Popped on over to DC Sports Bog today, as is usually the case when one of our Philly teams takes on a representative club from the city of transient sycophants who portend to like sports. Saw two dichotomous stories.
First up, a couple of dudes from a comedy troupe who found their way to South Philly to pick on some Eagles fans and portray Philly folks as a pile of trash:
Funny. Insulting, too. But funny.
But the irony with this one is strong. You know, because Redskins fans are currently tailgating with a live pig outside FedEXField:

That’s Grandma Hog, a pig purchased by Floyd Rich, a Redskins fan. He explained his decision to buy the pig and then subsequently bring it to a tailgate thusly to Dan Steinberg:
Floyd Rich of Landover had thought about getting a rabbit as a pet for his nieces and nephews. Instead, he got a pig.
“We wanted to do something different,” Rich told me by phone Monday morning. “It was something different and unique, and we wanted to promote it as a Redskins mascot, for the Hogs.”
Yeah, yeah, we get it, Floyd.
Kickoff can’t come soon enough.
