Redskins training camp fashion

There is coach fashion, like Bobby Turner in full sweatsuits. There is player fashion, like Larry Johnson wearing cleats that read "Truck Stick." And then there's fan fashion, which is my favorite fashion at all.

Much love to both of you who wore Albert Haynesworth jerseys to the park this week. Here's hoping you first taped yourselves doing conditioning runs in your backyard, and that the video will be up soon.

Other categories of fans:


Not to stereotype, but if you're a large white man (or boy), this will always be an acceptable option. And, by the same token, I can't remember ever seeing a non-large white man (or boy) so outfitted. This weekend, I guess.

Beloved former quarterbacks

Didn't see any Shulers this time, sadly, but I'm sure they'll appear before the season begins.


If there's a bigger fashion faux-pas than wearing a patriotic Nats jersey with Red Sox hat combination to Redskins camp, I'm having trouble imagining it. Wearing a bikini made of nothing but hops and condom wrappers to a religious function, perhaps. The Cartwright and Ervins ones were fine, just unexpected.

Grossman Bears jerseys

Two in one day. Two is a trend, right?

Perhaps the Red Sox cap is a tribute to when they were the Boston Redskins? Although no one under 90 would remember that.

No, it's your typical tard who grew up in Fairfax rooting for the Blow-Sux but now partially cares about the Nats because of Stras. He can rot in hell for all I care.

why do you think the guy's russ grimm jersey is number 63 instead of 68?

You're right about the Nats/Stras thing, but he didn't grow up rooting for the Sox. He grew up rooting for the Cowboys, Lakers, Yankees and Duke until the Sox won in '04 and then he changed his mind. If he were a chick the Sox hat would be pink

Spot on! I just Googled "Russ Grimm 63" -- apparently Reebok screwed up the number on their special throwback jersey.

That Ricky Ervins jersey was made and sold for awhile by Mitchell & Ness. That's why you'll see them pop up every now and then. It was a throwback that the Skins used in '94.

Strasburg-Bosox guy is a complete tool...

The guy in the Grimm jersey is a moron. Grimm never wore #63, he was #68.

You're a little late, J.S. Forester. That's been said about 5 or 6 times prior to you coming in here talking. Go back to slurping Jessie Spano pictures.
