Wrinkle Neck Mules

My good buddies from Big O and Dukes might not be in a band, but that doesn’t mean they don’t know good music. Every once in a while, Big O and Dukes decides to use their powers of persuasion for good and convince a musical act to come to town and play a show for the horde. That’s exactly what happened on this night, when the Wrinkle Neck Mules, along with If Birds Could Fly, played in front of a sellout crowd […]

Dolphins deliver season-opener setback

The Washington Redskins stumbled out of the gates — losing their 2015 season opener 17-10 to the Miami Dolphins at FedEx Field, Sept. 13. Here is a selection of my favorite images I was able to capture from the sidelines. The full gallery of my Week 1 photos can be found here.

The Pietasters

The Pietasters have played with everyone from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones to the legendary James Brown, and if that doesn’t tell you all you need to know about this D.C. institution, I don’t know what to tell you. On this day, The Pietasters, along with Black Masala and Askultura, kicked off the new year in style with their annual show at the historic 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., Jan. 10. While I had been fortunate enough to attend a Pietasters […]

photos from the sidelines: week 9

(photo by Brian Murphy) I have no idea whether or not the Washington Redskins are the only professional football franchise who celebrates a homecoming game each year. But I can tell you this — I fully understand why being named Washington’s homecoming opponent could be perceived as a slight by the team on the other side of the field. “I look on there and it says ‘homecoming.’ And I’m thinking to myself: This is the National Football League. Are you […]

redskins-chargers playlist

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold It wouldn’t have surprised me if fans of the Washington Redskins were less than enthusiastic about the team’s decision to hold their annual alumni homecoming game Week 9. After all, the Redskins came into the game against the San Diego Chargers winless in these nostalgic affairs — having lost 21-13 to Carolina last season and 19-11 to San Francisco back in ’11. And yet, I can’t help but […]

mike shanahan opens up, destroys albert haynesworth

(courtesy photo) Without a doubt, the darkest period during my eight seasons covering the Washington Redskins was the Albert Haynesworth era. Whether he was face down on the field after giving up on a play or failing a routine conditioning test, Haynesworth was undoubtedly the biggest embarrassment this franchise has had to deal with during my time on the sidelines. The Redskins gave the defensive lineman a $100-million contract, and in return, they got a surly malcontent who made little […]

redskins made a mistake by not trading away kirk cousins

(photo by Brian Murphy) I can’t help but think that the Washington Redskins missed a chance to improve their football team this week, when they failed to pull the trigger on a trade before the deadline. No, I’m not talking about tight end Fred Davis, who – for reasons that remain unclear – has become a complete afterthought this season. I’m talking about backup quarterback Kirk Cousins. Sure, he’s a stand-up guy and a football franchise can never have enough […]
