The Legacy

In case you haven’t noticed from following my site, I’m a huge Redskins fan. I have over 30 years invested in them and I’m proud of the history of the franchise. One of the reasons I write about the players birthdays is that it gives me (and hopefully you) a chance to remember the players who have suited up in the burgandy and gold.

I received an email today from the Redskins promoting a TV show coming up this weekend called “The Legacy.” Living here in Florida I’m going to miss it, but if your in the DC metro area…it sounds like a must see. Here is a short preview of the show along with the description of it. One last thing, SOMEBODY TIVO THIS FOR ME so I can see it when I visit next month, thanks!

The Legacy Saturday, July 25th 7 p.m. NBC-4

The bronze statues enshrined in Canton represent the best of a player’s on the field accomplishments. However there is more to a Hall of Famer than simply statistics and awards. There is a story of blood, sweat and years of determination that help create a legend. That story is the story told in the newest Redskins documentary, The Legacy.

From Slingin’ Sammy Baugh to Art Monk and Darrell Green, The Legacy explores the history of the Redskins through the prism of the team’s greatest players, the Redskins Hall of Famers. With 17 Hall of Famers including Joe Gibbs, John Riggins and Sonny Jurgensen, The Legacy will highlight how these players and coaches rose to greatness and earned their enshrinement in the National Football Hall of Fame.

The Legacy, from the Emmy award-winning Redskins Broadcast Network, premieres on Saturday July 25 at 7 p.m. on NBC-4.

Cheers and Hail
