SATURDAY

Deion Sanders? Are you kidding me? What was Daniel Snyder thinking? Isn’t that tiny little bastard supposed to be a fan as well as an owner? Doesn’t he know that once you’re a no-good Dallas Cowboy, you’re forever a no-good Dallas Cowboy? That suiting up for Big D is like a voodoo curse or a naked-lady tattoo or that beefy stench that won’t leave your car? That you just can’t wash that crap off with soap, water, and $56 million? What happened to good old-fashioned hatred for your opponent? Used to be that something like the Cowboys Hoopsters vs. Redskin All-Stars Basketball Benefit Game would be an all-out grudge match. Now, when Redskins studs Champ Bailey and Michael Westbrook take to the b-ball court tonight against current Cowboys Joey Galloway and Leon Lett, all we can do is pray they don’t pat each other’s asses too much. Learn to hate again at 7:30 p.m. at American University’s Bender Arena, 4400 Massachusetts Ave. NW. $15-$35 (partial proceeds benefit the Child Welfare League of America). (202) 432-7328. (Sean Daly)
