Tight End Tights Wednesday

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 14, 2011 – 3:20 pm

We can now expect “Tight End Tights Wednesday” to be a weekly occurrence at practice throughout the season.

Chris Cooley initiated the idea, and Logan Paulsen pitched his idea for “No F-Ups Wedneday.”  Essentially, perfect Wednesdays will now be accompanied by the perfect choice of clothing.

When asked how macho tights are on the gridiron, Cooley replied, “It takes a real man to wear tights.”

Fred Davis added, “Peter Pan wore tights.”

Yes he did, and we all know that Peter Pan is a model of masculinity.

Cooley reported the he would like for the rest of the Redskins offense, and eventually the team, to join in the trend.

Sadly, Mike Sellers refused to join the trend, despite auditioning throughout the preseason as a member of the tight end crew.  When asked why he bucked the latest Redskins fashion statement, he said, “I’m not a tight end.”

He’ll come around soon enough.

    As much of a fan of Cooley as I am, there’s only one pair of legs in that picture that gets my attention!
