Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few days, you’ve heard about the record-setting performance that Mike Vick had in the bright lights of Monday Night Football in Washington against the lowly Redskins. Vick threw 4 TD’s and ran for another 2 in the 31 point beat down that the Eagles put on their division rivals. Although the team itself didn’t seem to have much to say about the historic loss, some die-hard fans of Redskins Nation weren’t so prone to holding their tongues.
Chad Dukes, a well-known Washington DC radio personality let loose an epic rant the day after the MNF slaughter. Chad was on air with retired former Redskin LaVar Arrington, and began by talking about how his relationships with his deceased grandfather and his father were mostly based on Redskins football, and proceeded to call out everyone for their role in the performance. “You let Mike Vick score 6 TDS? MIKE VICK WHO WAS RUNNING THE WILDCAT LAST YEAR AND IN PRISON THE YEAR BEFORE?”
Now, as a faithful Giants fan (GO GIANTS!!!), I have no love for the Redskins at all. But, as a sports fan, you have to feel for true fans of bad teams like the Redskins. Say what you will, but its clear that this guy is a true fan whose frustration bubbled over into this epic moment. I mean, can you blame him? As a sports junkie myself, I dedicate a HUGE amount of time watching and studying sports. How would you feel if your team’s “best player,” the highest-paid defensive player in the league at the time the deal was signed, pulled some shit like this on national television?
Shout out to Chad Dukes. I feel your pain my friend, and everything he said was correct…well, except for that whole “Redskin reparations” thing…o_O #toofar
Good ole #Redskinsfail
PS: As a Giants fan, I hate the Eagles even more, but i’ll admit that Vick is BALLIN…Yall got him as the MVP so far?
Shout out to my boy Ramon over at A Thousand Grams (@athousandgrams) for the linkage to the rant.
