Um, no. Next blog post, pls.
A bit of
clickbait Very Serious Journalism got perpetrated after Gov. Terry McAuliffe made an offhand comment during a radio program:
RESTON, VA -- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is aggressively courting the Washington Redskins to relocate from Maryland into Virginia -- and Reston could be at the top of the list for where a stadium would be built.Fancy dateline aside, this seems unlikely. As our BFFs at Reston Now pointed out, "there is virtually no space in Reston that could accommodate a stadium and associated parking."
McAuliffe said Reston and other nearby locations would be "great places for a new stadium," provided a deal could be worked out that would be fair to the taxpayers.
Or is there? Much like Soldier Field in Chicago, which added a modern new stadium atop its historical predecessor, we can think of a certain, vaguely beloved structure that's made of a strong enough material to handle adaptive reuse.
BOOM. Beats a bunch of townhouses built out of particleboard. And who reads any more, anyway? Although, in the spirit of Reston's historical inclusivity, we'd probably have to insist the team change its name to the Reston Live, Work, Play, and Get Involvedskins (a controversial change that would just narrowly edge out the DRB-favored Reston Goldenrodskins).
We'll be awaiting our consultant fee from a certain Mr. Snyder, the end.
