Hail Storm

Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - welcome sign Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Superskin The Washington Redskins open their preseason tonight at 7:30 against the Buffalo Bills. The fans in my house plan to watch live on NFL Network. Last weekend, my son and I delayed our departure to attend Fan Appreciation Day.

Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Gary Clark Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Steve Beuerlein in the background, behind the Empire Man Gary Clark, one of my wife’s college classmates, was signing autographs in the Virginia Lottery booth. Another man standing near the tent was asked for his autograph too. I heard him say, “but I didn’t play for the Redskins.” It didn’t matter. They somehow recognized Steve Beuerlein as a former NFL player. You can partially see him behind the Empire Man mascot.

Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - marching band Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Lombardi trophies It was great to hear the marching band play “Hail to the Redskins” and to see the Vince Lombardi trophies that I hadn’t seen since the last time I ate at Duke Ziebert’s.

Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Donovan McNabb Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Donovan McNabb & Chris Cooley My kids worked their way through the crowd to get some pictures of their favorite player, Chris Cooley. Rooting for Donovan McNabb will take some getting used to after all the years he spent leading the dreaded Eagles.

Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - Jason Campbell jerseys on sale Redskins Fan Appreciation Day - man with Albert Haynesworth jersey With McNabb all the rage, the obsolete Jason Campbell jerseys are now on the clearance rack. We only saw one guy wearing an Albert Haynesworth jersey.

    They let YOU get that close to the trophies? If it had a place for a hook you could put it on your Christmas tree, some ornament.
