victory Monday
 n.— «The players call them “Victory Mondays.” Holmgren refers to them as “cookies.” By any name, getting the day off after a game is a good thing. Holmgren gave the players Monday off—in addition to their usual Tuesday off—because he was pleased with their effort in Sunday’s 42-30 victory.» —“Seahawks Notebook: Gray expected to play vs. Bears” by Clare Farnsworth in Kirkland Post-Intelligencer (Seattle, Washington) Sept. 26, 2006.
