Here’s what Homer is reading today:
- Our thoughts and prayers go out to Joe Bugel and his family after the loss of his daughter Holly, who was 35-years old.
- Chris Cooley informs ‘Skins fans that it’s okay to call Fred Smoot “Fredlacio,” Ryan Boschetti “Greasy Meatball,” and Stephon Heyer a “Wookie.” If that’s not enough to get you to click the link, then I don’t know what is.
- Here’s a blast from the past – an older, but fascinating feature story on former ‘Skins wideout Michael Westbrook.
- In a rare interview, Redskins owner Dan Snyder tells the Wall Street Journal that the only people who had a problem with the Redskins acquiring local radio station WTEM is the Washington Post. “We have a problem in this marketplace with our local newspaper,” he said. “There’s a monopoly. I have no problems saying that.”
- And finally, Corey Masisak of the Washington Times blogs an entertaining tale of running back Clinton Portis messing with his newest teammate, Jason Taylor. “Really I am just trying to figure out how to set him up and take advantage of him, so I am being friends with him now. Once we get into the season, I will stop talking to him and start bullying him around,” Portis said.
(See Corey, was that so hard? Professionals give credit when credit is due. So next time you want to write an article two weeks after you “found” the idea on this blog, feel free to let people know where the story came from. We’ll call it professional courtesy).
