Redskins Fans Burn Effigy Of Cowboys Player

Posted by Matt Terl on September 13, 2010 – 10:27 am

That right there was one of the more memorable displays from Saturday’s send-off at Redskins Park. That’s a straw-filled dummy dressed up in a Tony Romo T-shirt and arrow-riddled Cowboys helmet, stuck under the wheel of a Redskins-customized Jeep Rubicon. The Jeep — and the dummy, for that matter — belong to the guy in the Redskins jersey, Chris “Pez” Lopez. Pez is a duly-elected member of Pro Football’s Ultimate Fan Association, and he and his wife Christie (“Huly”) are top-notch Redskins superfans, active on ExtremeSkins and beyond. If you’ve ever been to one of the away game sendoffs or an ExtremeSkins tailgate, chances are one of those two was involved in organizing it.

And you don’t become a member of PFUFA by under-utilizing your resources. So when Pez and Huly built themselves a perfectly good straw-filled Dallas Cowboys dummy, they knew exactly how best to dispose of it: with sweet cleansing fire.

“Don’t worry,” Huly told me, “I always keep a fire extinguisher handy for the deep fryer” — her husband makes a mighty fine chicken wing — “and we got a new one for this. We have a full first-aid kit, too.”

Didn’t do much for the straw Cowboy, but it’s good to know just in case.

(And, just to forestall any possible objections, the guy in the background of the photo above is fully- dressed, wearing an apron emblazoned with a picture of a man’s body with strategically-placed sombrero. Hope nobody was even briefly offended.)

Here’s more pictures of the carnage.

Please note: this blog does not actually condone the wanton use of fire, even for destroying Cowboys gear. Still: just this once, it’s a nifty visual.
