We sat in the bar after pubquiz with the Redskins game on. A whole cluster of Skins fans in jerseys and, by the looks of it, a few sheets to the wind. The score was 19-16 Vikings, and the few brave Vikings fans were getting louder and louder in their denials of the Redskins abilities. Suddenly, there’s John Hall on the field. All I can think about are the articles in the Post before the season began. Joe Gibbs was promising that he’d stand by him, despite all those missed field goals in the pre-season. Sorry Joe, but I just don’t think Hall’s got it in him to be here. If he can’t make a field goal in a Monday night game, I’m not sure he really belongs on the squad.
We left the bar before the drunken Skins fans made short work of the Vikings backers. The looks on the faces of the faithful was not at all pretty, and I figure right about now someone is scraping up a Vikes fan out of the alley behind the Courts.
Sorry guys, next week.
