Morning Look: Free Redskins Food






This all happened when I was in China, and it's been chronicled repeatedly in the Redskins Insider, but golly if I didn't return to a Redskins Park media room suddenly awash in free food, from the dispenser offering complimentary M and M's and Snickers and Milky Way chocolate destruction to the mid-day lunch delivery.

Yesterday, as you can see, it was two masssive bags full of hamburgers and Baconators, plus what seemed like several dozen Frostys, which sat next to me, unconsumed, all afternoon. Tragic. And no, the Frostys didn't make any biting comments about Vinny Cerrato.

This is where I'd express concern that the press corps will be bought out by all these free calories, except I read last week's post-game commentary. Need to upgrade to The Palm, I guess. If the relationship between front office and press corps continues apace, I'd expect a bag full of burning Baconators to ignite the sky over Ashburn sometime in the next few weeks; in the meantime, expect a gradually growing press corps.

The free junk food drive, of course, was authored by new Skins PR man Zack Bolno, whose lasting legacy with the Washington Wizards is the halftime ice cream buffet, featuring several fruit toppings, chocolate and caramel sauce, fresh made waffles and about a half-dozen flavors of ice cream. You should see the line out the door at halftime.

Oh, and just in case there was any doubt that media members are quite fond of free junk food, check out this photo.

So all of those timeless Redskins McDonald's commercials were for naught?

Steinz, they are showing your vegetarian lifestyle ZERO respect. How about some salads from Wendy's? Would that be too much to ask?
