This is a post about our kicker (hat tipped to Extreme Skins; if you are on the prowl for Redskins related news, you could do a lot worse than the ES Breaking News Forum).

Patrick Maloney at the London Free Press caught up with Suisham via email and got him to answer a few of the critical questions we've all been waiting for, such as:

SUISHAM SAYS

1) My all-time favourite movie is . . .

Tombstone

2) In the movie about my life, I will be played by . . .

Matt Damon -- according to my wife

3) My favourite food is . . .

Fresh fruit

4) I drive a . . .

F150 SuperCrew

5) I think the best player in the NFL is . . .

Ethan Albright (the Redskins' long snapper)

6) I could retire happy if . . .

Our family was healthy and I didn't have a mortgage.

I, too, appreciate Tombstone and would be played by Matt Damon (it's a looks thing) though I have to part ways with Shazzam on... fresh fruit? Oh really, Shaun? Well then I'm calling you out and demanding you take a giant delicious yikes bite out of a fresh durian which, per Wikipedia per some book can be described something like... this:

... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia.

Mmmm, I'll have that.

Two other points worth noting from the LFP: First, he's running his second football camp for somewhere around the neighborhood of 200 kids kicking off (like my moves?) June 21st. I find the mere existence of kicker football camps especially worthwhile since God cursed me with no talent yet with the primal urge to see my offspring succeed where I fail. I won't be growing any Skin Patrol defensive ends anytime soon, but maybe, just maybe, if I raise him from day one to obsess, practice, breath, live, and learn everything kicker, my kid could one day be making bank in the NFL as a professional athlete. Kicking the ball. Probably not.

Speaking of making money, consider this a reminder that we resigned Shaun Suisham to a lucrative base salary contract amounts currently unknown, though speculated on in the range of 435K a year (the LFP article cites to "an unofficial fan site estimate"). My salary bible is PC's Contract Page and he puts the base salary at 520K. Who knows.

Ethan Albright is the greatest player in the NFL. I'm on the record.
