John Riggins

30-Year Anniversary of The Diesel Running Over The Dolphins

Thirty years ago today the Washington Redskins celebrated their first ever Super Bowl victory. The seminal play of that game was a gutsy fourth down call from coach Joe Gibbs that gave the ball to all-awesome running back John Riggins. Riggins got much more than the first down, the Skins won, and Riggo would go on to party with Supreme Court justices.

Many thanks to William World News for the reminder on the anniversary.

    It seems like the Super Bowl gets later every year. I guess that is not true since the 30 year anniversary is just a couple of days before this year’s game.
