Packers 28, Redskins 14

I just love to sit in front of the fire on a chilly evening and read a really good coincidental correlation. Don't you?

And, if ESPN on a Sunday evening is involved in any way, I'm in heaven. Not to say that ESPN brought any of this up, because actually they did a great job of completely ignoring the karmic issue here. Good for them.

But let's get to the re-cap:

Yesterday at FedEx field in Washington DC, John Kerry topped off a good early drive with a field goal midway through the first quarter, and took the home constituency almost completely out of the game with two TD's in the second quarter. George Bush stemmed the bleeding and got back into the game with a late TD that kept the faithful in the stadium for the break, but Kerry was nevertheless up at the half 17-7.

Whether it was offensive ineptitude or just good big-play defense, John Kerry rolled fairly efforlessly through the second half. After a Kerry field goal in the third quarter, Bush made it nominally interesting with an interception and quick score with but 4 minutes remaining in the game. Kerry answered with another very late touchdown and even included a 2-point conversion to put even the slightest possibility of a comeback out of reach for GW Bush.

Final Score John Forbes Kerry-28, George Walker Bush-14.

Err, I mean, Packers 28-14 over the Redskins.

In other sports news, the Chargers creamed the Raiders yesterday. Baby.
