I reckon the Washington Redskins are going to need a new fight song to go along with their new name, now This pisses me off.
I’m an 80’s kid, and Joe Theismann (originally pronounced, Thees-man, before changing it to, Thighs-man, just so it would rhyme with, Heisman…as in, the Heisman Trophey…which he didn’t win) was my idol. I had his jersey and everything. And, oh my God when Lawrence Taylor broke his leg…. my tiny little 4 year old heart broke into tiny little pieces. My hero was done, forever. I still wore his jersey, though.
I clearly remember hearing “Hail To The Redskins” playing during the football games. Hell, I remember hearing it on the radio. I sang along like a real badass, too. I still sing along to it, and sometimes I’ll even do a little solo act when the spirit moves me.
So, what happens now? I guess with this new name change, I’ll never hear it again. Glad that’s been ripped away. *sarcasm*
