Say what you will about the folks over at ExtremeSkins, the Official Message Board of the Washington Redskins -- that they're fanatical, that they're overly optimistic, that they're tough to please, that they're excellent cooks, whatever -- but there are two facts about them that are indisputable:
1) They are dedicated, enthusiastic fans of the team.
2) They are fiercely loyal -- to the team, and to each other.
It's that last loyalty -- to one another -- that's on display now, albeit for sad reasons: longtime ES member and curator of the board's Breaking News section Bubba9497 passed away.
While this is immensely sad, it has also prompted a warm-hearted and authentic outpouring of sympathy in the ExtremeSkins community, in the form of a condolences thread that currently stretches to 30 pages. And all shouting about Jason Campbell's suitability as a QB or potential trade locations for Albert Haynesworth has been stowed in favor of what's really important.
My sympathies go out to Bubba9497's family, and all his extended family at ExtremeSkins.
Note: Matt says something will be mentioned tonight on Redskins Nation as well. (Comcast SportsNet, 6 PM and 10:30 PM)
