Spotted werefootball greats and fans Joe Theismann, Sonny Jurgensen, Art Monk, Bobby Mitchell, DarrellGreen, Monte Coleman, Joe Washington, former head coach Joe Gibbs, Virginia SenatorGeorge Allen (son of Hall of Fame coach George Allen), and Jim Kimsey, but veryfew current players, who were resting up for Sunday's game. Gary Clark and Ken Houston(two of the 70 Greatest Redskins) were delayed at the airport, causing them to arrive at theMarriott Wardman Park Hotel about three hours late, wearing sweatshirts and jeans, optingto leave their luggage and tuxes at the airport for the sake of time. They received hugeovations when introduced by Emcee Trey Wingo of ESPN, about 45 minutes after the rest of the70 Greatest had been introduced. The $750 ticket price included entertainment from Arliss actorRobert Wuhl, an impressive laser light show, and an inspiring NFL Redskins highlight filmfilled with tackles and touchdowns from the last 70 years. 1.5 million was raised for theteam's Leadership Council Youth Development Program.
