Last week, Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan had us on his radio show to chat about Larry Johnson, Fred Davis and the rest of the Washington Redskins. Of course, the most popular response we’ve received from those who heard the segment is, “Hey, you actually sounded like you know what you’re talking about,” which is awesome, as far as back-handed compliments go.
This week, we’re proud to announce that we’ve signed on with the newly-launched SB Nation DC as a weekly sports columnist. For those who aren’t familiar with the new site, here’s a New York Times article that gives a little background information. (And for those who aren’t familiar with “sports columnists,” it’s what Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon used to do back in the days before their ugly mugs were broadcast in high definition five days a week.)
Starting today, we’ll contribute a column to SB Nation DC every Tuesday. For our first offering, we finally admitted that after 20 years of disappointment, we’re fed up with cheering for a football team that only picks up wins during the offseason.
We’re done drinking the burgundy and gold Kool-Aid every summer and convincing ourselves that this is the year the Washington Redskins finally get their act together and return to glory. If things are going to be different this year, we needed to hear it first-hand. So we headed to Redskins Park to ask the players themselves why we should jump back on the bandwagon. What came next is amusing, to say the least.
Click here to head over to the new site and check out our first column. And seriously, thanks to everyone for the love and support over the years. Without you guys, we wouldn’t be in a position where folks like 106.7 The Fan and SB Nation DC cared enough to hear what we’ve got to say.
