Richard Nixon outlined a play for George Allen and told Old George to run it. The Redskins did run it in their playoff game against the '49ers...first Washington post-season game in my lifetime. The play failed, and the Redskins lost, although I forget what the play was supposed to do.

As I recall the story, Allen thanked Nixon for the play and told him he'd run it, then when Nixon was out of sight promptly crumpled it up and threw it in the trash.
