Photo Contest Prize Announcement and a Few Honorable Mentions

The finalists have been selected. Judging is underway — I’m approaching players individually for this — and I hope to announce a winner by Wednesday morning.

In the meantime, the prize has been confirmed: two tickets and a parking pass for the game against the Jaguars on Thursday, August 28th. The seats are in section 241, so the view should be excellent.

And here’s a look at a few of the images that didn’t make the top ten.

  1. It’s spelled “announcement”, you illiterate bonehead. Christ, didn’t Danny give you a spell-checker when he gave you this job? Or at least a reach-around?

  2. Half these pictures are out-of-focus. It looks like you gave disposable cameras to a bunch of drunk homeless bums and let them wander around. I’m surprised you didn’t get a picture of a guy peeing in Danny’s gas tank.

    Good God this blog blows. A photo contest and no one bothers to enter?

  3. Wow, these people hate you, Matt. But on the positive side, at least you have some evidence that someone other than your Mom actually reads this crap.

  4. Don’t listen to them, Matt. They’re jealous because you’re in a spot they could never get. If the blog “blows” (oh yes…there’s a term from an intellectually superior peer) why does he read it?

    I’m jealous, but I’m not a hater.

    Have fun, man. Hail!

  5. Boy, what a couple of jerks. I thought some of these pictures were great, and these were ones that DIDN’T make the top ten! Can’t wait to see the winners.

  6. Wow… I read the first reply and thought “ahole”, read the second and said “wow, an even bigger ahole and an idiot too”, then read the third and said “phew, finally someone who gets it” only to raealize just a second later that he was the biggest ahole of them all.

    lol… Matt, you’re doing a fine job.

  7. I guess it musta been a Monday for some of these “folks”. Looking forward to seeing the contest winners!

  8. Anyone who doesn’t like this blog is a jealous hater! There’s no other reason not to love this warmed-over crap.

    (Getting your Redskins coverage from Danny’s hand-picked blogger is like getting nutritional advice from Twinkies…)

  9. WRT comments above, hang in there Matt! – don’t “rassle with pigs” etc.

    Cheers.

  10. hey Matt tell these donkeys to go to RI if they want to read Redskins hate

  11. Matt you are doing fine.

    Remember; Anonymity = Crass Ignorance

    A sad and pitiful bunch of miscreants.

  12. HMM, HAVING A TOUGH TIME WITH THAT FIRST POST… ANNOUNCEMENT IS SPELLED CORRECTLY IN THE BLOG’S SUBJECT LINE, NOT SURE WHY silly sally COMMENTED ON IT? MAYBE SHE’S NOT SO BRIGHT?

    Matt, keep ‘er up man… one of the things I look forward to nowadays is reading your blog and getting that insight that no other outlet can provide.

    Looking forward to more behind the scenes stadium coverage, too!

  13. Actually, I should note that I did correct the typo in the subject, and I thank Silly Sally for her speed in pointing it out.

  14. You need only look at the screen names of the first 3 posters to realize that they are all a sandwich short of a picnic.

  15. I think Matt is doing a great job. Some days there isn’t all that much to talk about. He gives us a look in on the inside.
    If you don’t like it then go elsewhere.

    And it is the thing to do…to rip on bloggers in the comment part. Like Jasno over at Wash Post, people are ruthless towards him.

  16. At first glance I thought that was Shuler in the first photo. Hopefully Colt’s career plays out a little better than the last 5.

    And love Bielger’s photo of Santana making the grab – captures the essence of a Moss grab in motion. Pretty cool.

  17. Why are these idiots making stupid comments on a Redskins blog?? If you’re not a fan and have nothing better to do with your time, don’t come on this site! I love all the insight we get from these posts…thanks Matt!

  18. this blog couldnt be better where else can u see the stuff behind everything great job Terl those guys just hating cus u got got access at redskins park just keep writing and keep laughing

  19. I love it when people take time out of their schedule just to try to bring someone down. Wowza. Love the blog, love the pics.
