What Is Mike Shanahan Frowning About?

In Monday morning's edition, The Washington Post ran this beautiful photo of Mike Shanahan following the Redskins' 19-11 loss to the 49ers.

I want to either hug him or pie him in the face, I'm having trouble deciding. Anyway, this wonderful frown is brought to us by the Redskins' loss, but this face would also be acceptable under the following circumstances:

 

  • It occurred to him that the fly he just swatted probably had a fly dad
  • He brushed his hair with a block of wood and it was not everything he hoped it would be
  • Dog poop! A dog pooped on the field! Where did that come from anyway? Well, at any rate it's gross!
  • His offensive coordinator did not like his idea for a "go get' em" trick play that involved quarterback John Beck wedging the ball into his face mask and running directly forward as far as possible
  • Someone finally sat him down and told him that he is actually Ron Paul
  • He is part of an institution that places aesthetic/titular tradition above respect for a race of Americans and gee whiz, that is just not a happy feeling at all
  • He wore a jacket with a hood and it didn't even rain!
  • Not sad, just lost in thought, thinkin' about Wolverine's past
  • Dwelled upon his team's quarterback situation, wondered what Dennis Dixon was up to these days, ended up with the mental image of Dixon wearing a suspendered barrel and banging an empty paint can with a spoon for tips, made him real sad
  • Still soured by a morning conversation with owner Dan Snyder in which he was informed that they would not stock Freeze Pops in the locker room freezer because "it's cold out, it's not Freeze Pop season"
  • Wanted to hang out in the 49ers locker room after the game, found out there was a cover charge
  • Tried to eat a raw potato
