Hundreds of ecstatic Washington Redskins fans packed into Woolly Mammoth near downtown Philadelphia Saturday evening, to rally the burgundy and gold to victory against the Eagles in Sunday’s NFC East tilt.
The crowd was treated to appearances by Redskins legends Rick “Doc” Walker and Gary Clark.
Clark, who played his first 8 seasons in the NFL with the Redskins, helped the Redskins win 2 Super Bowl titles. He finished his illustrious career in burgundy and gold with 549 receptions for 8,742 yards – he recorded at least 1,000 yards in 5 seasons — and 58 touchdowns.
Walker, a great Redskins tight end, played with the team from 1980 through 1985, winning a Super Bowl title with the team during the 1982 season. He is currently a fixture on the sidelines during each game for the Redskins Broadcast Network, and also co-hosts the daily show “Inside The Locker Room” on ESPN 980.
Fans packed the house, as prizes ranging from signed memorabilia to free tickets to tomorrow’s game were raffled off.
