Last Thing: Tyler Polumbus doesn’t take pranks lying down

(John McDonnell/The Washington Post)

Redskins offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus was a little reluctant to play Last Thing because he thinks he’s boring. But some prodding from Reed Doughty encouraged him to participate. It turns out that Polumbus is not boring at all. He’s a family man who makes dinner from scratch, and he takes prank retribution very seriously.

Tyler Polumbus, what was the last…

I’ve got two kids under two and a half, so “Planes.”

My wife.
