We’ve covered lots of notable performances of “Hail to the Redskins” in this space. Robert Griffin III’s first public singing of the fight song, for instance. And when a Dallas radio host played it for Jerry Jones. And this dog’s heartfelt rendition.
But when someone who played 13 seasons for the Eagles sings it, even if only a line, it falls near the top of the list of best HTTRs ever. Here’s Brian Dawkins on SportsCenter yesterday breaking out into song. (via @recordsANDradio)
TWEET OF THE NIGHT
Out at dinner with the DB’s in Tampa. Got asked by a fan what position I coached. Guess I look old. Always a confidence builder. Lol

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
A 25-year old Stephen Strasburg on stiffness in his back preventing him from returning after the rain delay:
“That’s 100 percent normal. You can ask anybody in here. It’s a combination of being September and us being athletes. I’m not 20 years old anymore.”
