Thursday, October 9: Player’s POV – Casey On the Bus

Let me get the bad news (at least for some of you) out of the way first: I won’t be at practice today, so there won’t be a practice update on the blog. Sorry about this, but don’t panic, it’s not the start of a trend or anything like that.

The good news is that I’ve finally managed to get the technical difficulties with center Casey Rabach’s road footage sorted out, so you get to start seeing that stuff.

This first clip is Rabach leaving Redskins Park to board the bus for Dallas. Remember, this was a little while ago, so his references to the then-hot Milwaukee Brewers made sense at the time. For everyone who has asked what the buses look like, here you go. Rabach is behind the camera, so you can blame him for the more Blair Witchy moments of camera shake.

And, to head off the inevitable question, the seat I’m advised not to sit in belongs to Jon Jansen.

  1. BLAH!

  2. Hello Redskins Nation.

    We are very excited to have the team come home after winning two NFC East road games against the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. HAIL!

    This week we have the St. Louis Rams, and this will not be an easy game, especially if we want to maintain our growth and standing the NFC East, the NFC conference, and the league.

    We are the only team in the NFL with a battle cry (Hail to the Redskins!). And now we are the only team in the NFL with a post-game celebrate chant thanks to our new Head Coach Jim Zorn (Hip-Hip Hooray!).

    After beating the Dallas Cowboys, the supposedly best team in the NFL, Jim Zorn in the locker led the team in a celebration chat of Hip-Hip Hooray. It would be exciting to have the entire stadium, and the Redskins Nation, join the team in the celebration chant before they head to the locker room.

    My brother and I are organizing the first Hip-Hip Hooray celebration chant this Sunday after our team beats the St. Louis Rams at the stadium. If it is clear at the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter that the Washington Redskins will win the game we ask that all Redskins fans in the stadium (we will be at the game in Section 424—Row 12—Seats 7, 8 & 9) to join us in a celebration chant of Hip-Hip Hooray!

    If it is not clear by the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter that we will win the game then we will start the chant 30 seconds later at 1:30 minute mark. If not then, then 30 second later at the 1:00 minute mark. If not then, then 30 seconds later at the 30 second mark.

    You get the pattern. At some point at the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter or after we want to do the chant if it is clear we will win the game. We do not want to do the chant before the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter!

    To make it easy for everyone to participate for the first time we asking that the entire stadium join together in the Hip-Hip Hooray chant in unison. And yes brings to celebrate.

    If we are successful in getting fans to join in after the game this week, then we will organize the second chant with sections of the stadium doing the call (Hip-Hip) and the other sections doing the response (Hooray!).

    We hope this celebration chant will become a tradition for Redskins fans attending the game after each victory.

    Please join us this Sunday for a big Hip-Hip Hooray, after we win the game.
