One of the biggest sports stories of the year just hit before the close of 2013. On Monday morning the Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder fired head Coach Mike Shanahan. The Burgundy and Gold's loss to the NY Giants Sunday night was the final nail in the coffin of an unproductive year. The season went from bad to worst with the late season benching of star player Robert Griffin, III resulting in a 3-13 record, the second worst in the National Football League. RGIII continued to have problems with a knee injury he sustained in the previous season. Snyder says," Redskins fans deserve a better result."

Prior to his 4 seasons in the DC area, Shanahan led the Denver Broncos to two Superbowl victories.  He had one more season left in a five year contract estimated to be worth $ 7 million per season according to the Washington Post. Many saw the ouster coming.   The Post also reported the next next head coach will be the eighth coach Snyder has hired since he bought the team in 1999.

Some members of Shanahan's staff will also lose their jobs.
In a statement Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen said they will carefully consider all their past decisions closely while in pursuit of a replacement.“We are going to take a smart, step-by-step approach to finding the right coach to return the Redskins to where we believe we should be. We will analyze accurately and honestly all of the decisions that were made over the past year.”

The President and First Lady Wish Everyone a Happy Holiday Season

In a weekly address, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama wished everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  They also thanked our brave troops and their families for their service and sacrifice, and reminded everyone to visit JoiningForces.gov to find ways to give back to our military families this year.  Both the President and First Lady said that during this holiday season, we should all come together to find ways to support our communities, continue caring for each other and keep working to be the best parents, children, friends, neighbors, and citizens we can be.  

President Obama Said, "For many of our troops and newest veterans, this might be the first time in years that they’ve been with their families on Christmas.  In fact, with the Iraq war over and the transition in Afghanistan, fewer of our men and women in uniform are deployed in harm’s way than at any time in the last decade."

Statement from the President and the First Lady on Kwanzaa

"Michelle and I extend our best wishes to all those celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season. Today marks the beginning of the week-long celebration of African American culture through family activities and community festivities that bring attention to Kwanzaa's seven principles of unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Though each principle represents the essence of this holiday, they also represent the shared values that bind us as Americans.

As families and communities across our country come together today to light the Kinara, our family sends our hopes for a prosperous and healthy new year."
