The Washington Redskins have taken a lot of criticism both in these pages and elsewhere for their disgustingly heartless attempts to collect on 72-year-old grandmother Pat Hill’s season ticket contract after the elderly real estate agent’s business went the way of the buffalo. (THANKS, ECONOMY!) Yes, she signed a contract and all, but COME ON, ‘SKINS. In fact, you could say that the ‘Skins weren’t excoriated enough as there were no kicks made to testicles, which would have totally been understandable given the circumstances.
But hark, a resolution has been agreed upon. The Redskins might hate 72-year-old grandmothers with a passion, but it turns out they like the contempt and disdain of the entire sports media even less. And so Grandma Pat is free to go bankrupt without the specter of unpaid tickets hanging over her head. Of course, the Redskins took some parting shots in the process. Because they are classy, you see.
