For all the fans down here in Richmond, Va. we have a special treat for you!
At the Science Museum of Virginia, directly behind the Bon Secours Training Center, the Washington Redskins’ three Lombardi Trophies were unveiled this morning.
Normally at Redskins Park, the three hard fought trophies will be at the museum until the last day of training camp on August 16th.
Redskins.com’s Brian Tinsman and I caught up Chief Wonder Officer Rich Conti to tell us a little bit about being the temporary home of the trophies.
Now football generally isn’t thought of in scientific terms (especially on Sundays), but football is science.
For example, linebackers wanting to get offensive lineman off-balance, and forcing them to give up their position; that’s Newton’s Second Law of Motion.
A wide receiver that’s sprinting down the field and laid out by a big hitting safety; that’s Newton’s First Law of Motion.
“Everyone has been really excited and inspired and it’s really gone extremely well,” Conti said “Even the weather is cooperating. I think the entire city and region is thrilled to have the Redskins here. We’re hopeful; we have plenty of room for a fourth trophy. If the team goes out and does great, the science museum is ready to take credit for that.”
The trophies, larger than life cutout statues of some of the players and more are free to the public.
So make sure to take a quick breather between practices with the Lombardi Trophies today.
