The Washington Redskins lost to the Buccaneers Sunday 17-16 to fall to 5-8 on the season. If it weren’t for a mistake by the chain gang late in the game that cost Doc Brown in his Top 3, they would have lost 17-9, but I digress. The team is competitive but not good, and the frustration is manifested through not only the fans and players, but also the team sponsors.
Apparently Papa John’s has been running a promotion all season where they offer free toppings on pizzas the day after Redskins games. Fans get one free topping for every touchdown the Skins score and two free toppings if they win.
Sounds like a great deal, right?
If this were a promotion for the Patriots, you’d see fans loading up with six-topping pizzas every Monday, but not the case with Washington. They’ve been so bad lately they’re only earning one or two toppings per week, not exactly the type of promotion that gets people jumping out of their La-Z-Boys to search for the number to Papa John’s.
The pizza company was so sick of the team’s crappiness, they just decided to give away 10 free toppings this week and attributed the occasion to Ryan Torain’s 121 first quarter rushing yards. Don’t ask me how you get 10 toppings out of 121, but clearly they were desperate for something because the Skins had not been cooperating on the field. I suppose it’s only justice for all the awful commercials Papa John’s we’re forced to endure.
