Not even in the back of the team bus

Greetings Sunday denizens of Hogs Haven, as you are watching football and perusing news, please take a moment, sit back and ponder:  The Giants lost in the last second on *another* Eli Manning mistake, the Eagles are 1-4 on a four game losing streak, and the Cowboys are stewing over Tony Romo's incompentence on a loooooong week off.  Redskins have sole possession of first in the NFC Beast.

=====

In partnership with Hogs Haven, Curly R's eight part series on the history of RFK Stadium continues, in which we learn what a committed racist George Preston Marshall was, and how Attorney General Bobby Kennedy was not ok with that.

Part One:  Faded Glory
Part Two:  Government Intervention
Part Three:  Race and Football
Part Four:  Monday
Part Five:  Tuesday
Part Six:  Wednesday
Part Seven:  Thursday
Part Eight:  Friday
