The summer solstice occurs today at 1:16 p.m. EDT. According to WaPo’s excellent Capital Weather Gang blog, that “marks the time at which the sun’s rays are at zenith (directly overhead) at 23.5 degrees north latitude, better known as the Tropic of Cancer.” Or, also according to CWG but much less technical-sounding, today “has the longest daylight period and shortest night of the year, and the noontime sun angle reaches its maximum height.”
You might not think there is any possible tie between the Redskins and the solstice, but you would be A) very wrong, and B) severely underestimating the things that wind up on the internet.
So here, in honor of the longest day of the year, are some pictures of a Pontiac Solstice with a Redskins WindRestrictor and third brake light decal. Sure, it’s a Solstice, not the solstice, but I’m not choosy. These pictures come from a 2007 post on TheWarpath.net by a gentleman named BillyHarless; hopefully the car has only gotten even more awesome in the intervening four years.
And here, just in case that wasn’t good and/or ridiculous enough, is a Washington Redskins horizontal pouch case for a Samsung Solstice.
Happy longest day of the year, everyone.
