Snyder Family Kicks Off NFL Fan Style Tour At Team Store

The Tysons Center Redskins team store turned into a brief fashion show Friday evening.

Tanya Snyder, wife of team owner Dan Snyder, and their two daughters, Tiffanie and Brittanie, helped kick off one of the final stops of the NFL Style Tour, which makes its way to FedExField on Saturday. For a few hours they took photos, tried on Redskins clothing and promoted the latest fashion choices for young women around their age.

The VIP-style event was an opportunity to engage with some fans and demonstrate the plethora of options female fans can own to show their fandom.

“I love to be part of the campaign,” Tanya Snyder said. “Over a decade we’ve been working on merchandise and we’re continuing to get better and better, and now with the new fashion campaign we’re – for the last five years – getting off the top, great fashionable pieces that we’re having a lot of fun with.”

Brittanie Snyder said her mother always “encouraged us to dress nicer and try out different looks with all the Redskins gear.”

“I wear my Redskins gear everywhere,” she said. “Before, when it was just jerseys and jeans, I didn’t want to wear that at home because it wasn’t comfortable.”

Her sister agreed, and is glad there are multiple and adaptable options to show her pride each day.

“We didn’t have to sacrifice our own style to do it,” Tiffanie Snyder said. “It was very nice to find merchandise that we enjoyed and paired with things we would normally wear like skirts or pants.”

The idea behind the campaign is that showing fandom, especially for women, doesn’t have to be relegated to game day, but all seven days of the week. As the girls mixed and matched outfits, that much was clear.

Tanya Snyder has found it particularly rewarding, reaching out to women each day and learning about their traditions. The new fashion line allows her expertise to reach out directly to Redskins supporters.

“Getting women together, they’re able to share the passion and love for the Redskins as a franchise,” she said. “They live it everyday.”

The NFL Fan Style Tour continues Saturday at FedExField at 12:30 p.m., where the style truck will be available for the public until the Redskins-Eagles game kicks off at 4:30 p.m.

The truck is located at the Hall of Fame Store (between Gates A & H), and will be fully equipped with NFL products and apparel for men, women and children. 

The experience, which includes NFL trivia and an EA Madden 15 gaming station, is free for all fans.

Redskins Fan A Staple At Wizards Games

As the college bowl season kicks off Saturday, The Redskins Blog will be highlighting the games that current Redskins players will likely be monitoring.

E.J. Biggers will be paying attention to:

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl — Western Michigan vs. Air Force — December 20, Boise, Idaho

Biggers started 40 games at cornerback for Western Michigan from 2005-08. He earned second-team All-MAC honors before being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the seventh round of the 2009 draft.

Western Michigan has never had a bowl victory but Biggers helped lead them to two consecutive bowls to end his college career.

Tevita Stevens will be paying attention to:

Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl — Utah vs. Colorado State — December 20, Las Vegas, Nevada

stevens

Stevens was a four-year starting offensive lineman, playing center in his junior and senior years.

He graduated after the 2012 season but was part of four consecutive bowl games with Utah (2009-2011), which went 3-1 in that span, including upsetting Alabama, and most recently beating Georgia Tech, in overtime at the Sun Bowl.

Check back throughout the next few weeks for more Bowl Games and player histories to follow.

Apparently, Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris is a big fan of a very specific kind of pie.

Morris took to Instagram Friday to express his gratitude and excitement towards quarterback Kirk Cousins, who helped deliver Morris a pie– or as Morris calls it, “a delicacy”– from “Mike’s Pies,” all the way from Florida.

Morris was born and raised in Pensacola, Fla., so the retail chain, which is based in the Tampa area but has other varying locations, is a slice of home.

Happy eating!

Redskins Fan A Staple At Wizards Games

Walter, known to many at the Verizon Center as “Pump It Up Man,” proudly wears his Redskins jersey to every Washington Wizards game.

He’s a fan of both teams, but he’s also superstitious.

In a recent interview with TruthAboutIt.net, Walter explained the Redskins gear he wears is both devotional and necessary.

When he started wearing burgundy and gold, good things happened.

Walter, from Bowie, Md., fluctuates between wearing Clinton Portis and Robert Griffin III jerseys and then goes for his signature “Pump It Up” arm gesture, raising the roof during timeouts and rallying fans and players on the big screen.

In the interview, Walter admits he first started going to Redskins games in 1963, when the team played at Griffith Stadium, and became a Wizards fan several years later after attending Morgan State University.

Maybe the best, or most controversial, tidbit from Walter came at the end, when asked about why his wife doesn’t join him for games. “She’s a Dallas Cowboys fan,” he said. “I don’t want her to be around me.”

Gary Clark Sends Out Holiday Greetings

Over the last few weeks legendary Redskins wide receiver Gary Clark has become active on Youtube, posting and sending videos of gratitude and well wishes out to fans.

The videos, which last about 45 seconds each, are meant to thank those who have been devoted to the team and may have had some hardships or significant moments recently in their lives.

“We really do appreciate the fans who stick with the team,” Clark told The Redskins Blog.

Clark has contacted many of his clients this way but also tasked them with finding other football fans they know that might be in need of a greeting from a two-time Super Bowl champion.

“I’m finally figuring out how to do technology things,” joked Clark, who says he has about 40 more videos to shoot in the next two days.

After he finished recording he’ll email recipients a link to the video and then follow up with a 5-10 minute phone call, just so they know his gesture wasn’t some kind of prank.

He said he sees this becoming an ongoing practice, engaging directly with fans and making their experience a personal one, especially around the holidays.

If you have a story for Gary and would like to send him your thoughts for the new year, contact him over email:  info@yournflexperience.com

Ryan Kerrigan On Andrew Luck’s In-Game Compliment: ‘It Was Really Weird’

From Muncie (Ind.) Central High School to Purdue to the Washington Redskins, Ryan Kerrigan had never experienced anything like he did on Nov. 30 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Sure, he had recorded sacks before during his Redskins career — 33 to be exact up to that point — and yes, he’s forced a few fumbles, but to get a compliment as soon as it happens?

Never.

But that’s exactly what happened when he strip-sacked Colts quarterback Andrew Luck on the very first play of the Redskins-Colts game.

The Wall Street Journal earlier this week ran an article about Luck’s complementary trash-talking.

The day after it was published, Kerrigan told ESPN 980 that “it was really weird” to hear positive comments coming from a guy he just forced into a turnover.

“After I hit him one time, they were down, we had them backed up and I hit him one time right as he was throwing the ball,” Kerrigan said. “As he was getting up, he was like, ‘Man, who was that? Was that you Kerrigan? Good hit, man.’ And I was just like, ‘What? What did you say to me?’

“I’ve heard him on [NFL Network’s] Sound FX before, so it wasn’t the first time I’ve heard it. But to actually have it happen to me, it was such an odd experience.”

Shortly after the play, Kerrigan asked Trent Murphy, former college teammates with Luck, if that was a common thing.

“So immediately, I’m like talking to Trent Murphy on the sidelines and I’m like, ‘Was he like this at Stanford? Did he always try to get in people’s heads?’” Kerrigan told ESPN 980. “He said, ‘Yeah, that’s kind of his thing.’”

In seven career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, meanwhile, Kerrigan has four sacks — tied for the most against one team in his career along with the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Redskins, of course, square off tomorrow with the Eagles at FedExField.
