Good news, bad news

The good news is that Amy's favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals, is headed for the National League Championship Series after a 6-2 win over San Diego. The bad news is that our favorite football team, the Washington Redskins, appears headed for another dismal season after a lackluster performance and loss to the New York Giants Sunday.

Oh well. There’s always NASCAR.

  1. Mr. Thompson,

    I’ve been reading your “rant” and BRM for sometime now and love both of your sites. Keep up the good work(s)! My wife and I will be moving the Richmond area come next June, so we’ll definitely be coming to visit Floyd. It looks like a wonderful community.

    Is there any chance I could talk your wife into coming over to the good side and rooting for the Houston Astros next year? 😉 Alas, my wife’s favorite team will be playing against the Cards. May the best team win (which will be an AL team).

    Also, just curious Mr. Thompson, but it just struck me as odd that you root for a an NFL team whose very name is purely racist especially given your dislike of racist people. I guess you might see it differently though.

  2. As a follow up to my previous post:

    If you’ve already explained this before, then I missed it and apologize. I know it can be frustrating having to explain something over and over again.

  3. Blitz:

    My great grandmother was a full-blooded Seminole and my wife is part Cherokee. No one from the native American side of either of our families find the “Redskins” name offensive and a 2001 Gallup poll of native Americans found that 67 percent of those questioned considered, as did Sean’s mother, the whole thing to be much ado about nothing.

    When I worked on Capitol Hill I got to know Ben Nighthorse Campbell, the only native American to serve in both the House and Senate and he was a big Redskins fan.

    Doug
