Me, Huly, Pez and a few others are putting together a little celebration for Chief Zee's 35th Anniversary of, well... being Chief Zee.

Part of that celebration is a fundraiser to offer Chief Zee some much needed assistance.

If you are so inclined, you can donate HERE
Even if you can't give, please stop by the donation page and leave a comment. I'll be using them to make a special display for Chief Zee.

If you would be so kind as to pass this around your Face Book page and/or your twitter, that would be great!

Thank You!

After hearing some of the things you told me last year while we were down for the Ravens game, I will gladly be sending something this weekend. I remember how he lit up when he saw your daughter...still have the pics on my phone. Great job by you and deserved by Z.

My favorite pic of me and the Chief. This was after we won against the Rams when Zorn was head coach. We won 9-7. It was the most depressing win I've ever experienced. I hope to get a pick of us after a big win late this season.

Something I wrote about the Chief a few years back:


I can say that I got to meet Cheif Zee. Now, over the course of this bizarre journey with Extremeskins I've sat in on three Joe Gibbs press conferences. I've talked to numerous players, sat in the box with all manner of really smart and savvy media types. But meeting the Chief has been the biggest thrill for me yet. (Warning: I'm gonna go Zen here for a moment) Owners, coaches, players ... Washington Post beat reporters ... they come and go. But we fans remain. And Chief Zee is the Redskin fans. He's all of us, really. I've watched the man do battle with Cowboys and Giants and Eagles for twenty years now. And to shake the man's hand, well, it was pretty awesome. Pretty funny guy too.

My favorite funny Zee memory was the time he took a drink with me, looked at me and said "that ain't ****" and proceeded to fall into my arms laughing.

Serious memory and the one I'll never, ever forget was the day we gave him his new shoes, I cried like a baby when he grabbed me and hugged me so tight I couldn't breath.

Excellent idea! Meeting him was high on my Redskins Bucket List. Pretty sure he copped a feel on my wife, too, and more power to him!

I'll catch you next pay day. My daughter still has the Chief Zee signed hat from 8 years ago. He's a first class person all the way.

Hail to Chief Zee!

I left a comment for him and I have set a reminder to circle back around on payday! Thanks so much for doing this for him. I truly hope I get to meet him at the Bears game this year- he is so treasured!

We are off to a great start.

I know we have a long ways to go but I want to make sure this doesn't die off.

If you would be so kind as to share the word on FB, twitter, or any other place you think it would get positive traction, we would really appreciate it.
More importantly, In the end Chief Zee will appreciate it!

Thanks for all the support so far, Let's keep it up!

I wanted to add: While all the kind words concerning my involvement in this endeavor are nice, it takes all of our REDSKINS FAMILY to make this happen.

In 2007, I met him at an Extremeskins tailgate.  It was one of my first blog posts:




"Dressed for game day, he is Chief Zee, and the passion he has multiplies all of the excitement, fun and heartache of being a Redskins fan."


Thanks Chief.

This is a fantastic idea. I will place this link on my FB page as soon as I'm home from my trip and no longer relegated to typing on my stinkin' phone.

Unfortunately, I've never personally met Chief Zee but feel like I know him a little bit from the stories my friends have shared with me about him. I sincerely hope to get back east for a home game soon to tailgate with fellow ESers and meet Chief so I can tell him how much he has meant to my experience of being a Redskins fan :).

I hope we can raise some $ to help Chief out and show him how much we truly appreciate him :)

Nothing but love and best wishes to you Chief Zee!!!

Come on people, spread the word.  We got time yet to do this.  I wanna see this on twitter, Google+, facebook, wherever.  Get a couple of local celebs to retweet it or something.  Make this link trend hard, people.

We broke the $1000 mark! Thanks to everyone that has donated, left comments and/or blasted this all over social media. But...

I think REDSKINS nation can do better!!! There's not a fan base out
there that has a stronger family connection, let's help Chief Zee
because he IS family!

Have a Safe and Blessed 4th of July!
