What does Oktoberfest have to do with a wedding? Everything. History buff, beer aficionado and Munich Oktoberfest survivor (and my friend) Hope Flanagan laymanizes the origins of the holiday.
“For one thing, it actually mostly takes place in September despite the name.” This year’s Oktoberfest runs from September 22-October 7. Annually, millions of people descend upon Munich for Oktoberfest, making it the one of the largest festival in the world.
Oktoberfest origins were cultivated from more than drunken merriment. Before there was the celebration of beer and bratwurst, there was the celebration of love. “Back in 1810, Prince Ludwig ... Read More

The Washington Redskins headed into yesterday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperate for a win, and that’s exactly what they got. Although it wasn’t a perfect performance by any means, the Redskins pulled out a last-second, 24-22 victory over the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
Things were going very smoothly for the Redskins coming out of halftime. They led 21-6 and were dominant both offensively and defensively against the Buccaneers. But the hometown team just wouldn’t go away, and turned in several huge second-half plays to score 16 unanswered points and take a ... Read More

Yesterday’s 2012 home opener for the Washington Redskins featured several ups and downs, and even though the Redskins made a final push to tie the game at the end, the visiting Cincinnati Bengals were just too much, as the Redskins lost 38-31 to move to 1-2 on the young season.
There were several big plays by the Redskins’ offense to take away from yesterday’s game, but it was a big play by the defense that set the tone early against the Bengals (2-1). Four minutes into the game, the Bengals had the ball in the shadow ... Read More
