It’s only Tuesday and already the local rivalry is heating up between Washington Redskins fans and Baltimore Ravens fans. After their victory against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Monday night, Skins fans celebrated like they’d just completed a perfect 16-0 regular season and swept their way through the playoffs to a Super Bowl victory.

My Facebook friends were more unbearable than they were on election day.

Redskins fan Lance Rinker, who blogs at, fired up his webcam and talked some smack about about the D.C.-Baltimore matchup in week 14.

Keep in mind that the Redskins are 6-6, second place in the NFC East. That lovely record would earn them a fourth place spot in the AFC North.

I can understand the ‘Skins fans excitement though. They have a terrible owner, a bad stadium and have been in the postseason just twice in the last 12 years. I like RGIII — he’s been fun to watch — but the Ravens are the clear favorites in this matchup.

Why can’t hockey just start so Baltimore and Washington can agree to love one team?
