Hi everyone -

Note - This may not go over well.

Until recently, I had been a Redskins fan since I was about 8 years old. I was born in 1983, so I wasn't making memories when the Baltimore Colts were still around. I guess I was a bandwagon fan since I became a Redskins fan following Super Bowl 26.

I moved to Baltimore in 2001, when I started college in the area. I still live in the Baltimore area to this day.

I have several reasons for wanting to become a Redskins fan. I love the area in which I live, and would like to fully embrace the community and its teams. Also, I have a two year old son. I'd love to be able to take him to games that are 20 minutes from home, rather than spending a day getting to and from the factory of sadness in Landover. The Redskins being a long-time terrible football team and franchise is fairly low on my list.

FYI, not looking to be a dual fan. I want to embrace the Ravens as my one-and-only team. Would Ravens Nation accept such a convert?

I look forward to hearing your replies. Thanks!
