Last night, we had our first annual “Draft Night” party at Brion’s Grill in Fairfax. Thanks to the good folks at Brion’s for accommodating our crowd of sports fans. Thanks also to the Redskins for donating prizes, including tickets to the opening tilt against the Dolphins.
The selection of Brandon Scherff (Iowa) was a mild surprise but fits with the new regime and its emphasis on physically dominating the line of scrimmage. That’s good news to the “old school” Redskins fans from the glory years.
Of course, the real drama last night was the Caps and their brilliant win at the buzzer against the dreaded Rangers. The Ovechkin-Backstrom-Ward line is killing it right now. They never let up all night.
We had a group of stalwarts that stayed late at the bar and went crazy for the final goal. One of the great nights in D.C. sports history.
