No one would have thought it at halftime of game two, when the Skins were scoreless against their Dallas Cowboy rivals. Yet when Sean Taylor returned a fumble 39 yards for a touchdown to secure a victory against the Philadelphia Eagles in the waning minutes of Sunday's must-win game, it became apparent to all: the Washington Redskins were playoff-bound for the first time since 1999.

Blair Ice Hockey hopes for a strong season

By Devon Madison | Dec. 6, 2005, midnight | In Blair »

The Community Ice-Hockey league's 2005-2006 campaign has begun, and despite a slow start, Blair hopes to extend last year's success. Last year's star seniors, Neal Vasilak, Brad Gee, Nathan Barrymore and Graham Mathews, were sorely missed in Blair's 10-0 loss during the first game of the season against Churchill on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The Blazers suffered another, but less brutal loss to Paint Branch on Friday Dec. 2nd, when they were defeated 5-3. Blair's losses have proved that the team must make adjustments to their offense to make up for the absence of last year's seniors and current senior defenseman Jake Drengwitz.

Through the last few years, they have learned to adjust to a new independence from the reliance on a star player to lead the way. Last season, the fledgling basketball team had to learn how to grow up and fly through another phenomenal basketball season.

Running into the future

By Phillip Allen | Nov. 18, 2005, midnight | In Blair »

Last Saturday the Blazers missed the playoffs by just 14 points in a loss to Damascus, the number one team in the Washington, D.C., area. Despite the loss the Blazers had a tremendous year, finishing 6-4 and losing only to teams with winning records. But at one point in the season it didn't appear as if a winning record was in the cards. The Blazers came out of the gates to a dismal 1-3 record and appeared to be on course for another sub-.500 year. In the fifth game against Wheaton, starting running back Terrin Flowers-Jackson was out with an injury and the offense was again sputtering. In the third quarter of this monumental game, Coach Jeffery Seals decided to make a bold move.

That other rookie

By Josh Zipin | Nov. 2, 2005, midnight | In Professional »

Washington is not usually considered a hockey town, but one rookie phenom could bring back plenty of fans. He hasn't been labeled "the Next One" or called the future of the National Hockey League (NHL), but Alexander Ovechkin entered the NHL as the number one overall pick two years ago and with high expectations. One of this season's most intriguing subplots will be the battle between Ovechkin and his fellow rookie, 18-year old Sidney Crosby for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's Rookie of the Year.
