I don’t recall such Redskins-related elation since I started my blog, and that would include the 2007 playoff run. I was walking into the Watha T. Daniel library in Shaw on Saturday morning, and the two guys in front of me were discussing the trade with a fervor that doesn’t often grip D.C. sports fans.
Heck, The Post had to rip up the front page — like, A1 — to make sure the news would be properly presented to Saturday morning readers.
But all that is a very sterile and dry way of describing the feeling 48 hours later. To get something more in-the-moment, please have a listen to Tavon, a caller to 106.7 The Fan Saturday morning.
“YOU’VE GOT TO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING, AND RIGHT NOW, I BELIEVE IN THAT NATION WITH ALL MY HEART, MY SOUL AND MY PASSION,” he says, near the dramatic conclusion. “Y’ALL BETTER GET READY, BECAUSE I’M TELLING YOU SOMETHING, HEY, A CHANGE IS HERE, AND IT’S COMING, AND IT’S RGIII.”
Please do listen below.
