Gameday Tip: When You Leave Your Tailgate, Make Sure Nothing Is on Fire

skinsfirefinal.jpgThis would be a horrible way to end an already miserable evening at FedEx Field last night:

Eight cars were heavily damaged by fire last night in a parking lot at FedEx field, Prince George’s County fire officials said.

One car began burning, and the blaze then spread to seven others said Maj. Dennis Wood of the county fire and emergency services department.

The article goes on to say that Maj. Wood (not to be confused with The Maj) does not suspect foul play. In other words, somebody dumped their still-burning coals a little too close to an automobile, or put a hot grill in the bed of their pickup. But here’s the good news: With the reported percentage of Steelers fans in attendance last night ranging anywhere from 15-33%, there’s a good chance at least a couple of those eight cars burned belonged to Yinzers. The best way to calculate just how many Steeler fan automobiles were touched is to count up the number of Firebirds and/or IROCs that were damaged in the blaze.

Unfortunately, this bus made it out intact.
