Hello Riggo’s Rag! Loyal fans of the Fan-sided Network may recognize me as Redskins Guy, or “that idiot who comments on everything in the NFC East.” Through nepotism, a lot of pestering, and the threat of imminent waterboarding, I was able to slowly break down Zach and Dave until they finally agreed to let me post something of my own.
My name is Guy and I’m an old college buddy of Dave’s. Like him, I’ve been a die hard Redskins fan since childhood. I grew up in the suburbs in between Washington DC and Baltimore. My first memory of football is hearing that a nearby team, the Baltimore Colts, had snuck out in the middle of the night and abandoned Baltimore. Fortunately for me, the Washington Redskins were there to fill the void with its loving Burgundy and Gold embrace. I never looked back.
Today I still live in the suburbs near DC, and I’m fortunate enough to be able to attend games at Fed-Ex Field regularly. I’m hoping that I can provide a local fan’s perspective to the Redskins (since he has long ago abandoned us to the cushy west-coast) while I dump all the hard stuff on Dave to analyze.
I’ll be posting more soon, but I wanted to take time to introduce myself and to let you know who the heck I was. If you have any comments or suggestions on how to make this site the best Redskins fan site ever, please feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]. You’ll be hearing from me again soon!
