I’ve been searching and digging and dying for something to write about tonight’s game, but really, there’s not much left to be said. It’s obviously a big game, I’m incredibly excited for it, and god dammit, I hope Santana is able to go, but with the outcome of an event much, much larger looming about 24 hours from kick-off, this game has taken on a different feel. Maybe that’s what people call “perspective.” I don’t know. I do know I’m thankful for the temporary distraction from the race to 270, (save for Berman’s hard-hitting halftime interviews).
Oh, and I’m thankful for this:
Has it finally happened? Word has it that the Redskins are expected to wear burgundy pants and burgundy jerseys for Monday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It would be the first time–at least in recent memory–that the team would wear burgundy on burgundy uniforms.
Players have talked about wearing burgundy on burgundy for years, and earlier this season Jim Zorn indicated it would be a possibility for cold weather games.
That’s from Redskins.com, so you’d think they could, like, walk down the hall and ask someone if it has “finally happened.” But I guess we shall find out soon enough. In the meantime, please feel free to pepper the comments with your thoughts before, during and after the game. We’ll be back with the real Winners & Losers post sometime tomorrow morning.
UPDATE: It’s official, they will wear the all burgundy.
