CANTON, OHIO — It is not just Cowboys and 49ers fans who flocked to the Hall of Fame. The famed dress-wearing fans of the Redskins are here to welcome in former Hogs great Russ Grimm.
Grimm, who earned respect by quoting Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” in his speech, talked about the great Redskins fans. Grimm talked about how the fans chanted “We want Dallas” prior to the 1982 NFC Championship Game and threw seat cushions years later in a game against the Falcons. He said that playing for the Redskins fans made it fun.
And by my biased count, the Hogettes seemed to be having the most fun of any fans — including the Cowboys — posing for pictures.
