Redskins fans will face longer training camp trip in 2013
Team set to move practices from Ashburn to Richmond next summer
Question of the Day
Lewis was in grade school in Fairfax County when Joe Theismann led the Washington Redskins to a Super Bowl victory in 1982. Two years ago, Lewis, his father and Jackson watched as the Redskins beat the New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium in the preseason, 16-11. After the game, the three got to go down on the field.
“I think we floated home,” Norm Beatty said. “We did not drive, we floated. As we will tonight.”
The Beattys pulled out of their driveway at 7 a.m. Monday. It would be almost 10 p.m. before they arrived back home. Next year, when the Redskins begin training in Richmond, the Beattys might be forced to spread the annual trip over two days.
Regardless of the change of venue, they plan to be right back on the sideline for 2013 training camp. Next year, the pilgrimage will just take a little bit longer.
“It’s one of my favorite things to do all year,” Lewis said. “It is [a long day]. But it’s worth it.”
