LaRon Landry at the barbershop
When LaRon Landry first brought his new celebration to Redskins Park -- a celebration he learned at the Like That barbershop on Good Hope Road in Southeast -- I called up the shop for some guidance.
"We've got this celebration we do here, we kick the feet, slap the heads, all that stuff," James Spencer, an assistant manager, told me. "This barbershop here, we've got all different type of personalities."
"It's nasty, huh?" Landry said proudly, while declining to offer a how-to.
Well, NBC Washington's Dan Hellie caught this handshake on film, from on-location at the barbershop itself. As you can see above (or in the video below), this handshake does indeed involve head slaps. I'm totally shaking Kornheiser's hand like that next time I see him.
Hellie also got Landry to open up a bit about his 2009 season, which had people calling him a bust.
"You feel it," Landry said, via the Skins Blog. "You know, you feel it and you gotta know how to digest it. Some of the things they say is right. Last year sometimes I always did go for the big hit. Sometimes I was poorly in coverage. So I worked on those things."
Anyhow, the vast majority of Redskins players do not venture to Good Hope Road to get their hair done. Landry's putting the Washington back in Washington Redskins, one head slap at a time.
