Another Flag Football Update

Hey all,

Just wanted to give you another update on our upcoming charity flag football game. We have good news and bad news.

The good news is that Joe and I have gotten at least verbal commitments not only from the Good Samaritan Foundation (founded by former Skins Charles Mann, Art Monk, Tim Johnson, and Ernest Byner), but also former Redskin Tony McGee (and his show Redskins Journal) and the Redskins Alumni Association (Mark Mosley is the president) to be a major part of this event.

They all love the idea and think it's a clever plan we've come up with to raise money.

With this in mind though, we all have agreed to postpone the game until the spring time. This way we do it right and it gives us plenty of time to get sponsors, find a location...get in football shape.

This is something that the Good Samaritan Foundation and Redskins Alumni Association are interested in doing on a yearly basis so we want to make absolutely sure the first one is perfect. September is just too early to do that

So bottom line. The game is on and we've got some big names attached to it, but we're pushing it back to spring time.

Actually I'd prefer that. It would be a welcome football diversion in spring time.

That may work out well for some of the sponsors I have spoken with as well.

Re: Another Flag Football Update

Let me also take a quick moment to thank all of you, such as BrudLee and Redskins_P, who have been helping us to get sponsors and secure a location for us.

This is going to be a total team effort, no question about it

Re: Another Flag Football Update

Hey TAFKAS, do you guys have a Wegmans down in the DC area?? I'm from Rochester where the headquarters for the company is, and they are ussually very good about helping provide things for charitable events such as this, as long as their name is attached. If there are Wegmans in your area, it might be somthing they would consider and I could write a letter. Although if you dont ahve one, they might not be up for it. Let me know if you have one down there, becasue the headquarters is right up the street and i'd write a letter or somthin.

Thank you for the shout out TAFKAS. I'll keep you posted on the location. I'm working on it.

GMANC, I know we have one in northern VA. The location for the game will most likely be in northern VA as well, so that does sound like a good idea.

TAFKAS, what do you think?

Re: Another Flag Football Update

The more sponsors the merrier...and we DO have to eat. When Joe gets back from camp we're going to iron out some details then we'll send it to you guys to start sending out proposals

Re: Another Flag Football Update

I think this is great. It really seems like a good idea that people can get behind. Give everyone 8 or so months to plan and it will be a quality event on a yearly basis.

Re: Another Flag Football Update

I started getting in football shape yesterday. I drank a 12 pack, ate hotwings and started yelling at the TV. Only this year I'm going to have to change my regiment. Instead of yelling at the TV I started to pratice singing Hail To The Redskins.

I'm drinking hard liquor in an attempt to get back down to 175.

Re: Another Flag Football Update

that's the great thing about being a fat guy...i'm already in football shape! although i could stand to eat some more wings and yell at the TV some more. It's not the same yelling at a baseball game...

sounds like a plan fellas. have all fall/winter to practice and prepare for a spring game.

There are 2 Wegmans in the NoVA area...one in Fairfax and one out by Dulles. Those stores are awesome.

I may be able to get a sponsor or 2, if need be...
