The 5 O'Clock Club: The Sunday special 555 edition

New, comments

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

A sleepy Sunday in late-July. Basically there’s nothing interesting that is NFL-related to talk about, especially since the Kirk Cousins “will he or won’t he” question has been settled. NFL-related articles this time of year — almost by definition — are fluff and filler.

“Fluff and filler” makes me think of Rich Tandler, who manages to fill column-inches by ‘counting down’ key dates like the start of training camp, the deadline for signing franchise-tagged players, or the first pre-season game.

But Tandler is best known for his lists of 5 things.

Never 4 or 6. Somehow, in Tandler’s universe, everything fits neatly into lists of 5 things.

Here at the 5 o’clock club — of course -- we also love the number 5.

As I was thinking about the 5 o’clock club post for this morning, I realized that Redskins Training Camp in Richmond, Virginia starts 5 days from today (accounting for some time-zone issues between Bangkok and Richmond).

Fresh on the heels of yesterday’s “Sleep-in Saturday” post, in which we added 5 new names to the “Greatest Redskins” list, I thought we should continue the theme of 5.

To celebrate the fluff & filler “five things” list, today, I’d like to invite you to list 5 things that you are looking forward to for training camp, or the 2017 regular season.
