Redskins Videos: Eagles Hate, Devin Thomas Being Social
Two approaches to the Redskins offseason: find joy in others' pain, or find pain in others' joy.
The first approach: it's Redskins-obsessed and terminally depressed comedian Danny Rouhier, who finds temporary relief in supporting the Cardinals, because they beat the Eagles. "You can't watch them play and not hate them," he says of Philly. "It's like Duke basketball. It's like the Soviet hockey team. It's like Iraq."
The second approach, finding pain through joy: why, it's Clinton Portis and Devin Thomas, having fun in a South Beach club together, date unknown.
The pain-in-joy thing comes from that breed of fan who believes a night on the town during the offseason is akin to devil worship for a hometown professional athlete, who should instead be memorizing blitz schemes 20 hours a day. Also, maybe there are some who would prefer Devin Thomas not spend his social life with Portis just yet.
"I'm down here with my young boy, my new man Devin Thomas....my new rookie, he gonna come in, he gonna take over the show," Portis tells the camera, about 4:45 in.
"Yo, we're out in this 305 just holding it down," Thomas later adds.
"Mr. Snyder and the Washington Redskins, we've got a driver, we're staying out of trouble," Portis says reassuringly.
"Staying out of trouble," Thomas agreed.
