(Photos by John McDonnell - TWP) Top five moments from Russ Grimm's induction into the Hall of Fame, on the loveliest Ohio night for an induction ceremony you'd ever want to see. 5. Ode to Beathard Joe Gibbs was interviewed inside the stadium just before Grimm's turn in the...

Michael Irvin on the Hogs and Russ Grimm

Michael Irvin and Russ Grimm overlapped in the NFL just for a few seasons, at the end of Grimm's career and the beginning of Irvin's. It was enough. "I remember all of those years, watching, hearing about The Hogs," Irvin said, growling out the name. " And that picture of...

When Bubba Tyer set Russ Grimm's clothes on fire

Here's a truth about locker room whimsy, including nicknames, costumes, funny facial hair and pranks involving fire: if a team is losing, fans think these things are immature and silly distractions. If a team is winning, fans think they're bloody hilarious. With the Gibbs Redskins, fans couldn't get enough....

The Hogettes in Canton

For Redskins fans, Russ Grimm's induction into the Hall of Fame is an excuse to break out the 1980s nostalgia. Thus, there are John Riggins jerseys and Hogs tchotchkes and Grimm t-shirts all over Canton. There are also eight grown men dressed in dresses and pig snouts. "It's a...

Russ Grimm and the origins of "The Hogs"

Every time I hear a 1980s-vintage Redskin describe the origins of "The Hogs," the story goes a little bit differently. The original Washington Post explanation of the nickname, written in 1982, said Bugel coined the name during the 1981 season, quoting him like so: "They are short guys with...

Minor league team schedules Haynesworth conditioning night

Riggins calls Haynesworth "an infection"

Here's something weird: for all the many dozens of Albert Haynesworth posts I've published, I can't think of a single one featuring John Riggins's opinion of 92. Riggins has always been something of an iconoclast, and isn't exactly sympathetic to Redskins management much of the time, so I wouldn't...

Snyder takes responsibility for Zorn hiring

When the Redskins hired Jim Zorn, Daniel Snyder described him as "the right guy." Evidently not; two years later, Zorn was fired, after one of the most embarrassing seasons in franchise history.
