How About Them Redskins?

Hail to the Redskins! Hail! Victory!! Braves on the warpath! Fight for all DC! Mumble mumble mumble I don’t know these words. Mumble mumble mumble pretending some more. Fight on! Fight on! Til you have won! Sons of WA-SHING-TON! RAH RAH RAH! ::Repeat::  Prior to today, this was my understanding of the Redskins fight song, the only change today is that I know it’s “Fight for old DC!”  After each of our four touchdowns they played the fight song, here’s footage of one for your cheering pleasure:

Today I went to see the Redskins vs the Eagles @home and wowee it was a good time.  In addition to it being my first regular season game ever it was also my first time tailgating – folks I’ve found a new love.  We arrived around 10am for the 1pm game and the parking lots were already nearly full and set up with tailgaters.  Rows of tents, barbecues, games, and beer – brings a tear to my eye.  And the air, smells of charcoal, grilled meat, and fall.  I wish I had a good photo of the parking lot to show you, but no photo would do it justice.  For my first tailgate we went simple with hotdogs, brats, and chips.  But I am very much inspired to go bigger and better next year.

And who doesn’t love being on TV?  Thanks to my father-in-law and his friend for hooking us up with tickets to a great game 🙂
