    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.
  2. Thanks for the welcome! Looking forward to joining the conversation!

    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.

Again

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 11:16 AM
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,

Burgundy and Gold Dawn

The Colonel: ’All that hate’s gonna burn you up kid.’
Robert: ‘Keeps me warm.’



I’m not Russian.

I don’t speak Russian.

I don’t know any Russians. Hell – I don’t even particularly care for vodka.

World War 3 is not here, but you wouldn’t know it talking to Washington Redskins fans, locked in mortal combat, even on the heels of an improbable ‘greatest comeback in franchise history’ win.

You all know what

Oral Arguments

by Boone on 09-03-15 at 09:39 AM
Last night, as the latest Redskins-related organizational firestorm raged on the Twittersphere, some stark contrasts between the modern media world, and the calmer, more dignified world of my youth were on my mind.

Don’t get me wrong. Upon hearing the latest on the burgeoning scandal quickly christened ‘BJgate’, I made my share of snarky, inappropriate comments. I am an American male after all. If you lob me a pitch, I’m going to swing. So yeah, the current Redskins embarrassment

Living in Missouri

by Boone on 06-11-15 at 02:45 PM
Show me.

Historians attribute Missouri’s ‘Show Me’ moniker to U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903. While a member of the U.S. House Committee on Naval Affairs, Vandiver attended an 1899 naval banquet in Philadelphia. In a speech there, he declared, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri.
