What’s a Redskins fan to do? The team is under fire for having a name that is considered politically incorrect. My family and I are longtime fans of the burgundy and gold, whether they win or lose. By the way, they won tonight.
My wife and I dressed as “confused football fans” for the Hearth Scares Ball on Friday night. We bought matching t-shirts two weeks ago when we were in the D.C. area. My wife added the word “censored” across the word “Redskins.” We accessorized with other Redskins garb that we already owned including a hat, sweatpants, wristbands, and sunglasses.
If the Redskins ever do change their name, I hope they pick a word that has two syllables and can easily be inserted into the tune of “Hail to the Redskins.” I also hope they find a word that starts with R so that I can continue wearing my Joe-Gibbs-style hat.
