Think Washington Redskins fans are pumped about this weekend's home playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks?
"Redskins fans have been waiting 20 years," says Michael "Mikey T" Torbert. "This is 13 years since we've had a playoff game at FedEx Field."
Torbert is affectionately known around these parts as the "Boss Hogette."
"The Hogettes have been around for 30 seasons," says Torbert, a founding member of the Hall of Fame Redskins fans.
He was at Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.
"When (Redskins linebacker Rob) Jackson intercepted that pass (from Dallas quarterback Tony Romo sealing the Redskins victory), it was like 80,000 people went ‘Yeah!"' says Torbert. "It was electric. Believe me, it ranked right up there."
"I think anybody who's a Redskins fan is delighted and elated to what the Redskins have accomplished this year," says former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, who led the team to victory in Super Bowl XVII 30 years ago this month. "To put together a seven-game win streak in the National Football League is very, very difficult."
What about Sunday afternoon's game against the visiting Seahawks?
"I've said whoever wins this game on Sunday, I think will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl," Theismann says.
And Mikey T and the Hogettes will be watching.
"Oh yeah, we'll be there at our post for sure," he says. "The Pig Pen will be all jammed up. We got a guy flying back from Florida, and "Mike-ette," the missing link from southern California is flying in. So we'll be there with bells on for sure."
