Haynesworth Passes!!

ESPNs Adam Schefter reports that Redskins defensive tackle has finally passed his conditioning test. He should now be able to practice with the team. This should come as a relief to Dan Snyder as he now does not have to go to practice and watch his $100 million dollar investment sit on the sideline.

For the third straight day Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth skipped his conditioning test because of his "sore knee". Personally, I think he tried to walk up the stairs and that's what made it sore! I am sick and tired of "Fat" Albert Haynesworth. Mike Golic, from ESPN, took the test 2 days ago on Sports Center. He passed! Mike Golic played in the NFL at least 7 years ago!! Let's face it Albert, the only way for you to escape Mike Shanahan, is to retire. So do us all a favor, either man up and take the test or retire and leave all of us Redskins fans at peace. We don't need you.

A-Rod Hit No. 600

Exactly 3 years after Alex Rodriguez hit home run number 500 of his career, he hit home run number 600. In the bottom of the first, 2 outs, 1 man on, A-Rod blasted one off pitcher Shaun Marcum into center field. A-Rod said after the game that "it was a relief just to put it behind me". A-Rods career will always have an asterisk next to it because of the accusations of steroid abuse. But for right now, I think everyone should let A-Rod have his moment. He is the youngest player ever to 600 home runs.

According to Reynolds' agent, the financial side of the deal "blew us out of the water". This won't be the last time we hear from Scottie Reynolds. After playing and maturing in Italy, Scottie will be back and better than ever in the USA.
