Dallas Week & the reason we love our Skins

This Dallas week has a little more, well, A LOT MORE, flare than any I can remember. I spent the Christmas Holiday with my mother & sister who are both die-hard Skins fans like myself, just talking about the Skins & how much we hate Dallas & can't believe they won all of those overtime games. Trying to explain to both of them why we lose the tie breaker was fun too.

Spending the holiday with family & talking about our Skins in position to make the playoffs was a nice surprise, but beating Dallas to do it, well, that's about as Redskin as it gets. Skinsmania runs pretty deep in my family, we are from northern VA but some of us are in SE TX & SW LA, the rest are still in northern VA. We all represent the Skins with apparel, car magnets, & a little trash talk during every Dallas week.

I thought it would be interesting to see how we became Skins fans. My late father was a Skins fan through & through. I grew up a Riggo fan and my dad would do the "crank up that diesel" before/during the games we got to see here in TX. My father is the reason I am a Skins Fan(and mother of course). I wanted to be exactly like him when I grew up. Lets see why you are a Redskins Fan. Old school pics are the best. Just Beat Dallas, HTTR!!!
