Yes, There Will Be A Sammy Baugh Tribute Sunday

Posted by Matt Terl on December 19, 2008 – 4:42 pm


I haven’t yet been able to find out the specifics, but there will definitely be some sort of tribute to the late Sammy Baugh at this week’s game. I had hoped to have more details before posting about this, but the number of emails became overwhelming enough that this was the quickest way to answer the basic question. If and when I hear more, I’ll let you know.

Posted by Matt Terl on December 19, 2008 – 8:14 am

Well, the same guy who made the frighteningly accurate YouTube clip about what it’s like being a Skins fan in December is back with what it was like being a Skins fan last Sunday. (The guy in question is Danny Rouhier, and you can find out more about him at his website. This video contains some very, very mild language if you’re very easily offended, as well as another terrific ’80s soundtrack.)

An amusing diversion to start off a dreary, rainy Friday.

Hat tip to the DC Sports Bog, which had it posted first.
