As an Eagles fan, I'm kind of worried about how good RG3 will make the Redskins. But then I remember this man and his astounding ability to ruin everything forever, and I feel reassured.

So, I wanted to post an "I told you I was hardcore" demotivator here.

I went to Yahoo image search, and typed in "I told you I was hardcore." Figured I'd get some silly goth kids and the like. Nope.

Reams of hard core porn.

Awesome.

So...was he tasering himself in the nuts? (not safe for work NSFW for God's sake Not Safe For Work)

He sounds like a special type. Intentionally tasering yourself?

That was sadly the best part of that game.

I've lived in the DC area for 15 years now. And believe me, the Redskin fans deserve every bit of terribleness to happen to their team. I've never seen fans so over the top. I guarantee you a poll of Redskin fans would have at least 50% saying they should cancel the season and anoint the Skins now as NFL champions after the first game.

It's not surprising, Tiger Woods caught up to some guy to force a play off with a broken leg, and won it. I always wonder how the other guy felt losing to a guy with a broken leg.

It's funny because as a Redskins fan, I went through a similar thought process and ended up hasing a sad.

CSB:
Former co-worker of mine relayed a story. Back in the 80's his father was a pilot for Pan-Am. At the time plane hijackings were a lot more common so the old man started carrying a stun gun and mace in the cockpit. But it occurred to him, "Man, I have no idea if the stun gun even works or if it would keep a person down." So his sun, Patrick, was sleeping on the couch. So he went up and used the stun gun on him.

mooseyfate: Was watching the game on Sunday and a Jags fan from DC said pretty much the same thing.


Bitter fans of other teams who live in DC and biatch about Redskins fans all say that. Redskins fans are no more silly and delusional than fans of any team. All the Redskins fans in my office pretty much agreed "Well, that was fun to watch, but it was really just one game." If anything, the vast majority of Redskins fans in real life are the exact opposite. Beaten Down, discouraged, defeatist fans with abused spouse syndrome. Everyone in my house spent the entire fourth quarter waiting for them to shiat away that 16 point lead (Which they almost did).

'What did I just do?' There's no pain or anything. That's why I was able to keep going back to it over and over again."

Weird dude. Anyhow, the pain of tasing the crap out of yourself apparently does not compare to the pain of long-snapping a football nine times with a broken left arm.


Yeah. Weird how no pain at all is less than the pain of breaking your arm...

I thought it *WAS* on, okay? I'd have no reason to turn it off. Certainly not from here, at work, where I ran the search.

(you guys in IT reading this? I thought it was ON! I swear.)

Most teams don't carry a backup long snapper.

DC sports talk radio this morning:

"He's not RG3. He's RGOD."

While insufferable, the epic quotes from this morning are great to stow away, then use against these idiots in November when Washington is on their inevitable 5-game losing streak and eliminated from the playoffs.

The Homer Tax: Everyone in my house spent the entire fourth quarter waiting for them to shiat away that 16 point lead (Which they almost did).


My buddy Fatass, who was working yesterday, but called me in the 3rd quarter, was simultaneously THISCLOSE to orgasm over RG3 and preparing for the defensive collapse and telling himself "It's only Week 1."

It's like watching a once-battered woman go on a date with a nice guy. I have no idea if it'll hold, but for now I'm just so happy they're happy.

LOL, I'm a skins fan and never understood why people disliked our fanbase so much until I moved to Chicago. They are like that with every team (my favorite line: "The 2005 White Sox forever changed the way baseball is played."). I'm actually pretty much a realist when it comes to the 'Skins but at this point, Ive pretty much embraced the reputation that Redskins fans have. (My favorite was the RG3 'Hope' picture. That earned my facebook profile spot for a few months.)

Fark those raining on the Skins parade...it was a great win over a good team and RGIII exceeded (so far) the expectations. Us lifelong Skins fans have to go way way back to find anything to be proud of and haven't had anything to get excited about for a long time so suck it. Jelly maybe?

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS

In many cases you'd be better off with the guy with the broken arm.

Memory is a bit fuzzy but wasn't there a game not too long ago that the LS was so bad they just stopped punting.
