Ian said “When I grow up I am going to play for the Redskins on tv. I am going to be a throwing back.”
My children have become Washington Redskins fans behind my back. When I turned on the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday night both kids started yelling “Go Redskins!” with no prompting.
I want to lay down the law and explain to them that in THIS house we root for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but I don’t want to quash their individualism.
I understand that the Redskins are now our home team. and I respect that. I want them to be able to think for themselves and make their own decisions.
And I suppose either way they will learn the agony of rooting for a losing team.
