Ashley Caldwell: Olympian and Redskins Fan

Posted by Ross Hollebon on January 24, 2014 – 6:02 pm

Ashley CaldwellLoudoun County, Va. native Ashley Caldwell is now a two-time Olympian after being named to the U.S. Skiing squad for the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Now 20 years old, Caldwell participated in the aerials event during 2010 in Vancouver as the youngest member of the entire U.S. team (16 years old), realizing an Olympic dream after combining a childhood of gymnastics and skiing.

She also happens to be a lifelong Washington Redskins fan.

Caldwell has competed in the NFL’s Punt, Pass, and Kick competition multiple times at FedExField and often displays her fandom when she is flying through the sky as a skiing aerialist.

Her skis are decorated with the Redskins logotype and colors as she shoots into the air, twirling, flipping and spinning before making her way back to the ground to stick her landing.

It isn’t often we get the opportunity to sit back as an organization and just be fans, but thanks to Caldwell we will get that opportunity next month.

We look forward to cheering as she competes for gold, and allows us to flip the script for our social media “Fan Fridays” as we cover her journey, provide additional background and exclusive footage from the Games and the moments surrounding them.

Congrats, Ashley! We’re excited to cheer you on and follow you on Twitter @AshleySkis.

Gibran Hamdan And His Fashionable Life After Football

Posted by Brian Tinsman on June 13, 2011 – 1:39 pm

I don’t always cover former Redskins players on this blog, but intern Brian Tinsman made a compelling pitch for this remarkable look at former quarterback Gibran Hamdan. I think you’ll agree that it was worth it.

For those of you that lie in bed at night wondering what ever became of former Redskins quarterback Gibran Hamdan, this story is for you. You’re welcome.

Hamdan was a seventh round pick (232nd overall) by the Redskins in the 2003 NFL Draft. Aside from an illustrious career in NFL Europe, he holds the distinction of being the first player of Pakistani descent to play in the NFL. He is also a local product out of Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.

He only appeared in one career NFL game, for the Redskins against the Eagles in 2003. In that game, he was 1-for-2 for seven yards, and a whopping 58.3 quarterback rating. (You might also remember him leading the Buffalo Bills against his old team late in a 2008 preseason game. Then again, you might not.) Read more »

Niles Paul Has A Believer In Former College Coach

Posted by Ryan Gracia on June 13, 2011 – 12:05 pm

Intern Ryan Gracia checks in with some highlights from one of several quality Niles Paul interviews with the Examiner’s John Keim.

From the looks of it, Niles Paul seems destined to quickly win the respect of his teammates, fans and coaches once training camp finally comes around.

Ted Gilmore, who coached the receivers at Nebraska during Paul’s four-year college career, has a good feeling Paul could be “an absolute steal” for the Redskins come the start of the season. There are things that fans know about Paul from what they see him do on the field and what they hear about him in the media.

But what some may not realize is that the wideout has all the characteristics to be a great player, besides the obvious on-field capabilities. He’s got great work ethic, competitiveness and confidence to name a few. Simply put, he loves the game — and it’s all put into perspective by Gilmore in an excellent recent interview with John Keim of the Washington Examiner. Here are some of Paul’s lesser-known qualities, highly praised by his former college coach:

Bruce Allen Is Okay With Rooting For Dallas In Basketball

Posted by Matt Terl on June 13, 2011 – 10:48 am

Like so many other fans of D.C. sports, I was rooting pretty enthusiastically against LeBron James in this year’s NBA Finals. All these years later, the whole DeShawn Stevenson/Soulja Boy/Jay Z thing is still amazing, and the crab dribble still annoys me. And all of that doesn’t even account for his more recent spectacles of ego. So seeing a bunch of ex-Wizards (and one Player Development Coach who’s a Redskins fan) crush James’ hopes and dreams … I was pretty okay with that.

But I had a real problem admitting that I was rooting for Dallas. It just plain doesn’t feel right as a Redskins fan to root for a Dallas team, and that nagged at me right on through the Mavericks’ victory. Fortunately, I was able to ask an expert about the situation

Bruce Allen has lived and breathed the Redskins/Cowboys rivalry all his life, and feels it as keenly as anyone. So today, while Allen was getting ready for the Red Cross Invitational charity golf tournament, I explained the situation to him and asked if he believed it was acceptable to root for Dallas teams in other sports.

The First Segment Of The FedExField Upper Deck Being Removed

Posted by Matt Terl on June 10, 2011 – 4:02 pm

Hey, you know all those cranes that we’ve seen looming over FedExField? The ones that never seemed to be doing anything in the pictures I’ve posted? They’re doing stuff now.

Specifically, they’re pulling out huge segments of concrete from the upper deck. As always, I’ll have more details one I know them, but for now I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. (Click to enlarge; they’re much more impressive when you get a sense of the size of the concrete segment.)

Anthony Armstrong Talks Redskins, Racing, Rookies & RB's

Posted by Brian Tinsman on June 10, 2011 – 2:19 pm

Intern Brian Tinsman catches up with yet another of Anthony Armstrong’s other gigs: his Sports Journey radio show.

That headline is brought to you by the letter ‘R.’

On his weekly Sports Journey broadcast of the “Anthony Armstrong Show with Lake Lewis,” Armstrong covers a little bit of everything Redskins, starting with his offseason workouts.

Armstrong–along with other Redskins in the area–has been working out with former Redskins linebacker Eddie Mason at his MASE Training facilities. Armstrong says that the goal of his workouts is to build strength and speed for the upcoming season:

I haven’t really gained a whole bunch of weight. I’m gonna be playing at about 185 [pounds], so it’ll be good. But it’s a lot more strength and things, a lot more of the smaller muscles. Y’know, the ones that you don’t really use as much, are getting built up. A lot of functional strength.

When Lewis asks him about the title of fastest Redskin, Armstrong likes his chances against return specialist Brandon Banks. However, he admits that the head-to-head race may never happen, due to the risk of injury: Read more »

Another Crane At FedExField

Posted by Matt Terl on June 9, 2011 – 3:27 pm

I’m presuming that at some point, these updates of the construction at FedExField will include scenes of dramatic, kinetic action … or at least some kind of solidly visible change. For now, here’s another crane that’s arrived at the stadium — a very, very large crane indeed.

After the jump, the same photo given the BeFunky.com treatment to look like a dramatic art print (or the cover of a ponderously serious indie rock album).
