These days, the “face” of Washington DC is a young upstart with sky- high expectations. But are we talking about Barack Obama or Robert Griffin III? Hell, even we don’t know. Things didn’t wrap up until 2 AM on Tuesday. We’re tired. Give us a break.
Tale of the tape
Barack Obama Vs. Robert Griffin III
|Since the Redskins lost last week, Obama was supposed to lose the popular vote (if you believe in that kind of voodoo).||Expectations||Was supposed to be a wide receiver. Or a smile model. Seriously! Best smile in the NFL, you guys!|
|B.O. ...oh.||Initials||Cool sounding nickname. Almost like a robot. "RG3." Neat!|
|Ran on a "Forward!" strategy.||Plan||Strategy: move forward by running. Also: passing.|
|A little less now than in week one, but…sure.||Gives Hope?||A little less now than in week one, but…sure.|
|“By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward.” – Acceptance Speech, November 7, 2012||Remarkable Quote About Work||“This moment right here, it's unbelievably believable. It's unbelievable because in the moment, we're all amazed when great things happen. It's believable because great things only happen with hard work.” – Heisman Trophy Acceptance Speech|
|Probably getting yelled at by someone. Also, preparing for his 2nd term.||January Plans||Could be in the playoffs. But most likely preparing for his 2nd term.|
|Yes!||Friends With Jay-Z & Bruce Springsteen?||Nah.|
|HA!||Will Win Super Bowl In 4 Years?||...er...maybe?|
The winner is

Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol
With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.
Tale Of The Tape: World Cup Vs. Olympics
There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do.

With the World Cup still going strong and the Olympics fresh in the minds of fans across the globe, let’s see how they match up when placed side-by-side.
