About a month ago my world was shattered when I found out my favorite all-time wrestler, Shawn Michaels, was in fact a Dallas Cowboy fan.

I know, I know, it's devastating to say the least.  How could a man so great, root for a team that represents everything wrong in the world?

Well my spirits were uplifted yesterday as I was sitting in traffic looking through Twitter (don't worry, I wasn't driving).

Washington Redskins return man Brandon Banks tweeted this from Miami:

"Just meet the undertaker!! Lol and he knew who I was before I knew who he was!! He is a big redskins fan!!!! That's a huge dude"

How awesome is that?  The man with the most prestigious streak, 18-0 at Wrestlemania (yeah I said it, suck it Favre), is a big Redskins fan.

Shoot, he'd have to be if he was able to recognize Brandon Banks.  I'm a huge fan as well and if I saw Banks just on the street I'd have hard time realizing it was him, let alone seeing him away from Washington D.C.

So Dallas can keep Shawn Michaels, we have the Dead Man who retired him.

Go Taker, and Hail to the Redskins!
