Lasting, disturbing 'MNF' Redskins images
A few lasting images from Monday Night Football to give you holiday heartburn and possibly incurable brain burn. Viewer discretion advised.
Haynesworth hunched over
During the Giants' first drive, Albert Haynesworth found his way to the sidelines, and then hunched over, like so, with a trainer's hand on his shoulder. The camera quickly cut away. Who knows what he was up to? Possibly drawing up some defensive formations in the dirt. But you always get worried by this particular sort of hunch, if you're the sort that is averse to certain bodily fluids.
Zorn's stare of misery
There's this one look that Jim Zorn always seems to get when things go poorly for his team. These are taken from three very different points in the game, but all were bad points. I mean, I guess the whole game was a bad point, but these followed very specific bad things.
The Zorn look does not inspire fire-breathing confidence, to me, anyhow. It's more a look of "man, I wish I was home drinking hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire and reading that new Daniel Silva novel."
Speaking of hot chocolate, here's the best postgame e-mail I received, from Reader Dan:
I went to my first game at FedEx tonite. And while the experience was all I expected (that scoreboard is pathetic...terrible leaving stadium parking lot...not one traffic cop in sight)---by far the strangest part of the night was after waiting for hot chocolate for 15 minutes on line, then ordering it, and then waiting another 10 minutes since they ran out. [Eventually] I was given a cup of hot water and a Swiss Miss packet. I actually had to make it myself. I don't really ask for much from my stadium concessions, but this was a new one.
LaRon Landry tackles
Look! There's a guy holding the football! I'm going to run toward him!
What's that one saying about objects in motion wanting to remain in motion, or whatever?
Eh, might as well tackle this guy 10 yards deep on the sideline wearing a bright orange vest.
Bruce Allen was a wholesome young man
Look how wholesome. He's the one on the far right.
Bruce Allen was...doing something
During one shot of the coach's box, the team's new general manager kept putting this cup up to his mouth, but he never really made a drinking motion. Just kind of put that cup to his lips.
Also, hi Sherm!
An ogre showed up
Via @cainomac on Twitter come three photos of an ogre who showed up in the stands Monday night. The team appreciates your support, sir.
