That time I became a hockey fan & went to Nassau Coliseum to support my Washington Capitals

June 7, 2015 Leave a comment

It’s been many moons since I’ve been inspired to blog. Since I’ve last written a post, I’ve become a huge Washington Capitals fan. Yes folks, I got into hockey. It’s been a great decision (except the fact that the Caps haven’t won a Stanley Cup & I’ve added yet another DC team to break my heart).

Anyway, I had an amazing experience supporting the Caps this season, until it wasn’t amazing. I would blog about this but my buddy Igor did a far better job. Check out my adventures going to Long Island in a Caps jersey during the playoffs with my buds. Who knew supporting your team would end up getting you interviewed by the Washington Post. Grant & Danny, ESPN, Boomer & Carton & more sports sites?

My 5K Running Workout Playlist

February 16, 2012 Leave a comment

I know I’ve disappeared for a long, long while but I’m back, kinda. So yes, you’ve read my headline right. Your girl is training trying to run a 5K race in April. No, I have not signed up to run one yet but I plan to in the near future! Running a 5K is on my imaginary bucket list (I know, piece of cake for the average human but I have lots of jiggle) and I finally decided to stop thinking about doing it and finally do it. Well, yesterday was my first day running on the treadmill since my bout with bronchitis (it was not cute AT ALL). I’m happy to say I didn’t stop and I ran the hilly 5K option on the treadmill in 32 minutes. I thought I was going to die afterwards but I did it!! The only motivation (other than seeing the finish line) was my super duper awesome playlist I made for it. I wanted to share it with the masses 5 readers I have and hopefully, this can motivate you to kick ass in the gym as well. Thank me later!!!

1. Rihanna – Where Have You Been
2. Flo Rida – Good Feeling (DON’T LAUGH! This song cranks in the gym!)
3. Salt-N-Pepa – Push It
4. Beyonce – Countdown
5. Pitbull f/ Ne-Yo – Give Me Everything
6. Rihanna – We Found Love
7. LMFAO – Sexy and I Know It (Again, don’t laugh & judge. This song is stupid funny and very motivated while sweaty!)
8. Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat
9. Magic System – Ambiance a l’africaine (A little African music goes a long way in keeping your energy up.)

Another fun Fatou tip, to stay motivated, not only do I crank these songs up, I pretend that I’m the star video ho in each video. That really keeps my energy. Yes, I’m a fool.

I’m interested to hear your favorite workout songs so I can add them to my gym playlists.

“They can’t even stop a nose bleed.” Bart Scott is hilarious.

January 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Move over Derek Anderson, this is by far my favorite postgame interview of the year. Bart Scott deserves a Golden Globe, Emmy and an Oscar for this. I felt his passion and I really hope the Jets beat the Steelers so we can have more postgame interviews like this.

BTW – LOL at Sal Palantonio’s face. He’s scared to death!

Let’s face it, Rex Grossman is our stopgap QB.

December 21, 2010 2 comments

We all know how this story is ending. Donovan McNabb is getting cut (or in a miracle, traded to Arizona or Minnesota for some draft picks) in 2011. He will no longer be our starting QB which yet again leaves us needing a starting QB again. So, my question to you is, are we ok with Rex Grossman starting for the Redskins while we draft & groom our QB of the future?

Hear me out people before you bash me. I am in no way, shape, or form a fan of Rex Grossman nor did I drink the Kool-Aid after his 4-TD performance vs. a divisional rival. I am 1000% aware of how horrid the Dallas Cowboys secondary has been this year too. But hear me out Redskins nation. This Donovan McNabb/Kyle Shanahan marriage has not worked. It’s heading towards a divorce. McNabb is a square peg that cannot fit in Kyle Shanahan’s “offense”. Yes, 14 of Dallas Cowboys’ points came from Rex’s turnovers. But I’ve never seen our offense in such a rhythm this year as I have in the 2nd half of that Redskins/Cowboys game. Yes, Rex does not have a strong arm & YES, I know Kyle’s offensive playcalling was way different with Rex than it was with Donovan. But clearly, Mike Shanahan realizes that the Redskins are more than a Pro-Bowl QB away from being competitive so are we ok with accepting Rex Grossman as our stopgap as we draft and develop a QB under Kyle Shanahan’s offensive system?

Here’s my thought – If Rex’s BEST QB effort can keep us competitive in these last two games, games against two teams still fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive, then I feel a little better having him as our QB while we PROPERLY rebuild. Now if we can find a way to beat the New York Football Giants in Week 17, a team we haven’t beat since 2007 with OLD backup QB Todd Collins, I’ll be totally impressed & taste the Kool-Aid these damn Shanahans are force feeding us. Cause let’s face it, we have many needs on both sides of the ball that will take years to build so while we remain perennial cellar dwellers in the NFC East as we properly address these needs (hopefully with young talent that can remain with us in the years to come), I could come to be okay with Rex being our starter. MAN that hurt to type that!! Especially since those turnovers that Rex committed were so classic Rex AND very egregious…

No, I’m not ok with us mortgaging draft picks for Donovan McNabb to be our starter for 13 games. No I’m absolutely not okay with how Team Shanahan dealt with McNabb, or the drama of Haynesworthlessgate 2010 but unfortunately, as much as I want to quit this team with this loser shenanigans, I can’t.

So, now that I’ve put myself in the line of fire – what are your thoughts? For some inspiration, here’s Rex Grossman’s performance vs. the Cowboys. Please note, this is his first start since 2008. Not giving any excuses, just facts. Also please please note again, I am not a fan of Rex Grossman either so if when you comment, please remember that.

BTW – very sorry I’ve disappeared lately, my laptop motherboard is fried so I am once again computerless…

Fail of the Day – Derek Anderson channelling his inner Dennis Green

November 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Derek Anderson, you are no Dennis Green. And from the game last night, you are no starting NFL quarterback either. Below is a clip of Derek Anderson going ham on a reporter who asked him why he was seen on the sidelines laughing as his Arizona Cardinals were getting blown out by division rival San Francisco 49ers –

I have a clue of what he was laughing at –

Anyway, he’s the master Dennis Green showing fools how to go off on the media –

This is what happens when you badmouth my quarterback

November 22, 2010 3 comments

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Glenn Close Terrell Owens has a ridiculous obsession with my quarterback Donovan McNabb. Instead of focusing on his quarterback Carson Palmer and his terrible 2-7 record, he always feels the need to comment on McNabb, whether it’s questioning his endurance or just recently, hating commenting on his new contract. Well, obviously, T.O., this is what happens when you speak bad of my quarterback –

When you mess with the Washington Redskins, you get embarrassed in your house by the Buffalo Bills.
