Redskins License Plates Get More Creative
The slightly profane Redskins-themed Virginia license plates shown in this space last week were creative, but, apparently, hardly unique. Apparently, a whole generation of Redskins fans grew up watching some R-rated version of Bumper Stumpers, and has responded accordingly.
Please continue to send images of your Redskins-themed license plates to this address.
And we start as we finished last week: seeing how many NFL-themed phrases can be improved via use of the letter F. Here, "Romo" and "Danny" are joined by "Phily." This one's from Charles McCormick.
And in truth, the letter F isn't necessary when discussing the Eagles. Not at all. Witness the plate of Travis Rechenbach, whose feelings about Philadelphia have made him a road-side attraction.
"I get tons of laughs when I drive by people with this," he wrote me. "It's almost like I'm a celebrity on the road because of all the flash bulbs when I'm driving. People pull up behind me and snap shots of this all the time."
(Eagles fans, it should be noted, have figured out ways to use the Redskins license plate against greater D.C.; for more, read last year's item on the Player Hater's Ball.)
Then there are the political statements, like this one, below, from
Len Pasquarelli Shira Goodfellow.. The problem is, events can overtake such political statements, as in this case. So now? Regrets?
"Had we only know within six months of getting the plate, Monk would be voted in....we would have gotten it YEARS ago," Shira wrote to me.
Luckily, Shira has friends in outdated political campaigning, including
Peter King Jason Long.
"I originally had your basic Redskins plate randomly generated by Virginia's DMV," he wrote me, "but then I saw Shira's plate, and it convinced me to change mine (that, and I was sick of people asking me 'What's 1355RD mean?'). As Shira said, had we known what powers our license plates had, we would have done this years ago."
From political passion to emotional attachment, as in this one from Nikki Hill. "Remembering my favorite player, Sean Taylor," she wrote me.
