The Body Bag Game part II: The Vickening

By Jason Woodmansee

Thanks to the miracle of Twitter, I have a written record of the trava-shamockery that was Monday. Follow along as I slip into a spiral of despair and mockery...

1:44 PM: “One things is for sure - McNabb no longer has any leeway from Redskins fans. No more ugly wins - they should be works of art. And frequent.” I mean, I didn’t want the Redskins to waste two picks for just one year of McNabb, but if he’s making Tom Brady money, the wins should be pretty like Tom Brady. There will be wins, right?

4:29 PM: “Yee-ha! RT @RedskinsDotCom: Uniform update: it's officially burgundy jersey and gold pants for tonight's Redskins-Eagles game at FedExField.” Ok, so maybe I’ll shut up about the gold pants.

5:46 PM: “So I heard the kickoff in the car & by the time I got into the house from the garage, I missed the TD. Yikes.” So, because the Monday Night games no longer start at 9 p.m. EST, out here on the West coast I have to rush home to watch the games. I probably should have saved the effort.

6:08 PM: “Wow, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast.” With the Eagles up 28-0, quoting “Anchorman” got my best response of the night. Most people went with something along the lines of “Mike Vick killed a guy with a trident.” I corrected it to “Mike Vick killed a dog with a Trident.” That felt better.

7:12 PM: “Just think - last week I was appalled at the idea that the Redskins would let McNabb go and sign Vick.” This was also the point of the game that I got a text that said “Do you think they’ll change into their white pants at halftime? Couldn’t hurt.” I responded with “SHUT UP.”

7:31 PM: “It could be worse - I could actually be at the Redskins game, getting rained on & listening to Billy Ray Cyrus.” I can’t believe that someone thought that Billy Ray Cyrus was a good idea - he hasn’t been relevant since the early 90’s. Oh, now I get it - just like the Redskins.

7:42 PM: “45-21! Don't call it a comeback! No, seriously, don't.”

8:19 PM: “This is usually the time that I would mention that Mike Vick killed dogs or that the Eagles have never won a Super Bowl. Any requests?” Best response was from @BoycottSnyder - “Go for McNabb throwing up during the Super Bowl.. oh, never mind.”

8:38 PM: “Well, it looks like Andy Reid was totally wrong about Kevin Kolb being the future of the franchise. HA!”

So where do we go from here? Last week I wrote that the Redskins were doomed. After this debacle, I think that doomed would be an improvement. Almost 20 years to the day from the Body Bag Game, I can’t figure out which one was worse.

This game was worse by far. At least Brian Mitchell made the body bag game interesting to watch. There was nothing fun about last night's game.
