I was visiting in the Washington DC area when my nephew made a poignant statement. He said:
I’ve never seen the Redskins win a Super Bowl. They last won the year before I was born. I guess they’re waiting until I die.
My brother-in-law added to this, by saying:
The Redskins haven’t been good in so long, most of the younger generation doesn’t have that loyalty. I don’t know what’s going to happen, since they don’t know what it’s like to win.
Interesting. How long are the Redskins going to be able to keep selling out games with bad teams, bad players and worst of all, uninteresting teams? They are terrible offensively, with turnover machine Rex Grossman as their starter.
All I know is, Washington has to hold the line with Shanahan. The guy has to have a real chance to move them forward, or they are going to fall back into the abyss.
Meanwhile, I see a ton of locals flying “Cowboys” flags around, especially in PG County. No wonder that place is a mess. A real sense of community identity, huh? I want to say those are some of the stupidest people I’ve ever seen.
I think I just did.
