Men In Jorts and Skins Gear Are Drinking Out of Cones. It Must Be Football Season.

Unlike many politicians in D.C., The Mayor of FedEx Field is true to his word: He promised us “exclusive” DTC content all season and he has already started delivering. On Sunday night, The Mayor flooded the inboxes of Mottram, Inc. with a handful of tailgating videos from the Skins first day of the ’08 training camp. The footage was nothing we haven’t already come to expect — jorts, chains, wife beaters, beers and all around wholesome ladies — but it served as a not-so-gentle reminder that the NFL season is nearly upon us (seriously, it is … the Skins first preseason game is in 10 days):We do have to make note of two new additions to the DTC tailgate: 1) The Mayor’s new “Hate the Mayor Not the Game” shirt, 2) That fresh, shiny white cone, just waiting to be littered with the names of new DTC recruits, one of whom will be me in about a month. My initiation is going down at the Panthers-Skins preseason game here in Charlotte. Hopefully it won’t involve the term “sexed in.”

Bonus DTC footage from the archives (last season’s Skins-Cowboys games) after the jump. Make sure to “get some” around the one-minute mark.

    “7:23 in the morning.”

    I’ve never seen a force like the DTC. And I live in Baltimore.

    I’m not sure how the Mayor’s hat fails to qualify for the Hot Fitteds tag.

    If I used every tag that applied to this video, the post would’ve gone on for days.

    I will continue to give you guys the exclusive shit. Should have a treasure chest in Canton.

    As for the second video, I have explained it a little better in my blog.

    Speaking of Canton, I’m sure Chief Zee was doing beer bongs 30 years ago.

    One day, Mayor, you’ll be in Canton w/ the Chief.

    Is the Mayor this generation’s Chief Zee or is the Dead Tree Crew this generation’s Hogettes or both?

    Interesting discussion going on here. Cheif Zee and myself have alot of similarties.

    Both in the car business (He was a career salesman, I am General Sales Manager at 28)

    He got beat up in Philly, his costume ripped off, I got jumped in Philly in 1996, but kept my Terry Allen jersey on like a champ.

    He is diabetic and black.

    I have ADD and am white.

    As for the Hogettes, the DTC original goal was to surpass their popularity, and I think we already have.
