Raljon, Maryland was a place name for the area around FedExField (originally called Jack Kent Cooke Stadium), in Landover, Maryland, where the Washington Redskins play. Former Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke derived the name from the names of his sons, Ralph and John. The name is still used by Pardon MyTake. Introduced in 1997 to almost universal derision, the name enjoyed almost no currency beyond the Redskins and the United States Postal Service, which formally recognized the name after granting Cooke's request.
