Jason Campbell Passes Out Turkeys
Special Bogging Correspondent and WaPo colleague Hamil Harris reports:
Washington Redskin Quarterback Jason Campbell got a little more than a handshake and thank you at FedEx Field Tuesday, when the Redskins passed out more than 3,000 turkeys, plus food and toys to several thousand residents from across the region.
Even though Campbell was flanked by team owner Daniel Snyder, Rock Cartright and other husky players, 79-year-old Mary Robinson wasn't intimidated as she grabbed Campbell's hand as if he were a grandbaby.
"I told him that God will make a way for him, and I also told him to stop being so nervous and take us to the Super bowl," Robinson said.
Campbell was speechless as Robinson left with her bag of food. He later said, "We are all thankful to be in the position that we are in, and it is good to come out here and give something back."
While Redskins owner Daniel Snyder doesn't give too many interviews, he said as he passed the turkeys, "This is a wonderful thing. We will do this every year."
