I got a Redskins calender for Christmas by one of my workmates. She knows that I love the Skins, so she got me the official Redskin calender.
The Cover, featuring Clinton Portis, who was let go from the team last week and the perfect symbol for the calender that truly is a train wreck. Of course he was let go, he is almost 30 (very old for a running back) and was due nearly 6 million if he wasn't cut. The Redskins marketing knew this but decided to put him on the front cover knowing that he wouldn't be on the team for the 2011-12 season. Brilliant.
So who should they put on the front cover, the most highly-paid football player in the history of the game, (Fat) Albert Haynesworth? Nawwwww, put him in January.
It gets better. Each month has a trivia question at the bottom of the page. For March the question is: Which Redskin lineman made the pro bowl four consecutive seasons beginning in 1997? The answer is Charles Mann, but of course, he played for the Redskins and made four consecutive Pro Bowls beginning in 1987.
Way to go, Danny, it seems that everything you touch turns to poop when it comes to the Redskins, the Calender being another jewel in your crown of mediocrity.
