What I'm Seeing Now

Redskins Game Visit

Scoring some really good tickets to the final Redskin pre-season game, we arrived early enough to see some warm ups and have a nice meal.

Only the "older" set would wear the Number 9.

That is former quarterback Sonny Jurgensen's jersey and number.

The first team did not play.

The second (and/or third) team played reasonably well.

The team looked much sharper, to me, than in past years at this time.

There will have to be some difficult decisions to be made.

And we had a lot of fun!

We'll see how the season goes!

Oh, the Redskins won, 30 - 3.
