It's no coincidence that less then 30 minutes after Trump finished his speech that when I went outside for a smoke and heard something I haven't heard since 9/11.
The pulsating throbbing of the massive diesels of a big train pulling freight south to head thru Washington D.C. I can not remember how far away the tracks are from my house; but, trust me...they are miles away.
This train was being driven by an operator who knows how to make his presence known. The kind of engineer you want at the controls of a massive freight train heading into snow bound Rockies so he causes an avalanche before the train is in danger.
Maybe I'll look it up on a map later, maybe I will not.
The fact remains, while having a smoke I could hear it's engines many miles away.
And then, after my watch hit 1pm...the trains air horn began to sound.
I.K., curiosity got better of me. Apx., 5 miles. Considering that only thing between me and tracks is Patuxent wildlife area south of aft. Meade. No surprise the sound carried. After all...I can lie awake at night in the summer and listen to the beautiful sounds of the race track at night. Those sounds used to put me to sleep at night dreaming about things we'd see in American Graffiti.
cooley47: Goff continues to stink. The D has done their job.

rskin72: The Lambs O just cannot get into sync. Limited rush attack, and Goff is not in any rhythm at all
Feb 3, 2019 20:47:23 GMT -5
rskin72: sooner or later the Lambs D will give...or they will make a big play. Either way the Lambs D right now has to win the game for the team

cooley47: No guarantee you ever get back to this game. Sorry but Goff can’t get it done. McVay should consider getting a veteran QB in offseason.

rskin72: Wow....238 vs 80 yards of offense....
Feb 3, 2019 20:52:17 GMT -5
cooley47: And yet only down 3!
Feb 3, 2019 20:53:16 GMT -5
rskin72: Gotta be something different that will break a big play. Maybe special teams...
Feb 3, 2019 20:56:07 GMT -5
rskin72: Going quicker now
Feb 3, 2019 20:58:49 GMT -5
rskin72: maybe getting some confidence

kaiser: bs holding call...

cooley47: I thought it was a late hit in Goff
Feb 3, 2019 21:31:22 GMT -5
cooley47: Steratore is a Pats guy so he thinks good call
Feb 3, 2019 21:31:48 GMT -5
cooley47: Horrible throw
Feb 3, 2019 21:41:52 GMT -5
kaiser: well he goffed that up!

SkinsTim: A first round pick for a guy that was terrible last year and his team is ready to move on from? No chance. They'll be luck to get a 2nd or a 3rd. I'd give up a 2nd for him and call it a day.
