Hip. Hip. Cheerio.

After last week's game, Redskins coach Jim Zorn got his players to join him in a team cheer, of sorts.  He had them say "Hooray" when he said "Hip Hip"....now this is a very old British tradition of three cheers for a job well done.
His players thought he was, well, hip, and thought it was cool that he was using a Naughty By Nature rap song to cheer them on.  You know, that's old school rap and all.
They were surprised to learn later that he was not hip, and was instead harkening back to the 1800s for a cheer.  Now, that's OLD school.
