Hail to the Redskins!

Well, football is coming to a close this weekend and you’re probably thrilled to watch the commercials. Oh, and I’m sure everyone has their plans set to watch the Super Bowl too. One thing you will not be watching this Sunday is the Washington Redskins … again … #FAIL.

A generation ago, the Redskins were a good team. Yep, good enough to win the Big One, Super Bowl XXVI. By the end of the day on January 26th, 1992, the Washington Redskins, led by quarterback Mark Rypien, were world champions, defeating the Buffalo Bills 37-24.

If you want to remember what it’s like to root for a hometown team that wins the Super Bowl, watch the video below. About 20 seconds in, the Redskins close it out and beat the Bills for the championship.
