Redskins in masks, masquerading

By Dan Steinberg


The promotional material for the Redskins Midnight Masquerade Ball is intriguing, to use one word.

Bring in the new year with an evening of intrigue, mystery, and fantasy! The Midnight Masquerade Ball will transform The Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner into a Venetian carnival featuring world-class entertainment, luxurious silent auction items, and of course a balloon drop to bring in the New Year! Offering our guests an experience unlike any other, this New Year's Eve will truly be unforgettable.

But the promotional video -- featuring Reed Doughty, Lorenzo Alexander, Kedric Golston, Chris Wilson, Graham Gano, arts and crafts, "Eye of the Tiger" and a pro football player saying "Chicks definitely dig the mask" -- is even more intriguing, to use that same word. See below.

This stuff is all linked from Darrell Green's Web site. Naturally. I'm just hoping Donovan McNabb shows up, disguised as Rex Grossman.

They're trying to copy the Nike commercial ("Chicks dig the long ball!"). The original was MUCH better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ltD21rYWVw

Usually when a team sucks it's only their fans that wear masks. Way to hit a new low, Redskins.

That was some awesomely weird shiz. Makes me miss the old, fun Clinton Portis. He would have dominated this video
