I haven’t been all over this great land of ours, but I would argue that August in D.C. is hotter than anywhere else in the country. “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity” is the most accurate cliche ever. The heat index in Ashburn, where Skins camp is, was in the 110-115 range yesterday.
In this little clip from Comcast SportsNet, the Skins players tell us just how hot it is. But really, I post this with the hopes that someone can decipher what Santana Moss says. My best guess is “something some something, something just fried, it needs water.” And Fred Smoot is in it:
Update: My friend and commenter J-Hibb thinks Moss says, “Temp’chuhs Haht! (Tempratures hot!), Groww juh frah (Grounds(grass?) just fried!), It Neez wohtuh (it needs water).” He’s from southern Maryland, that’s how he knows these things.
