McIntosh’s Kindergarten Workbook, Dinner

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 14, 2012 – 3:21 pm

[Editor’s Note: Last week, Rocky had a big week visiting the brave men and women serving overseas in Kuwait.  Now he’s back in the DMV looking to support the next generation with workbooks and a dinner, and such.]

On January 10, Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh launched his own nonprofit organization, called A GRAN Foundation, targeted at empowering youth to success by giving them the necessary guidance.

Happy Valentine’s Day From The Redskins

Good morning Redskins Nation, and welcome to one of the biggest corporate holidays most romantic days of the year: Happy Valentine’s Day!

In a month tragically devoid of Redskins football, it’s a good opportunity to pay attention to the spouse that you neglected during football season–husband or wife.  Even though Americans are expected to spend $17.6 billion this Feb. 14 ($126.03 per person), just remember that your time and effort are most important.

And shiny things that fit on fingers, wrists and necks never hurt.

Here are a few Valentine’s-themed tweets and love-life advice from Redskins players with the most “heart”: Read more »
