The '84 Caps, in pictures
When I was writing that item about the 1984 Caps the other day--the only previous Caps group to reach 10 straight wins--it wasn't easy finding images. And yet you just knew that group had to have some tremendous mustaches.
Then Matt Terl wisely reminded me of one path I hadn't considered: camera phone photos of old media guides! Terl posted this stellar recap of the 1991 Redskins media guide, which you really ought to go peruse. And then I remembered that I had grabbed a whole bunch of old Caps and Bullets media guides out of a garbage can just before the sports section's recent move.
Sadly, the 1983-'84 guide seems to have gone missing, but happily, many of the stars from February of 1984 remained on the team by the following fall, when the media guide was published. As expected, they had some tremendous mustaches. Also, some good hair.
