Redskins’ Lombardi trophies coming to the Science Museum

The trophies are just one part of how the Science Museum is embracing its newest neighbors.

Three Lombardi trophies that commemorate the Washington Redskins’ Super Bowl victories will be on display at the Science Museum of Virginia beginning July 30th.

Located next to the Redskins’ new summer training facility, the Science Museum will also offer a “football science” exhibit wherein visitors can better throw an offensive pattern after learning about gyroscopic stability and vector analysis. Visitors can also experience how Newton’s Laws of Motion can improve their time at the 40-yard dash.

Visitors will also be able to compare their mental abilities to professional football players by taking the Wonderlic test.

The “football science” activities are an outcrop of the museum’s latest permanent exhibit, Boost!

    This reads as satire. I’d laugh if it wasn’t so sad. What a disgusting Pigskins themed tie-in. And really: “Visitors will also be able to compare their mental abilities to professional football players.” Really?

    Someone needs to lighten up.

    Perhaps there should be an exhibit on the science of traumatic brain injury.

    I don’t know what Lombardi trophies have to do with science- My 2¢
