Vintage Video: Art Monk & the Fun Bunch

Stet Sports shares this footage from 1983 for you, sons of Washington:

So much to love here. Let’s go ahead and list the reasons:

  • In-their-prime Madden and Summerall on the call
  • Monk burning his man on a stop-and-go
  • Theismann hitting him in stride
  • Jacoby beating everyone to the celebration
  • “Downtown” Charlie Brown getting feisty
  • Joe Gibbs’ sweater-hat combo
  • The freaking Fun Bunch, man

The score put the Skins up 21-10, and they won 31-10. Monk had 116 yards, Riggins scored two touchdowns, Dave Butz recorded 2.5 sacks and Darrell Green picked one off. The victory made the Skins 13-2, and they’d go on to their second straight Super Bowl appearance. Happy days.

  1. What do you do when #26 of the Cowboys runs up to interject the Skins players after the touchdown? How about a group high-five???? How about we do it surrounding the guy and jumping on top of him?? Definitely the best part! Laughed so hard when i saw this.
