There are certainly a lot of musical tributes to the Redskins flying around this season. One of the coolest: "Viva Los Redskins," a Spanish-language ode to the team that will debut this weekend.

WTOP's Andrew Mollenbeck reports that the reworked version of the fight song "Hail to the Redskins" is "part of the team's effort to celebrate Hispanic fans, players and staff" during Redskins Hispanic Heritage Week.

"The thing that makes that song ("Hail to the Redskins") great is also the thing that makes the Spanish language version so irresistible," Michael Garin, one of the co-creators of the track, told Mollenbeck. "There's something about that song that just gets everybody's blood going, and there's something about that music that gets everybody's blood going, and when you put it together, boy, oh boy, what can I say but 'Viva Los Redskins.'"

The song is, in a word, awesome. Listen to it at Michael Garin's website, or buy it on iTunes.

And, if you happen to own a ball team, Garin and his songwriting partners are currently offering translations and recordings of any and all fight songs for a reasonable rate. But, they refuse to do one for "That Team From Texas," according to their site. ¡Que Vivan Los Redskins!
