Daniel Snyder Gets Heckled
Walking down to the field level, here's what I noticed.
* Carlos Rogers with the so-called candy painted bright yellow cleats. (Uniform is burgundy pants and white shirts, if that wasn't known, and nearly everyone has burgundy socks pulled down low.)
* A Redskins fan yelling "hey Derrick!" at Durant Brooks.
* Clinton Portis going through warm up drills with his bright yellow Nike high-tops loose, the tongues flapping all around.
* Daniel Snyder wearing sunglasses inside a shady stadium at around 6 o'clock.
* And two brothers, Anthony and Robert Sewell, heckling the wingtips off of Snyder.
Among their joint offerings:
"Dan Snyder! Why don't you try to go buy Kings Dominion! Buy Kings Dominion Dan! Six Flags sucks! You need to clean up the Landover Six Flags. Six Flags is ghetto in P.G. Dan Snyder, go buy Kings Dominion, because Six Flags is GHETTO, especially in P.G. You know it. You know you hear me. Clean that up. Clean P.G. Six Flags up. C'mon, Dan. Stop sweating, Dan. Clean it up."
He definitely heard. There was no way not to. ""He won't look, but he knows," Anthony said. Mike Wise started talking about the Sewells on Washington Post Live, explaining to the panel that he couldn't hear them because of some loud fans. He was right; the Sewells are loud. They also saw Steve Tisch, and Anthony asked for a job.
"We'd be a Super Bowl contender every year if I was on the sideline!" he yelled. "I motivate men to do great things, that's what I do, that's what I do Mr. Tisch, that's what I do. I motivate men to do great things."
(I asked what he actually does. "Actually I'm a real estate investor and I work with Hewlett Packard in IT--best IT systems on the planet," he told me. "But in THIS building, I motivate men.)
"I'll have you in the Super Bowl, at least in the running, every year," Anthony promised Tisch. "You put me on the staff, it's over. I motivate men. I motivate men, all right?"
"Where do I sign?" Tisch asked, laughing, and the whole end zone laughed with him.
The heckling also spread to the players. "Hey London, what's your last name?" they shouted at London Fletcher. "Fletcher-Baker? Where'd the baker come from? You make muffins now?"
Santana Moss walked by.
"Santana can't speak English, Santana can't speak English!" they shouted. "Santana speaks like a daggone third grader, from a BAD family. He speaks like a Neanderthal."
I asked them about their particular emphasis on the Six Flags thing, and they went crazy again.
"I know all about Daniel Snyder's little slum amusement park, Six Flags," Anthony said. "If you let you your children go there, you're a bad parent."
"Awful place," Robert said.
"Awful," Anthony agreed. "Awful, awful, awful, awful. He's investing in a freaking ghetto hole. I mean, it's awful that he puts his name on an amusement park which is a ghetto hole. Actually, my mother wanted to take [my kids] there, I said no. I said, 'Oh, you are crazy.' They will not go. And she ended up taking them to Six Flags in New Jersey, which is better."
Then he started talking to Giants' receiver Domenik Hixon's dad.
