When Nike and the NFL unveiled the new line of game uniforms last month, there was very little to say about the Redskins version, which looked pretty darn similar to last year’s Redskins uniform.
But there was this, from @HogsHaven: “Brian Orakpo tells Hogs Haven that there is an alternate jersey we have yet to see.”
The wait will end next week, when the team is holding an “80th Anniversary Kickoff” event. It’s a private affair, but among the features are “a preview of the new Nike Redskins throwback uniform.”
Seems to me that a few Skins fans might be interested in the results.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
Jason Reid defends the Kirk Cousins pick. Yes, I'm as shocked as you are.
Karl Alzner on the Game 3 philosophy: “Don’t get fancy.”

TWEET OF THE NIGHT
Tom Boswell is fairly excited about the Harper Era.
Will Harper be great? Don't know. But he's 1st I've seen who could probably make MLB at all NINE positions Throws 96. Was catcher. SS, yup.— Thomas Boswell (@ThomasBoswellWP) May 2, 2012
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Nene on being in D.C.
“I thought the city was going to be the same way like New York, like L.A., crazy, fast tempo. I don’t like this kind of city. But it’s different. It’s a small city. It’s a nice, international city. They have nice suburbs. I just need to learn the streets. Alphabet streets. Maybe I’ll be fine to drive.”

WHAT TO WATCH TODAY
The Nats host Arizona again at 7 on MASN2. The Orioles are in New York at 7 on MASN. The Caps play on NBC Sports Network at 7:30. And D.C. United is in San Jose at 10:30 on CSN Plus. All TV/Radio listings are here.
Puck Daddy on Dale Hunter: “I’m baffled. I don’t know if Dale Hunter is the NHL coaching equivalent of Chance the Gardener or if he’s established a new paradigm for how the Capitals are to win in the playoffs. I can’t figure out if he’s lucked into success or if there’s a method to his madness.”
The Nats haven’t won since they were featured in Sports Illustrated.
Amazing stuff from the archives on Walter Johnson’s debut.
