At first I thought it was obnoxious and then I heard the supportive yells from the distance. Can't wait to do it again tomorrow.
I was at a wedding last week. Half the party missed the bride dance with her father because we were in the hotel lobby watching the end of the game. When Washington made that last INT we all busted into "HTTR" and proceeded to drink until the wee hours of the morning.

Since I was in the wedding party and forced to wear a tux as opposed to my Monk jersey and hat, I will be wearing a tux again tomorrow afternoon.

Re: Wearing Your Redskins Gear?

I dont wear gear. The players only wear it when they are at official team functions because they are getting paid to wear it, so since no team is paying me to wear gear I make like a player and dress like an adult.

Because you're a "fan"?

Players are players, fans are fans.

Re: Wearing Your Redskins Gear?

I am a fan but I dont see what one has to do with the other. Like I said, when actual team members wont "gear up" on the streets the only reason I can think non-team members would is to in some way pretend they are part of the team. I know I am not on the team and nothing I say or do matters one whit to the team so I'll dress like an adult instead of a wanna-be player.

Its not about being a wanna be player. Its about representing your team with pride. C'mon we're all adults and we realize we're not part of the team, but that doesn't mean I'm not going buy gear and show my pride. Actual team members don't gear up because they wear their gear all week in practice and game day.

We're not part of the team, but we represent a big part of it. I don't think I'm part of the team, and I'm not a wanna be player. I'm an adult who loves the skins and will show it all day long.

You must think you are part of the team because you call it your team and you believe you represent it in some respect. Having been friends & neighbors with a few NFL players I can tell you how funny they think that kind of talk is. They think its hillarious.

Like I said I don't think I'm part of the team. Since you've been friends and neighbors with NFL players I guess you're right anyways. I guess we'll agree to disagree.

Don't pay any attention to Irish, he's obviously bitter and broken. People wear their gear to support their favorite teams, they don't think they are part of the team, just huge supporters. There is no reason for you to act like you're better than all of us and try to belittle the guys that are having fun. Take your grumpiness some where else!!!

Re: Wearing Your Redskins Gear?

I'm not trying to belittle anyone. The thread asked what gear I wear and I answered what and why. I also passed along a story about what players I had come to become friends with thought of people who geared up for games. I suspect I'll have as much fun as anyone tomorrow rooting for the skins while partying with my buddies at my house.

Im sure Arrington thinks its hilarious to look into the stands and see his jersey on just about 50% of the fans there. Im sure he really laughs out loud. What? Hell no, he loves it. So in your mind, when we all go to games we should wear anything but redskins jersey? Thats idiotic. You go on and not wear your gear.
We all wear our gear as a sense of pride among other people. It has absolutely nothing to do with people wanting to be players.

Just curious how you know LA loves it.

A sense of pride about what?

I doubt LA laughs but I also doubt he gives it a second thought.
