I am a Washington Redskins fan, same as you. I attended Redskins Training Camp as a member of the press on Friday, July 31, 2015. Here is my diary from that day. I was born five days after the Redskins won their first Super Bowl. Until I was about ten years-old, I thought that trips to the Super Bowl every few years were all but a guarantee. By the time the Redskins left RFK for FedEx Field I became aware of the harsh reality that nothing gold can stay. No time to think about that now, it’s time to go to training camp. So when I arrived at camp 45 minutes before practice to pick up my press pass, and was greeted by an empty table, I was not surprised. This was the Redskins after all. – Still waiting for a press pass that was supposed to be available 40 minutes prior. At this moment, I suspected that the theme of the entire day would be the Redskins bungling simple things, validating all of my lowered expectations. – I notice that the Redskins Team Store is running like a.
The golden arms on the clock high on the Royal and Ancient clubhouse wall, right behind the 1st tee, were making their silent, inexorable drop in the direction of half past the hour. Jordan Spieth—21-year-old golf professional and sui generis personality, for his extreme maturity, intelligence and golfing skill—was on the green up ahead. What would the rest of the afternoon on the Old Course bring. Would Spieth become the second man in the history of the game to win the Masters, the U. S. Open and the British Open in the same year, joining Ben Hogan, who achieved the triple in 1953. That, of course, was not the question Spieth was asking... He was making lightning-fast computations that defy language about how hard to hit his opening 15-foot birdie putt, through a water stain that looked like the ring left by a leaky tea cup on a pinewood table. If it dropped, he would be tied for the lead with his playing partner, Jason Day, as well as the two smallish men standing about 360 yards away, almost under that grand clock. Paul Dunne, a 22-year-old Dubliner and recent Alabama-Birmingham graduate, was on the 1st tee, seeking to become the first amateur to win the British Open since Bobby Jones in 1930. Jones did it wearing wool knickers, a baggy sweater and a tie. The two youths share basic characteristics—look-elsewhere duds, tannish hair and tannish skin, heavy thighs and open, trusting faces. Dunne was asked last week if he was ever mistaken for Spieth.
In Skyhill, you play a dazed and somewhat confused hotel guest who's decided to treat himself to a state of the art hotel suite, complete with a bio defense system to stave off what once can only assume are now a well know threat. As you settle in for the night, alarms start blaring and your comfortable hotel room turns into what will now be your tomb if you don't do something about it and fast. As a guest on the 100th floor of the building, you have to make your way down all the floors to escape, fighting against all the odds to survive. Sounds fun, doesn't it. But don't worry, you don't have to make this journey without any tools at your disposal. As you travel, you can search the stairwell of each floor, along with the two rooms on each floor for items, weapons and food which you can use to help you survive. And items, because who knows when you'll need a wire to repair a broken elevator shaft to help you move further down the hotel. Skyhill also features a combat system where you face against and have to fight several different type of mutants in order to survive. Sometimes you can run, but of course by doing so, you give them the opportunity to get a cheap shot in, which just injures you and you may or may not have a healing item in your backpack to help you out. Don't worry about not getting a shot.
