Washington state and Washington, D.C. are two different places. In fact, they are nowhere close to each other.
However, NFL Shop apparently forgot to consult its map when it made an embarrassing mistake with its “State Pride” licence plates.
The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg wrote an article Monday morning examining the new licence plates available via NFL Shop, and there was a pretty blatant problem with the Washington Redskins’ option.
Oh no, NFL Shop. The Redskins actually play at FedEx Field in Maryland, and “Washington” refers Washington D.C., not the state on the other side of the country.
If you search for the special license plates on NFL Shop, it appears the Redskins’ plate has been taken down, for obvious reasons. But the internet never forgets.
