Spotted: Redskins Crotch Rocket

This showed up in my Facebook feed the other day thanks to the DIE HARD REDSKINS FAMILY group, which I guess I’m a member of. Without knowing anything about sports bikes, I asked our brother Beef, who used to own one, what we’re looking at here. His reply:

Pretty sure that’s just a chicken head sitting on a sweet Redskins crotch rocket. I’m pretty sure I want that too … the bike, not the chicken head.

Thanks, Beef.

Redskins Great Pat Fischer Signing Hooters Girls (VIDEO)

With Steve Sabol passing earlier this week I was hoping to post the great piece he/NFL Films did on 1970s Skins cornerback Pat Fischer. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it anywhere. (Please send it along should you have better luck.)

I did, however, find the clip embedded above, which is just strange enough to post instead. It’s a 2008 video, shot at the Card Cellar in Fredericksburg, Va., of Fischer autographing the shirts of four very game Hooters girls. Fischer is clearly up for the task himself, even (especially?) at 68, despite the deep-core mouth-breathing of whoever it is working the camera.

Also, watch for the guy at the table behind Fischer, who may or may not be the real-life inspiration for Comic Book Guy. I love card shops.

Nat Gio + Mark Rypien’s Girl?

I can neither confirm nor deny Larry Brown Sports’ gumshoe social media report that Mark Rypien’s lingerie football-playing daughter, Angela Rypien, is dating Gio Gonzalez, but I want to believe it. So, until Reliable Sources or some such proves otherwise, they are hereby the first couple of D.C. sports blogging, destined to have beautiful, Super Bowl MVP/NL Cy Young award-winning children.

Update: Gio denies that they’re an item.
