  1. My grandparents, on my father's side, lived in Boston in 1932. They were fans from the beginning. Shortly after the team moved to DC, my grandparents followed. They went to every home game since before season tickets were a thing. I was born in DC, but I didn't really become a fan until George Allen and the Over the Hill Gang. I moved away from the area when I was 14, but I never stopped being a fan.
  2. Yes. Two NFL Championships before the merger and three Superbowls.
  3. "The goddamed Germans got nothing to do with it." - Sheriff Buford T. Justice
  4. "Hold my beer." - AYDS diet candy
  5. Billy/Sonny/Larry/Charley Beating Dallas to go to SB VII
  6. Two actually, and another one in New York, up near Canada.
  7. Trying to avoid a blackout without having to buy them themselves.
  8. I moved away, but still find a way to watch My Redskins games. I am sure I am not alone. I can't get to many games at FedEx Field. I have been to more Redskins Games in NY/NJ. I have been to four home games since the stadium opened.
  9. Friday morning, before you get up. I think around 4:00 AM. I have my TiVo set to record it. I will listen to the Sirius radio broadcast on Thursday though. Miss you, Sonny!
  10. I once took a boombox into my back yard on Long Island, to pick up an AM broadcast of a Redskins v. Bears game off the clouds from Chicago. This was in the 80s when both teams were good.
  11. Mostly not my doing. I give credit to their mother.
  12. No need to brag on my sons. They are both fine on their own.

    Tax Bill

    I could say the same if I lived in a taker state, but I got royally ****ed. You're welcome, taker states.
  14. You should come to Redemption. It's a Skins bar at 53rd and Second. Every (Regular Season and Playoff) game it's the only game. About 100-120 of our Skins brothers and sisters going nuts I come in every week from Long Island. p.s. forgive me if you already know about it.
