Upon posting the contents of my 2013 Upper Deck football pack yesterday, I got a comment from Cardboard Hogs asking for the RGIII inserts and one other card. I noticed he had a Wordpress blog so I jumped right on over. Immediately I knew he was a Redskins fan. Before my hometown of Charlotte, NC was awarded a NFL franchise which became the Carolina Panthers, this area was Redskins territory. I never cared much for football until we got the Panthers, but I can remember my dad flipping back and forth between a Redskins game and a NASCAR race on Sundays after church. My dad wasn't a die hard Skins fan, but that is how he got his football fix.
I also noticed he collected a few baseball players including several Yankees. The only thing I can say that redeemed him a bit was his dislike of A-Rod. Seriously though, I love the layout and colors of his blog. I've already added it to my blogroll so I can make sure to stay up to date with his posts. I also hope this gives me a new football trading partner as many of my regular readers don't seem to delve as much into football. Baseball will always be my main focus, but I can't ignore my Panthers and I love opening football card packs as well.
So if football is your thing, Redskins or not, I encourage you to hop on over and check out Cardboard Hogs.
