Roger Goodell would never. DC Defenders fans have birthed a new tradition, and it’s a tradition unlike any other: the Beer Snake. On Sunday, the Legend of the Beer Snake added a new chapter to its budding legacy: XFL commissioner Oliver Luck recognizing it and partaking in the festivities.

He’s not some guy up in the press box. He’s a man of class. Character. Commissioner Luck is a man of the people. Which is why he made his way to the beer snake to offer up his help.GET YOU A LEAGUE COMMISSIONER WHO CONTRIBUTES A CUP TO THE GIANT BEER SNAKE.OLIVER LUCK F O R E V E R.THIS LEAGUE. pic.twitter.com/V41n5ndpNQ— XFL (@xfl2020) March 8, 2020😂 @XFL2020 commissioner @OliverLuckXFL is loving the @XFLDefenders beer snake pic.twitter.com/fqeNlHwdGJ— XFL on FOX (@XFLonFOX) March 8, 2020The Great Wall of Budweiser caught the eyes of everyone, not just the commish.How long until @russianmachine makes a DC Defenders #BeerSnake t-shirt?

Maybe a change for next season. The snake, which stretched out to over 14 rows long, was the stuff of myth. Fans were eating — or drinking, I guess — it up, as the Defenders took the fight to the St. Louis BattleHawks in a win in the nation’s capital.
