Just A Great Super Bowl XXII Photograph


Shared months ago by Mr. Irrelevant Maryland sports correspondent Andy Peden and found in my inbox moments ago is this lovely gem. Here’s the quick backstory:

It was taken postgame of Super Bowl XXII in a bar in San Diego. The four guys in jackets were singers in the Redskins band. The dude in front was a local who was a Skins fan. This is what a Super Bowl victory celebration looks like. Glorious!

You’ll recall that game was played in San Diego and Doug Williams went off en route to a 42-10 victory over Denver. What I don’t recall, or was perhaps unaware of, is that the Redskins band had singers.

I want to believe this is true, and I also want that gentleman’s Doug Williams T-shirt.
