Happy Labor Day!

There's not a lot of good that comes with the end of summer, but college and NFL football surely help. I know some troops abroad read this sight, so we want to take a quick second as we do every holiday to thank all the fine men and women who risk their lives for this country.

Seventeen years ago to the DAY, the Redskins opened their season with a Monday Night home against...the Dallas Cowboys! The Death Star was coming off their Super Bowl win but we're playing without Emmitt Smith, who was holding out at the time. It was a FINE day for the Burgundy and Gold who shredded the Cowboys 35-16 in Richie Petitbon's first game as a head coach.

What was Mark Rypien's final season with the Skins, he threw for three TD passes. BMitch ran for 116 yards on 21 carries and 2s TD along with single TD receptions from Ricky Sanders and Art Monk. The Redskins forced 4 turnovers that game, something I hope they repeat 6 days from now. HTTR.
