I couldn’t help but smile on Thursday when I heard that Albert Haynesworth had failed the conditioning test that he needs to pass in order to participate in training camp. You can only imagine my joy when I heard that Mr. Haynesworth failed again on Friday morning. In my opinion, it’s all just Karma for the Redskins defensive tackle.
2010 has been quite the year for Haynesworth. It all started when he decided he didn’t want to be a team player and show up for two voluntary minicamps. Apparently, he thought his absence would suddenly change the mind of defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and he would leave their defense at a 4-3 instead of the 3-4 that Haynesworth doesn’t like. Well think again. Then he had some baby mama drama with his ex-girlfriend who is apparently pregnant with his child. If things weren’t bad enough with this guy, he not only took the $21 million bonus the team gave him on April 1st, but then it looked as if he was trying to destroy the Redskins too.
So I say Ha! Haynesworth’s behavior is finally catching up to him. When he finally decides he wants to play with the Redskins, he can’t pass the test. It’s awesome. The funniest thing about Friday’s failure was that he needed to complete the first part of the test in 70 seconds or less — and he finished in 71 seconds. Just a thought, but maybe you wouldn’t be in this situation if you showed up for minicamp like the rest of your teammates? Oh well, what goes around comes around.
