I always thought it was kind of odd that a Redskins fan would talk smack to any other fan about homosexuality when their most famous fans cross dress as female pigs in dresses. I love irony, but the true irony is if they consider Tony Romo’s name to be tragic in some way because of a 6th grade nursery school rhyme then they really don’t even know their own team’s History. What I mean by this is the Redskins seem to own the market on tragic names for football players. Allow me to introduce you to three names from their past.
In 1963 the Redskins drafted a LB named Harry Butsko. I don’t know about you, but if my last name is Butsko, the last thing in the world I want my parents to name me is Harry. You gotta know this kid was the butt of a lot of jokes. Pun intended. You almost got to consider his name to be child abuse. I thought, that has to be the worst in NFL History. No it wasn’t. Not even close.
Later I stumbled across a 2nd tragic name. He was a Center drafted by the Redskins in the 1953 Draft. Though he never played for them, and his name is really a nickname it is still hilarious. The player’s name was Buzz Nutter. No, I am not joking. The Redskins drafted a player whose name reminds you of shaved male genitalia. I couldn’t breathe when I first saw the name. Surely this name really was the worst in NFL History. No, it wasn’t. If you have food or drinks in your mouth, you should probably finish swallowing before you spit them all over your monitor.
In 1964 the Redskins drafted a QB in the 7th round. A QB whose very name is literally the epitome of tragic. To make a joke about our QB they have to change a letter in his name. No such juvenile tactic is required for the name of one of their QBs. You see, in 1964 the Redskins drafted a QB named Dick Shiner. No I am not joking. Apparently neither were his parents when they gave him that name. You see, not only does he possess the most tragic name of all time, he is a Junior. It was also his Dad’s name. He went to school at Maryland. They can’t even pawn him off on another state.
So the next time a Redskins fan wants to tell you about your QB, Tony Homo; tell them about how one of their QBs had a name right out of their own homophobic nightmares. Maybe that’s why those guys wear dresses. I really love irony. Hey, I told you their smack talk on these subjects was weak because it showed they don’t know squat about their own team. “And now you know…….the rest of the story. Paul Harvey……good day.”
