A Redskins Fan’s Troubles

I was visiting in the Washington DC area when my nephew made a poignant statement. He said:

I’ve never seen the Redskins win a Super Bowl. They last won the year before I was born. I guess they’re waiting until I die.

My brother-in-law added to this, by saying:

The Redskins haven’t been good in so long, most of the younger generation doesn’t have that loyalty. I don’t know what’s going to happen, since they don’t know what it’s like to win.

Interesting. How long are the Redskins going to be able to keep selling out games with bad teams, bad players and worst of all, uninteresting teams? They are terrible offensively, with turnover machine Rex Grossman as their starter.

All I know is, Washington has to hold the line with Shanahan. The guy has to have a real chance to move them forward, or they are going to fall back into the abyss.

Meanwhile, I see a ton of locals flying “Cowboys” flags around, especially in PG County. No wonder that place is a mess. A real sense of community identity, huh? I want to say those are some of the stupidest people I’ve ever seen.

I think I just did.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
