After 30 seasons of showing up to every home game and becoming a fixture among the best fan base in the National Football League, the Washington Redskins Hogettes have announced that they will be hanging up their snouts and dresses for good.
It’s bittersweet news for the legendary Redskins fan group, which has officially retired and will no longer appear together. The good news? The Hogettes plan on continuing their tremendous work raising money for children’s charities.
The Hogettes released this official statement on their Website today:
“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.”
