Just 2 days after he was drafted by the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin III made his way to the nation’s capital. There were reportedly 19,000 people waiting to welcome him. I was one of them. We arrived to Fed Ex Field 3o minutes prior to the start of the Washington Redskins Draft Party and joined a sea of burgundy and gold clad fans! Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, people from all walks of life were out there ready to celebrate the Redskins.
Before taking the field for the RGIII press conference, I attended the Draft Party event hosted by the Women of Washington (WOW) Redskins. WOW Redskins is a fan club just for the ladies. Boy, did I have a great time! Not only did I get a chance to network with some incredibly wonderful, football savvy ladies; but I also met a few Washington Redskins. My favorite of the bunch was Ryan Kerrigan, last year’s 1st round pick of the Redskins.
