Mike and John’s Tailgating Adventure

Posted by Chris Herting on January 31, 2013 – 1:52 am


Year after year Redskins fans show up in droves and provide one of the best tailgating atmospheres known to man. This season was no different.

Each week fans gathered their friends, fired up their grills and enjoyed the pregame festivities, turning the FedExField parking lots into a sea of burgundy and gold.

The scene was no different for Mike and John Stroll, two out-of-towners who partook in a marathon journey all season long to experience the ultimate tailgate.

Prior to the Redskins-Giants Monday Night game (a Redskins 17-16 victory), the brothers hit the FedExField lots looking for the perfect tailgate. And well, you all succeeded in showing them what Redskins Nation is all about: good friends, good food and good times!

Of course we already know that Redskins fans never disappoint when it comes to a good tailgate.

Anyway, be sure to check out the video which chronicles their visit in Washington beginning with a grueling workout from Pro Bowl LB Lorenzo Alexander and ending with a surprise visit from GM Bruce Allen along with some quality time with the Hogettes! Read more »

A Quarter Century After Super Bowl XXII

Posted by Chris Herting on January 31, 2013 – 1:46 am


Twenty-five years ago today (January 31, 1988) the Redskins walloped the Denver Broncos 42-10 in Super Bowl XXII to claim their second of three Super Bowl titles under head coach Joe Gibbs.

The game was played at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego on a balmy (61 °F) California afternoon.

If you are lucky enough to have any recollection of the game, the Redskins got off to a slow start. On Denver’s first play from scrimmage, quarterback John Elway threw a 56 yard touchdown pass wide receiver Ricky Nattiel to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead. Denver added a field goal and the first quarter ended with the Broncos in the lead 10-0.

However, the second quarter turned out to be a completely different story.

For the sake of time we’ll give you the quick version. If you may, a rapid fire summary of what transpired next. Read more »
