Notes From Underground: The Washington Redskins Should Change Their Name to the Washington 37ers

September 23, 2014

Just a quick note in the run up to the beginning of the Jewish New Year. A happy and healthy new year to all the readers of Notes From Underground. May your year be blessed with less turmoil both on a micro and macro level. For all my readers no matter what faith or no religious view: May we all find peace and have the wisdom and grit to prosper. Best Wishes, Yra.
