Can you feel it? A lot of people can. The R word. No, not "Redskins." Not "rutabega." That's right, baby. REVENGE. And REMATCH. All right, that's two. But you get the idea.
Now, back in the playoffs, things can come full circle for the Washington Redskins. And it seems to me that a MASSIVE karmic re-alignment is in store, as they square off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have been getting over on the Redskins and acting like rock stars in this league for far too long. They're the Bucs, for God's sake. Time to bring those assholes back to earth. And it happens this Saturday. 4 p.m. Be there.
Hmmm...do you think Sean Taylor's gonna bring it tomorrow?
Not only am I talking about the November loss, which came on a controversial two-point conversion, I'm talking about the 2000 game, which was the Skins' last playoff game before this one, in which the Skins botched a game-winning field goal on a bad snap.
And hey, the Bucs have been due for a crushing for some time. The recent Super Bowl win, Gruden becoming a glamour boy. Don't they have a serious butt-whooping coming? And who better to do it than the Washington Redskins?
We'll see how it shakes out on Saturday. The Skins are still the underdogs, but I think they can do it. God help me, but I really believe they can do it. GO SKINS!
