I was born and lived in Frederick, MD, for the first 5 years of my life. I remember a few details like a blizzard the winter before I moved. I moved to Tennessee and grew up right outside Memphis. Most people there were St. Louis fans due to it being the nearest team, until the Titans came. I always remember watching two teams. The Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers, my dad grew up outside Pittsburgh. I came to fall in love with the Redskins because my mom is a fan and it was my hometown team and I've never looked back.
My family moved back to the D.C. area in 2005. 3 years ago I had the chance to take my mom to her first Redskins game. We got all the perks, free buffet, access to the field pregame, and club level tickets near midfield. It was extra special because a month before the game my mom found out she had breast cancer. It was the best Christmas present I could give her and it was a great time and let her forget about her cancer and just enjoy herself. It was to bad the Redskins lost that game but we had a great time. I have to thank Hogs Haven though because I actually won the tickets from them.
So that's why I'm a Redskins fan. My Mom.
