Living in the past is no way to go through life, but that doesn't mean the past should be forgotten.
Here are the Top 10 Grant & Danny Moments from 2019:
Steve Buckhantz confirmed on air that NBC Sports Washington was going in a different direction and said he thought Tedd Leonsis and his son, Zach, who serves as vice president and general manager for Monumental Sports, could have done more.
"From my perspective, yes, I heard officially from my boss at NBC Sports Washington last night that they were in fact, to use his words, going in a different direction," Buckhantz told 106.7 The Fan. "I like to say going in the same direction with a different person, but yeah, that seems to be the phrase when somebody is let go, that they're going in a different direction. So yeah, that is official."
"So listen, don't kid yourself," Buckhantz said. "Let me ask you a question. If somebody from our company had gone up to Ted and Zach and said, 'Listen, we're thinking about changing the hockey announcers, because I'm just not sure about them,' you don't think he would have looked them right in the face and said 'that's not happening'?
"Well, that didn't happen here, so that's unfortunate, and that's the most hurtful thing. And I have not heard from Ted or Zach at all since this has happened, or since the whole process even began, and that's also hurtful."
Max Scherzer, who appeared on Grant & Danny all season, said he had a simple goal.
"There's two goals I have. One, win the World Series. That's the reason you play this game," he said. "That's the single greatest motivator for everything you do in my life for baseball, is to win and win the World Series."
"But number two is just get better as a pitcher," Scherzer continued. "Find things in my game that I can continue to get better at, pay attention to what's going on in the league to see if there's anything that I'm missing, so that, if there's things I can do to continue to refine all my pitches, to make myself just that much better."
Grant Paulsen does not like athletes with long hair. He can't stand them. He often likes the player, but can't stand their hair.
"This is a long-running truth about me that I despise long-haired athletes," Paulsen said on 106.7 The Fan. "If the hair is super long... that (annoys) me to no end."
After Gruden was fired, Lombardi had a prediction that sounded ridiculous, but could still come true.
But the best of all, when Lombardi goes with the punter nickname.
"I can't imagine the punter from Richmond has got much of a stake in (the Reskins last two wins) at all," Lombardi said referring to Allen, who punted at the University of Richmond. "But, you know, I can't predict what Dan Snyder is gonna do because any person who is watching his organization, the one with a good culture, would have made decisions about the punter a long time ago."
"It was pretty brief," Gruden told Paulsen and Rouhier about his last day as the head coach. "I had a hunch it might go on there, but I met them early in the morning on a Monday after the game and was basically let go."
Despite how it ended, Gruden left the Washington organization with no hard feelings.
"It was a great run, I was grateful for the opportunity and unfortunately I didn't get it done. And we had to part ways. They had to go their own way and I gotta go my own way. No hard feelings, whatsoever. I think I did the best I could and ultimately at the end of the day I didn't get it done and they had to go their own way," Gruden said on 106.7 The Fan.
Sometimes you hear stories from Redskins Park that just make you scratch your head. This isn't one of those times.
This story – as relayed by Grant Paulsen – is more along the lines of, 'Oh Dear God, the Redskins really are hopeless.'
It involves Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his top lieutenant, Redskins team president Bruce Allen. It involves business meetings, commerce and office dynamics – all the components you'd expect to see from a first-rate NFL franchise.
It also involves office putt-putt.
"The story is just that (Dan) used to, at certain times, like come out of his office upset, screaming about where Bruce was because Bruce was late for tee time," Paulsen began. "So he'd be like, 'WHERE'S BRUCE?' And everyone's like, 'I don't know. What do you mean, where's Bruce?' He's like, 'He's supposed to be in here! We've got a 3 o'clock tee time!' It's like 3:06."
