Woman shows her Redskins spirit on nine+ inch nails

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

It is one thing to be a Redskins fan. It's another to alter your body to honor the team. We have it for you tonight. A native Washingtonian who can really cheer on the ‘Skins and help them claw their way to the top.

At first, you might hear the click of her heels, but it's the tap of her fingernails that'll really get your attention.

Pepper Cox's fingernails would be eight feet long if you lined them all up.

"Altogether, 97 inches," says Cox.

She's a proud D.C. native and what's going on right now with the Redskins has her pretty excited. Of course, her favorite player is Robert Griffin III.

Her advice to the 'Skins savior: "Relax. Take it all in. Smell it - because NFL means 'not for long,"' advises Cox.

RG3 was probably in junior high when Cox started growing her fingernails 11 years ago. She's painted them burgundy and gold every football season since, even when the team had its critics - especially the owner.

"Dan Snyder, I love him. I just wish sometimes he'd get a front line - I need an offensive front line, but I love him," says Cox.

But not quite as much as she loves her little grandson. He's also a 'Skins fan.

"He likes them. He always says my grandmother has long nails," says Cox.

She made it to a few games this year, but this Sunday, she'll watch from a friend's house.

"Ooh, we're 30 deep. It gets pretty loud. We have neighbors that want to come and join with us from blocks away," she says.

In case you're wondering, she works in I.T. for the federal government. She can type and dial her own phone with her knuckles. She even crochets.

The one thing she says she can't do with those nails: "Fold socks." Of course, if she could fold socks, they'd certainly be burgundy and gold.

    VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis has given a lift to two lucky kids during his general audience in St. Peter's Square. A particularly jovial Francis hopped off his white, open-air car Wednesday to greet a group of fifth graders from Perugia who presented him with a T-shirt from their school. Seemingly joking, Francis asked if any of them wanted to take a spin through the square. "Me! Me! Me!" they yelled.
