Can’t say I’m torn up about this, because I can’t recall the last time I really thought about the Hogettes, but the Redskins superfan group is breaking up, according to TheHogs.net’s Jake Russell (via USA TODAY Sports):
Just confirmed with Dave Spigler, “Spiggy Hogette” that the Hogettes are in fact, disbanding after 30 years of supporting the Redskins.
The decision for The Hogettes to disband after 30 years was made by Michael Torbert, aka “Boss Hogette,” who said it was time.
Spigler told me that the Hogettes will still do charity work but not as “The Hogettes.”
It was a good run, a Hall of Fame run by sports fan standards. But the men rooting in dresses and pig snouts make way for a new generation of Redskins diehards, a generation led by the likes of SuperSkin and RG3Woman.
Which is to say things aren’t like they used to be. And one can only hope Chief Zee is the next to hang up his headdress.
Update: Steinz is ON IT.
