The news that the Dallas Cowboys have teamed up with Marvel Entertainment for a line of co-branded merchandise has accomplished a few things.

  1. 1) Prompted Deadspin to generate one of the six greatest headlines in recent memory: Cowboys Partner With Marvel Entertainment, Nation’s Superheroes Become Unreliable Choke Artists

A Tour Of A Remarkable Redskins Room

Posted by Matt Terl on July 6, 2011 – 9:49 am

Old but new to me, via BurgundyBlog and Mister Irrelevant: Just when you think you’ve seen The Ultimate Redskins Fan Room, something just a little bit ultimater comes along. This iteration of The Ultimate Redskins Room belongs to the mysterious figure known only as SuperSkin. Since we don’t actually how he accesses the staircase, I’m assuming it’s behind a bookshelf that’s opened by pulling on the 2004 Redskins Media Guide, straight up Batman ’66 style. (If I’m wrong, please don’t disabuse me of this notion. Thank you.)

A few things of note here:

  • This is the rare Redskins room tour that requires three separate soundtrack songs to convey the various moods of the room. Impressive.
  • I like to believe that the TV plays Redskins-related footage only, at all times.
  • I am saddened that Redskins.com wasn’t prominently displayed on the computer screen, although the custom wallpaper is quite nice.
