He spent this pas pre-season with the New England Patriots but failed to make the final roster. However, he might become a star for the XFL’s DC franchise.

at least they're upfront about the quality of their product

i don't really care about the on-field product, i just care about the beer cup snake. That was the highlight of games last time around.

You can’t stop DiNucci. You can only hope to contain him.

The onscreen graphics misspelled “Defenders” as “Defendewrs” multiple times during the first quarter. Sneaky way of fitting in a future sponsor (Dewar’s)?

Announcer know nothing about these players. Seem to have never heard of DiNucci.

Onscreen graphics have also misspelled Gregg Williams’s first name multiple times.

We may try to make the March 5 game. Based on the schedule, it may be the only one I can make.

First time I’ve ever seen fans throw lemons on the field. But it worked. Pick-six on Ben.

I turned in at halftime (and slept for more than ten hours, so I guess I needed it). Sounds like quite the second half.

Does the beer snake jeopardize anyone's safety? Do some fans complain about it? I'd think the team would embrace the beer snake as a part of the DC Defenders fans' identity and stadium experience. They're not there for high quality football.

I wonder—and this is just speculation—whether they’re concerned that people might start throwing the cups used in the beer snake. We did that at a UVA football game once—we had a soda-cup snake going when suddenly the whole thing got thrown into the air and a massive cup fight resulted with those things flying everywhere.
