It’s time for you to dive into your memory banks for a moment and remember back to when Robert Griffin III wasn’t with the Washington Redskins yet. As hard as that is to do just try it.
On a memorable December night in 2011, Griffin III took the stage to accept the prestigious Heisman Trophy given annually to college football’s best player in a black suit and Superman socks?
Yes, of the overly muscular hero that is faster than a speeding bullet and possesses the superpower of flight.
Superpowers of course are fictional abilities that extend well past the norms of any human’s capabilities—well almost every human.
Let me reintroduce you to Santana Moss, owner of superpowers.
Over the past week on Redskins.com there has been a video series (Meet the Redskins) that believe it or not gives you a sneak peak of what the guys are like away from the field.
I guess it’s kinda like meeting the Redskins.
When Moss was asked what superpower he wishes he could have he said he already has one.
“If I could have any superpower it would be the power I kind of think I have now, the power to give and do anything for anybody.”
If you consider giving Redskins fans countless eye-popping touchdown catches and moving to the slot to have Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan on the outsides, then yes Santana you really do have a superpower.
Of course a good number of those touchdowns have come against the arch nemesis Dallas Cowboys. “The Cowboy Killer” himself is just like any of you when it comes to how you feel about the boys in The Lone Star State.
“The team I will always love to hate is the Cowboys.”
Now relationships can stale after years together as people grow tired of the repetitive nature of a longstanding connection, but for Moss and Redskins Nation, it just keeps on getting better.
“Every year they give me something more and more to love about them.”
I’m sure they’d enjoy a few more touchdowns and a Super Bowl trophy, too.
That’s true love.
