It truly is a sad day in Washington, as one of the longest continuous traditions in Redskins history in no more. The Hogettes are calling it quits. From their Facebook page:
After 30 seasons, the Hogettes are hanging up our pig snouts & dresses.
It has been an honor being a part of the greatest 12th Man fans in the NFL.
We will forever be Redskins’ fans and cheer for our beloved team.
It is a new era and we will continue to support RG3 and his teammates.
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!
We will also continue to help (incognito) raise money for Children’s Charities.
It’s certainly an odd tradition to have grown men show up to games at RFK and FedEx Field in drag and pig snouts, but it’s one that Skins fans know and appreciate. They are members of the the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio largely for their philanthropic work, raising over $100 million for local charities.
They will be missed. HAIL!
