Official Extremeskins Tailgate - 12/04/11
SportsJourney will be with us!!
The nice folks from SportsJourney will be joining us at our tailgate as well
as the post tailgate. They may be bringing some players out to the post
tailgate!! Huly and I go to their show on a regular basis and these are
some great folks, who are level headed and knowledgeable of our team.
Lets show them some ExtremeSkins love!!
Ok folks... Three (3) more games left at home! Just three! Lets make 'em
count! The Dallas tailgate was fantastic... lots of great food, lots of great
drinks, and more importantly, lots of great people. The win against the
Seahags, should boost confidence in this team and inspire them to play
great football on Sunday... Lets give the Jets hell !!!
This year the Extremeskins Tailgate will have containers available for the first
year of the Extremeskins Charity Fund. There will be two containers. One
container will be for pop tabs (the little tabs on the top of aluminum beer and
soda cans)... this is to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. If you drink a
beer or coke, don't forget to take off the tab and put it in the container before
throwing away!!! The other container will be for monetary donations, and will
be for the the charity selected slected this year: The Wounded Warrior Project!
Please donate what you can!
Our tailgates this year have been absolutely fantastic and I want to thank
every single one of you guys, because people have been stepping up more and
more with lots of great food, drinks and much needed supplies. This tailgate is
getting bigger and better year after year, and the reason is because each and
every one of you does such an awesome job. Don't think this goes unnoticed
either... The Redskins organization knows who we are and likes how we present
ourselves as fans and as responsible tailgaters. Lets continue to do our best as
the best tailgate at Fedex Field!
I am sure most of you are familiar with our tailgate threads, but I like to
emphasize that we try to be as organized as we possibly can. At the bottom
of this post you will see 4 sections (Food, Drinks, Supplies and Needed
Items). We ask that if you plan on attending, and if you can donate items to
the tailgate, that you check what we have and what we need and post what
you can bring. I will keep the lists updated as frequently as I can. We
understand that in some situations, that folks cannot bring something, but
we do ask that people who regularly attend the tailgate try to chip in
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Remember:
Food/Drinks/Supplies are appreciated over monetary donations
What is it:
We are a gathering of die hard Washington Redskins fans who love to come
together and have a good time out in the lots before and after the game.
Our tailgate has become a very popular point at Fedex Field, and we have
been featured on numerous news and television shows. If you like to eat
great food and enjoy tasty beverages while playing games, listening to tunes
and chatting about the brugundy and gold with fellow die hard fans, then
this is the place for you!
When is it: <-Tentative
December 4th. 9:00 am - 12:45 pm. Post game tailgate times vary (but yes
there is a post game tailgate!). The tailgate always starts the moment the
parking lot opens (4 hours before game time) and we start packing up around
30-45 minutes before game time. Many of us arrive even earlier to do a bit of
pre-tailgating on Redskins Road before the lot is opened... you can usually
find a bunch of us at the very front of the line
Where is it:
We have found a nice spot in the Fedex Field parking lot that offers us a ton
of room and protection from cars running all over the place as well as other
Section E-43 in the Green Lot (see map below).
- Take exit 17B to merge onto MD-202 W/Landover Rd toward Bladensburg W
- At the first light, turn left onto Brightseat Rd
- At the first light, go straight onto Redskins Rd (stadium should be straight ahead of you)
- When you get into the parking area surrounding the stadium, make the first available left
- Go to the back of the lot (tree line)
- Follow till you see the signs on the poles for E-42 & E-43 (we are smack in between)
- We are against the treeline. You should see the 2 flagpoles with black flags and redskins flags as well as a large group of people and tents.

Who can come:
Absolutely everyone... the more the merrier! This tailgate originated as a
tailgate for the ExtremeSkins and RedskinRoadtrips boards, but it has
expanded and has brought in not only folks from other fan sites, but it has
become a haven for all Redskins fans, their friends and their families. We
accept fans of all sorts, even of other teams. We ask if you come to the
tailgate, that you remember one thing... treat others as you would want to
be treated! We appreciate the razzing of opponents fans, as a matter of
fact, we encourage it! We do not however, tolerate any physical violence,
threats, property damage, etc...
Fans of all ages are welcome (We have non-alcoholic items as well). We
have lots of kids at our tailgate
What can I do?
We prefer that folks bring food/drinks/supplies rather than money. While
we do not solicit any contributions to the tailgate, they are welcome.
Many of us who help run the tailgate spend alot of money on the supplies
that we provide at every tailgate. Anything you can do to help is highly
desired and appreciated, such as bringing food, drinks, supplies or even
donating monetarily (which is distributed among the core members of the
