5 Best Photos From SI Vault’s D.C. Day

Sports Illustrated’s @si_vault Twitter account is something like a phenomenon and a must-follow for any discerning fan on Twitter. Thankfully, it declared yesterday “Washington DC Day” and unloaded 20 or so great photos of D.C. sports subjects. Here are my five favorite, and by favorite I mean I’d never seen them before yet love them so.

The votes are in and it’s Washington DC Day at the SI Vault. Even John Riggins is dancing:

Nothing quite says Washington DC like Ronald Reagan fumbling a basketball while Pat Ewing and John Thompson look on:

This is what a Redskins cheerleader wore in 1970. Guessing this wouldn’t fly today:

Art Monk greets a fan in a wheelchair following a July 1992 Redskins practice:

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    The Sean Taylor photo was easily the best one. Silly not to be on this list.

    I love Sean Taylor as much as the next Skins fan, but that was just an ordinary Sean Taylor pic.

    That Taylor pic is at Lincoln Financial (Philly), not FedEx as the tweet says. Notable that he was giving love to the B&G fans who braved that wretched hell hole.

    Skins won 20-12. Cooley rec TD and Portis rush TD.

    No, dude. That’s after his scoop and score to send us to the playoffs in 2005. They wore the sick white/white uni combo for that awesome 5 game run. Your’e thinking of late Sean in the ‘fro stages:

    The best one is Thomson, Ewing, and Regan. I’d put in the hogs in top hats over the Monk pic. Honorable mention to Manute Bol lifting weights!
