We Are The Redskins

Gotta figure this thing has made the blogging rounds for years, but I can verify that I personally have never seen it, and so I'll go ahead post this, asking only what happened to the days when mustachioed football players wore tight jeans and white sneakers and arm wrestled in the air, Redskins fans congregated on the Mall to sing inspirational songs by the monuments, physically handicapped people were prominently featured in team promos and Joe Theismann made loud pronouncements that were meant to sound profound but instead sounded sorta funny. Ok, what happened to the first three things, anyhow.

wow.................WOW!! and i thought the "That's the reason i'm a Bullet's Fan" video was the greatest youtube find.. (YouTube is the greatest invention since the remote control, btw)

and about 20-25 seconds in, is that former Lt Governor Michael Steele clapping his hands?

This IS the "Thanks to the 12th Man video" I referenced in the You the Man post! This was done when the Skins celebrated their 50th anniversary. Great Stuff!!!

I def had to breakout my VHS copy of the video after I watched this. The actual video is longer with more highlights and some bloopers at the end.

Jebus, Jeff Bostic had a strong moustache. How did he not get the role of George Popadopoulous on Webster?

The slow motion jumping high five at the end is clutch.

I suppose this is in response to the Bears Super Bowl Shuffle.

I am so getting one of the big wind socks for my truck!
