The former Washington Redskins superfan group known as the Hogettes may be no more, but that doesn't mean all the hogs have left FedEx Field.
One Washington fan, Floyd Rich, brought a live pig to a tailgate outside the stadium before the team's season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
The hog, named Miss Charlotte, is 2 1/2 years old and weighs between 800 and 1,000 pounds. Rich told the Washington Post that he hopes Miss Charlotte can take on a special meaning for Redskins fans.
“We wanted to do something different,” Rich said. “It was something different and unique, and we wanted to promote it as a Redskins mascot, for the Hogs.”
