Nice Guys Recognized

I wouldn't be a DC blogger if I didn't dip into stories about our beloved 'skins from time to time. And today is one of those times. Two of the city's favorite sons were voted into the Football Hall of Fame yesterday. Darrell Green and Art Monk. Both were fabulous players, and both have spent their post-football years with projects aimed at helping people who live in the city.

Darrell Green's Youth Life Foundation helps underprivileged children to improve their learning skills. Monk teamed up with another ex 'skin, Charles Mann to run the Good Samaritan Foundation, which feeds the poor and also helps children with learning. Both guys (as well as Mann and several other ex-skins) continue to make great contributions to the city, and continue to make us proud of them day after day.

Congratulations to both of them!
