    Finding Homer

    by , 05-12-14 at 02:20 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    Amidst the frenzy of post-NFL Draft dissection, the inevitable occurs. The more jaded (they would call themselves ‘realistic’) wring their hands over lost opportunities and busts selected even before a single practice has occurred. On the other side of the spectrum, the ‘homers’ (they would call themselves ‘good fans’) applaud the genius of their NFL front office, whose picks in this year’s draft will surely vault their beloved franchise into relevancy and take them to the Promised Land.

    Jackson!

    by , 04-02-14 at 04:28 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    With apologies in advance to the great Johnny Cash

    Signed a receiver in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
    BGO’s been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since Chip Kelly kicked him out.
    We’ve signed Jackson, you better start lookin’ round,
    Cause if you blink your eyes
    You’ll never run him down.

    Well, go on talkin’ down Jackson; go ahead and tell yourself.
    The mans bad news, cause the signs he use, NFC gonna need some help
    Cause

    My BGO Christmas List

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest ...

    The Last Stand

    by , 11-26-13 at 06:50 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    The Lone Ranger and Tonto were ambushed while crossing Texas cattle country by a large group of Comanche braves. Hiding behind a large rock outcropping, they battled the Comanches until they had fired their last bullets and shot their final arrows.

    ‘Well my red-skinned friend…’ said the Lone Ranger tenderly to his Indian companion of so many years, ‘it looks like we’ve finally come to the end of the road’

    ‘What’s this WE shit white man?’ replied Tonto.

    Promises to Keep

    by , 11-13-13 at 05:58 PM (BGO.C.D.)

    The hill the 2013 Washington Redskins are walking up is gettin’ good and steep.

    Staring a cellar-dwelling 3-6 record in the face, the vast majority of Redskins fans have, along with their short-sleeved shirts and tank tops, packed up hope and optimism for the season. Whether or not the Redskins themselves have packed it in remains to be seen. It’s not 2012. This year’s rendition of the burgundy and ...

    Hell's Bells

    by , 09-17-13 at 06:48 PM (BGO.C.D.)

    My dearly departed Mom was a classy southern Lady with a capital ‘L’. She allowed neither profanity nor expletives of any sort to pass across her Kentucky born and bred lips. Faced with a particularly infuriating or exasperating challenge, she might offer up one of only two verbal outbursts she saved for those special life moments.

    ‘Gussy Goo!’

    Or when that just wasn’t good enough, ‘Hell’s ...

    Monday, Monday

    “Monday Monday, so good to me,
    Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be

    Monday Monday, can't trust that day,
    Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way”


    So Mamas and Papas – which will it be on this 2013 Monday Night Football opener for our beloved Washington Redskins?

    Yeah – I know. Any given Monday, right? Prognosticating based on previous ...

    Kissing Cousins

    by , 08-28-13 at 06:15 PM (BGO.C.D.)


    If Robert Griffin’s the love-of-my-life soulmate I brought home to meet my parents, that must make Kirk Cousins the hot chick I know I shouldn’t want, but can’t help fantasizing about.

    I mean, he’s that dreamy, right?

    Setting the homo-erotic undertones aside momentarily, what on Earth are the Washington Redskins to do with the hot hunka quarterbacking love they’ve ...

    The Colonic

    It takes a little time and effort to really clean out your intestinal tract.
    First, you have to swear off solid food for awhile. Then, you’re forced to ingest about a liter of ‘Golytely’, surely one of the most inaccurately and ironically named products ever. Finally, there are the innumerable and exhausting trips to the bathroom before the body is fully and finally cleansed. It takes awhile to rid ...

    Cowherded

    by , 08-05-13 at 01:56 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    Munsoned (v.) – to be up a creek without a paddle; to have the whole world in the palm of your hand and blow it.

    Cowherded (v.) – to be the victim of outrageously flawed, woefully misguided, and entirely illogical predictions.

    He did it again.

    Forget about being Munsoned - the Redskins just got Cowherded.

    Last pre-season, I rightfully lambasted one of my favorite ESPN radio personalities for his prediction that the Redskins would once ...
