That's how I choose to remember the great John Riggins, though also because he was about as entertaining a player as existed. That includes off-field antics and it is with just a little hesitation that I repeat this interesting tale of recklessness on the part of one of this website's namesakes, as he was an "Honorary Hog".

Per the Post, some batshit crazy sounding UFC Fighter/Ref/Waiter/Brazilian Jujitsu master caught the worst end of a John Riggins binge. In case you weren't familiar with this story, I'll repeat the Redskins related parts here with emphasis added:
In a deposition, Riggins would say he only pushed the Nissan to get it out of his way...
Hogs Haven does not support driving drunk, but we still love us some John Riggins. Just one more reason to tune in.
