Monday, August 11: Redskins Parking Lot

The Redskins Rides car show was held at Redskins Park yesterday, and it was a lively affair. I think it would be fascinating to watch an event like this from above — the groups of autograph seekers flowing toward players would look like flocks of birds. For example, watching the group of people form as Laron Landry emerged from this pale blue Lamborghini…

…and then converge on the enormous Ford F-650 he got into…

…was like watching some kind of Imax nature film.

For those of you who have been curious about the players’ cars, several were on display with the jersey numbers attached to the windshields.

Here are a few.

It was a fun, light-hearted day, as you’d expect from a car show involving the guys who made these commercials.

Even at these sort of events, people here take the time to remember the late Sean Taylor. In the crowded parking lot, filled beyond capacity with display cars and and concession stands, his space remained vacant, scattered with flowers in tribute.
