The latest offering, with the fun-loving pair taking turns as rappers while eating at Benihana, is somewhere in between.I am not often amused by their on-court antics,but considering the video is short in length and has nothing to do with the Redskins getting shutout (even a brief lockout mention is there for yucks), why not.Redskins ReportEver since his rookie season, I always had a soft spot - and often a roster spot - for Tashard Choice, though it has been clear since last season that Jason Garrett did not.

Hard to argue after losing to lowly Boston College, yet it was after that defeat the main Terpincharge showed improvement (Feinstein - Washington Post)Changes along the Terps football depth chart, including the return of their leading receiver, but not at quarterbackTo waive or not waive Rashard Lewisvia the NBA's amnesty clauseis the question (Wizards Insider)Big East could announce today the addition ofsix teams - three for football, three for all sports. (Washington Examiner)...Temple makes sense, though I get Villanova's objection. Why Memphis is not a foregone conclusion is odd, ig not baffling considering the hoops history.Since I know you were concerned, Tim Tebow remains the Broncos starting quarterback. For this week, anyway. (Associated Press)
