HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!

Introducing:  Beth Auckland, Official Reporter Washington Redskins // @bauckland

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!  Between the months of July and January every year, this is my motto, an everyday utterance that is echoed by people around the world.  Why?  And just who am I that this simple four word phrase has such meaning to me?  Well, that’s easy……

It all started on Friday, when they each landed in Kansas City, after at least half a day or more of travel from the UK.  The unusually warm weather was as if they had ordered it so they could get the most out of every second they were here.

Right off, many of them began their BBQ odyssey, starting at Char Bar in Westport, which has a great outside patio.  Saturday, they toured the National WW1 museum and Liberty Memorial.  Several of them also made their way to see the lovely architecture of Union Station, and ambled around a bit in town.   Continue reading “Chief Fans Get A New Perspective from UK”
