Agent Steinz Infiltrates the DTC Tailgate

I used to think the Dead Tree Crew — the most notorious group of Skins supporters at FedEx — was a black eye to followers of Burgundy and Gold everywhere. Just some wannabe Manassas gangsters who make us all look silly. But as I’ve learned more about the DTC, I’ve grown to love them. I don’t think they’re as unintelligent as them seem, which I base mostly on the fact that they leave coherent, even witty, comments on blogs. I think the joke’s on us.

Anyway, The Bog spent some time tailgating with the DTC on Sunday and got an exclusive look at the ways and means of The Crew. Steinz explores the creation of the DTC (it really is named after a dead tree), their thoughts on Eagles fans (“The Mayor’ll throw a brick at your face”), their traffic cone beer bong (a tradition dating back to ’01), and so much more. However, the best, and perhaps most telling, quote from the entire affair comes from The Mayor:

“I don’t care who the [bleep] you are. If you’re wearing burgundy and gold, you can drink my green liquor. If you need to deliver your pregnant baby in the back of my pickup truck, you can do it.”

There is then a 50+ comment thread going on, most of which is back and forth between members of the DTC and “haters.” I found this comment from “Another Eagles Fan” to be especially hilarious:

“mayor and president double teamed my sister 2 years ago. Best day of her life. And since I witnessed it it was the best day of my life too”

Sounds sexy. I must say, fantastic work by Steinz, but next time he best not turn down the opportunity to drink from the cone. Some chances are once in a lifetime.

Update: The Mayor has left an “exclusive rap for this site” in the comments section. You must peep it.
