It's been a long season already for the Washington Redskins, and there haven't really been many bright spots. One of the few players who shows up every week, and makes the games somewhat enjoyable has been Ryan Kerrigan. RyKer has been consistently getting to the QB since being drafted in the 1st round of the 2011 draft. This season Kerrigan started doing the best sack celebration in the league, and kicked it off during his 4 sack game against the Jaguars in Week 2. Since that game, he's done it 4.5 more times, and a few more on top that were called back. Kerrigan explained the origins of the "Heartbreak Kerrigan":
"[Redskins linebacker] Will Compton has been kind of getting in my ear for a while to do the Shawn Michaels from wrestling - the HBK," Kerrigan said. "All he kept saying was, ‘Hit the HBK, hit the HBK.' Finally, I did right by him and hit the HBK a couple times. On the second and third ones, when I didn't do it, he was giving me a bunch of hell on the sidelines, like, ‘Why didn't you do it? You need to trademark it.' I'm like, ‘Well, I can't trademark it, it's HBK.' But that's where it came from. You guys can thank Will Compton for the motivation for that one."
Our friends at BreakingT have immortalized the Heartbreak Kerrigan into a fantastic T-Shirt that is being released this week, and to kick it off they have offered two shirts to give away to two lucky Hogs Haven members.
So what do you need to win one of these shirts? It's simple. Just tell me a story about why Ryan Kerrigan is screaming in this commercial from a few years ago. The best, funniest, most original 2 answers will win one of the T-Shirts and have bragging rights until the next contest. Entries will be accepted until Saturday, 11/29/2014 at 11:59PM and the winners will be announced by Monday, 12/1/14.
If you really need the shirt and can't wait that long, the "Heartbreak Kerrigan" shirts are currently available for sale here.
