If you only have a passing interest in football, you might be forgiven for thinking the Washington Redskins play in Washington state. But if you are the NFL itself, you should probably know better.
Which makes this vanity plate, briefly for sale in the NFL's official online store, absolutely hilarious:
As The Washington Post's Dan Steinberg so calmly puts it: "HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A PLACE CALLED WASHINGTON, D.C.? TURNS OUT IT IS THE CAPITAL OF THIS COUNTRY WEIRD RIGHT? AND IT ISN'T ACTUALLY IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THERE'S A DIFFERENT TEAM THAT PLAYS IN THAT STATE, AND REDSKINS FANS HATE THAT TEAM. ALSO GO TO GEOGRAPHY CLASS OR WHATEVER."
The Redskins, for whatever it's even worth at this point, play in Maryland.
