Gene Washington Dining With The President And The Queen
DINING WITH THE PRESIDENT AND THE QUEEN ‘ GENE’S LITTLE SECRET ‘
” IT’S TRUE LIZZY WE INVITED A BLACK MAN ”
Sound the Alert
in The White House
in The White House
Don’t worry America
it was not Barack just
But what a Pass Through. The Ultimate Social Event of the entire Sorry Bush Presidency. It’s all down hill for W from here. Just as it’s been all Down Hill for the rest of us since the day he stole the Presidency in Florida so long ago.
Back at The White House they pulled out ALL the stops for Queen Elizabeth II. No tax dollars left unspent showing Lizzy Royal a Good Time. Let’s hope they got lots of pretty pictures for the U.S. soldiers in “fox holes” in Iraq. Especially since the Queen is fond of the Fox Hunt back in Jolly Old England.
Sorry back to The White House. And don’t be concerned we have not forgotten about Gene Washington, NFL Vice President for Football Operations ( meaning he’ll never be Commissioner ). We’ll tell you more about Washington and his date in a moment. but since you will never get invited to a White House Black Tie Banquet even if Hillary or Barack or even Rev. Al gets elected we here in the Box are inviting you as Visceral Guests or CyberGuests as you prefer.
So we need to give you the menu
needless to say you want to enjoy

( eat and drink as much as you like here in the Box )
OK now to the Meat of this story not on the Menu. Why was a Black NFL executive invited to be among the almost all White 133 guests in attendance with the most sought after ticket in all of DC. When even Gene’s Boss the Commissioner himself Charles Goodell absolutely was not..
Was it because his name is WASHINGTON and George thought it would be funny to introduce the Queen to someone named WASHINGTON in WASHINGTON. Good guess. But NO.
The fact is – Gene’s dirty little secret is – he was NOT invited at all. Washington never got a valuable collector’s item Gold Leaf Presidential invitation. Gene Washington only got to put on his White Tie and Tails because he was the guest of another individual who really got an Invitation. The Administration’s own Queen of Darkness Herself yes Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
And in fact Condi probably would not have invited Gene since she has the pick especially being Powerful & Single of Rich Black or White Washington (the city) were it not for the fact a few White NFL football players were Invited Guests. Two White Quarterbacks SuperBowl Champion Peyton Manning and New Jersey Giants’ loser back up Quarterback Tim Hasselbeck.
Now Gene Washington being in the midst of this group of All Powerful Washington ( the city ) Insiders could have been like being in the World’s Greatest Candy Store. Theoretically in one evening Washington could have exchanged cards ( discreetly ) and comments ( even more discreetly ) about the plight of African Americans in American Sports ……
…….. that could have resonated far and wide. Not because any of these Rich White Dudes would have agreed with his assessments or even cared to listen to him but because of ALL the attention in the media the subject would have gotten once the word leaked out as it would have in buckets.
Of course Gene Washington did no such thing. Rather he curtsied to the Queen of the Public Dole, probably told a joke to the Prez who with his short attention span responds to little else, and Gene enjoyed the luscious food
Whether or not
Washington and Rice
got it on afterwards
we don’t have a Clue
whether or not she
does as well in
private as she does it
to the entire country
right out in Public
so comes to a Close
our non-sports story
about Sports in Washington
some Diversion from the Madness
