Debating The Ethics Of Talking Trash With The Troops

Posted by Matt Terl on June 9, 2010 – 4:20 pm

Last night, as Stephen Strasburg started his Washington Nationals career, four members of the Redskins managed to push him off the big screen at the ESPN Zone in D.C. Not through any athletic prowess, though, unless you’re one of those people who violently argues that video games are an athletic skill: Jeremy Jarmon, Chad Rinehart, Anthony Armstrong, and Graham Gano were playing Guitar Hero against troops stationed in Bahgdad, and alongside wounded warriors and active troops in the D.C. area.

(Strasburg did make it to the big screen eventually, where he dazzled the crowd and the assembled group of Redskins players.)

“This kind of thing is very important,” Armstrong told me. “I’ve got a friend that’s about to go on a tour in the Navy, got another friend — one of my best friends — that’s in the Army. My dad was in the military. So being able to give back and show my appreciation is always important to me. I just like to be able to get out there and at least show the people, Hey, we appreciate everything you do.”

Showing appreciation through Guitar Hero is the brainchild of Addie and Greg Zinone’s Pro Vs. G.I. Joe program; I spoke to the couple about the thinking behind this kind of thing when the Redskins participated in last November, but Armstrong brought a new wrinkle to the proceedings: talking trash to armed men nearly 7,000 miles away.

Revamped Redskins Hall Of Fame Store Is Open For Business

Posted by Matt Terl on June 9, 2010 – 11:07 am

Last time I visited the Redskins Hall of Fame store at FedExField, work was still in progress. Mannequins were in various states of undress, clothing was still boxed up, and customers were still a future concern. That’s no longer the case, as the FedExField store — as well as the Redskins Stores in Dulles Town Center and Tyson’s Corner — is through the remodeling, re-thinking, and general enhancing, and is now in the business of doing business.

General manager Bruce Allen (pictured above with Bruce Lynch, chief merchandise officer of MainGate, Inc., the new folks in charge of the retail operations) was checking out the new space last night when we came across a shirt that featured a subject dear to Allen’s heart: Read more »
