Arlington school earns $10,000 NFL fitness grant

By Rick Maese

As part of the NFL's "Play 60" health and wellness campaign, Redskins running back Clinton Portis, linebacker Brian Orakpo and Tanya Snyder, wife of owner, Dan Snyder, visited Claremont Immersion Elementary Tuesday to present the school with a $10,000 check for health and wellness programming and equipment.

The Arlington school is one of 34 across the country to earn such a grant. More than 5,500 schools nation-wide participated in a contest by planning "Back to Football Friday" events earlier in the school year. Claremont Immersion had to answer essay questions and submit photos from its event.

"It is just so exciting to have a school step up and make such a difference in all of these kids' lives, in the name of health and fitness and in the world of football as well," said Tanya Snyder.

Portis and Orakpo spoke with the children about the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle. The players led the students through 60 minutes of exercise in the "Ultimate NFL Physical Education Class," a program that's part of the league's "Play 60" initiative.

"Just seeing the excitement of these kids. Sitting there, looking around, just realizing -- having kids of my own, one day they're going to have the same opportunity, I hope," Portis said. "It's always exciting to be around kids."

"Just have fun with the little guys and just preach how important it is to stay healthy and be active in the community," Orakpo said.

Going back to the CP Post. JReid states that Portis has missed half of the season. WTF?? Does he know how to add? He has missed roughly a quarter of the season, not half.

Activate the JAmes RB dude and let Torrain play. Get CP in there. Cut Chad when Banks comes back. Championship.

Pencil it in!

(Side note - Does an Arlington County School *really* need $10K? Or should they had found a way to push this $$ to a DC School or PG County School?)

Is that '34' across or 3-4?

See?: they are teaching kids in school to play the 3-4 defense.

Young female teachers worry that some boys spend too much time studying their gaps to succeed in class.

It's no wonder that they can't read.

Football Insider Live: Eagles preview

Barry Svrluga: We are trying to figure out why there are no statistics from this past Sunday's redskin game.

Dan Steinberg: Even without statistics, though, we can say the offense performed as well as it did the week before when it performed poorly.

LaVar: All I know is that I sat in front of the flat screen Sunday waiting for a game just like you're reading this post looking for a punchline.

And there isn't one.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????????

Mr. Straight-Pockets himself, the wife of Danny the midget billionaire and 'Sakpo (nothing to say on him) have the nerve to have their names associated with 10k???

Before you "It's the thought that counts" morons chirp, let's put this in perspective.

Passing on 10k to an elementary school's PE department is probably akin to each of us getting media pub for donating a dollar to our favorite and most deserving campaign.

I would personally be humiliated and feel compelled to - at minimum - match that amount out of my own pocket.

Please keep in mind that school systems are essentially small governments within the local governments and that 10k will be eaten up by administrative costs and planning councils before dollar 1 is put toward those kids.

I'd rather hear more about Hayney's 4 million dollar yacht that Danny bought him or the CP's most recent vehicle purchase than this pathetic effort.

Personal,

Dude please know what your talking about before you put someone down, the players and Snyders wife did not give the money to the school out of there pockets. They presented the check to the school on behalf of the NFL, so if you want to put someone down put down the NFL for being cheap.

If 34 schools across the country got the grant then thats 34,000 so while thats nothing to the NFL I'm sure this is not the only thing they do for charity.

Dude, it's the NFL that gave the $$$ and the Team handing it out. I am sure these people give, but in what way, we don't know. And how much should someone give is debateable. And sometimes your time is very meaningful.

That being said, the NFL could've gave out a bigger chunk. But the PE department can still buy tons of things. New Equipment. Field Upgrades. Free Gym Wear. Etc.

There should be no administrative costs, unless they have to put in the generic 'General Fund'. Yes the same fund that DC MAyor Adrian Fenty stole from to keep the budget balanced while he was the Mayor. Then that would be a travesty.

NAte, it's how one person reads it:

To 4th, a season = 16 games. That's how I read it and reread it after your comment.

Can't wait to see Portis back in the lineup.

iH8's gameplan:

1. Pound it early with Portis/Torain.

2. Use the play action on 2nd and short.

3. CP in on third and long.

4. James Davis and Clinton get the ball in the 2nd half, busting 15-20 yard runs.

AH92 was originally scheduled to appear as well, but this idea was soon vetoed by Old Coach Shanny -- who insisted that Haynesworth first pass a conditioning test before ever being allowed to appear before these impressionable youngsters and talk about the benefits of staying healthy, fit and active.

To his credit Haynesworth started to take the test, but soon had to excuse himself -- citing a call of nature -- and failed to return in time to complete the second half of the exam.

Couple thoughts from watching last nights game. While I despise Terrell Owens, we should have signed him without question. Secondly, even though he is a scumbag we should have traded for Roethlisberger over McNabb. More accurate, younger and more durable. Still making plays while under constant pressure. It is sickening to think we are probably going to be back in the market for a qb at year end.

It is sickening to think we are probably going to be back in the market for a qb at year end.

But this time around, we go into what is a great market.

We can flip our alleged 'elite' quarterback (and AH) into picks no matter how he plays for the final 8 games.

We can use a #1 on a quarterback and the flipped for picks on interior offensive lineman (c/g/rt).

Plus, we have a coach in Shanahan who has an excellent offensive system, so the rookie q-back will be properly trained.

What folks must see is that increasingly, very able young quarterbacks are coming out of colleges that run NFL-lite offensive systems.

There are three kids to choose from who can start on day one next year (Luck, Mallett, Locker).

The whole situation has 'WIN' written all over it if you ask me.

But again, no one is.

Gotta say I'm pretty disappointed with the RI crew here. A haiku challenge was put out this morning involving Dallass and suckery and nobody stepped up. Used to be we would have 30-50 haiku's up in this mofo. What a sorry blog this is becoming.

Hey, I worked hard on my haiku, go back and look. I think I even rhymed it too!!!

I think there were only like 2 or 3 of us that completed the assignment and participated, everyone else was playing with themselves or something.
