Monday Night Football Final Thoughts
See, I promised my boss this wouldn't be all Redskins, but I have to finish up some stuff.
1) The Redskins serve cheese to media members. And lots of it. A writer reports:
Literally the biggest cheese selection in the world. Honestly, I would really guess that they have 25 different kinds of cheese. Twenty-five! And they're not like cubed cheses; they're all like nice, wedged cheeses. They probably also have 15 different kinds of crackers, including these almost-bagel chips that are like bread. Somehow they turn bread into that same bagel chip consistency, and it's raisin bread! Oh man, it's unbelievable. Amazing cheese.
2) I neglected to update the result of the Vikings-Jersey-Wearing Final-Score-Pick'em Contest. Two people were allowed to enter despite not having Vikings jerseys; they were dubbed Gray Sweatshirt and Young Boy, based on their clothing choice (the former) and demographic group (the latter). Gray Sweatshirt won, with a prediction of 20-17 Vikings and a last-second Ryan Longwell field goal. Not bad. Gray Sweatshirt also e-mailed to complain that he has not yet been recognized as the champion he is. Anyhow, his actual name is Dean Olson, and his prize is having his name mentioned in a semi-anonymous sports blog. Runner-up awards to Brad Johnson (21-17 Vikings) and Alan Page No. 2 (17-14 Vikings). Th female Robert Smith wins no awards for her 42-14 prediction.
3) More Kornheiser reviews. T.J. Simers says he was "subdued" and "obvious." King Kaufman says the crew sounded like "a bunch of chattering chipmunks" and blasts TK's undefeated fantasy football team. Blog commenters also hammer away. (Sample: "Kornheiser is a complete jerk who is loud and obnoxious."). And Bill Goodykoontz (really) says "let Tony be Tony." Which might not be the best idea. (See blog commenters, above.)
