It's after 3:30 p.m., so I think it's OK to write a Half Smokes post about something that doesn't have to do with Stephen Strasburg, right? Right?â†µ
I hope so. Whatever, I'm doing it anyway, because I want to send Chris Cooley this message: Dude, you're not a tool. Cooley has been talking up the Redskins' OTA sessions on his blog, with a lot of the rah-rah kind of talk that you hear a lot from people at this time of the year. I don't really see anyone who thinks there's anything wrong with that: it's early, and we expect optimism, especially from a guy as popular as Cooley.â†µ
The only person who thinks there's something wrong with Cooley's language? Cooley himself.â†µ
Finally, I get as bored as the next dude with the constant politically correct football player lingo and newspaper banter and as I reread what I wrote and the article below, I grasp that I'm coming off as a total tool. I don't want to be, so I'll just say that I'm excited for the Redskins to kick ass this season, win a ton of games and have a blast doing it.â†µ
Don't worry, bro. Just be you and kick butt.
