EXTRA! EXTRA! Snyder Feels 'Bad' for Fans
"Garbo Speaks" were the headlines when Greta Garbo appeared in her first talking picture. Now we have "Snyder Speaks."
In a rare address to the press yesterday, the Redskins owner said that the team was "disappointed" and "embarrassed" by its 2-5 start. When asked what the fans must be feeling, Snyder said, “I see disappointment. It’s the same way I feel and I share their frustration. It’s hard. We’re going to try to put it together and get it going.”
He apparently did not offer his thoughts on all the extraneous stuff that's going on this season, such as the sign ban. He stuck to his message: We feel bad. We're disappointed. Interestingly, while Snyder said he felt sorry for the fans, nowhere did he say he was sorry. Unless I missed it, there was no apology.
Oh wait, he did say this: "And I think we have an opportunity the rest of the season to hopefully get it going. But to date, we've let everyone down -- including ourselves. We know that. We're just apologetic."
We're just apologetic. Is that the same thing as I apologize?
Play the Game Already
Did you see the story in The Post today about high school football teams being penalized when their players engage in on-field celebrations? Quite right, I say. Maybe that mindset will make its way to the NFL.
I'm sick of the showboating that goes on after even run-of-the-mill plays in the pros. A ho-hum tackle? The defensive player whoops it up like he's just ripped out Hitler's heart. There's one particular move some players seem to favor that drives me crazy: a squat, crablike strut in the middle of the field.
Do you do that at your job? When you finish auditing a company do you strike a pose? Do your co-workers all high-five each other after each e-mail or successfully-filed RFP?
I'm thinking of putting a canister of oxygen next to my desk at work so after I file a column--and run around the newsroom slapping my colleagues' butts--I can flop down and suck down some O2.
