Vince Gray, Adrian Fenty, the Redskins and beating yourself
At this morning's unveiling of design plans for a new Dunbar High School, Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) and Mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray (D) engaged in a recently popular civic pastime: making fun of the Redskins. But in what is likely to be their last appearance together before the Jan. 2 inauguration, the ridicule might have turned to metaphor.
It started when Gray noted that Dunbar, his alma mater, has several graduates playing in the National Football League, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Arrelious Benn -- a cornerback who Gray said "contributed" to the Skins' 17-16 loss Sunday.
"The Redskins beat themselves," Fenty added.
"That happens often. Doesn't it, Mr. Mayor?" said Gray to Fenty, who lost his reelection bid despite a hefty cash advantage and a passel of accomplishments that would make any incumbent candidate envious.
"Every week," Fenty replied.
