    Hi Boone,

    Thanks for the warm welcome

    Posted up a lengthy 'get to know me post' in the Norm! thread. Thanks for pointing me at that.
    I added to the location map yesterday and noticed that there were a couple of other members from the UK.

    I'd been looking for somewhere friendly and respectful to hang out and talk Redskins and this seems like an awesome place to do it. Kudos to you on the forum.

    Can anyone start a blog on here? I'm interested in having a go.

    Hi, Boone,

    Noted your message back in 2010 and that you were a Marine and in Oki. My wife and I returned to Okinawa last November. I studied Japanese for a year at the Army Language School (now DLI) in 1962-3 and was lucky enough to get orders to Japan. Five years in Wilmington, NC until return here last year. Was great either going to the games or seeing them on TV. Back to hit and miss. Wishing you well. Cheers, Chuck Church

    Hey Boone, since I don't have access to the Videos I didn't know of you had this one included but I just saw it for the first time today. Don't know how I missed it but it's pretty amazing. It's about Sonny & Sam, called "Brothers of the Legacy". Perhaps I'm the only one who HASN'T seen it but I did a search and didn't see it listed in any of the forums. Here's the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqjTt...re=context-gfa

    Hey Boone got a question for ya...

    "Beyond issuing you guys a warm , wanted to let you know that we've already got a couple of special Baylor-themed avatars available, and are open to creating more (or adopting your own if there's something you like)."

    Does this mean we can use our own avatars now? I've had one uploaded to my gallery for a while now I'd love to use if that's the case.

    Thanks and keep up the good work, this place kicks ass.

The Quan

I know, I know. Life’s not fair. You never promised me a rose garden. Suck it up buttercup.

If anyone gets it, it’s the son of the Great Santini. Raised by a 6’4” Marine Colonel, ‘I want…’ was a phrase I quickly learned to deftly avoid.

But ‘want’ I do.

And when it comes to my beloved Burgundy and Gold, the wish list is long and enduring.

I want Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. Pay the man.
I want Jay Gruden to become a

The Redskins are winning.

How? No one really knows. The offense scores in bunches. The offense implodes in the red zone. The defense is a sieve. The defense is opportunistic. The play calling is daring. The play calling is predictable. Special teams is infallible. Special teams nearly costs us a win.

Rooting for this team is like calling an escort service in Bangkok – squinting your

Trump Cards

I think we can all agree on one thing in this incredibly divisive Presidential election cycle.

It’s time to make the Redskins great again!

And it’s going to happen…believe me. It’s going to be huuuuge. We’re going to win so much, you’ll get sick of winning.

I know many Redskins fans bemoaned the fact that we didn’t build a wall in this year’s NFL draft. The center of our dreams was tantalizingly within reach. Many of us wanted the B&G to take big ugly

Yes. I liked that.

The 2015 Redskins season was a gift from the Gods. In 2012, Redskins fans dreamt they’d finally hit pay dirt and found a franchise QB after decades of hapless floundering under center. If that weren’t enough to bring joy to the miserable masses, the Skins had lucked into a 6th round RB gem in Alfred Morris.

If you’d tried to tell any of us what would transpire after that magical 2012 season, we literally would’ve thought you were crazy, hopped up

Whistling Past the Graveyard

by Boone on 12-27-15 at 12:16 PM
I’ve noted a strange adaptive strategy employed by war-torn and battle-scarred Redskins fans for most of the past 20 years. ‘Whistling Past the Graveyard’. Belief is a risky proposition for NFL fans, particularly fans of one of the most volatile, topsy-turvy franchises ever, one that’s had a parade of head coaches, coordinators, front office staff, and supposed saviors that rivals Kevin Bacon connections.

With belief comes possibility. Occasionally, fans who’ve closed their eyes,
