Griffin III Comes Home To Redskins Park

After a day of plane tracking, Twitter photos, and blog teasers, new Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has finally come home to roost at Redskins Park.

Griffin arrived with his family at the facilities late this afternoon and was escorted around his new place of employment by the Redskins brass.  This was his second trip to the facilities, but the first wearing a Redskins emblem.  The last time he came by was several weeks ago for his official visit with the team.

This visit was a lot less awkward, and lot more exciting for everyone involved.

Redskins broadcaster Larry Michael and Jordan Beane made the trip up to New York early this morning in order to document the Griffin trip back to Washington.  Here’s a video recap of the first of many Redskins days with Robert Griffin III: Read more »

Tweet Your Way Into #RG3toDC Mosaic

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 27, 2012 – 7:49 pm

Over the last 24 hours, the Redskins have endorsed a Twitter campaign based on the hashtag #RG3toDC.  The Twitter gatekeepers at Redskins Park (i.e. me) have kept an eye on the tweets throughout the day to monitor the excitement level from fans.

Not surprisingly, it’s off the charts.

Over on the Redskins.com homepage, a landing page has actually been set up to track these tweets, by turning the twitpics into a Griffin mosaic.  If you hover over the mosaic, the pictures become visible, and if you click on a given pixel, the corresponding tweet appears.

It’s pretty cool.

Most of the mosaic is being filled in by average, die-hard Redskins fans, but a number of celebrities have rolled out the burgundy carpet for Robert Griffin III, recording video greetings.  Those videos have been tweeted out throughout the day on our Redskins Twitter handle (@Redskins), and I encourage you to check up on each video.

After watching the videos, put together your own welcome video, and tweet it to @Redskins with the hashtag #RG3toDC.

Here’s the VIP list of welcomes to the district for Robert Griffin III. Click on the twitvid link to watch: Read more »

Earlier this afternoon, new Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III boarded Redskins One bound for Washington D.C.  This is Griffin’s first trip to his new home as a member of the organization, and he enjoyed the relaxation of the team’s official charter plane.

Griffin will arrive at Redskins Park later this afternoon, to meet with the coaching staff and get started on his journey as a Redskin.  #RG3toDC is in full effect, and we’ll be covering every step of this young man’s path.

‘Discovery’s’ Flyover From Redskins Park

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 17, 2012 – 1:34 pm

It’s not uncommon to hear the dull roar of an incoming 747 as they fly over Redskins Park several dozen times per day.  Head coach Mike Shanahan is a generally soft-spoken man, which presents an added element of secrecy during his post-practice press conferences.

But while planes can be a minor nuisance in-season, today they were cause for great celebration, as one carrying the Space shuttle Discovery flew over around 10 a.m.

The plane took off from the Kennedy Space Center and was carrying the precious cargo to the Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va.  Space enthusiasts, police officers (and people running late for work) pulled over to the side of the road on Rt. 28 and the Loudoun County Parkway, watching the plane descend.

This is the final scheduled flight for NASA’s shuttle program, which was officially retired last year.  Discovery was the final active ship of the fleet, and made 39 successful missions in 27 years of service.

Here’s video of the awesome tandem flight from the practice fields at Redskins Park: Read more »

Mike Shanahan Hobnobs With Joe Gibbs

Ever wonder what would happen if current Redskins coach Mike Shanahan ran into legendary head coach Joe Gibbs in the halls of Redskins Park?  Well, wonder no more, they would compare notes on franchise quarterbacks.

Courtesy of the Redskins Facebook page, we have exclusive footage of a chummy exchange at the Park: Read more »

New Practice Bubble Turf Surface In Place

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 10, 2012 – 2:01 pm

Only three weeks ago, Redskins fans saw the long-awaited rise of the new indoor practice bubble at Redskins Park.

In the time since then, the bubble has been rigged with lighting and a brand new field turf surface has been rolled out inside.

All-in-all, it’s starting to finally look like a facility that will host NFL-quality practices.  Here’s Redskins Nation’s Larry Michael with an exclusive sneak peek inside the brand new facility (via CSNWashington): Read more »

A Fresh Homecoming Photo At The Park

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 7, 2012 – 5:51 pm

One of the first things that I noticed upon my return to Redskins Park this morning, is that the 2010 Redskins Homecoming photograph had been updated with a fresh 2011 Homecoming shot.

The photo (which is much higher quality than my picture of a picture through reflective glass) features 78 Redskins alumni, taken on the field in the southwest end zone before the 49ers game.  This was the second year for the Redskins Homecoming game, part of a concerted effort to re-engage the Redskins Alumni with the organization.

But if you look closely at the center of the picture, you’ll see one individual that isn’t reliving the glory days.  That would be George Starke, Jr., riding in an infant pouch strapped to his namesake’s chest: Read more »

Redskins Park Tribute To Army-Navy Game

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 25, 2012 – 4:53 pm

This week, the Redskins added this commemorative Army-Navy football to the display case in the lobby of Redskins Park.

For fans of amateur athletics, this Dec. 10th game was an absolute gem, befitting the game’s first trip to the Nation’s Capital.  Both teams resorted to a ground-n-pound offense that’s become synonymous with academy play, and the game came down to the final minutes of the fourth quarter.

With 80,789 people at FedExField to see the Nation’s Greatest Rivalry, it was the rivalry’s largest attendance in nearly three decades, since the game went west to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. in 1983.

All in all, it was a great game, and a big win for the Navy Midshipmen.  Now, it will also be remembered forever, here at Redskins Park.

Whether you “Hoo-rah!” “Hoo-yah!” or “Oo-rah!” (or some variation thereof), congratulations and thank you for your service.

Kicker Loving The New Practice Bubble

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 24, 2012 – 6:34 pm

The ending of last weekend’s AFC Championship game reminded everyone in the NFL that there is no such thing as an automatic kick, and that things can go awry from the moment coaches call for a field goal, until the ball hits the back net.

Plain and simple, kicking is a lot harder than it looks.

Part of preparing for tough kicking conditions is practicing repetitions in lousy weather conditions.  But another part of preparing to do a precision task is to prepare in perfect conditions–the type made possible with a practice bubble.

Count Redskins kicker Graham Gano as a big fan of the new indoor practice bubble at Redskins Park.  He tweeted his appreciation for the all-weather bubble a short time ago: Read more »
