Back in May, the word was that it would take global warming to get us a Super Bowl bid in our current stadium. Murmur murmur will Dan Snyder get jealous of Jerry Jones stadium? Could Dan Snyder stand being one upped by Skeletor?
The incomparable Chimpanzee Rage suggests that this might once more become your Washington Redskins with a move back into the city:
Adrian Fenty said on Wednesday that he is going to present a proposal to Redskins owner Dan Snyder for a possible a 100,000-seat domed stadium that also could be used for Super Bowls and other major events. DC's Chief Financial Officer Natwar Gandhi has gotten involved and will do a financial analysis of the impact that building this stadium and the return of the Redskins to town will have on the city.
"We don't want to leave," Donovan said. "We're really happy and don't have any other options because we're bound to the lease. It was written in a way to make sure that we play football there for 30 years."
I say this gets done and encourage Mayor Adrian Fenty to pursue the same strategy that got him elected in the first; door to door to door to door to door to door. And he should do so, quickly, as the way our coaching search is panning out there isn't much reason to think this coming season will result in 9 wins and a postseason berth.
