Today marks the 29th anniversary of the Redskins victory over the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII, a rematch of Super Bowl VII a decade before.

This was the first of three Super Bowl titles for the franchise, and the start of a magical ride with head coach Joe Gibbs at the helm.  It was also the rise of ‘Riggo’ and ‘The Hogs’ in the D.C. vernacular, making champions of three teams and legends of men.

Is that the face of someone playing a meaningless exhibition game?

Despite everything that differentiates the Pro Bowl from true NFL football, there was a distinctly familiar feeling about last night’s ceremonial contest.

The temperature (80 degrees), location (Honolulu, Hawaii), jerseys, fans and protocol may have been very different, but Redskins No. 59 was the same constant force that he’s been for the last 15 years.

This was London Fletcher’s “game face” getting off the bus, via his Twitter account (@LFletcher59): Read more »
