    Default Twas the night before Griffmas

    OK, so I'm literally getting no work done because I'm busy surfing draft sites, dreaming of finally having a franchise QB in DC and being amazed that I actually have my first man crush. So I figured I might as well stop fighting it....

    Twas the night before Griffmas, when all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
    The jerseys were hung by the closet with care,
    In hopes that an “RG III” nameplate would soon be there.

    The Skins fans were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of deep bombs danced in their heads.
    And Mrs. 06 in her Skins shirt, and I in my cap,
    Had just settled our brains for a long night’s nap.

    When out on the gridiron there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

    The moon on the white of the new-fallen snow
    Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
    When, what to my long-suffering eyes should appear,
    But a QB running a naked bootleg, away on a tear

    With a franchise QB, so fast and free,
    I knew in a moment it must be St. RG3
    More nimble than Eagles he juked one by one,
    Then he laughed and stiff-armed a sorry Cowbum

    "Now Pierre! now, Sleepy! now, Hank and Helu!
    On, Royster! On, Morgan! And yes, Santana too!
    To the endzone! to the top of the NFC-E!
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away baby!"

    Being the chumps they are, they started to cry,
    All Cowbums, Giants and Eagles fans, said bye
    To future Super Bowl hopes and conference wins too
    All crushed under Griff’s mighty arm and swift shoe.

    He sprang to the film room, for the Shannys to mold,
    Then away he flew in weird socks, one burgundy, one gold.
    But I heard him exclaim, as he passed a ball out of sight,
    "Hail to the Redskins, for old DC I’ll fight!"

    It's almost time to par-tay!!

    Nicely done, my brother. Nicely done.

    Oh, and you aren't the only one getting very little done at work either. My whole week has been a hard grind just waiting for Thursday night.

    It really does kind feel like that, doesn't it?

    I mean, we all KNOW who we're gonna take and I still can't wait until tomorrow.

    It cost a lot but the Redskins are finally in position to fill their most pressing need since Brad Johnson left in 2001.

    For all the glitz Cerrato and Snyder wanted to make year after year the one thing they never did was sign or trade for a major qb.

    It's like being a kid at Christmas and already knowing what you're getting....but you can't wait for it to officially be placed under the tree so you can take it out and play with it.

    We have a lot of talented people around here. Riggins44 did a shorter version in another thread - all of these are well done, including this one. Glad to see that it was blogged.

    Really glad that he is excited too. This is the happiest I've been as a Redskins fan since the Super Bowl wins. He will be the best QB we've had since Sammy. No disrespect for Sonny, Joe, Doug, and Mark, but Mr. Griffin will have the biggest effect on the culture change for the Redskins in many years.

    RIP to the Vinny era --- 1998 - 2010 and the lasting effects to the present. But it ends tomorrow night. And good riddance.

    I liked Goal's title a lot better so I edited it. Thanks for all your kind comments. Here's to the beginning of a new era!

    With all the high expectations that so many have put on this kid, he doesn't have anywhere to go, but down.

    I am as hopeful as any man alive that Robert can help bring some new Lombardi's to my beloved Redskins.

    But as for right now, he's an unproven rookie who has yet to pass Jamarcus Russell's NFL stats.

    Moderation people.

    BTW, the poem is stellar.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.
