Updates on Burned Cars and Redskins Rules


(By Charles Agel - AP file photo)


Quick updates on lingering Redskins stories:

* Heath Shuler wins re-election to Congress.

* The Redskins Rule lives on, with Obama's win making the RR either 17 of the last 18, or 18 of the last 18, depending on your definition.

* Remember yesterday's item about the cars that went up in flame in the FedEx Field lots? I'm going to go ahead and guess that someone's judgment may have been impaired. From today's Metro section:

Someone -- one person whose sport-utility vehicle was burned said she suspects it was a Steelers fan -- placed a grill full of hot charcoal in the trunk of a car before going into the stadium, sparking a fire that destroyed eight vehicles and damaged one or two others.

Yeah. "Placing a grill full of hot charcoal in the trunk of a car" ranks somewhere around "lathering your windshield with aged Stilton for an August preseason afternoon game in 103 degree heat" on the list of strange tailgating ideas. Our story has the latest numbers: 20 firefighters, a 25-minute battle with flames, and damages of $150,000. Plus this priceless quote from the Fire Department spokesman, a Maj. Wood: "The lesson learned is don't put hot coals in the trunk of your car."

* Finally, remember my item about the "worthless tricks" Jim Zorn does with footballs on the sideline during pre-game warmups? The Redskins Blog finally gets some video of the trickeration.

"The lesson learned is don't put hot coals in the trunk of your car."

Seriously?...this is something someone needed to learn the hard way?
