All Pro Running Back Brian Westbrook Spreading Holiday Joy

All Pro Running Back Brian Westbrook Spreading Holiday Joy

Thanks to the generosity of All Pro Running Back Brian Westbrook, hundreds of local less fortunate children will enjoy holiday gifts they might not otherwise receive this year.  In an effort to double his efforts this year, Westbrook’s philanthropic arm, Brian’s Blessings will be holding two events.

Westbrook seeks to touch the lives of families who often struggle day-to-day to keep food on the table, a roof above their heads and who come under great stress during the holiday season.  With rising energy costs and a slow economy, it means that more people than ever will be depending on the generosity of others this year.  Westbrook wants to make sure no family has to make the difficult decision between heating their home, putting a hot meal on the table, or providing a little joy to their children during the holidays. 

Here come Lucy and Charlie Brown -- There Go Those Redskins Again

Here come Lucy and Charlie Brown -- There Go Those Redskins Again

Oops go the Wee-skins.

That would be Sundberg, Smith and Gano in the latest debacle, with the team down one point in the final seconds and only an extra-point attempt precluding an overtime session.

That could be a diffferent threesome channeling their version of Lucy and Charlie Brown on another Sunday.

That was the emotionally wounded Dan Turk wandering the streets of Tampa, Fla., after his botched snap sealed the playoff fate of this woebegone team in 2000.

The faces inevitability change but not the inventive element that has come to define the losing stewardship of Dan Snyder.

The Redskins do not get mad; they get creative in defeat.

And so it was on a dreary day inside the soulless bowl by the Beltway.

The Redskins squandered the most perfunctory play in football after missing two short field-goal attempts and fumbling away a kickoff.

Redskins baby Zoie's first trip to the dentist

A dental visit at an early age is a “well baby checkup” for the teeth. 

Redskins linebacker, Lorenzo Alexander, brought in his daughter Zoie to show parents how to care for their children’s teeth.  Teaching children good dental habits at a young age reduces the fear of going to the dentist and creates a lifetime of healthy smiles.
