Crank That Redskins
Ok, I'm covering a lot of ground in one post here, but Blog Show co-host Mister Irrelevant has alerted me to the presence of "Crank That Redskins," a Chris Paul, burgundy-and-gold homage to Soulja Boy that has left me thoroughly convinced that Skins Win this week. Go listen to it; you'll agree. (UPDATE: There's also an Eagles version. It's....well, just go listen.)
But that also reminded me of this conversation I had with Marcus Washington yesterday. After he finished telling me all the things he'd rather watch than NFL football ("Family Guy, Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens, Still Standing"), I told him that the fans still demand some coordinated defensive between-possessions dancing.
"You've just kind of got to feel that thing out as the year goes along," he explained. "There's kind of a lot of freelancing going on right now, but nothing organized just yet. It usually takes a little time. But it'll come."
If that doesn't further convince you that Skins Win this week, I don't know what will.
But that also reminded me of how Official Nats Beat Writer Barry Svrluga went to watch some rugby with his brother two weeks ago, and how impressed he was with the pre-game routines of the All Blacks and the Samoans and the Tongans, and how Americans really don't have an equivalent, since country line dancing wouldn't be particularly intimidating. But then I had a brainstorm: Soulja Boy. It's all about the Soulja Boy. If the USA Eagles had done this before games, who knows what might have happened?
And speaking of rugby, go watch the quarterfinals this weekend on the big screen at Arlington Cinema 'N Drafthouse.
