While we wait for the inevitable, Tony Kornheiser used his radio show to relay his encounter with 'Skins owner Dan Snyder during Sunday's fiasco. Mr. Tony had the pleasure of sitting in the owner's box (as much as 60 minutes of JV high school football can be deemed pleasurable).
Via the Sports Bog:
"At the end of the first half, Snyder was not where he normally sits for the entire two-minute drill," Kornheiser said. "And I don't know where he was, because he was in front of me. And I chatted with him at great length, and gave him all my opinions as to what should happen, including that Theismann should be the coach. And it is my opinion, and I'll stay with that until I'm proven wrong, and I'm never gonna be proven wrong because it's not gonna happen.First -- and I can't believe I'm about to type this -- but the 'Skins couldn't be worse off with Joe Theismann as head coach. I'm not saying he's qualified, just more so than Zorn. Second, what sort of bubble does the Snyder mafia live in that chants of "Sell the Team" stunned them? How is that not obvious? Third, congrats, supporters: Snyder is a) "embarrassed" for you, and b) thinks you are "great." All is forgiven.
"But at the end of the half, there began a chant--Sell The Team. Sell The Team. Sell The Team.--that everybody in the box heard. The people in the box were stunned. I don't know that he heard it, because he wasn't there, but the people in the box were STUNNED. And I remember saying to him about two hours before the game, 'If you don't understand this, this is falling on you. ON YOU. Not anybody else, falling on you. And he said--and I will share this--he said 'I'm just so embarrassed for the fans, because I do think we have great fans.'
"And I said, 'Well, why don't you say that out loud somewhere?' And then we talked about what you could do or what you couldn't do, but I'm not an adviser to the team."
Mr. Irrelevant speculates that Snyder may have gone missing just before the half to order Jason Campbell out of the game. Either that or Snyder was taking a [poop].
There's also a third possibility: he was doing both simultaneously.
