Fred Smoot's House is For Sale
Remember the house tour Fred Smoot gave me last year? Well, the tour guide might soon be less quotable. According to my colleagues at The Reliable Source, Smoot's 7,000-square foot Great Falls mansion is on the market, with a price tag of $1.695 million. "He's downsizing," he real estate agent said. Wonder what happens to The Fred Room. And also to his official wall monogram, seen above.
In other news, our friends at BetUS.com sent out a release this morning on the job security of NFL coaches. They have Jim Zorn's odds of being fired before Week 1 of the 2010 season at 3-2, and he's listed at 4-1 to be the next NFL head coach fired, after Dick Jauron (3-1) and Jack Del Rio (7-2), and right in front of Wade Phillips (9-2).
(Zorn was asked about job security during his weekly radio hit on ESPN 980 yesterday: "I won't even answer that question. I'm trying to get ready for Detroit. I'm not worried about my job," he said, according to the Wash Times. Tough biz, when The Jim Zorn Show is talking about the future of Jim Zorn.)
(Leading contenders for "first coach hired," on the other hand, include Jon Gruden at 5-4 and Mike Shanahan at 7-4.)
In other news, Rocky McIntosh's latest blog item also touches on the booing question, although that wasn't his main point. "Fans, cut us some slack with the booing," he wrote. "We like constructive criticism but we also need your support to make it through the season."
Also, Clinton Portis is officially on Twitter, though he hasn't posted much of anything yet. Or anything, really. This is his official account, though.
And here's an argument that a total disaster of a Redskins season might be just what's needed. (From East Coast Bias)
And here's an argument, in the Miami Herald of all places, that Daniel Snyder is the NFL's worst owner. It comes from Len Shapiro. Bear in mind that Michael Silver ranked Snyder 8th just a few weeks ago. That's a pretty big difference of opinion.
And here's Shaun Suisham and Lindsay Czarniak hanging out in a hockey rink. Suisham says he hated the awkwardness of competing for his job this summer, that one of his strengths is forgetting about misses, and that he hopes to be here for another five years.
