It’s a little tense in the TSWoFA (The Sarah Winchester of Fiber Arts) household today. At 3 pm CST, the mighty Washington Redskins will commence a ritual payback buttwhupping of the lowly Seattle Seagulls…er, Seahawks. The ‘Skins are playing for a spot in the playoffs, and are in a good position to earn one, tied for second in the NFC East. The ‘Hawks are playing for a slightly more comfortable position in the NFC West basement.
So, why would this game cause tension here? Well, I think it’s pretty clear where I stand on today’s game, and my bright little son stands with me. Steve, on the other hand, grew up near Seattle. I guess I really can’t blame him for that–he didn’t choose where he was born–but I can hold him responsible for his unbearably cocky attitude after the ‘Skins lost to the ‘Hawks in the playoffs 2 out of the last 3 years. Not that it did the Seahawks any good, since they lost in the Super Bowl one year and didn’t make it that far the other…but it’s still further than my ‘Skins went and he’s nothing loathe to remind me of that when he can.
Today, we get some of our own back.
Hail to the Redskins!
Edit: Own gotten back. Hail victory!
