Posted by SuckaFish

Cowboys tonight, Patriots tomorrow. We at the SWAGLESS Network are fired up for the playoffs. Even one of the Swaglettes is channeling Jim Mora.

Cowboys 21, Panthers 7: Felix Jones Is Unstoppable, Stopped

Posted by SuckaFish

Only two things can stop Felix Jones, injuries and Jason Garrett. Both did Monday night.

Jones carried the ball eight times for 94 yards, an 11.8 average. So why did he only get eight carries? He left the game in the third quarter with a left knee strain but he should have had 20-25 touches by then.

The Cowboys scored zero points in the first half. They twice had the ball at the one before settling for field goals. And still they beat the Carolina Panthers 21-7 for their first win in Cowboys Stadium.

They Are Who We Thought They Were: Lions 19, Redskins 14

Lisa: Dad, do you know what schadenfreude is?
Homer: No, I do not know what schadenfreude is, please tell me because I am dying to know …
Lisa: It’s a German term for “shameful joy”, taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

That pretty much sums up my feelings today. See some of my favorite quotes/links about the game at Surrounded by ‘Skins.

New Name for the Redskins

Posted by SuckaFish

The Supreme Court has been asked to hear arguments in a case that says the Washington Redskins team name is so offensive its trademark should be revoked.

My understanding is that basically the Redskins will have to change their name by next Sunday’s game. Back in college I minored in U.S. History so I’m kind of an expert on this stuff. Best case scenario, the team will need a new name by next season so let’s get ahead of the curve and come up with the one now.

Take Two

Posted by SuckaFish

Everybody and their mother has a mediocre blog by now. We’re better than that. We’ve created a network of six mediocre blogs. SWAGLESS will be the hub and will run its own content and posts from the other five. So what the hell are they? Who knows what will happen but for now SWAGLESS is where we’ll make obnoxious comments about the worlds of sports and entertainment. Here’s a quick rundown of the others:

Surrounded by ‘Skins: I’m a Cowboys fan living outside Washington, DC. I’ll post about the ‘Boys, mock the ‘Skins and their fans, and anything else happening in the league.

Route 1 to Lot 1: It’s all about the Maryland Terrapins. Everything from how much weight the Fridge has lost since last season to how much weight the Fridge will gain this season.

Natinals Natin: Counting down the years till Strasburg saves us all.

Stop Throwing Hats: Following the Washington Capitals, the two-time MVP, and the whiny bastards on every other team in the league.

The TCU Horned Blog: Perhaps the only blog based on the east coast covering TCU sports.
