Mother Nature graces the DMV with brisk winter breezes during the month of February, causing many to be slightly on the grouchy side at times as they wait for the flowers to bloom and for family beach vacation season to kick into gear.
Today, however, spirits among the masses seems to be a little more cheery than a usual day during the shortest month of the year. There’s been an increase in heart-shaped objects, bouquets of flowers, and people ignoring their beach-bod diets in favor of adding some chocolate to their routines.
It’s almost like there’s a feeling of love in the air.
Well folks that’s because today is Valentine’s Day, the annual day of love!
Redskins Nation has a lot to love during this holiday as we are currently under blue skies, Punxsutawney Phil ( for those of you who don’t know, Phil is the famous groundhog of Groundhog Day) saw his shadow forecasting spring is on its way, and knowing that their favorite football team shocked the league this season claiming the NFC East title may be the sweetest treat of all!
The Redskins themselves have caught the love bug and have been spending their day with loved ones.
Find out what some of the players have been doing after being struck with Cupid’s arrow here:
Brian Orakpo is a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks, terrorizing them at every move and knocking them down at every chance he gets.
While Brian is one tough man on the gridiron, believe it or not, he is quiet the gentle soul off of it. While he can corral multiple lineman en route to the pigskin, he may be facing his biggest task yet: taking on a second child with wife Tura.
Safety Jordan Bernstine is one of the most passionate players on the field for the Redskins, however, he is searching for love off of it and has taken an old school approach to see if anyone will be his.
Sidenote–If you do decided you want to be Jordan’s Valentine, he’s asking for a little something in return.
Linebacker London Fletcher has created a massive following after signing with the Redskins in 2o07. The heart and soul of the defense hasn’t missed a game in years and always shows his love for this team and city, never giving up no matter what adverse conditions stand in his way.
The loving father and husband is thankful for the support he has gotten from all of the females in Redskins Nation and has a little message for them!
Quarterback Robert Griffin III has a message for the gals and lads:
Defensive End Adam Carriker has a special message for his lovely spouse, Angie:
Running back Evan Royster stumbled across this little (chicken) nugget of love during breakfast this morning:
Finally, nose tackle Chris Baker would like to wish everyone a great day!
