Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys - Thoughts

Okay, now that I’ve had slumber to rest on this loss to the Cowboys, it’s time I give my thoughts on the game. Nobody was expecting 16-0. Truth be told, I think it’s a blessing that our defense is playing as well as it has been so far, and offensively, I think we needed a reality check at some point. I hate that it came against a division rival, the Dallas Cowboys at that, but for the long haul, this is a team that believes it can correct their mistakes and rebound. The coming weeks will be what defines this Redskins team. The running backs in the first half were slipping left and right. I didn’t see much of that happening to defenders or even to receivers making cuts on their routes, so I don’t know what was up with Tim Hightower and Roy Helu. Receivers weren’t getting open. Looking back at Dallas’ first two games, a lot of the success in the passing game for those teams came on the receivers’ ability to beat the corners physically at the line of scrimmage. Th

Sean Remembers 9/11

September 11, 2001 – a day that will live in infamy. Everyone, including myself, remembers 9/11 as being a beautiful day. The only reason we remember this fact is the aftermath of the events that unfolded. Even the clear blue skies and perfect temperatures the rest of that day were darkened and disturbed by the horrible realization of what happened. What happened? Freedom was attacked, and in many cases taken. I, like everyone, remember the events of that day vividly. I was a freshman in high school, and we were in 2 nd period (gym class for me) outside walking around the track. I was walking with a friend, Mike Randall, when we were told the towers were both hit. Like everyone when they heard of the second tower being hit, the immediate realization was that we were under attack. We were pulled back into the school and brought into the locker room. I remember seeing Football Coach Perry watching the news on his television for my first view of the events. I rem

Remembering 9/11 - 10 Years On.

I couldn’t possibly post my NFL picks today without saying something about this day. 9/11. For most Americans it’ll be something you remember vividly, especially for any of you New Yorkers. But from across the pond, it’s something we all remember too. Looking back at the footage of that day, I still can’t believe it.   It’s like a horror movie, but unfortunately it actually happened in most of our lifetimes. Those too young to remember, or those who were not even born yet, it’s something that will be taught and relived by them and the people around them because it’s something no one should forget. In the past week, as the 10 year anniversary approached, politicians have been voicing their opinions on whether the way we reacted towards the attacks created more extremists. This is something that disgusts me. In everyday life, if someone was to break into your house, surely you’d get a new lock or even add extra security. I realise this is on a much, much smaller scale and couldn’t po

Buddy Guy & B.B. King (Constitution Hall)

Last Tuesday (the 30th of August), I went to see Buddy Guy & B.B. King in concert at Constitution Hall down in Washington, D.C. Before I get into any specifics about the show, I’m going to just run down the journey. Traffic was a bitch, with everyone (no cars ahead of them, just being douches) driving 30 in a 40… as I made my way to meet my mom at her work in Rockville. Turning out of the parking lot from her work when I picked her up, a SUV jumped over from the left lane and cut off a truck which was flying… somehow the guy driving the truck had pretty fucking awesome brakes, and the sack of shit driving the SUV drove by with a smile on his face, laughing. I don’t know about the rest of you, but if I’m in a near-accident… especially one where a truck was speeding like in this instance, my last reaction is to grin and laugh… I’d be as transparent as a ghost, hyperventilating, and soiling myself. Then I make my way to Rockville Metro Station, and I’ve got a left turn at th
