Redskins Halftime Show Offensive?

The loss to San Francisco isn’t the only thing fans are fired up about. It’s what happened during halftime that triggered a twitter war.

During the game, the team acknowledged the history of the Navajo Code Talkers as part of Native American Heritage month. They are the brave men who helped save thousands of American lives during WWII with their code and language skills.
Four of them were honored on the field. The stadium embraced them… after all they are heroes and deserve it. Although, it’s Native American Heritage Month.. the timing of the tribute came under fire online immediately. Most people accusing the Redskins of using the code talkers as props in the ongoing name change controversy.
Shortly after the game.. the Redskins posted this tribute video to the code talkers. It features pictures, President Obama and one of the Navajo Code Talkers saying “Hail to the Redskins.”
The backlash so far.. has been big. There have been supporters however who believe that this was a great way to honor our heroes.

The Junkies

Whew! That’s what I said when my in-studio visit with the Sports Junkies was over. I had heard horror but funny stories from previous gal pals who were guests. In the end actually thought the guys: EB, JP, Lurch and Cakes were true gentlemen (attractive too).  I learned that dandruff is still a big problem and I dig accents from Baltimore. All in all it was a ton of fun and I’m thankful for the invite. It was also nice to see Mike Wise stop in to during the show. Special thanks to Executive Producer Bret and WUSA photographer Kevin King. Did you miss it? Now worries… check out their podcast which includes both segments. Tune in to the WUSA9 Morning Show Tuesday to see a recap of the visit.
