Fans Rally Around Redskins In Dallas!

Outside of the greater DMV area, one of the strongest hotbeds of Washington Redskins support has always come from deep in the heart of Texas.

That may come as a surprise to fans outside of the Lonestar State–what with the Dallas Cowboys and all–but the Burgundy and Gold Fan Club of Dallas, Texas has a great following and throws some of the best Redskins rallies worth looking forward to every year.

This year’s event was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., but the Redskins setup team (including your’s truly) was greeted at the door by dozens of fans when they arrived at quarter to 5. By 5:15 there was a steady stream of fans through the free T-shirt line, and by 5:30 it was downright crowded in the bar area.

By the time the Redskins celebrities arrived at 6 p.m., the fans had already maxed out capacity of the restaurant and the 400 free “Live It” T-shirts at the door were long-gone. Gazing outside, there was a line of Redskins fans waiting patiently on the sidewalk to get into the bar.

That’s when the real fun began, as Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, accompanied by his wife Tanya Snyder, came to the party, joined by general manager Bruce Allen, former players Chris Cooley and Rick ‘Doc’ Walker, and voice of the Redskins, Larry Michael.

A good time was had by all, and here’s a social recap of the night’s festivities:
