When It Comes To The Redskins I Have Plenty To Be Thankful For

Sometimes, although not intentional…I believe that my site gives off negative vibes towards the Redskins. I guess the 13 wins and 29 losses over the past 3 seasons have contributed to the negativity. The truth is I love the Redskins more than most things in life and they’ve given me many things to be thankful for over the last 30+ years.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you my list of Redskins related things that I’m thankful for…in chronological order from when I was a kid until now.
