You probably knew this was coming, and you probably like it. The Redskins will give away Kirk Cousins-inspired “You Like That?!” rally towels to fans at Sunday’s first-round playoff game against the Packers at FedEx Field. When asked how many towels will be handed out, a Redskins spokesperson responded, “Thousands.”
In other words, it may not be necessary, but you should get to Landover early if you’re determined to add this to your collection. (The RedZone lot opens at 11 a.m. and all other lots for permit holder open at noon. Gates open at 2 p.m.)
The white towels feature the logo for International Justice Mission, a D.C.-based charitable organization dedicated to protecting the poor from violence in developing countries. Proceeds from the sales of Cousins’s “You Like That” T-shirts have benefited IJM. Cousins explained how he got involved with the organization last month.
It’s probably time I let this go, but I would be remiss if I didn’t point out, once again, that Cousins’s original “You like that!” was a passionate, declarative statement, not a question. There is no doubt in his voice. He knew Comcast SportsNet’s Tarik El-Bashir liked that. He told El-Bashir that he liked that. Twice. The towels should read ‘YOU LIKE THAT!’ or ‘YOU LIKE THAT!!’
Calvert Woodley in D.C. also got into the ‘You Like That’ spirit, albeit with the same questionable punctuation.
