Three weeks in and the city of Richmond still can’t get enough of the Redskins. The players have admitted that their passion has really motivated them through the
dog cooler days of summer.
Not only have they packed the Bon Secours Training Center time and time again, but their loyalty has taken West Broad Street and beyond by storm as local businesses and restaurants have welcomed the team through tasty sandwiches named after them and signs telling them to enjoy the stay.
Just a short drive down West Broad at The Westin, the Redskins held their third and final Redskins Rally of training camp 2013 last night.
While Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins, and Redskins cheerleaders were there to give away tickets and signed merchandise as always, 80 Greatest Redskin Ken Harvey was also on hand and gave an awesome speech that will surely get your burgundy and gold blood pumping.
You might want to buckle up that office chair seatbelt—you’ll thank me for the PSA after.
Not even the usual 2:30 feeling can stop the four-time Pro Bowler. Your boss will enjoy all the work you complete this afternoon—after reading through the Redskins Blog of course.
Also–Ken Harvey will be filling in for Antwaan Randel El on the sidelines for the Redskins preseason game against the Bills on Saturday, August 24th.
For Richmond residents, who live some 100 miles away from the team’s headquarters Ashburn and FedExField, the chance to see the Washington Redskins in their city has extended their team passion to unprecedented levels.
Each fan received a raffle ticket upon entry and were able to meet and great with the best—Redskins fans.
Redskins Rally, just like the team itself, will be on the go all season long. Not matter if it’s a Monday Night Football matchup at FedExField or a Sunday matinee in Oakland, Redskins Rally will be setting up camp in every city where the team is.
If a home game, Redskins Rally, sponsored by Bud Light, will take place at a local bar the day of the game. If an away game, there will be a rally in three different locations in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. Whether a home or away game, the cheerleaders will be on hand and tickets will be raffled off.
If you attend a Redskins Rally before home game and you win tickets, guess what?
You’re going to be joining 85,000 screaming fans at FedExField later that day. If an away game—be sure to clear your calendar when the Redskins return home.
Of course Redskins Nation isn’t landlocked into the DMV area and for all the fans outside of the region—we’ve got a treat for you.
Each time the Redskins are on the road there will be a Redskins Rally the night before the game. Not only will Larry Michael, Doc Walker and general manager Bruce Allen make appearances, but they’ll be giving away three pairs of tickets to the game as well. If luck doesn’t strike you with tickets don’t worry, you won’t be going home empty handed.
Everyone who swings by will get a free t-shirt and rally towel.
Also before we continue, for any of Redskins Nation out there that lives in the Green Bay area or knows it, we don’t have a bar for the Week 2 game yet, but would love to secure one soon.
Suggestions are welcomed below.
