Wet, Artistic Fans Carve Redskins Pumpkins

One thing I may not have made enough of in my last post about the fans who wait to see the buses off is the level of effort they put into everything they do. After the impressive hats for the Dallas game, the Eagles send-off featured rubber chickens on spears and a well-executed Chicken Little poster. This past Saturday, the fans stood through the rain to cheer the departure of the buses and display their Wizard of Oz themed Lions sign.

Then, presumably soaking wet, they left the park and carved Redskins-themed pumpkins, which were waiting for us when we got back Sunday night, lit from the inside by battery-powered “candles.” I didn’t get pictures of them at the time, but they were still there this morning. I can barely carve the traditional three triangles and a crescent, so things like this and the Cooleys pumpkins really stagger me.

More pumpkins after the jump.
