Brad Labanow, 28, has a tattoo that leaves its mark deeper than the skin. Labanow, who lives in Marana, Ariz., has a 1970’s-esque Redskins logo on his right shoulder.

And even though he was wearing a vintage Redskins shirt around downtown Phoenix during the week of Super Bowl XLIX, he said he does not need to wear a shirt or hat to show his love for the team.

His decision was easy.

“I was like, ‘Yep, that’ll work. I’ll do that,’” said Labanow, pulling up his sleeve over the weekend to expose the tattoo to the Arizona sun. “Even though we haven’t done well since ’92 it seems like, it’s still something I’m proud of. It’ll always be on there.”

Cofield: Good To Get A Win For The Fans

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 30, 2011 – 12:37 pm

When the Redskins won on Sunday evening in Seattle, there was an uneasiness that followed the team buses back to the airport.  It took me a while to put my finger on it, but as I watched the very subdued celebration on the team plane, it occurred to me.

This team had forgotten how to relax after a win.

Following each of the six losses in a row, the team had becoming accustomed to facing a skeptical media and promising to do better.  After a hard-fought victory on Sunday, Redskins nose tackle Barry Cofield explained that it almost felt foreign.

“It was almost like a weird feeling, as sad as that is,” he said with a chuckle.  “It’s been so long, you just didn’t–you didn’t know how to react.”

But as losing can be to players, Cofield understands that the biggest burden is carried by their family members and the fans.

“It was great for your family and your friends, and the fans that really care about what’s going on,” he said.  “Obviously, we’re so caught up in the moment that we’ve gotta come back to practice.  But those guys, they have to live with it all week.

“So it was good to get a win for them.”

Pure Fan-demonium: A Picture Recap

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 6, 2011 – 5:57 pm

The best part of my job is that it gives me license to talk to not only the players, but also the fans.  And as far as Redskins fans are concerned, there are more characters than Disney World.

Going into the crowds today, I talked to people from 12 different states, including Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Iowa.  I talked to casual fans, I talked to super fans, I talked to fans of four other NFL teams that “just wanted to see what was up.”

Right.  To those fans, I said, “Stay awhile, you just might like what you see.”

Here’s a recap of awesome fans that showed up to the practice: Read more »

This is video from about 9:30 a.m. and the crowd has already tripled:

Like Father, Like Son: Choosing Redskins Over Cowboys

Posted by Ross Leonhart on August 6, 2011 – 9:57 am

I’ll always remember how I became a Redskins fan, despite growing up around a heavy Baltimore Ravens influence. My grandfather told the best stories about the Redskins, and my next-door-neighbor sat me down to sing ‘Hail to the Redskins’ and cheer on the ‘Skins.

But, some people take a much more difficult route to find their inner Burgundy and Gold.

Kevin Smith Sr. was a Redskins fan in a Cowboys family, and he remembers destroying his mother’s living room décor in a scrum with his father over the Redskins-Cowboys VHS that yielded a victory for the good guys; something his dad didn’t want to watch again.

Now, Kevin Sr. has passed on his Washington loyalties to the next generation by introducing his son, Kevin Jr., to a little something we call Redskins football.

The two haven’t missed a day of training camp yet, and are just as fired up as players like Santana Moss and Brian Orakpo.

A Redskins House, Redskins Tooth, And Other Things You Can Vote For

Posted by Matt Terl on May 31, 2011 – 2:55 pm

The Redskins Fan Draft Photo Contest — last seen on this blog as an excuse to post pictures of pets in Redskins gear — has entered the public voting stage. Twenty finalists have been selected, and now you all can go vote for your favorites. And boy, is there some remarkably fanatical stuff for you to choose from.

Like this submission from Rosey King, an entire house painted in Redskins colors:

Or those old friends of this blog, via Tim Thompson, Uncle Skins and Bet-skins Ross:

Or the Knestricks, a couple who incorporated Redskins attire into their wedding:

Or, perhaps most unsually, this Redskins permanent dental crown:

And Now, Pets In Redskins Gear

Posted by Matt Terl on May 27, 2011 – 12:15 pm

The Redskins Fan Draft photo contest (which I previously discussed here) will be announcing its finalists at 2:00 today. As I write this, I don’t know who will be in the finals, but I do know that there were a whole lot of excellent photos submitted. Here are a few of those, specifically the subset that I’ve entitled “Pets In And Around Redskins Stuff”. Clicking on the picture will take you to that entry’s page at the Fan Draft for more details.

Larry Brown Is Still A Fan Favorite

Posted by Matt Terl on May 17, 2011 – 3:33 pm

If you were to ask me to guess the favorite running back of a random South Carolina high school student, it would take a very, very long time before I came up with the name of Larry Brown. Which isn’t a slight on Brown, who was a terrific running back — four Pro Bowls, three-time first-team All Pro, the 1972 offensive player of the year … the list of accolades goes on and on.

But it’s just not an obvious answer. Even someone who is a high school senior in 2011 would’ve been born seventeen years after Brown retired. And Brown has no specific connection to South Carolina, either: he was born and raised in Pennsylvania, went to college in Kansas, and played his entire pro career with the Redskins.

Nevertheless, Brown is apparently the favorite player of Calhoun Academy (S.C.) student Michael Pascoe … and, according to The Times And Democrat, Pascoe even had the opportunity to meet Brown.
