ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) --- An iconic Redskins fan is facing eviction from her home.
Pat Hill gained local notoriety in 2009 when she was sued by the Washington Redskins in a dispute over the season tickets she first bought in 1962.
A self-described Redskins fanatic, Hill was a realtor whose business was ruined when the housing bubble burst, sending her into financial distress, making it impossible for her to honor her agreement to purchase the tickets. The Redskins eventually dropped the lawsuit after a public outcry of support for Hill.
Still a die-hard Redskins fan, Hill is looking forward to the Sunday Night contest with The Dallas Cowboys, convinced beyond question that the Redskins will prevail.
It is what will happen the following Friday that makes her supporters wonder if she will prevail. Hill faces eviction from the home where she has lived for 37 years, her efforts to re-finance, so far, unsuccessful. The court hearing is on January 4th.
"I told the bank that I could make a $2,000 payment ( per month) if they would give me a loan modification because 17 times they had me fill out paperwork, because they said they were willing to work with me," she said. But she has been unable to reach an agreement with her lenders.
"I'm going to fight them until the day I die because I want to live in my house until I die," she told 9News Now.
