There is a little know species of flower that blossoms every 20 years or so across the Washington D.C. area, and this year is turning out to be something special. The "Trumpetus Interuptus", most commonly known as the "Weeping Foreskin" is making itself known in office building around our nation's capital. These "Weeping Foreskins" are described as bursting with new found confidence and new foliage purchase just days before. You can find the Weeping Foreskins being sold from bandwagons near and far, some reports have them creeping into Baltimore next weekend but don't be fooled these flowers wither at the slightest breeze or loss of sunlight.

I wish I was in DC to see this.  When i was working there the past 2 years I swear I saw more Ravens jerseys.

It sucks, I was at a friends house for the late game on Sunday and people just kept asking me, "why are you wearing your gear?". I just laughed and drank another beer.

I was in a meeting with an Ohio State alumni this morning and we started talking about Archie Griffin (we are both close to 50 years old). Anyway, the bandwagoner started chimming in "I love Archie Griffin, he is the best QB we have had in a while". The lady and I just looked at each other knowingly.

It was hilarious. Only problem is that it was obvious that we were talking about a running back from Ohio State.

Is that why they called me "mushmouth" from Fat Albert when I was a kid?

Just as Skins fans are dusting off old jerseys, Eagles fans are putting their gear away for the winter. The remaining home games at the Linc should be fun.
