1. Washington Football Team benches Dwayne Haskins
What an absolute clown show in Washington, the decision to bench Dwayne Haskins makes absolutely no sense. The team is going nowhere and making a change at quarterback will not change that. Haskins is someone who was always going to need time and Washington has plenty of it. Let the kid play and figure out exactly what you have in second year quarterback.
In regards to the depth chart in Washington now? Insert garbage can emoji right here. If Haskins was bumped down to the second spot behind Alex Smith that’s one thing, but Kyle Allen is the starter with Smith the backup and Haskins third in line. There is no reason for this as we all know Allen stinks and does not deserve additional playing time.
2. Bill O’Brien fired
About damn time, enough said.
3. Eddie Van Halen
This isn’t sports related but this is something I wanted to express my feelings about. Eddie Van Halen passed away on Tuesday and he is someone who had an impact on my life from a young age. Eddie was the reason I wanted to play guitar, I remember the first time I heard a Van Halen song and it made me say I want to do that.
My first guitar was a Frankenstrat lookalike that I got for $100 at a local music store. Before I even took my first guitar lesson I sat at home mimicking the finger tapping technique that is synonymous with Eddie Van Halen. Was it anything actually close to what he did? No, but I was 8 years old and in my mind I was playing just like Eddie.
You were one of the greatest guitar players of all time and your impact will be felt forever. Rest in peace Edward Lodewijk Van Halen.
