this blog (as well as my Nats blog on Blogger) to a new site where it should have more people reading…this particular entry is a test of sorts.
So, might as well get some use out of this…lol

image

Well, that ought to get people to notice. Just shows how much we Skins fans flat-out despise those shitholes from Dallas…LMAO

image

God, I love these pictures. And to think they signed Tony Romo to a contract extension…for what? Fricking choke artist, is what he is.

image

As opposed to our new savior in burgundy & gold…one Robert Griffin III. (Okay, I know you all want to point out the Seattle game in the playoffs. Fine. I don’t care.)
Anyway, I for one would rather that RGIII wait until maybe Week 3 before stepping onto the field to start his season. But, who knows?
Just so we can see a 2013 version of this:

image

So much fun to stick the shiv in deeper to those Cowturd/Iggles “fans”…lol
Now to just get the Wizards fixed up right…

image

But, that’s for another day.

Hell of a (sports) year in D.C., ain’t it been?

leave a comment »


As I write this, we’re about an hour away from the Sunday night game involving the Redskins and the fucking Cowturds…for the winner, the NFC East title; the loser goes home. Period.
(So you’ll allow me to state the obvious here…HTTR!!)

image

And also, the reason the Skins are even in this in the first place…

image

When I said back in April that Robert Griffin III was the savior of this Redskins franchise, some people laughed at my ass. Who’s laughing now, clowns?
But this is just how the sports year has been in the D.C. area in 2012. The other big story…well, let this next picture give you a hint:

image

Yeah, I know. It’s overkill for some of you, seeing Bryce Harper like this. But, he’s just part of the story that is the 2012 Nationals.

image

So is Michael Morse. So is Jayson Werth. So’s Adam LaRoche.

image

But, what everyone chose to obsess on the entire season…was the whole Stephen Strasburg “shutdown” non-story. I won’t bore you all with this bullshit again, so let me move on…
I predicted before the season the Nats would go 85-77 (and finish 3rd in the NL East). Boy, was I surprised!!

image

Winning the division was a surprise, really. Watching Drew Storen have a meltdown in Game 5 of the NLDS was a nightmare for Nats fans.
(Then again, Teddy finally winning a President’s Race was a shock, too…lol)

image

At any rate, we’ve shut everybody up as to the real power in the NL East now. Next year, a World Series in D.C.—just like I said 5 yrs ago, when I began my Nats blog (first for MLBlogs, and now for Blogger).
Now, the bad part(s)…
The Wizards I won’t go into, and until the fucking NHL lockout is settled the Caps can wait.

image

But all in all, it was fun to enjoy baseball and football in the DMV this year…and as I said at the start of this entry, we ain’t done with the Skins YET!!

image

So with that, Happy New Year people!!

   Tim Tebow, a player on the Denver Broncos Amer...

Just when we were all settled down from the Peyton Manning press conference yesterday in Denver, it appears Pat Bowlen and John Elway made good on their guarantee to ship Tim Tebow‘s ass out of the Mile-High City.
To, the…J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS?? Who saw this one coming? If I’m Mark Sanchez, here’s what should be the first words out of his mouth:
“I’m not playing second fiddle to this fucking garbonze!!”*
(*old M*A*S*H reference. Google it…lol)
Anyway, here’s what I wanted to say. The betting pool is on as to who gets the opportunity to take Tebow’s ass out. (MY money’s on Mario Williams, now that he’s in Buffalo.)
My new hashtag on Twitter will say it all: #SnapTebowsLegsLikeAWishbone

image

Because, let’s face it. The offense this fucking skivosa runs is better suited to arena football than to the NFL. So I say let’s hurry up the process…lol
(And yes, the sickening image of Joe Theismann writhing on the ground @RFK after Lawrence Taylor snapped his leg is still fresh in my mind over 1/4 century later. Just so you know.)
Note, BTW, I said “betting pool” and not “bounty”. Keep that in mind, folks.

image

This’ll be so much fun for all of you to read on Twitter…LMAO

English: Drew Brees warming up in Wembley Stad...

Steve Czaban, who used to work at ESPN 980 in D.C. (before Dan Snyder fired him), is tweeting this:
“RT @czabe I’m 50x more pissed off the Saints are penny pinching Brees than I am about Pay4Slay. 10 teams ready to give Brees 20m per. Let us at him!”
You’re serious about this, Czabe? You want Drew Brees here:

image

Should I assume this would be if Peyton Manning does not wish to wear Burgundy and Gold?

image

I mean I have respect for you and all, Czabe, but…just what the hell are you smoking? There’s a reason that seal is laughing, you know.
You yourself have pointed out over the years how the “Prima Danna” has turned this once proud franchise into an obscenity. And you seriously believe the Redskins should take a stab at Drew Brees?
Yeah, rightimage

I’ll make this short…

Before Redskins fans go all gaga on trying to bring Peyton Manning here to D.C., let me make the attempt to talk sense to you.
As much as the idea would appeal to me, it’s just NOT feasible. For starters, he’s coming off neck surgery.
One wrong move as he’s being sacked, and it’s bye-bye career. Is this what you want?
Second, he’s never run a West Coast offense. That alone is grounds not to do this.
But this IS Dan Snyder we’re talking about, right? Anything to continue running this once-proud franchise into the ground, no matter what the cost.
For God’s sake, DON’T DO THIS!!!

Football’s back? Oh, shit.

The Washington Redskins and New York Giants fa...

Image via Wikipedia

     And here I thought we were going to have NO pro football this year. Lousy bastards…LMMFAO

     But lo and behold, the NFL owners and players decided to fuck with my mind and settle everything. Wonderful. Anything to detract from Dan Snyder‘s (ongoing) snit fit with the Washington City Paper over a article painting the “Prima Danna” in an unflattering light…lol

     Like any of you give a shit.

     Anyway, back to football…namely, just what the fuck the Redskins will do as concerns a multitude of issues. Like, for one, at what point Donovan McNabb gets shown the door (to make way for…John Beck?? What bulshit is this?).

     For another, when will the fat turd Albert Haynesworth save us Skins fans the humiliation and leave?

     But more importantly, will we Skins fans actually see a REAL product on the field this year? Or do we suffer yet another from “Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dumbass” (aka Mike and Kyle Shanahan; take your pick who’s who)?

     Speaking of dumbass moves…take a look at this picture.

     The seating in the upper deck in this pic…is no more. That’s right, Dan Snyder decided to take out the seating in the upper deck(s) at both ends of FedEx Field–and replace them with “patio”-type seating. THIS is “fan-friendly”, you fucking shitbrain?

     How about putting a fucking product on the field, Danny?? Any of this sinking in?? Any of it??

     Shit, I don’t know if anyone actually reads this blog, to be honest. But it gives me a place to vent. After all, the title says “Musings…”, and that’s what I’m doing here.

————————————————————————————————-

     A short note:

     Even though I have a baseball-oriented blog through WordPress (you can find it here), I’ll be discontinuing it once the season ends. So many other MLBloggers have already done so (or will soon), ever since the transition from Movable Type to WP.

     I found out today yet one more is giving up the ghost and moving it to Blogspot. What happened in my case, is that when MLB.com decided to make this move they locked in the name of my blog in the process (meaning, the username became “mlblogsgonastynats”).

     Never mind I already had WP blogs to start with (transitioning from Windows Live Space). Motherfuckers fucked me up bad…ARRRRRGH!!

     Bottom line is, this blog and another of mine stay put. The MLBlogs entry goes away in a few months. I may just move the gig to Blogger (where I already have a Caps-oriented blog); I’m not sure yet. But I’ll let people know…soon.
