A Note To Washington Redskins Fans

Dear Redskins Fan,

It doesn't have to be like this. There's a way out. You don't have to keep doing this to yourself. Doing what? Oh come on. You know damn well what. You're miserable this morning. Why?

Because... The Redskins.

Every weekend, you tell yourself it'll be different. "Maybe we'll just stick to running the ball this weekend. We're going to avoid turnovers this time. No dumb penalties." And on and on. Then you wake up on Monday morning, and it's the same old story. Drowning in a sea of self-loathing, feeling beaten and battered by life. And you ask yourself: Is this how everyone lives? Is this what life's supposed to feel like?

During yesterday's game, Dick Stockton said at one point, "The Rams are really starting to feel it right now." At that, one of my Redskins-obsessed friends cried out, "WHY CAN'T I FEEL ANYTHING?"

But it doesn't have to be this way.

If you share your pain with others, then together, you can transcend the struggle. Ask your higher power for the grace and serenity to not care when Donovan overthrows a receiver, or when Coach Shanahan abandons the running game. Or when the "rejuvenated" Redskins lose to probably the worst team in the NFL.

Join Danny Rouhier at Redskins Anonymous today, and you, too, can beat this terrible disease. A pot of bad coffee, a group of good people, and one terrible, terrible football team...

Sounds like a recipe for healing.

Get help before it's too late. 2010 was supposed to be different.

But then, don't you say that every year?

Sincerely,
Sharp

P.S. Yes, I'm a Cowboys fan, but remember, we gloat because we care.
