We Are All Dave McKenna LXXXV

Here's your daily link to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," which we'll be posting until [Daniel] Snyder's dumbass libel suit goes straight to Hell, where it belongs.

Today's topic: Yesterday's headline on a McKenna story. Specifically, "Dan Snyder-Owned Football Team Announces Deal With Dan Snyder-Owned Broadcasting Company to Air Games on Dan Snyder-Owned Radio Station."

Earlier this week, the Washington Redskins and Red Zebra Broadcasting jointly trumpeted a new deal that will keep the team's game broadcasts on WTEM-AM "through the 2015 season."

In announcing the alliance, Chuck Sapienza, director of programming for WTEM's parent company Red Zebra, said, "We are very excited to continue our partnership with the Washington Redskins and look forward to an exciting five years with Coach Shanahan."

Oh, to be a fly on the wall during the negotiations that led to this extension!

Or not. Not mentioned anywhere in the press release touting the pact, but confirmed by Dan Snyder's spokesperson Tony Wyllie, is the fact that the broadcasting company and the radio station are still both owned by Snyder. And, of course, so is the team.



Washington, Danny Boy is officially your professional football overlord.
