The Redskins Are Happy To See Albert Haynesworth, But Not Champagne Happy

Now, that Albert Haynesworth is in camp, he's starting to make the rounds and re-acquainting himself to the team and fans. Anytime you have a Pro Bowl level player back in camp it's good news, but Makae Kemoeatu made it clear that the Redskins are keeping their excitement in check, according to Mike Jones:

"Of course we're glad to have Albert back. ... We didn't pop no champaign or have no baloons, we just ready to work."

Oh well. Some sort of a mock celebration would have been incredibly entertaining, but I get the feeling Mike Shanahan wouldn't exactly be thrilled about such shenanigans.

If there's one downside to Jim Zorn not being coach anymore, it's that this kind of silliness doesn't happen anymore. Then again, if Zorn was still here, Haynesworth probably wouldn't have had to pass a conditioning test in the first place, so I guess it's for the best. At least now Redskins nation can devote their full attention to what's happening on the field. When's the last time that happened?
