More To Celebrate For The Redskins

Last year, the Washington Redskins had more to celebrate in one season than any other in recent memory.

With the selection of quarterback Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris’ transformation from a blocking fullback “project” to franchise record holder and London Fletcher proving that maybe just maybe Father Time can be defeated, Redskins Nation had no shortage of memorable moments that will forever live on in franchise annals.

The season kicked off with the birth of “Griffining” and ended with a 13th homerun swing by No. 46 in front of a dejected Dallas Cowboys squad.

While both celebrations are certainly awesome, they are still relatively fresh and need some time to marinate before being dubbed one of the best celebrations in NFL history.

The Fun Bunch, on the other hand, has had plenty of time to come down from their collective high-five–still one of the greatest post-touchdown celebrations ever.

Last night on “NFL Total Access” was a countdown of the 10 greatest touchdown celebrations of all time.

Coming in at No. 9 on the list is the Fun Bunch.

I could easily give you a history lesson of the group’s reign of domination, but every Redskins fan knows their story.

Headlined by Hall of Famer Art Monk and 80 Greatest Redskin Don Warren, the group would conjugate in the end zone after touchdowns, line up and celebrate with a jumping high-five.

Nothing better.

It didn’t matter if opponents got in the way either. The diminutive Smurfs still just jumped right over them too.

Just a PSA–don’t do it at the office. It won’t have the same effect.

Do you have a favorite memory of the Fun Bunch’s playful celebration? Let us know below.
