QUESTION: Hello Jim,

I know this isn't exactly a football question, but, I'm hoping you will be able to assist me in finding out when/where auditions will take place to sing the National Anthem for the upcoming 2013 Washington Redskins season.  After the National Anthem 'fiasco' from the recent Inauguration, I am more inspired/compelled to sing the National Anthem with utmost dignity and pride.

Thank you for your kind help.

ANSWER: Edith,

I would suggest that you send the Redskins a letter.  Don'ts end an email, as they are far too easy to delete.

Send the letter to the

Public Relations Department
21300 Redskin Park Drive
Ashburn, VA 20147

Best wishes,

QUESTION: Years ago, some of my siblings and I auditioned to sing the National Anthem @ 2000.   The gentleman in charge of the auditions was named Billy ? and his last name began with a 'B', but I can't recall what Billy's last name is.  

Can you tell me Billy's full name so I can better address my letter regarding National Anthem auditions for the 2013 Redskins football season?  

Thank you so very much:)


I would bet the ranch that this gentleman is no longer with the Redskins.  Daniel Snyder places very little value on the Public Relations function of his football team.  He fires the extraneous football staff every couple of years whether they need to go or not.
If you don't score touchdowns, he has little use for you on his payroll.

I can answer statistical questions about professional football played in the United States. I am especially strong on the subject of the Baltimore Colts from 1947 through 1983, Washington Redskins, and the Baltimore Ravens. My services are best used when an older, obscure question is posed. The newer NFL records are easily accessible through I do not appraise memorabilia. I am not an expert on Canadian Football, though I will take a shot at any questions you might pose. The subject of my expertise pertains to "American Football", as opposed to "Futball" or the game we refer to in the USA as soccer. --------------------------------------------------------- I have a good understanding and recall of the folklore about Baltimore football. Some of this information may be subjective in nature. I will give the best answer possible if this is the case.


I am an NFL Statistician with the Washington Redskins. I grew up during the days of the Baltimore Colts in the 1960's. (Please refer to the movie "Diner" for more information about the Baltimore Colts fans)

The records were used by author Jon Morgan in his book, "Glory For Sale". The records have been part of the Baltimore Ravens Media Guides since their inaugural season in 1996. I was interviewed for the cover story of The Press Box, a local, monthly sports tabloid newspaper.

I researched and was able to piece together the statistical history of the AAFC Baltimore Colts 1947-49, and the 1950 NFL Colts. This information was used by The Baltimore Ravens for their 1996 Media Guide. The records were entitled "Baltimore Football Records". It was considered "unofficial" since the AAFC league records were not incorporated with the NFL records when the leagues merged. The reason that this information was created was due to the fact that the NFL had prohibited the 1996 Baltimore Ravens from bringing the records, colors, and team name from the Cleveland Browns. The Baltimore football records were presented in order to create a frame of reference. The Ravens have kept these records since 1996, adding and amending as the Ravens football team challenge these records.

Awards and Honors
I was awarded two game balls from the Ravens and was recognized for my work as the top game day employee.
