Fire Zorn Site Up and Running


Watch me get from Jim Fassel to Bucknell.

As Jim Fassel's name bubbled its way to the top of the Redskins' wish list and settled in the foamy, speckled film atop the franchise's bottled-up hopes and dreams, some Internet dwellers skimmed that foam off and metaphorically spat its contents down the drain of NFL disillusionment. Or something like that.

The point is, as mentioned before, those weeks gave rise to some glory days for hastily constructed poorly designed anti-everything sites, from FireSnyderandFassel.com, which hasn't been updated since, to FireJimFassel.com, which is already out of business, to the Fire Snyder blog, which hasn't been updated in more than a month.

And in their place? Well, FireJimZorn.com, for one. From the banner:

Jim Zorn has been put in a position to fail. He will ultimately fail, so why not just fire him now, and search for his permanent replacement to lead the Redskins to a Super Bowl Championship.

Although the rest of the site is dedicated to free agent rumors, Draft Day preferences and links to the Washington Post, none of which makes a particularly persuasive case against Zorn per se. Meanwhile, over at FireVinnyCerrato.com, we learn this:

* American eeks out a close one against Holy Cross. The Jeff Jones Dream is still alive. Perhaps, one mid-major from the DC area will make the NCAA Tournament.

* Bucky took down #2-seeded Navy out of the Patriot League in 3 OT 87-86. What an incredible quarterfinal pair of matchups this conference offered up today. [I am intensely loyal to Bucknell forever due to the victory over Kansas in the '05 tourney.]

* On the Bucky win, John Griffin nailed a desperation 40-footer to seal that victory. If that's not what Bucky is all about, then I don't know what is.
* I'm pumped for the CAA Awards tomorrow. It can't just be me, can it? Any predictions on Defensive Player of the Year? Anyone?

That's right, it's the Where Sport and Thought Intersect blog, featuring "your one-stop shop for commentary focusing on the NFL, NCAA Basketball and hot-button sports issues." Why does FireVinnyCerrato.com redirect to a site about mid-major college basketball? I have no idea, but John Griffin's desperation 40-footer didn't seal that victory, it grabbed that victory out of the patriotic clutches of a valiant Navy squad and then kicked that Navy squad in the teeth while stealing an absolute gum-churning teeth-grinding lip-wrenching win. Vinny Cerrato's comments to come later.

FireSoAndSo.com was funny the first time it was done (was Ron Zook the first?)..maybe the second time...Now, it's trite. The funny part is that someone actually takes the time to maintain this site. NEWSFLASH: I can guarantee with about 99.9 % certainty that Jim Zorn will, eventually, lose his job. I don't recall the last time a head coach of an NFL team died when he was the head coach.

He may not be fired, but being 'asked to resign' and 'resigning under pressure' are about the same as being fired. Just a nicer way of telling you that you suck at your job! Add in power struggles with upper management and you see why very few head coaches anywhere leave under their own power, like Bill Cowher.

Steinz,

Yeah, that Navy defeat is so bloggable, it's almost funkdafied.

Poorly constructed?? I resemble that remark.

Of course, FireJimFassel.com is out of business. Why in the world would I keep a site open when the title no longer made any sense?

FYI, had Jim Fassel actually been hired, I would have solicited for additional bloggers to join the site.

The sarcasm on the CAA Awards ceremony would have been great.... 10 years ago. Considering there are at least a half dozen schools in MD/VA in the CAA, it actually has a lot of relevance to actual sports journalists in this area. Consider the fact of the performance of CAA teams over the last three years (NCAA, NIT, non-conference match-ups including BracketBusters, pre-season tourneys etc.)
