This week is "Redskins Hispanic Heritage Week," and the Redskins have altered one of there most beloved traditions to help make some of their fans of Hispanic heritage feel a little more comfortable at FedEx Field. According to Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog, the Redskins have introduced the song "Viva Los Redskins" which is a Spanish-language version of the iconic "Hail to the Redskins." You can listen to the song through that link. Thoughts after the jump.
To be honest, it's kind of catchy. Like Steinberg, I don't have the same connection to the song as some of you might, but in terms of a pretty literal translation, I think I kind of like it. To be honest, I think it sort of depends on how much they play it during the game on Sunday. If they play it a couple times, that will be cool. But if they play it every opportunity they have to play "Hail" then maybe it might start to wear on me. But then again, that means that the Redskins will have scored a lot, so I think I'll accept it after all.
