What goes around comes around. Don’t burn bridges. You never know what tomorrow may bring. Tomorrow’s another day. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
I don’t know which of the worn-out cliches above best applies to the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, but the Giants’ players will surely come up with a few axioms of their own. After all, they pretty much wiped the uninspired Redskins off the face of the earth at FedEx Field last week. This week, they laid a Giant egg at home against the banged-up Carolina Panthers. It was downright ugly at FedEx last week, and it was downright ugly today at Giant Stadium. What a way to close out a historic sports venue.
So now the Giants need help, and they need it from the Redskins. They need the Skins to beat the Cowboys. I’m almost tempted to root for a tie tonight. Almost. It’s too bad I hate the Cowboys more than any other team. I could care less about the Giants’ playoff hopes.
It’s too bad my boss is a Giants’ fan. I’d dump all over the Giants. I’m not afraid to do so. He just does such a better job than me. He yells at his TV. I’ve been to his home – he has plenty of room for pacing back and forth. Good thing. Seriously, there’s nothing more fun than a disgusted Giants’ fan. It beats listening to the incessant whining and outright denial spewed by Cowboys’ fans. I can’t say much about Eagles’ fans – they’re on top of the world going into the playoffs.
New York started the season 5 – 0. How on earth could they lose 41 – 9 at home to the Panthers? I just hope Tom Coughlin doesn’t have a heart attack yelling at his players. He’s old school – I kind of like him. Anyhoo, now the Redskins have a much larger set of fans rooting for them tonight. They’re the same people who laughed derisively at our Skins last week. I need to check and see if there’s a full moon out tonight. How odd.
All together now – Go Skins!
