According to Chris Chase of USA Today, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is the subject of a 4,500-word profile in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine. The most interesting part is what Snyder used to do in the owners box after losses.
“After losses, Snyder would stay until 4 a.m., pounding drinks, downing burgers and pizza and blaming himself for being, in the words of a friend, “his own worst enemy,” wrote Seth Wickersham.
Snyder must have done some real damage to himself, since the Redskins haven’t won that much since he took over as the owner.
Now I understand why he used to throw loads of money at free agents. He was clearly trying to break his habit.
