We’re talking NFC East…Week 11

Yesterday was a GLORIOUS day! You should know by now that He Said She Said FOOTBALL are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to our NFL teams.  It was only fitting that we be apart of the excitement to see our favorite teams live and in living color.  It turned out to be a great day for football, but it was also great for tailgating, and seeing football enthusiasts like ourselves, enjoy a mild sunny day watching their favorite teams battle it out.  Fans from everywhere were there to take in this game.  We even met a mother and daughter who traveled from Virginia Beach .  It was a graduation gift for the daughter, her wish was to see her favorite team (the Cowboys) play in person.  We also had the good fortune to witness this rivalry in the most regal way possible:  in the SKYBOX at FedEx Field.  There is no other way to watch a professional football game.  Now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t watch a game any other way.  The accommodations were awesome:  all you can eat buffet, in-seat wait service, plush leather seats with climate control.  And the view was amazing!!  It was the best football watching experience that I ever had.

I believe I had the same hopes as most Redskins fans yesterday: “Please don’t let us get blown out at FedEx Field to these BUM Cowgirls!”  With that goal in mind, and excellent seats as an incentive, I suited up in my Burgundy and Gold best and trekked up to FedEx Field.  Of course it would have been awesome to be on the winning side of a 27-24 victory in overtime.  Anytime a fan pays money for a sporting event, they are expecting to be entertained.  It doesn’t get much more entertaining than a divisional showdown that goes into OT.  FedEx Field holds 91,000 fans.  Yesterday I would say the crowd was 50/50 (way too many Dallas fans!).  What that meant was 45,500 people were yelling on every play-regardless of what happened.  It was THE MOST FUN I’ve ever had at a football game!  Trust–I’ve been to many (including this rivalry game in DC and in TX).  This was the best one so far.

A Broken Leg, a QB Change, a Scuffle, and Friendly Fans…Week 6

Once again, yesterday started off much the same as most Sundays during the NFL season do:  mixed with nervous optimism and excitement all at once.  We chose to hang out at Buffalo Wild Wings to take in the action.  We knew there would be a good mix of Skins fans, Eagles fans, Cowboys fans.  But also mixed in the crowd were Giants, Niners, Ravens, and Steelers fans.  The NFL was well represented and it was GREAT.  We love connecting and meeting new fans to share commonality and argue differences.  It was FANtastic!  What more could I ask for, wings, libation and football being the backdrop to a crowded sports bar.  I kept a close eye on the Skins/Eagles, as well as the Giants/Bills game, but the game that intrigued me the most was the Lions/Niners contest.  This was a great back and forth between the two surprise teams.  Of course we know the outcome by now:  the Niners edged the Lions, giving the Detroit team their first loss of the season. But after the game is what everyone can’t stop talking about:  one coach going after the other because of a handshake and a pat on the back?  C’mon Man (yeah, I stole that).  But seriously, are you kidding me.  Here’s my take on it.  One coach was vexed by the loss and the manner in which his team lost and the winning coach was HYPED that his team pull out a win in such a competitive game.  That’s it, case closed.  You got to learn how to stay out your feelings in the NFL, Win or Lose!  I was also happy to see the Bucs rebound from last week’s loss to take out the Saints.  But the most bizarre thing about the game was the coach got injured?  I saw Sean Payton getting carried off the field like he was playing.  I heard of being a player’s coach, but I think he took it a bit too far.  Anyway, we wish Coach Payton a speedy recovery.  Regarding the Cowboys/Pats game, I think the photographic evidence says it all.  

Note to Jason Garrett:  If you are going to have Tony ROmo as your QB, you might as well let him be who he is.  If you don’t trust him, get him off the field.  Mr. Garrett, you should be ashamed of yourself calling a shuffle pass on 3rd down with over two minutes left in the game.  YOU ARE PLAYING AGAINST TOM FREAKIN BRADY!

The Week of the Comeback: Week 4!

We had SO much fun Monday night, that this week we decided we wanted to go where the people are again!  A couple years ago, we watched a Monday night football game at BlackFinn when the New Orleans Saints played the Atlanta Falcons. (the year the Saints wind up winning beating Atlanta and winning the Super Bowl later).  We had such a great time that we decided to go back!

We were NOT disappointed!  If you know about me, you know I love talking trash and being around proud fans of their team.  While I went primarily to check out my Redskins (and the official ESPN 980 post game show was being taped there), there were fans for just about every 1 o clock game on!  Steelers, Texans, Cowboys, Philly, 49ers…and of course Redskins fans!  Everyone was cheering (or jeering) at different games.  They had the sports bar MUST HAVES: lots of huge tvs, lots of beer options, and delicious food!   Check it out:
