Morning Look: Now Here's a True Skins Fan
But what happens in Boston and Pittsburgh is good enough for D.C., and clearly, this was a trend that Skins fans would not miss. And so meet Army Sgt. Kevin Brown, who survived his tour in Iraq only to be cut off while riding his motorcycle in the U.S., falling more than 100 feet off an overpass and losing his leg.
He was told his prosthetic could be emblazoned with any image "as long as it's on a fabric or some type of material," he told me this week. "I'm a hardcore, dedicated Redskins fan," he continued, "so it just popped up in my head, and I said, 'I'm gonna get mine done with a Redskins theme on it.' I show it to all my fellow other Redskins fans."
In fact, when I met Kevin, he was showing it to Redskins linebacker Khary Campbell at training camp this week. (He was in Ashburn with the Wounded Warriors program from Walter Reed.) Khary, who perhaps doesn't read as many sports blogs as he should, seemed fairly taken aback by the leg. As was I, to be honest, because it's awfully striking in person.
