WOW Hosts Exclusive Chalk Talk Event with Coach Mike Shanahan!

05.30.2013 / Blog Posts Events Redskins

One-hundred WOW members came out to Redskins Park on the evening of Wednesday, May 29th for an exclusive event featuring Head Coach Mike Shanahan.

Upon arrival, burgundy and gold clad ladies were treated to complimentary glasses of wine and hors d’oeuvres before the show started in the team auditorium with a video featuring 2012 season highlights, player bloopers, and a special message from Robert Griffin III. 

Redskins Broadcast Network’s very own Larry Michael kicked off the Chalk Talk officially and set the stage for the evening’s special guest, Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan.

Members in attendance proved that women have made their mark in the football world as they showcased exceptional knowledge on the team and game strategies during the Q&A session.

Coach Shanahan addressed questions on a range of topics - from the offseason progression of players and depth in the secondary, to thoughts on Richmond training camp and what he bought RGIII for his wedding gift!

Shanahan also spoke on the importance of work ethic –not just talent – from both team personnel and players. He commented on the importance of looking for individuals who possess passion, desire, and love for what they do in creating a successful franchise -- as well as making decisions based on what is best for the team.

Aside from the positive reports on the team, there were also moments of laughter; such as the comment on the debatable Dallas-colored suit choice to Coach's speculation that one WOW member had been hanging around his wife based on her tricky questions!

Following the hour-long Chalk Talk and Q&A session, members were able to tour the team's practice facility, including a walk through the team weight room, Redskins.com TV Studio, training room, and the Washington Redskins history wall highlighting momentous occasions and players throughout the club’s existence.

The ladies in attendance were undoubtedly excited to take part in a behind-the-scenes showcase of the team’s efforts during the offseason, and it was wonderful to see a personable and entertaining Coach Shanahan off the football field (and looking sharp!). 

Thanks to all the WOW members who came out and we look forward to seeing everyone at our next event!
