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 […]

photos from the sidelines: week 4

(photo by Brian Murphy) As the first month of the season has quickly proven, wins are tough to come by in the National Football League. The Washington Redskins might have been a playoff team one season ago, but that means nothing in 2013. Through three games, the Redskins struggled in all three phases of the game and the natives were officially becoming restless. Enter the Oakland Raiders. While the silver and black happily kicked off their pre-game festivities by showing […]

photos from the sidelines: week 2

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins have not gotten off to a very enjoyable start in 2013. The offense, especially in the first half, has been missing in action. The defense, pretty much every time they take the field, has looked completely overwhelmed and under-prepared for seemingly whoever lines up against them. Oh, and the special teams has done nothing worth highlighting — unless you’re a fan of missed field goals, shanked punts, poor returns and penalties. So yeah […]

recapping 2012: 21 redskins games in 21 photos

(photos by Brian Murphy) In a matter of hours, the Washington Redskins will officially kick of the 2013 campaign when they face the Tennessee Titans in their preseason opener. Like every other ‘Skins fans out there, I too am exciting to see what this season has in store for the burgundy and gold and it’s a safe bet most of the day will be spent staring at the clock, wishing it was time for kickoff. To help pass the time, […]

photos from 2013 redskins rookie camp

(photo by Brian Murphy) One year ago, the Washington Redskins held a rookie camp that represented the debut of Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Robert Griffin III. Considering how many decades it had been since the Redskins had anything that remotely resembled a franchise quarterback on the roster, the entire D.C. metro area was eager to see RGIII don the burgundy and gold for the first time. Needless to say, things are much more subdued in 2013. With no first-round pick […]

photos from the sidelines: wild card weekend

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins have qualified for the postseason three times since I began covering the team and while each of those three seasons was different, they all unfortunately ended the same — with a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The 2005 Redskins were just happy to be there, after barely squeaking by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the opening round and the ’07 Redskins were emotionally spent after needing to play perfect football the final month […]
