Redskins fan rattles off 53-man roster from memory

WTKR News Channel 3 did a Redskins training camp spot this morning, trying to capture the excitement of the first day in Richmond. The station searched for the most knowledgeable fan in line, and settled on a young chap who proceeded to rattle off last year’s 53-man roster from memory.

Now, after a few minutes’ thought, I guess this isn’t horribly impressive. For one thing, he was including players who are no longer on the roster, like Lorenzo Alexander. For another, I’d say a huge percentage of Redskins fans could get at least 49 or 50 of these names without looking them up.

Still. The lights were on, the camera was in his face, and he ran off the roster in just a few seconds. Not a bad start to camp.
