We all heard about the death of iconic NFL owner: Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. It’s only fitting that as HUGE fans of the NFL that we show respect for a man who left a huge mark on the game. While we personally did not agree with many of his decisions (and we weren’t the only ones), we certainly love the fact that Al Davis was brazen enough to walk to the beat of his own drum. As African-Americans, it’s also great to see what he contributed to the game in terms of diversity. Here’s to you Al Davis for bringing mystique and BOLDNESS to the NFL, along with that vertical passing game. This quote of Al Davis really sums up his belief in the vertical passing game: “When we came out of the huddle, we didn’t want first downs and move the chains. We wanted touchdowns-the quick strike. We were going to take what we wanted and that was Raider’s Football” Raiders Football was Al Davis. R.I.P. Continue reading

My very best girlfriend (of almost 20 years!) and I have many things in common. We both LOVE football. Taking after her mom, she is a HUGE fan of the Dallas Cowboys. I remember going to her moms house for Super Bowl parties (WAY back in the day) and thinking “The Redskins will be back” HA! While we are never on the page for love of football teams, we both share another passion: Breast Cancer Awareness!
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an international campaign promoted and supported by a variety of charities, organizations, and companies. The purpose of this initiative is to bring awareness to the disease, promote early detection to save lives, and finally to raise funds for research and the future possibility of a cure.

HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 2
Burgers on the grill is how we kicked off Week 2 of NFL games on a crisp early fall day in Washington, DC. Kudos to the NFL network and ESPN for starting game day coverage even earlier this year. It’s fantastic! I fully expected my Redskins to go 2-0 heading into Dallas and they did not disappoint…well sort of. They should have blown OUT the Cards but due to mistakes, they let them hang around the whole game. Still..a win is a win and now WE WANT DALLAS!
I continue to be impressed with Cam Newton! He certainly has that star quality! He still needs to learn personnel on the field though…Charles Woodson is pretty good. I think he must have forgotten.
As a Cowboy fan coming off another loss at the mistake prone hands of Tony Romo, it wasn’t a good week for me. I heard it from everybody and everywhere: people on Twitter, Facebook, co-workers, employees, customers!! I even see my boss’s boss and the first thing he says to me was, “Hey Daryle, HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!”. Then he sends me a work related email using the tagline, HTTR. Since I wear my Cowboy colors proudly, I take it, but I also give it. I even got into a friendly twitter battle yesterday with a fellow blogger @Sports_R_Me_MP3, who loves his Niners, who happened to be playing my ‘Boys. Now before I get to the game, I ripped Romo last week for giving away another game. I wiped my hands of the QB. But yesterday, after being knocked out of the game with fractured ribs, Romo toughed it out to lead the ‘Boys back in an OT victory, after being down going into the 4th quarter. Romo is in no way off my Hit List, but he showed me and a lot of fans what he is actually capable of doing Continue reading
