Just like the world was suppose to come to a crashing halt when the clocks rotated to year 2000, the Mayans predicted a long time ago the world would end on 12/21/2012 at 11:11AM (local Mayan time). Right as the Redskins get out of the down years and get RGIII, it's; all over. Well, at least the Redskins won't leave this world with extra draft picks from the future!!! Maybe Vinny Cerrato's calendar was off every year.
Since we've become a bit of a family, let's break this thread into one of two ways:
- What's your favorite Redskins memory of all time?
- What's your favorite Hogs Haven memory?
Steve Shoup: My favorite time/post was how the writers and community came together to keep quality content flowing during the lockout. It was a time that should have killed our traffic and stories, but thought that we produced a lot of quality free agent and draft content during that time. Parks' position-by-position free agency series that summer that allowed the readers to vote on who they should get, within a budget was great work and a lot of fun to be a part of.
Tiller: I gotta use this at my own expense. I gotta go with the multiple comments I made on Alfred Morris, and how I though he shouldn't even make this roster. You know, I'm not wrong often, but boy was I wrong with him, haha.
If you think of anything else I did stupid over the last three year (like my obsession with the Twilight Saga, or calling Eric Dane a good looking dude), feel free to add those.
Ken Meringolo: I have many, but I suppose I will harken back to the first time we were invited to cover a closed minicamp with other members of the media at Redskins Park. Kevin and I stood on the sidelines, in the rain, next to Jason La Canfora who was working for the Washington Post at the time. You name the amateur move-we made it. We did an extensive interview with Stephon Heyer with Kevin holding a handheld mini-recorder. About three-quarters of the way through, I looked at Kevin and could tell by the look on his face that the recorder was not working. He still held it out there...and I still kept asking questions. I am pretty sure Kevin asked Jim Zorn about the offensive line depth chart for Week One...this was a minicamp held in late May.
Read the full article from that day here...you won't regret it.
So what's your favorite memories. And, it was nice knowing you.
