Morning Look: Zorn's Necklace



When Jim Zorn made this particular motion yesterday, he actually wasn't saying anything depressing, nothing about his head hurting or his soul aching or his positive necklace vibes gradually leaking out of his necklace of unknown provenance. Actually, he was talking about Shaun Suisham's missed field goal, and how he could see what happened (high snap, plant foot too far forward) with his own eyes, in real time.

But whatever. This is how I'm choosing to remember Giants-Redskins II, the game that ran Washington's home record over the past three seasons to 11-12. It was wet, but I stayed inside. Many others elected to stay outside and get outlandishly waterlogged. If you ever see those photos, maybe that's how you'll remember this game.

Regardless, it's a kinda big week for local sports. From yesterday to next Sunday, we have the Redskins playing the Super Bowl champs and the I-95 rivals (on national TV), Maryland hoops playing both Georgetown and GW, the Hoyas playing both the Terps and American, Virginia Tech playing Navy in D.C., the (putrid) Wizards hosting both Greg Oden and Kobe, the Caps at home twice, and who knows what other treasures. The Verizon Center will be hot for six straight days, Tuesday through Sunday, featuring seven Bog-worthy games.

And here's my game plan: I'm going to be vacationing in Miami. Sorry, but it was all based on a childcare schedule set three months ago that was pretty much out of my control. Internet traffic is overrated anyhow, right boss?

Both Lindsay Applebaum and I will attempt to check in wherever possible this week, but, you know. Maybe just look at Jim Zorn's necklace and think peaceful thoughts.

This may be the first Bog time that the comment out-funnied the post.

(Not mine, you idiot. The first one.)

You can hardly call what the Hoyas did to the Terps "playing." That was something different--crushing, embarrassing, eviscerating. Take your pick.

Zorn's necklace! Sounds like an oath, like "Odin's beard!" Might catch on, as in, "Zorn's necklace, Plackemeier just pinned them inside the five!"
