Jason Campbell Discusses Rabach's Rump

Last week's breaking "Fred Smoot is starting a blog!" news, unearthed by Blog Show producer Adam Littlefield, continued the inexorable march toward the day when every Washington D.C. professional athlete will be able to tell us, on their own time and in their own words, just how seriously they take the "one game at a time" mantra. And yet this has been an oddly barren time on these D.C. pro athlete blogs. Is the Golden Age of D.C. Pro Sports Blogs ending before Smoot can even join the party? A recap:

* Alex Ovechkin. His blog hasn't been updated for more than two months, but I guess he's been busy. Like, with his streetwear clothing launch, featuring professional models and military-style caps for $24.99. Having seen several photos, my Reliable Source co-workers get all weak-kneed, writing that Ovechkin looks "not sexy-for-a-hockey-player-hot, but male-model, smoky-stare hot." Took the words right off my fingertips.

* Gilbert Arenas. More than five weeks without a single entry, and this after writing an ominous "I'll give you all a hesitant no, this is not my last blog," in his last post. This is by far the longest dry spell in the 20-month history of Gilbert's blog.

* Ryan Zimmerman. Blog launches on May 16. He writes of naming his English bulldog "Miley" on May 27. Then, radio silence. That would make this by far the longest dry spell in the one-month history of Zim's blog. Oddly, I find it to be a more entertaining read when he doesn't post anything.

Luckily, we still haven't played the Chris Cooley card, and Cooley, clever blogger that he is, has realized that one can write a thrilling blog without necessarily revealing any embarrassing personal details about oneself. How? By instead revealing embarrassing personal details about one's teammates. Brilliant! Here's hoping Smoot takes note.

Today, we have 10 questions with Jason Campbell, and while the famously bland Campbell manages to be incredibly bland for most of those 10 questions, he accidentally lapsed into the world of the quotable on at least one occasion. Here's the Redskins franchise quarterback, discussing what it's like to put his hand in that certain place while awaiting the snap:

For everyone to know if you don't take a bath your [certain place] stinks and I think that's what Rabach does to me. Imagine sweating for 2 hours and you're Casey Rabach and you're really hairy and stinky. Rabach has even farted on my hand which is a feelin that never really wears off. I can actually feel it while we're doing this interview right now. After each practice and game the first thing I do is wash my hands of all that chaotic stuff running off his sweaty, nasty body.

That is, by a factor of 73, the best quote of Jason Campbell's football career, and for that, I say thank you to Chris Cooley. And now I'm going to wash my hands.
