With the Washington football team's seemingly imminent name change, one that could be coming in the next few days, anticipation for the new name is at an all-time high.
So when defensive tackle Jonathan Allen randomly sent a tweet saying simply "httr," it sent Washington Twitter into a bit of a frenzy.
Httr!— Jonathan Allen (@jonallen93_) July 12, 2020
Fans began to speculate whether the team's new name will begin with an "R" as well or if Allen had inside information.
All of the following are replies to Allen tweeting four letters.
"You know something we don't?"
"Howl to the Redwolves."
"It's the Revolution."
An odd tweet, with odd timing and certainly with its fair share of odd replies.
Washington could certainly adopt Redwolves as their new name and substitute it in where it's soon-to-be old name was in hashtags, rallying cries and fight songs. They could even adopt new traditions like howling during games, which was Smoot's idea of course.
Nobody knows what the new name will be, so speculation storms like this are prone to happen until the people get their answer. If this was Allen's goal all along, I think it's safe to say he accomplished it.
