Hail Game Day!

The date was January 1st, 2011 and the place was the Linc. The last time our Washington Redskins strapped it up for real. That was then and this is now.

While the off season has been in turns terrifying, boring and stunningly exciting, it is once again that time.

Game Day.

A scared occurrence, happening no more than a maximum of 25 times a year, assuming your team plays the HoF game to start the preseason and then closes out their season in the Super Bowl (having gotten there by way of a Wild Card game). Most fans will have to live with just 20 such high holidays a year.

Revel in today for the days like it are few, my friends, and they are dear.

We at BGO would like to take a moment and mention options for sharing that revelry with your obsessed brethren of the B&G right here at our humble home.

  • An official Game Day thread will be started by a BGO Staff Member in the Sons of Washington forum prior to kickoff.
  • The all new BGO Chat is up and running if you prefer something more real time. Please feel free to use it early and often. Links to that can be found in navigation bar at the bottom of all BGO pages.
  • The BGO Sportsradio BOT is available on the main portal page for those geographically challenged souls who wish to find and listen to the game on an internet radio station.


Please remember What We're About here at BGO, regardless of which of these options you choose to avail yourselves of, and please temper all responses accordingly.

So where ever you are, sit back, crack a cold one (I will be enjoying brew of my making, thank you) and enjoy the first of the few holy gridiron days of this season. We certainly will be.

Hail!
