Sports Fix: Hail to the Victors!

Crazed Fan by Leediehr

26-24. Sorry, Cowboys, no 4 & 0 for you. The Redskins looked quite good in Dallas today, with Jason Campbell starting to look like the Quarterback that the Redskins had hoped he’d become. Two TDs and 230 yards, all without a single pick. Clinton Portis came up big with 121 yards over 21 carries. It was the kind of victory that kept the TV on and the fans cheering right down to the last play. Fortunately, Shaun Suisham’s leg was up to the task, with four Field Goals and a pair of extra points.

Great day for Jim Zorn, and for the Skins as a whole, with the last Redskins Regular Season Game in Texas Stadium coming up a big victory for us. But that’s not all the sporting news…

Nationals Park - Magic of Summer - 9-20-08

The Nationals

The Nats’ season is done. Thank God. At least now it can’t get any worse. The Nats sent every coach except Randy St. Claire & Manny Acta packing. What a season. Final record was 59-102. The worst record in baseball. Even the hapless Mariners eked out two more wins. There isn’t much in the way of good news for the Nats fans. Ownership’s still not paying up for rent on the Stadium. They’re still employing Jim Bowden, who appears to be an utter moron.

Six months til they come on back to Nationals Park. Here’s hoping there’s better luck next year. And maybe a couple fewer losses, guys? Couple fewer injuries, eh Ryan Zimmerman and Nick Johnson?

DC United

Columbus clinched their playoff berth this week. Just seven slots remain for the MLS playoffs, and we’re #5 in the Eastern Division. The playoff picture is pretty bleak. Chances are we won’t be masters of our own fate, and still need to win three of their final four MLS games. Given the opponents (#1E Columbus, #2E New England, #2W Chivas USA and #1W Houston), it’d be something of a miracle.

United plays Wednesday in the CONCACAF Champions League at RFK against Cruz Azul from Mexico, then Saturday against Chivas.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
