The Hogettes do a lot of good things for charity — any appearance fee they’re paid, for example, gets distributed entirely to charities — but that’s not to say that they don’t get some sweet perks also. The Hogette known as Howiette was at the Redskins Read event earlier this week, and I couldn’t help notice that he was wearing what appeared to be custom socks.
“These came off the internet, from one of the stitching sites, I can’t remember which. The shoes came from East Bay, though,” Howiette said.
“The problem is that they stopped making them, and I only bought two pairs, so I’ve gotta be careful what I do in them.”
I observed that being a Hogette seemed like a pretty sweet gig, what with the charity aspect, the custom socks and shoes, and being in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Howiette had to agree. “Plus you get to wear a dress,” he said, enthusiastically.
You certainly do.
