Redskins Kill Time By Doodling

Posted by Matt Terl on December 1, 2009 – 4:55 pm

Renaldo Wynn
‘s “Holiday Wishes Come True” event was a big success today. Wynn, along with his wife LaTanya and a huge number of his teammates, escorted local children in need through Target, providing each kid with a hundred dollars to use toward whatever they wanted for the holiday season.

Byron Westbrook was one of the players who helped out with — and enjoyed — the event. “This was a great event today,” he said, “being able to help these kids who can’t get some of these gifts all the time get some of what they did want for Christmas. And it helps the parents out as well, gets something to make their kids happy. The kids had big smiles on their face the whole day.”

Westbrook and a few of his teammates, though, did run into some downtime before the event got started, and they amused themselves by tracing their hands on the disposable tablecloth in front of them and autographing the handprint. Read more »

Sparkly Jerseys In Photographic Form

Posted by Matt Terl on December 1, 2009 – 2:30 pm

At the breast cancer awareness a few months ago, when the wives of the Redskins players were wearing the pink-numbered jerseys, head coach Jim Zorn’s wife Joy got to talking about wives wearing jerseys that had been “sparkled up,” in her words.

Phillip Daniels’ wife Leslie “has the best one that I have seen,” she told me. “Hers is something else. You have to go see her on game day; hers is very sparkly.”

Daniels wasn’t wearing her sparkly jersey that day, but I did ask her about it.

“I only wear them to certain games,” she explained, “but this year I got one that’s really, like, pimped up. I thought I’d try something different. Well, it’s bedazzled. Not actually bedazzled, but it’s got Washington crystals with the numbers all filled in, and on the sleeves. And it says Mrs. Daniels on the back, and ‘I Love’ over the 93.”

Daniels has her jerseys designed by the wife of the quarterbacks coach from Phillip’s days in Chicago. “We’re still close friends and she designs clothes,” Daniels explained, “and she hooked me up. She did one for Clinton Portis’ mom, and one for Renaldo Wynn’s wife, and all three of the them had them on last week at the game. But mine was more pimped out than theirs.”

Today, Renaldo Wynn and his wife LaTanya hosted an excellent charitable event at Target in Sterling, Virginia (more on that a little later), and I finally had the opportunity to compare and contrast his the two wives’ jerseys.

Here’s LaTanya Wynn:

Tuesday, December 1: A Redskins Mania Reminder

Posted by Matt Terl on December 1, 2009 – 8:25 am

The video is from happier times, it’s true. These people were doing their victory dances not just to celebrate winning a prize in the Redskins Mania scratcher from the Virginia Lottery, but also as part of the hope, excitement, and optimism that accompanies training camp and a fresh 0-0 record.

Much of the latter enthusiasm has understandably subsided at 3-8 (judging by the number of emails I get from people who claim to be switching to Cowboys fandom), but Redskins Mania is still going strong. All three million dollar instant-winner tickets are still out there, and ticket will be sold through the end of March.

But this Thursday night at 11:59 marks the last chance for people to enter the second-chance drawing to win season tickets for 20 years, so if you have any non-winning tickets around, be sure to enter them by Thursday night.

The closest thing we have to a second-chance drawing for the actual football season, meanwhile, won’t be taking place until late April. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of reminders for that closer to the actual date. Read more »
