About once every other year or so the malt and hops clear from my brain only momentarily to reveal a fantastic plan. Last week, just such an occurrence, um, occurred.
I decided to ask The Mayor of FedEx Field to provide Mr. Irrelevant with one-of-a-kind video footage of the Dead Tree Crew (DTC) tailgate during the Sunday of the Redskins-Cardinals game. Being the thoughtful public servant that he is, The Mayor asked me to come join them myself, but I had prior obligations. Finally, he agreed to take the footage, but with one stipulation: He wanted to talk shit about The Junkies. Who am I to stop him — The f’ing Mayor — from doing what he wants? No one, would be the answer. Just a common citizen trying to do my part.
So, the camera rolled. And rolled. And rolled some more. There was a total of 67 minutes of footage, beginning with them leaving for the stadium before sunrise, and concluding with them leaving for home near sunset. Needless to say, it was quite an undertaking to edit it down to the seven-plus minute video you’re about to watch, but I believe it was well worth it. And don’t worry, I kept the clips very short so your adult ADD won’t kick in. Also, watch out for special guest appearances from Agent Steinz, Plaxico Burress’ father, and a motorized cooler, which can be seen throughout. Enjoy:
