Down the jersey rabbit hole we go.
“I have LeBron and am going to get Kobe and Michael Jordan,” Ovechkin said. “I also have RG3 and Chris Cooley ones.”
After a little digging through the archives in this space, I found images from 2008 and 2009 that verify at least one item in the closet of the Washington Capitals captain.

Chris Cooley squeezed in a wish for Kevin Harlan, asking one favor from the veteran NFL voice in an ESPN980 interview from Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row last week.
“All I ever wanted to do was score a touchdown in the Super Bowl. I never got it,” Cooley said. “Can I paint a picture? We’re on the 25-yard line, and I just want to hear your voice say that Cooley scores.”
Harlan, who will call his fourth straight Super Bowl for Westwood One, obliged. Click on the 10:35 mark to hear Harlan call the play that hands Washington a fantasy radio land Lombardi trophy.
This brings new meaning to fake it ’til you make it. Read more »

I have no doubts CSN Washington anchor Chick Hernandez rises in the morning and likes what he sees in the mirror.
Chick is confident man in a profession of confident men. If he didn’t like what he saw, he probably wouldn’t put it on camera. But maybe some mornings he looks at his closely cropped hair and remembers what was with a pang of nostalgia.

In nine seasons with the Redskins, tight end Chris Cooley played under Joe Gibbs, Jim Zorn and Mike Shanahan. In his first season as an analyst for ESPN 980, the Redskins Radio Network and the Redskins Broadcast Network, Cooley provided an insider’s perspective throughout the final year of the Shanahan regime. Cooley arrived at Redskins Park last Thursday with some time to kill before interviewing Gruden on-air after a press conference to introduce the 29th head coach of the franchise.
Cooley briefly met Gruden before the coach’s hectic media tour. Afterward, I sat down with Cooley for a one-on-one interview to get his early impressions of the new head coach. (The following interview has been edited and condensed).
Gabe Hiatt: What are your impressions of this move and this fit with Jay Gruden?
Chris Cooley: I’m excited because I feel like all the pieces that Bruce (Allen) wants are currently here. I’ve been a believer in Bruce since the minute he walked in the door. I think he understands people well. I think he understands players well. He knows who to bring in. My trust in that, and his relationships with everyone in the football world are so high. I think it’s an exciting time. You have everyone on the same page with Bruce, with Jay, with the scouting department now… You have a completely synched organization. That’s something we really haven’t had since I’ve been here. Read more »

Chris Cooley doesn’t buy it.
On a special edition of “Inside the Redskins” airing on NBC-4 at 10:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 4, Cooley details why he disagrees with anyone who thinks the Washington Redskins are not an attractive destination for head coaching prospects.
“I don’t know how you could imagine someone wouldn’t want to take this job,” Cooley told Larry Michael.
Take a sneak peak at the show and watch Cooley explain his stance in the video below. Tune in for a special edition of “Inside the Redskins” recapping the season and looking ahead in 2014.

Redskins Broadcast Network/ESPN 980 personality Chris Cooley didn’t take the team flight up to Philadelphia this weekend and it nearly forced him to heed the assistance of Eagles fans.
Rushing up to the Linc hours before the start of the game, Cooley entered the stadium in a blur, hurrying to get some last-minute prep in before the Redskins’ third divisional game of the season.
When he came back out of the stadium shortly after the conclusion of the game Cooley noticed his car lights were still on.
Cooley explained the situation on Monday.
