So with this news, I am such a happy camper. The toilet seat is slowly disappearing and teams are realizing that it’s just ugly. Glad the Redskins are getting rid of it. It looked just so out of place.
It’s also another example of how many classic uniform designs have been compromised due to Nike’s “innovative” designs.
What the new jersey will look like.
They’ve made a movie about the Redtails.
Coming out of Washington, it looks like the Redskins could get a name change to the Redtails.
What’s a Redtail? I didn’t even know myself, so this was the explanation in the article.
In his resolution, Grosso urges the team to change its name to the Washington Redtails, noting that that was the nickname used by the Tuskegee Airmen, the pioneering aviation unit that broke the color barrier for U.S. military pilots in World War II. A plane used by the airmen recently was put in a place of honor in the Smithsonian.
This would be a complete 180-degree turn from their current name. One that isn’t racist, but is about equality. I wouldn’t mind it either way really. The Redskins name has been around so long that I probably have gotten used to it, so the name change issue isn’t big to me. But if it’s that important, a change sounds good and i can dig this.
To me, a die-hard fan is a fan that follow the team, knows almost everything about the coaches and roster and has to have at least followed the team for maybe five years or so.
But apparently this guy is not a die-hard. Because if he was, then he’d recognize the team’s backup quarterback that came into the game during the playoffs for them. A die-hard should know what the backup quarterback looks like.
Kirk Cousins of course was probably surprised at this. But then again, football players wear helmets so you don’t see their famous that often. But hey, I guess this guy needs to re-evaluate his stance as a die-hard fan.
It’s time for the playoffs! With that said, here are my quick predictions on today’s games.
Is this Ray Lewis’ last game?
INDIANAPOLIS (5) VS BALTIMORE (4)
The storylines are limitless here. Is this Ray Lewis’ final game in the NFL? What about the great comeback by Chuck Pagano as he returns to Baltimore? Is Joe Flacco elite? Is Andrew Luck the real deal?
I would like to think that the Lewis storyline would inspire the Ravens. After all, their emotional leader is back and that might be a huge difference. But I am not sure how effective he would be. The bigger concern for me is the offensive side of the ball.
Can Flacco lead this team to the Super Bowl? He was close last year and this year’s squad has shown signs of being good enough to make it happen again. But I am not sure if the offense can out-duel Luck’s run of success. What the Colts offense has done this year has provided a solid balance of timely running and passing plays. This team is playing at a level that I think can turn some heads in the playoffs.
Before I give you my thoughts, watch the above video. Then for the entire transcript, click this link.
Rob Parker decided to dig deep into his mind and wonder why Robert Griffin III isn’t black enough in his eyes. To him, a black person must love Barack Obama, have an all black family and maybe should listen to gangsta rap and so forth. For him they have to be “hood” and need to have “swag” probably too.
Calling him a cornball essentially calls RGIII as a fraud, saying that he puts up a front to cover up something. And that something is that Griffin isn’t black.
Kim and RGIII?
Label this under the “I’m not surprised” category. In fact, I am surprised that I am writing about this. But I find myself chuckling.
Apparently, Kim Kardashian had a moment of interest in Robert Griffin III. Jack Burditt explains what happened when Kardashian saw Griffin a few hours after the draft.
“She sat next to me while we were watching the show on the monitor and RG3 is a few seats down, and during the commercial break she starts asking me questions about him,” Burditt told Eisen. “Like, ‘Now he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, yeah, yeah, yeah. And [Kardashian asks] ‘And he just…something big happened, right?’ And I’m like, well yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight. [Kardashian asks] ‘And what team?’ Washington. [Kardashian asks] ‘What’s Washington?’ Redskins. She goes, ‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, you stay away from him. This is a nice young man.”
