ask a cheerleader (part three)

(photos courtesy of Washington Redskins) MEET CHELSEA She’s 22, from Stafford, Virginia, and is back for her third year as a member of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. Here’s what she had to say. We know the Redskins cheerleaders recently went on tour to Europe to entertain the troops. Can you tell us about your experiences overseas? The Europe tour was a once in a lifetime experience, I learned so much more about what are these amazing men and women are doing […]

note: no we can’t

(courtesy photos) I know we’re less than a week away from officially replacing George W. Bush, and that news alone is enough to give folks reason to smile during these not-so-rosy days, but there’s something I feel obligated to remind people. Your vote doesn’t count. I’m sorry to break it to you, but that’s just the way it is. Sure, all these college kids are excited to “make a difference” for the first time in their life and are happily […]

ask a cheerleader (part two)

(photos courtesy of Washington Redskins) MEET STEPHANIE She’s 18 years old and is orginally from Baltimore, Maryland (but we won’t hold it against her). This is her first year on the team and she’s in the mood to answer some of your questions. FedExField is the largest stadium in the NFL. What was it like for you the very first time you stepped in front of 90,000 fans? Were you nervous? The first time I ever stepped on the field […]

ask a cheerleader (part one)

(photos courtesy of Washington Redskins) MEET HEATHER She’s 29, originally from Stafford, Virginia, and is enjoying her fifth year as a member of the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. And most importantly, she’s kind enough to answer your questions. On average, how many hours a week do you work out with the cheerleaders? Workout in the gym? Work your regular job? And how many other events a year do you work as a cheerleader for the Redskins? The cheerleaders have practice Tuesdays […]

run portis run

(photo by Brian Murphy) Life for running back Clinton Portis and the Washington Redskins is pretty darn groovy at the midpoint of the 2008 season. For starters, he leads the league in rushing with 944 yards, which is 260 yards more than anyone else in the league. That also puts Portis on pace to finish with 1,888 rushing yards, or roughly 300 more than his previous best season. But even with Clinton putting up monster numbers on a weekly basis, […]

lions playlist

(photo by Eric Leichter) 1. “Cocky” by Kid Rock Yes, the Washington Redskins defeated the Detroit Lions 25-17. That doesn’t mean everything is necessarily peachy though. Before the game even began, one couldn’t help but be concerned. Less than an hour before kickoff, the Redskins announced their inactive list and while running back Ladell Betts and the regularly injured duo of cornerback Shawn Springs and wide out Malcolm Kelly were out, there were a few surprising names also on the […]

losing london’s lunch

(photo by Brian Murphy) Apologies are due up front, with the lack of action on the blog this week. We’ve been sick all week long (which makes the above photo even more appropriate) and haven’t had much in the way of energy to dedicate to the blog. While Homer McFanboy has been home resting, Dan Steinberg has been getting it done, folks. This week he even managed to tackle a topic that we planned on pursuing this week — middle […]
