This video turned up on YouTube recently, and it really is transcendent. It’s also remarkable, because somewhere underneath the circa-1986 outfits, the awkward dance moves, the dated synthesizer sound and canned beats, and Jay Schroeder looking like he’d really rather be anywhere else on Earth (at the 5:01 mark), this is a really nice message from a team to its fans. Also, Willard Scott shows up, and Darrell Green sports a horrible sweater.
After the jump, some then-current songs redone with Redskins lyrics and highlights, for the late George Michael’s NBC-4 sports segment.
(UPDATE: Looks like Steinberg had dug up this video a couple of years ago. I Googled to check, but missed it somehow. Since he forgot also, I don’t feel quite as bad.)
YouTube is amazing.
