Morning Look: Cooley, Junior and Czarniak
The Redskins are fast becoming a Dale Earnhardt Jr. Appreciation Society. First Kedric Golston outs himself as a major Junior fan--despite that fact that Junior is not, technically, a Gibbs driver--and then longtime Earnhardt fan Chris Cooley does an extended TNT sit-down with Lindsay Czarniak and everyone's favorite soda-pusher, the only Junior more famous than John Feinstein. This Junior returns the favor by closing the interview with this: "I'd give up everything I've got to be Chris Cooley for a season, hell yes."
Wow. Whether 'tis a smart move to take a massive paycut in order to be physically battered by larger men while joining
a likely sub-.500 team a likely Super Bowl-winning team based among Loudoun County strip malls and P.G. County takeout joints is perhaps a fair question for Junior, but the Redskins might as well give him a tryout. They seem to be a bit short on receiving options, and Mark Brunell is no longer hogging the number 8.
Also, with Chris Cooley and Caron Butler both having declared their loyalty to Mountain Dew, a three-way with Chris Cooley promising to live like a peasant for a year for a chance to play one-on-one against Butler can't be far behind. Read more at Shutdown Corner, where Cooley also details his blending into the media pack to shout a question at Carl Edwards.
