Here's a word of advice: Find something that makes you as happy as Popeyes chicken makes the Washington Redskins, because, according to fourth year safety Trenton Robinson's Instagram, Popeyes chicken makes the Redskins very happy.
Just a day ahead of a very important preseason game against the Ravens (well, as important as a preseason game can be, at least), the Burgundy and Gold elected to have the people at Popeyes deliver some of their delicious chicken, buttery biscuits and cajun fries to the team's locker room. And according to a video posted on social media by Robinson, that move was an extremely popular one.

In Robinson's video, we see numerous players and coaches get fried up -- sorry, fired up -- for the fried chicken.
First, there's offensive coordinator Sean McVay successfully executing the play call known as, "Popeyes bag, right hand dive," with running back Alfred Morris cheerfully swaying back and forth behind him, eating his part of the meal.
Then, the camera pans left to cornerback David Amerson, who's shimmying with excitement over the food's arrival.
Finally, there's Trent Williams riding a PhunkeeDuck (becoming another D.C. athlete to do so this summer) and singing passionately (there's no sound, unfortunately, so we don't know what he's singing) as he, too, chows down on some of Louisiana's finest cuisine.
The team's reaction to the delivery is reminiscent of Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation when he sees a piece of steak or a dog when they see a tennis ball -- just pure, unbridled joy. And for a bunch of guys who've had a rough past week or so, it's nice to see them enjoying their time in the locker room.
Now, anyone have any idea how much the final bill would come out to be for a team that currently has 90 players on the roster, plus coaches? Seriously, the Popeyes that took the Redskins' order may just be able to shut down for the next six months with the profits they made on Friday, considering how many big men needed to be fed.
