Chris Cooley News

Mike Wise has a Chris Cooley column for tomorrow that contains some incredible stuff. I'm sworn to a non-blogging agreement in advance of his column, but trust me, you'll want to read this one as soon as it comes up.

In other Chris Cooley news, I was e-mailed a press release that he has re-upped his show with Elliot in the Morning on DC101. Daniel Snyder "needs to show Chris some love and sign him up as well," Elliot is quoted in the relase. "Plus, I would imagine that Snyder will be happy to have something Redskins related on a radio station that people can actually hear."

That couldn't come close to this other release I got yesterday, from the Riderwood retirement home in Silver Spring:

As Barry Bonds looks to pass Hank Aaron's home run record against the Washington Nationals, baseball fans at Riderwood (a full service retirement community in Silver Spring, Maryland), are also stepping to the plate. The Washington D.C. Capitol Region's possible link to historic baseball blast No. 756, comes as Riderwood hosts its first Wii Home Run Derby.

Based on the growing interest in Wii Sports at Riderwood, on August 9, at 2:00 p.m., in Town Center Clubhouse lounge, residents, staff, and special guests will be "swinging" in Riderwood's first Wii Home Run Derby. If you think Barry Bonds is a slugger, then you haven't seen anything.

Awesome. Julio Franco is the early frontrunner. And here's a great Chris Cooley anecdote from The Connection newspapers:

Kane Kanagawa of Great Falls remembers the time that he and his friends thought they spotted Chris Cooley at the Panera Bread near Tysons Corner.

"We did a little rock, paper, scissors to see who would go up and ask him if he was in fact Chris Cooley. I lost so I walked up to him and asked 'are you Chris Cooley?' He said yes, and I didn't know what to say so I just said 'awesome.' And then he just responded by saying 'huh-huh, awesome.' I just walked away."
And I don't know how I missed this quote from Carlos Rogers, about covering Cooley and Brandon Lloyd in their still-short-shorts:

"I don't know whether to cover them or tip them, because I don't know if they're stripping or playing football," cornerback Carlos Rogers explained. "My job is to cover them no matter what they're wearing, but if they come out with anything less than they have now, I'll be on the other side of the field."

1. Where can I get more info on entering this Wii Home Run Derby?

2. Will Ronnie Belliard be there for the ceremonial activation of the console?

Kane Kanagawa should have asked Cooley what its like to "date" Frankie Buglisi and Christy Ogilvie.

God I love this awesome time before the season starts. You know, before the bad things start happening and the Maj goes on suicide watch.

When will the Redskin stores start pairing the #47 jerseys with short shorts for the cool new Chris Cooley ensemble?
