What Is on Much of Greater Washington's Mind Today

By James Fallows

Yes, the Nationals bandwagon is truly exciting, especially after the decades of misery with ill-managed laughingstock local pro sports franchises. Thanks, Dan Snyder! Thanks, Peter Angelos! And I understand that the Olympics are still underway, plus all this politics stuff.

But for many people in the DC area, the real drama begins this evening, in Buffalo, in Game I of the Age of RGIII. I have no idea who "Rev Redskin," the guy in the robes in the video below, really is, but he is great, and he expresses one important part of the regional id.



Naturally we'll be watching to see whether local favorite Chris Cooley is back in shape to be on the other end of RGIII deliveries. Thanks to TAJF for the tip.
