Well - as with everything you do, well done H.
I think you and I are in the same place as lots of our brethren, wondering when this thing called redskins fandom might finally pay off again I wrote a blog during the NFL lockout questioning whether I really wanted to continue going 'all in' with this team, that it was becoming increasingly harder and less satisfying to devoting time and energy to a team in what amounts to unrequited love.
Week 8 and I'm right back where I began. I can't even muster up a homeristic blog effort myself these days. I'm sort of in emotional hibernation mode, and I may stay there awhile. I'll watch, but I'll not come out of my cave and expect to find tulips and forsythia blooming until I see some signs Spring is truly on the way. Right now, it's just a cold, constant, miserable drizzle.
Great job on the blog. We appreciate all of you stepping up to try and keep this season entertaining on a least some level. Ultimately, all Redskins fans have for consolation is each other.
Isn't that what I said?I'm confused about one thing: as long as I have been on this site, you hav ebeen screaming (or typing loudly) that we need to rebuild. Now that we are rebuilding, were you expecting something different? Less painful? I think if we can make ourselves content with small signs of improvement every week, it will make our lives a little easier, and Sundays more enjoyable. Imagine how thrilled we will be when Hank records his first 100 yard game (or Austin or Paul for that matter), or when Helu picks up multiple blitzes correctly, and has a nice rushing game. Or if we put Barnes and Thompson out there and perform reasonably well.
That's what I want to see. Just a change of mindset, that's all.
Neo, I was totally joking.Thanks Henry. Great job as always!
First, I owe you an apology for getting this up as late as I did. I could give you a couple of reasons why it was late but it still should not have happened.
Second, though I know you were joking with us (a little bit, anyway) this looks like a good place to explain how games and Blognosticators are put together. It is totally random. I put everyone's name on a piece of paper, fold them up, put them in a hat and then have a beautiful, scantily clad blonde pick them out of the hat. The first name out gets week 2, the second name out gets week 3 and so on.
I start with week 2 because the winner of last years Blognostication contest is always the week 1 Blognosticator.
