A Mere Я Image

Fred Robbins is a former NFL defensive tackle who spent six seasons with the New York Giants. In a Dec. 4, 2005, game against the Dallas Cowboys, Robbins registered five tackles — and did his best impression of a Toys Я Us kid.

Here’s the scoop: I derived enjoyment from this uniform mess, and today I’m going to bask in Robbins’ backward glancing blow. Let us press forward.

Sew what? Is that an Я stitched on Robbins’ uniform? Is Я in the English alphabet? No. I know the alphabet backward and forward.

That Я is a mirror image of R, of course — a reflection of considerable oversight.

Я? You serious?
