Chris Bonner and Kevin Hughes of Centreville, Va., came out to Redskins Park today to show their support for the Redskins, braving cold temps in an effort to catch a glimpse of their favorite players.
It was 12 degrees out Wednesday morning when Chris Bonner and Kevin Hughes of Centreville, Va., braved the elements to come out to cheer on their favorite team outside of its team facility at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.
Bonner and Hughes, both 22, describe themselves as lifelong Redskins fans. Donning Redskins gear and two handmade signs, the pair decided to spend their days off from work on Wednesday to show support for their team.
"He wrote these signs last night, sent me a text, said 'You want to go stand at Redskins Park?'" Hughes said of Chris. "And I said, 'Sure, why not?"
Not deterred by the below-freezing temperatures, the two friends planned on spending the day outside the team's practice facility until they could catch a glimpse of their favorite players, quarterback Kirk Cousins and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.
The pair's ultimate dream would be to attend Sunday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. As of right now , however, the two plan on watching the game on Bonner's back patio.
While Bonner hasn't been to any games this season, Hughes counts one of his all-time favorite Redskins memories as watching the Redskins come back from a 24-0 deficit to defeat the Buccaneers earlier this season.
Both were born in 1992 and have yet to see a Redskins Super Bowl during their lifetimes. Both believe, however, that the Redskins "have a shot" at the title this year.
