Chris Cooley considering a move into his mother's basement

There is a God; my favorite player on my favorite team is now a blogger. My reaction was totally predictable, as Dan Steinberg points out:

So yeah, Chris Cooley pretty much has what it takes to be a successful blogger. This might be a good time to mention that, with the possible exceptions of Clinton Portis, Fred Smoot and Dmitri Young, there is no D.C. athlete who will be more quickly embraced by the D.C. blogosphere than Chris Cooley.
In my case he's only wrong about one thing; there is no exception. Chris Cooley is the most fascinating player in the NFL and he happens to play for a team I write about daily. And now he has a blog. About precisely the kind of thing most fans find banal for all the right reasons yet I embrace because they're simply too funny and bizarre not to. See:
"We didn't want to do a Web site where a player pays a company to put it up and it looks like what everyone else has," he told me this week. "We want to do a lot of cool stuff that people would be interested in. Like, not football stuff. What we do in real life."
I actually care that Chris Cooley took 21 shots on his girlfriend's 21st birthday, at a strip club. Is that creepy? Probably.

Here is his blog and it is going up on the blogroll immediately. Dan says the entire thing is a scheme to get Cooley's younger brother some money for school, which is fine by me since I'm a sympathetic unemployed student with no income writing a blog. Enjoy, for example, this Pro Bowl entry:

I know that some fans may not like this [picture of Cooley standing next to Jason Witten] because Jason plays for Dallas. All I have to say is that he is a great guy and an awesome tight end. If that's not enough, think back to our last three home games against Dallas. 35 - 7, the last second field goal, and 27 - 6.
Hail to Captain Chaos.

PS, Mr. Irrelevant knows what time it is.
