Like Thanos, Defenders annihilate Guardians

Because everything went about as well as possible for the D.C. Defenders in their season opening victory over the Seattle Dragons, it would be reasonable to expect a bit of a letdown in their follow-up act. It’s safe to say that didn’t happen. If the Defenders were good in their first game of the season, they were great in their second act — systematically destroying the New York Guardians, 27-0, to record their first shutout in XFL history. New York […]

Defenders leave Jim Zorn seeing maroon and black once again

No one really knows what to expect now that the XFL has returned after a 19-year hiatus. Is it doomed to fail from the gimmicks and poor quality of play that plagued the initial incarnation nearly two decades ago? Or has Vince McMahon learned from his previous mistakes and put together a sustainable football league that is capable of sticking around? While it would be foolish to rush to any snap judgments after one weekend of play, it’s safe to […]

Any Given Sin

Any Given Sin closed out the decade on a serious high note. The band’s first single, “Dynamite,” took the hard rock world by storm and became one of the most played tracks of 2019. Eager to prove their success wasn’t a fluke, they released a follow-up single, “Another Life,” which was another smash hit that showed this Southern Maryland band is here to stay. Before taking the stage at Fish Head Cantina for their first performance of the new year, […]

Cowboys win, but lose. Redskins lose, but win.

Regardless of what the NFL schedule said, the 2019 season ended long ago for the Washington Redskins. Sure, the Redskins technically had one final game left to play out, but all eyes in our nation’s capital were already looking past a Week 17 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Is this the year Redskins owner Daniel Snyder finally listens to the disgruntled fanbase and fires Bruce Allen? Who will the franchise hire as the next head coach? Which of the players […]

Giants victory gives Redskins fans plenty of cause for celebration

The Washington Redskins and New York Giants came into their Week 16 game with a combined six wins and 22 losses, so it’s safe to say both franchises are simply playing out the schedule and hoping to move on from a disappointing 2019 as quickly as possible. While neither team was in any danger of qualifying for the postseason, there were huge ramifications attached to this contest — with the loser placing themselves in chief position to secure the second […]

Packers represent everything the Redskins aspire to be

The Washington Redskins, in many ways, are the polar opposite of the Green Bay Packers. While the Packers are one of the most consistent and stable franchises in football, the Redskins — to put it kindly — are not. The Packers have made the playoffs 13 times since 2000. The Redskins advanced to the postseason just four times during the same span. Since 1992, Packers fans have enjoyed Hall of Fame quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. In the last […]

Derrius Guice destroys Shaq Thompson. Redskins win.

The Washington Redskins, who seemingly went months without scoring an offensive touchdown earlier this season, scored 29 straight points en route to an impressive victory over the Carolina Panthers. And yet, all anyone wants to talk about is the fact that Redskins running back Derrius Guice killed a man, just to watch him bleed. Metaphorically, of course. The LSU standout only carried the ball 10 times on Sunday, but he absolutely made the most of them — rushing for 129 […]
