1 TCCL - Skins Defense. Won't stop falling 'til they're ranked dead-last in the NFL?
1 TCCL - US Soccer Federation. Another international match day passes without a friendly or national team training camp. Who needs a stinking coach, anyway?
1 TCCL - Rotating quarterbacks. Redskins are taking this to an art form. 17 since 1993 with a 74 collective passer rating. Team's record 93-123-1 since JJG left.
2 TCCL - TomKat wedding. Could it possibly last as long as Fed-Ex? Wonder if The Snyder will try to sell some Redskins gear from the back of his limo in Rome.
3 TCCL - Emmitt Smith. Wins Dancing With The Stars, but was Mario robbed? My wife was all for Emmitt, since apparently Slater was a pro dancer as a kid or something and should have been disqualified. Whatever.
4 TCCL - T.J. Duckett. Finally gets the ball for the first time in like six weeks, and promptly tears off a 12-yard run. I would have been running my mouth by Week 4, but this dude is a cool cat.
5 TCCL - Jason Campbell. Finally, the kid gets his chance. Something for Redskins fans to be excited about at an otherwise dour time.
Randoms: Thought I would start a new feature and pass along a few obscure album suggestions each week. Stuff like Radiohead, Def Leppard, Wu-Tang, Interpol, Cash, I am going to assume are pretty well knows. I'll try to point out some stuff that might have slipped through the cracks. Anyone who does not own Jeff Buckley "Grace" should. This might be a lil mainstream, but I think it may be the best disc of the 1990s, and, guys, if you don't like it I guarantee your girlie will. Download "Grace," "Last Goodbye" and, "Mojo Pin," "Dream Brother," if you want to ease into it. This dude was going to be a legacy artist - Columbia Records was developing him as a sort of Springsteen for his generation - then he drowned in the Mississippi River just as he was coming into his own and working on his second album.
EPMD "Strictly Business." An unheralded hip-hip classic, with staccato flows, funky beats and probably the best lisp delivery in rap history. Start with "You Gots To Chill" and "Strictly Business" on the download front. For those who prefer the harder stuff, check out New Bomb Turks "Scared Straight." They have other, rougher discs that I prefer, but this is an awesome entry point. Kings of Midwest punk with a rockabilly edge. Saw them at a bowling alley in Detroit once - one of the best shows I have ever attended.
