Today's Top Five: Would You Rather...?

Lindsay Applebaum here, with some vaguely-sports-related links that will neither inspire nor educate you.

1) The worst "Would You Rather" ever for liberal Redskins fans. (Wall Street Journal)

2) Inside the Caps' glam rock music video shoot. (Puck Daddy) (And see also: OFB)

3) What have you done for the Redskins lately? (Hogs Haven)

4) The fall of two American renegades: Raiders Owner Al Davis vs. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. (Bush League)

5) Video of Chris Rock discussing Bill and Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, the Patriots and Michael Vick. (Gawker)

[Also, if you're so inclined: Steinberg's lengthy doubled-chinned blogterview with Washingtonian, Pete Kendall would like Redskins fans to shut the heck up, and Pacers fans are getting excited about Roy Hibbert.]

Lets not forget that in 2004, the Redskins really DID win their last home game before the election, but they got hosed on a BS "Illegal Motion" call on James Thrash.

So technically, the trend has been true every election since 1948.

Applebaum you should know better about the first item. I was at the game in 2004 between the Packers and Skins and was actually rooting for the Packers. The stadium must have been at least 30% Packers fans full of Cheeseheads and all. And despite a win by the Pack, George W. won re-election. And to be fair, that "illegal motion" call was very legitimate. And I think it was actually on Portis.

Heath, get out of Washington. You're a pest that just won't go away. Can't you pull a Frerotte?

First of all, that flag was absolutely on James Thrash.

Second of all, it's about time a player spoke up about the chanting and cheering during offensive drives, especially when they get down into the red zone. Save it for when they're on defense, fans, and I can give my arms a rest.

Yea, the 'from below' shot never works for anyone....unless you're into upskirt.

The top of the Week 4 ESPN.com NFL power rankings is an exclusive neighborhood. It helps to have an NFC East address.

The Dallas Cowboys lead the pack for the third consecutive week, but suddenly they're crowded by familiar foes. The New York Giants -- who, despite their reigning Super Bowl champion status, usually have occupied a mid-top-10 slot in our rankings -- are No. 2. And despite suffering a Sept. 15 loss to the Cowboys, the Philadelphia Eagles are elbowing their NFC East brethren for the spotlight at No. 3.

The only NFC East team not among the top 5 is the Washington Redskins, who register at No. 15 this week.

I love the Bog, but either Steinz gave a really jerky-sounding interview to Washingtonian or they edited it to make it sound more jerky than it was.

Well, maybe "jerky" isn't the word I want...it kind of makes Steinz sound like a compilation of bits from "Stuff White People Like," from "Asian Girls" (#11) and "Vegan/Vegetarianism" (#32) to "The Idea of Soccer" (#80), and including of course "Gentrification" (#73) and "Microbreweries" (#23). At least he's not yet on "Self-Aware Hip-Hop References" (#107). This makes it seem like Steinz might embody the more general sensibility expressed on that site, which would be worrisome, although it would not stop me from reading the Bog or anything. (Hey, I'd definitely read R. Kelly's blog if he had one.)

Also I'm still waiting on Bonita Appleblog to start doing contests with no prizes again.

Actually, given that the interviewer will always edit the interview to make it as "interesting" as possible, what I wrote above is pretty stupid, and everyone should probably just ignore it (if you weren't doing that already) (which would be advisable).
