It’s Game 7. Can the Indiana Pacers stun the Miami Heat, or will Lebron James and Co. bounce back from Game 6 and continue their quest for back-to-back titles?
We asked some of the Redskins players to weigh in on the NBA Eastern Conference Finals as they were leaving practice today, 34 voted for the Heat and 17 voted for the Pacers.

This week’s Social Media Spotlight is presented by social media intern Jared Ross.
As usual, we check in from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to bring you this week’s Social Media Spotlight. If you missed last week’s Spotlight, make sure to check it out to see kicker Kai Forbath’s photo of Redskins Park from his airplane window, how wide receiver Pierre Garcon anxiously awaits game day, quarterback Robert Griffin III’s return to the football field, and more.
In this week’s Social Media Spotlight, players start to settle back into football mode as they enter their third week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs).
In these past two weeks of OTAs, not only did player’s return to the football field, some returned from injury to join in for a few practice drills.
And now, we present this week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight. In this week’s edition, we review nose tackle Chris Baker’s grand predictions for the Redskins in 2013, safety Reed Doughty’s trip to Dover International Speedway, defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s poetry, kicker Kai Forbath’s visit to a USA soccer match, and a photo from defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins‘ last night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Those are three names that are currently linked to the Washington Redskins across the league as key cogs to the Burgundy and Gold claiming their first division title in 13 years.
While the trio looks to join Redskins greats Sam Huff and Chris Hanburger in the halls of Canton someday, one current Redskin will be joining them on a slightly different list. (Hint—he hasn’t even played a game yet.)

Over the next few weeks we will be looking back on some Redskins greats for their heroics on the field as well as off of it. We kickoff this week’s segment with Redskins.com intern James Ho looking back on Chip Lohmiller’s seven-year stint in our Nation’s Capital.
Looking at the Washington Redskins current 90-man roster at the onset Offseason Team Activities (OTAs), it appears that the team is satisfied with its personnel at at least one position–kicker.
As of now, Kai Forbath is the only kicker on the Redskins roster and based on his performance last season and the lack of any competition for the record-setter, it may be safe to say the coaching staff is comfortable with the kicking situation.
It has been quite a while since the team has had any sort of comfort at the position. In fact, most Redskins fans will have to think back about 20 years to the days of Chip Lohmiller to find the last time the Redskins had a franchise kicker.

Over the next week, the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders will be providing behind-the-scenes access and first-hand-accounts of their 2013 Calendar photo shoot in tropical Costa Rica.
For today’s shoot diary entry, we check in with Susan, who is entering her third year as Redskins Cheerleader. She is ready to make Redskins Nation proud again:
Hey Redskins Nation!
I’m writing to you from a scenic, beachfront hillside here in Costa Rica, and I’m excited to tell you that we’ve just finished another day of our 2013 calendar shoot.
Despite being in the midst of rainy season here, the weather held out for us through all six shoots today, and we experienced the most picturesque sunset I’ve ever witnessed.
