Mrs. Graham is already wincing at the first strains of “Are you ready for some football?” Monday night, fellas, Monday night! The game will stink, but nobody will care. Our fantasy-football league gathered for our draft yesterday, and once again, it was dominated by my colleague Geoff Dickens seeming to move Heaven and earth to acquire his new Washington Redskins idol Clinton Portis from a fellow Redskins fan. We were wondering if Geoff would sink to offering free gin to sweeten the deal.
The highlight of the season this year is our beloved Green Bay Packers coming to Washington for the first time in oh, several decades, at least since I arrived in D.C. in 1986. I acquired tickets last week, so I’m ready to crash the Stephen Hayes tailgate party. I can bring the brats, dude.
