Alexander Seese sent me a few emails saying how depressing it was checking RI and seeing the story about the guily plea by one of those accused in Sean Taylor's murder. He asked if I could put something, anything, else up, so I aim to please.
Alexander sent along some thoughts about RFK, and how to close that place out the right way should DC United one day move to new digs. I'll let him take it from here other than to say that I'll be on Wash Post Live on Comcast from 5-6 (first time back there in like three weeks; hope I don't choke) and we'll be doing some Redskins segments so feel free to email any questions or suggestions.
Okay, here's Alexander's thoughts:
A random thought on RFK stadium.
As we all know the Nationals play in their new stadium, the DC united are looking to move when their lease runs out in, it seems only a matter of time until RFK is left empty.
We hear talks of the city wanting to get the Redskins back, and rebuilding on the site, or talks of new housing development in its place. Its not a question of if but a question of when.
But before the wrecking ball comes, the metal overhang falls down and the bust of Robert F Kennedy is removed. I hope that they play one more game at the old stadium.
I will be honest its not entirely my idea, but rather one I have taken from a recent event in the old Orange Bowl in Miami. Which is being torn down. They had a final game in that stadium of Dolphin and U greats playing flag football.
And I thought to my self they should do something like that at RFK. So how bout it? See a bunch of former Skins play at the house that joe built for a fun old time? Seeing Doug Williams throw one more to Art as 28 covers? Sounds appealing no?
