Serenity Now! The Washington Football Team's No Good Very Bad Day
When it comes to playing Washington, the Minnesota Vikings have the best home field advantage in the NFL. On Sunday an estimated 5,000 people descended on TCF Stadium, and again at a rally at the University oof Minnesota, to protest Washington's nickname -- the largest Native American protest ever.
Then, this happened:

Two Washington team buses collided, one with Robert Griffin III in the front seat. Quote: "I thought I was going through the front windshield." I've always advocated a seatbelt for RGIII, but never before away from the playing field. There were no actual injuries on the buses.
Then of course the Vikings won the game, 29-26.

You may recall that in 2013 when Washington played at Minnesota, there was another huge rally protesting the Washington nickname that was held outside the Metrodome, and at University of Minnesota. This year, protesters from at least 10 states were on hand.
Now picturing Daniel Snyder dropping about 12 antacids into a glass of water, one by one.
