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.

1.I'm surprised The Danny hasn't bought the rights to the Redskins songs to sell on their website.

2. 92Q here in B-More does something similar for the Ravens, but it doesn't compare in the least bit.

Verse 1

Then watch me crank that Ladell Betts
Super smart so watch our coach

When we take the field at FedEx Sunday spank Detroit all day
For you!

Offense led by Jason Campbell man he's throwing balls of flame
Later mid December we get pay back for that Giants game

Watcha gonna do? (Watcha gonna do?)
Pray! he ain't coming for you!
Nope Detroit can't win against us

Funny you should mention Rugby pre-game rituals Steinz. Last Saturday after my team's match, I suggested we "Crank 'dat Soulja Boy" as our own haka before the next match... unfortunately I was largely met with blank stares. Of the 3 or 4 guys who knew what I was talking about, one remarked: "We're playing a gay team next week, after we did it, they'd likely to it better than us."

So you're going to link to all the Chris Paul songs as they become available, right? Please? The fact that Chris Paul does these songs and I can listen to them in my car is one of my favorite things about being a Redskins fan.
