Redskin’s fans are the best fans in the NFL. Fact.
We know it’s true. You all know it’s true. And even if they’re afraid to admit it, fans of other teams know that it’s true. The fact is that the Redskins are a global brand and you fans are the driving force behind this historic franchise.
The emergence of QB Robert Griffin III this year only amplified the following. Oddly enough, Griffin III turned Cowboys fans into Redskins fans or at the least made them take notice. His play, and the team’s play, was electrifying so much that you couldn’t help but appreciate his talent. He showed them the light bringing rival fans over from the darkside.
That’s why we felt the need to share with you John and Sarah’s journey to Cape Town, South Africa.
The husband and wife traveled across the Atlantic for a five week hiatus to take part in volunteer work on a construction project.
“The building construction project was in one of the poor townships. We were helping to build a nursery school, day care center and shelter for women. During breaks in the construction work, we played frequently with the kids (ages 1 – 6). We brought several Robert Griffin III jerseys, an Orakpo jersey, and some other Redskins gear for the kids. During our last week there, we taught them to sing ‘Hail to the Redskins’,” said John Turosak.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the video of their rendition but if you check out their blog you can watch the video in its entirety and read more about John and Sarah’s journey.
So to that, we say Hail to the Redskins heard around the World thanks to John and Sarah Turosak!
And if that wasn’t enough, fans are even donning the burgundy and gold down in Aruba!
Send us your burgundy and gold pics to @Redskins on Twitter.
