The Associated Press is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have agreed to move to the nation’s capitol contingent upon the Redskins moving to Cleveland. The two cities will literally swap teams in what has been described by both owners as a do-over. When contacted for comment, the NFL league office noted that both teams’ records for the past ten years would be stricken from the record books as if the games were never played. Opponents will be appropriately credited with wins or losses, but the scores of the games will be blotted out.
This is one possible solution to the growing fan frustration in both DC and Cleveland, home to two of the league’s most storied franchises and most loyal fan bases. Another fix would be a headline like: ‘Owners in Two NFL Cities Shoot Themselves in the Head.’ Of course, Snyder would probably miss and hit his new head coaching candidate. Okay already, time to wake up from this dream.
Here’s the question of the hour. Has Jim Zorn simply become at peace with himself and the situation to the point he cares about the most important elements in his life more than he does his job, or has he become outright defiant? Sometimes his profile as he walks off the field suggests the latter; sometimes his expressions during his press conferences reflect the former. Regardless, he stays composed lately, no matter what.
I think I miss the ‘came slightly unglued’ guy. After all, that guy still had enough hope in his heart for salvaging the season that he was contentious. Remember the Jim Zorn that would toss his laminated play sheet to the ground during games? Where’s Mr. Fiesty gone? Gone with the wind I figure, just like all hopes of avoiding a complete Redskins’ do-over from top to bottom.
Merry Christmas everybody. I know what I want – a win Sunday.
In this post I offered a free pair of tickets to the first claimant. Someone staked a claim at 4:21am central time – WOW. A second gentlemen contacted me a short time later and would ‘love to have’ a pair of tickets. If any of you has a pair of tickets to Sunday’s game that you will not use, please email me at [email protected] so I can put you in touch with him. Congratulations to the person from Arlington who claimed them so quickly.
So, can you say ‘I hate Dallas?’ Go Skins!
