The Women Of Washington Redskins Walk For Fitness

Posted by Matt Terl on November 13, 2010 – 4:41 pm

That’s Roxi McNabb, wife of QB Donovan, and Christy Cooley, wife of tight end Chris, walking together just before the start of today’s Fit For You 5K at National Harbor. The Women Of Washington Redskins assembled prior to the start of the race to send off the runners before leading the group of walkers, and Cooley’s holding the sign up to help guide the group to the stage. Tanya Snyder, wife of team owner Daniel, held a similar sign aloft on the stage.

It might seem like a minor detail. But the signs, with their new official-looking logo and enthusiastic exclamation point, seem to represent a moment for this group, as the Women Of Washington Redskins take another step from just being a group of Redskins’ wives and toward being a visible, recognizable ambassador for the team.

McNabb seemed both pleased and mildly surprised with how the group was coming together, and she has a broader frame of reference than some. “Just in the first nine weeks of the [regular] season, I think we’ve done more charity work and been together and worked out with each other more than I think I’ve done in … you know, eleven years with the other team we were with.” (Oh, did the McNabb’s come here from somewhere else? I had no idea. You’d think someone would’ve mentioned that at some point.) Read more »

Tanya Snyder And Christy Cooley Head To Indianapolis For A Walk

Posted by Matt Terl on October 30, 2010 – 4:21 pm

The Fit For You 5K in D.C. is still a couple of weeks away, and you should sign up now. But the 5K walk/run, which supports the NFL Play 60 Challenge, is also part of the NFL’s new women’s initiative. And since Tanya Snyder and Christy Cooley are two of the official spokepeople for that initiative, they found themselves on an early morning flight to Indianapolis today to take part in the first such event.

I’ll have much more on the event on Monday, but wanted to at least share some pictures today. The day wound up gorgeous, and the walk was well-attended by women, men, kids, dogs, and even mascots — both official:

— and unofficial (think Chief Zee, only Coltsier):

Then there was an appearance by Lazytown‘s Sportacus, which was … surreal. Read more »

Video Of The Women Of Washington’s Tracy Anderson Workout

Posted by Matt Terl on October 27, 2010 – 3:02 pm

When I wrote on Monday about the Women Of Washington preparing for the Fit For You 5K, I ran into some trouble trying to describe the Tracy Anderson Method that they were using. I mentioned some of Anderson’s celeb credentials — Shakira! Madonna! Gwyneth! — and then offered this gem to describe what the workouts looked like: “an intense combination of yoga, cheerleading, and the movie Flashdance.”

That, it could be argued, is not a very good descriptor. Fortunately, we live in an age where moving images can be captured via a “camera” and “embedded” onto these here “websites,” and Redskins.com TV has provided just such a moving image of the event. So here are Tanya Snyder, Christy Cooley, and more of WOW, along with Tracy Anderson. You be the judge of if my descriptor was terrible or just bad.

Also, don’t forget to register for the Fit For You 5K, even if you haven’t had that particular variety of training. Very few of us have. Read more »

A Redskins Presence In New NFLShop Ads [Updated]

Posted by Matt Terl on September 23, 2010 – 3:53 pm

So there’s this ad campaign running in support of the NFL’s clothing line for women, Touch. The theme of the TV spots and magazine ads is that women no longer need to wear oversized men’s jerseys, because — according to an August 26 article in the New York Times — “When a woman wears a traditional man’s jersey, ‘you just look like you’re wearing a big tent,’ said Alice Ericsson, executive vice president and group creative director for Grey New York, which is working with the N.F.L. on the campaign.”

Well, the spots have begun making their way to the public, and there’s a strong Redskins presence to them.

That’s Redskins owner Daniel Snyder having a men’s jersey returned to him by his wife Tanya at about 0:09 there. And last week’s People Magazine carried this ad, featuring Chris Cooley‘s wife Christy: Read more »
