The Washington Redskins On Twitter: A Thanksgiving Tradition

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year for family and overeating. But the role Native Americans played in the nearly 400-year-old tradition isn't glamorous. 

That's not stopping the Washington Redskins from celebrating, though.

"I'm America because that's where we are. In the garbage," Bobby Moynihan said as "Drunk Uncle" on "Saturday Night Live."

Twitter users poked fun at the Redskins' ironic tweet.

But the Redskins' Thanksgiving wishes go back years: 201420132012 (Oh hey, RGiII), 2011.

So does this mean the Redskins will change their name?

It's tradition, after all.
