Tracee Hamilton to discuss the Redskins during First Things First

Join Post columnist Tracee Hamilton for the latest edition of her "First Things First" chat, Monday at 9:30 a.m.

Submit your questions, but first, read on to see what's on her mind:

Once again, so much to talk about, so little time. We've got Game 6 tonight in Montreal, with Coach Bruce Boudreau throwing some of his players under the bus, then fishing them out again before they got run over.

And we've got a little Redskins news to rehash. New draft picks, plus the departure of Jason Campbell, and the non-departure of Albert Haynesworth -- and whatever else you want to discuss. Join me!

Politics make the world go round. We americans reveal our political leanings in everyday conversation whether we realize it or not.

Take for instance this moron: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36769422

He believes in aliens. Yet there is no proof of their existence. I bet he doesn't believe in God and I bet his argument is there is no proof of God's existence. Go figure.

"Who gets/has to wear 17 now?"

Mr. Terrance Austin should.

Think of it:

Austin--#17

Kelly--#12

Thomas--#11

Mitchell--#84

Moss--#89

Mitchell should switch to, say, #15.

Topic: Trading McNabb in 2011

I have a question on what the Redskins can potentially do with McNabb and here is my scenario. If McNabb don't sign a contract with the Redskins in 2011 can we place a franchise tag on him and then trade him like the Patriots did with Cassel. Lets say trade him to the ...Vikings? for a 2nd round pick?...is this possible or can it be done???

Two landmark measures putting new restrictions on abortion became law in Nebraska on Tuesday April 13, 2010 including one that critics say breaks with court precedent by changing the legal rationale for a ban on late-term abortions.

Gov. Dave Heineman, signed both bills, one barring abortions at and after 20 weeks of pregnancy and the other requiring women to be screened for mental health and other problems before having abortions. Both sides of the abortion debate say the laws are the first of their kind in the U.S.

A national abortion rights group appeared to be girding for a legal challenge, calling the ban after 20 weeks “flatly unconstitutional” because it is based on the assertion that fetuses feel pain, not on the ability of a fetus to survive outside the womb.

Apparently that national abortion rights group has never seen video of an abortion. There must be some reason the fetus appears to be avoiding and squirming as the abortion instrument tries to end its (if it's not life I don't know what to call it)

Solid post.

I thought Shanallen drafted well, too.

We started out with 4 picks, and took home 6 players, most importantly, three linemen, one a starter.

I want to see how Clark, Morris, Slocum, Capers, and Austin washout with the team.

The Austin picks stands out as he and Thomas make a nice speed pair to use as returners or deep threats.

Next, I bet they snag some released players that might be a surprise, too.

Here's a pretty cool article on the 40 yard dash...

http://www.strengthcoach.com/public/1140.cfm?sd=51

For those that were questioning speed:

"Here's another angle on the whole "speed" thing. Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis ran split times of 4.67 for 40 meters ( Bryan, Rose-Hulman)

40 meters is 43.74 yards. This would make the distance approximately ten percent further. This means we could reduce the time by approximately .36 seconds to account for the additional 3.7 yards. This would mean that in constant acceleration mode the best sprinters in the history of the world, using blocks, ran 4.31 for 40 yards."

"With large families of the Slav native population, it suits us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply. It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions, and doctors must be forced to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."

Circling back to Blount dissing the 49ers for the Titans, I have no beef with that. I am pretty sure that the 49ers - and probably every other team in the league - would point to the lack of a signed contract as a way to get out of a verbal arrangement if it served their interest. So Blount did exactly the same thing. Fine. I don't see that changing his talent level. If anything, he may have a better chance of making a 53 man roster with TN.

Here's my thoughts.

1. If there are alien visitors, our political leanings won't much matter.

2. I don't know if there's a God. I can't prove there is. Can 't prove there isn't. And neither can you. Believers are faith powerd. Atheists are Ego powered. We don't understand Dark Energy, how Gravity works or whether Shrodinger's cat is alive or alive. You aren't smart enough to know for sure.

3. Hope there is a God because I'd like to see how the movie ends.

4. If we are the only "intelligent" life in the Universe, God sure did overbuild the place.

5. If I had a bet, I'd bet thousands, perhaps millions of intelligent civilizations, with billions of years head starts on us have come...and gone.

6. If I encounter an ET, my first question will be. "Is Tommy Lee Jones, right? Did Elvis really just go home?"

Hey, we agree!!! I particvularly hate cheap pounces.

Scariest "horror flick" I saw was "The Thing from another Planet" the original early 50s version...

What was scariest was the saucer crashed north of the arctic circle, in Greenland, I think. I saw it in Greenland. My Father was an Air rescue Pilot in Narsarssual (BW-1) Greenland.

Show lese, scare more. The best thing happened to Spielberg was the Shark breaking in "Jaws" As a result the fear was more implied than shown, and as a result, much scarier and more effective.
