I just returned to Rome after being gone for two weeks to Nashville, Louisville, and Pittsburgh. It was a wonderful holiday that I had no need to end.


















HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!
They amazingly won their last 5 games to finish 10-6 and make the playoffs for the first time since 1999. I credit it all to Joe Gibbs. And Brunell deserves some credit as well, I did bash him a few weeks ago. He was solid and I am glad he is the Redskins QB. But it was nice to see Patrick get some playing time against the Giants and throw a TD pass. But these last three games, 35-7 over the Cowboys, 35-20 over the Giants, and 31-20 over the Eagles were pure team efforts. Clinton Portis and Santana Moss has incredible years, breaking the Redskins season records in rushing yards and receiving yards, respectively.

I am working on my top 10 albums of 2005, I'll post it soon.
