At first inspection, a Redskins helmet, let alone any helmet, doesn’t appear to be the most comfortable place for a newborn to take a nap. But, then just a tiny little guy, Joshua James Murrell II (known as JJ2) didn’t seem to mind one bit.
The idea for the photo, taken by a family photographer (ImagesByTiffany.net), came from the father in the picture, Josh, cradling (and christening?) his son as a Redskins fan.
Josh, his wife Luisa claims, is a “crazy obsessed” Redskins fan and borrowed the helmet from his man cave for the spectacular black and white (and burgundy and gold) shot.
Luisa is from Texas but ever since she married Josh she knows more about the Redskins than any other team. His devotion is unmatched.
“Ever since we became season ticket holders, he has only missed one game (for our wedding),” she wrote to the Redskins blog. “He goes to every game at least four hours before kickoff so we’re there for the parking lot to open up. [He] has a full Redskins tailgate, wears head to toe Redskins clothes, paints his face, and yells like crazy.”
The couple lives in Stafford, Va. and their son is now a year and four months old.
It’s safe to say he’ll be a Redskins fan when he grows up.
