Best Pigskins Fan

Marion Barry
Did anything emote more than Marion Barry’s Twitter account this football season? When the Pigskins were 3-6, do you think anyone associated with the team really thought they were headed to the playoffs? The players and coaches were probably making vacation plans while Dan Snyder looked for a small newspaper to sue. But there was one true believer: Marion Barry, who steadfastly proclaimed the ’Skins were postseason-bound, even when the team was at its worst. “I do think we’re gonna at least get to the playoffs. I think that’s realistic,” Barry said in an early-season radio interview. Of course, boosterism can’t take you all the way: Barry also predicted the ’Skins were headed to the Super Bowl.
