Hogettes super-fans calling it quits after 30 years

The Hogettes are done.

The cross-dressing, fake snout-wearing Redskins fans have called it quits after 30 years. This message was posted on

"After 30 seasons, the Hogettes® are hanging up our pig snouts & dresses. It has been an honor being a part of the greatest 12th Man fans in the NFL. We will forever be Redskins' fans and cheer for our beloved team. It is a new era and we will continue to support RG3 and his teammates. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!! We will also continue to help (incognito) raise money for Children's Charities. -- Mikey T., Boss Hogette"

I won't pretend to be an expert on the Redskins' super fans. Kudos for their charity work, but I never quite understood the whole thing -- even after reading their history.

But the Hogettes are a part of NFL history. It'll be different not seeing those clips during Redskins games.
