Redskins: Up in Flames


McNabb's jersey, before the fires.

I'm choosing to pretend it's still 12:15 pm on Sunday. The Redskins are still favored to win, it's still sunny and warmish, Rick "Doc" Walker is still calmish, an optimistic home crowd is still streaming toward the gates, and one of my favorite tailgates in the FedEx lots is getting ready for its thrice-yearly tradition: the burning of the divisional uniform.
This is Ted A.'s tailgate, featuring homemade deep-fried funnel cakes topped with powder sugar, deep-fried turkeys (i.e. Eagles), a motorized cooler scooter and a penchant to hang opponents' jerseys on a metal cross and then douse them in lighter fluid. The tradition started in '05, against the Cowboys, with the burning of an Emmitt Smith jersey.
"At the Tampa Bay playoff game, we burned a few," Ted told me. "The Tampa Bay fans were kind of pissed out."
"All of my friends got arrested at that game in different locations," tailgater Adam Hoffman added. "It was amazing."

It begins.

I asked Ted how long it takes to burn an NFL jersey. "Seconds," he said. I asked what they do with the jersey after the brief fire.
"It's pretty much just charred ruins," he said, "so, nothing. Cheesecake?" he offered, pointing to a lovely dessert topped with raspberries. I'm telling you, he does this right.
The iron cross was a new addition this year, a gift from a buddy of Ted's named Joey who is a metal fabricator. "That way we don't end up burning ourselves," Ted noted. Yes, he once burned his hand without the aid of the prop.
I asked about the jersey acquisition process. "Let's just say it's nice to have a friend who works at Sports Authority," he said. "Friendly donations."

I never got arrested and I have no idea where that above came from,

But I will burn your jersey for a price
