Marcus Washington Goes Bull Riding

Marcus Washington rides the bull.

Here's the biggest difference between Extremist Skins fans and bloggers. The former begin message board threads dedicated to the idea that Marcus Washington "needs to focus more on his play rather than his dance after each play." The latter appreciatively post videos of those dances.

I cannot post those videos, because then the Redskins will call my editors and yell at them, or send off a lawyerly letter, but I can at least go up to Washington and ask for the meaning behind his rodeo-themed spasm of movement following one sort of nondescript tackle.

"I was riding the bull," Washington explained. "Because we talked all week about how Jackson, Steve Jackson was a tough tackle, so I was thinking about, 'Oh, he was like a bull.'

"You know, that one tackle, it was like he didn't want to go down, kept going, kept going, and he finally went down," he continued. "Just made me thinking about riding the bulls. You know, I ride the bulls sometime, and I just thought it would be cool to do it. I've rode a mechanical bull before, but sometimes I just like to do that little dance move, act like I'm riding the bull. I think it's funny."

"Yeah he did the bull, he did the bull," locker neighbor Rob Jackson said, for emphasis.

I also asked Washington about performing a sort of "spinning a windmill" move, but he couldn't place it on a day filled with untold dances, which, let's be honest, didn't change the score of the game.

"I don't know what I was doing," Washington said. "I was kind of rolling yesterday. I was on another level."

As for the future of the bull-riding, "We've got another big running back coming in this week," Washington said of Jamal Lewis, "so we'll see."

Daniel Snyder actually encourages this, and will buy youtube to show all Redskins player celebrations non-stop in 5...4....3...2...
