Save it for the Super Bowl

Don't ask me about the Monday Night Football game.

Yes, I saw it. Yes, I cringed during the final four minutes. Yes, I thought the boys in blue had a chance even on the last play. And, yes, I was wrong about that.

How 'bout them Cowboys? How 'bout losing to the arch-rival Redskins in under four minutes?

There was only one thing I found more disturbing than the Cowboys' monumental collapse: the Redskins' celebration. After the game went final, the 'skins dumped a gatorade cooler on Head Coach Joe Gibbs. The players were all dancing around, jumping up and down like they had just won the Super Bowl.

In reality, they had come in to Irving, Texas and beat a team they hadn't beat at Texas Stadium in 10 years. I guess that's a big deal, but there are longer streaks than that. When's the last time the Lions won at Lambeau? Exactly.

I know that the Cowboys and Redskins are big rivals, probably the biggest rivals in the NFL (or at least the NFC). I just think that those over-the-top celebrations should be reserved for a time when they are deserved. They aren't for regular-season wins in week two!

Congratulations, Gibbs and crew. You've managed to embarrass yourselves even more than the Cowboys did during the final four minutes.
