DC Sports

Yesterday was a unique day in Washington DC sports history as not only was it the Championship Parade for the Capitals, who brought home the Stanley Cup, but also out at Redskins Park they finally honored the replacement players who in 1987 during the strike won all three game and help put the team on the path to the Super Bowl. The Scab-skins were featured in an ESPN 30 for 30, one of the best series that ESPN has had on in ages. It was this documentary The Year of the Scab which really brought the story to a front this past year, it was the 30th anniversary last season and it was a nice gesture for a team that seemed to just take too long to happen. Congrats to all those celebrating, hope that it doesn’t take years for the next one.
