Win Lunch With Bruce Allen By Submitting A Fan Photo

Posted by Matt Terl on May 6, 2011 – 11:26 am

If you’re a passionate Redskins fan and can prove it photographically, you could win lunch with general manager Bruce Allen at Redskins Park, along with a host of other terrific prizes. Here’s the deal:

Go to http://Redsk.in/FanDraft to enter. Submit a fan photo demonstrating your passion and support for the Redskins, explain why you’re the biggest Redskins fan, and you could win a chance to be selected for the grand prize. Which is pretty grand, as these things go — big enough that it gets explained in its own bullet-pointed list:

  • Lunch with Bruce Allen at Redskins Park, including private facility tour
  • 2 tickets to Redskins vs. Giants on September 11, 2011, at FedExField including parking and pregame field passes
  • an autographed Redskins helmet
  • 2 VIP passes to training camp
  • $100 Redskins gift card
  • Free Redskins yearbook

All of that stuff is terrific, but it’s the lunch with Allen that puts the prize over the top. Not only is he the general manager of the Redskins — and, if my inbox is anything to go by, plenty of you would just want to get his ear because of that — but he’s also a remarkable repository of Redskins history. He remembers and can share enough first-hand stories about a remarkable variety of events, players, and coaches to make for twenty memorable lunches, let alone one.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are some photos of passionate Redskins fans through the years, culled from the Associated Press archives. I recalled some of these; others (the Redskins Uncle Sam, the terrifying Hogs) were new to me. All of them are worth looking at, and — with the exception of the last image — all would be appropriate for you to submit to the contest … if they were of you, of course. You can’t just submit other people’s pictures, especially not the AP’s. Read more »
