Default First label attempt...for a keg brewed for an "unfortunate" redskins fan..er..friend

This is my first-ever attempt at a label; this one for a keg of pale ale I brewed for my colleagues opening Sunday NFL part...he's a huge Redskins fan.

I don't think I'm terribly creative visually, but I am a professional musician, so I guess that makes up in the creativity department.

Be kind!

You know what I think would be funny?

Make a bunch of these labels, all the same but change the names.

"Butt-Pat Pale Ale"
"Last Place Pale Ale"
"Crappy Owner Pale Ale"
"Pats 41, 'Skins 0 Pale Ale"

Etc., etc.

Lookin good! I like the 'themed' ale idea

I think some NASCAR fans may like the last place idea

Maybe I should have put, "Joe Gibbs recommends this beer served in a NEXTEL CUP." True 'skins fan, troubled though they must be, would understand the pun!
