As you are no doubt aware, the outcome of the last Washington Redskins home game prior to a presidential election predicts the result. A Redskins loss means that the incumbent party will lose the White House – so hopefully Barack Obama has already called Coach Tomlin to thank him for the fabulous thumping the Steelers administered to the ‘Skins. We watched the game last night with Pittsburgh Friends (PF’s) and PFs’ Pittsburgh Friend (a Pretty Cool Chick, henceforth known as PCC) and were honored to realize that a historic presidential candidate was likely rooting for the Stillers right along with us.
Also, OMG did you see Byron Leftwich??? He totally earned a “The.” The Byron kicked some pretty damn serious ass. Little passes, BIG passes, hilariously effective play-action fakes – nice hustle, kid [pats buttock]. It was also fun to watch Jason Campbell not be able to stay upright and get intercepted for the first time this season, and Clinton Portis get held to less than half his average yardage for the previous 8 games. I love defense. I think Portis said it best:
We were hoping to go out and play our football, play smash-mouth football. Instead, we got smashed.
