Redskins fan of the week

The “Fan of the Week” is a weekly feature during football season. This week we spotlight Victor Turner. Nominees are selected by the hosts of The WalkOns, a sports talk show on Sunday mornings at 11:30 a.m. on Blog Talk Radio. If you wish to submit a nomination, please email

Q: What made you become a Redskins Fan?
A: As with many Washingtonians, my dad was a ‘Skins fan and I grew up watching them...I remember when the Redskins in the ‘80s and ‘90s were a winning team.

Q:Who is your favorite player ever to wear the burgundy and gold?  
A: Wow! Umm! I’m going with Gary Clark...Ok! I know your readers are going to question that, seeing as I could have gone with Art Monk or Darrell Green. In fact, I used to like John Riggins, the “Riggo Ranger.” How many of your readers remember Lil’ Joe Washington?

Q: What’s your most memorable Redskins moment? 
A: Doug Williams winning the Super Bowl over Denver...That was easy...He was the first black quarterback to win the big game! History!

Q: If you were Daniel Snyder, what would you do to make the Skins a Super Bowl contender?
A: Stop running the team like a fantasy football team owner. Let your coach, coach! And let the general manager do his job and MAN- Can we get a decent quarterback?

Q: What makes you a unique Redskins’ fan?
A:  Look I’m not a unique fan...the Skins toy with my emotions every week just like the next fan. But, if anything makes me a unique fan it’s that I have the team tattooed on my arm so no matter what, I’m [going to] die a Skin fan. I know more about the Redskins history than I do my own. Also, don’t call or text me when they playin’ ‘cause I’m not answering.
