Dan Snyder, Mike Shanahan stop by Waco Hooters while scouting RGIII (Picture)
The Redskins were on the Baylor campus Wednesday checking out the pro day of likely their next quarterback, Robert Griffin III. The Redskins’ contingent, which included owner Dan Snyder, head coach Mike Shanahan, his son and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, and GM Bruce Allen, flew into Waco on Tuesday and evidently soon after made their way to a local Hooters. Can’t imagine a more awkward fit than Dan Snyder going to Hooters.
According to one Waco-area Skins fan, that wasn’t the first restaurant/bar they went to Tuesday night. On a Redskins message board, the fan wrote a first person account of meting the team’s brass at another watering hole that night, where they were meeting with Griffin. (Among the more interesting details, the fan recounts a conversation he has with Allen: “He talked about how excited they are about RG3 and how Griffin is glad it wasn’t Cleveland that moved up to number 2.” Yikes, Cleveland just can’t catch a break.) The thread became quite popular also turned up the above Hooters photo. Shanahan and Snyder can say they went for the wings, but we all know nobody goes to Hooters for wings (except Pacman Jones).
Oh, and Griffin looks like he’s going to be really good.
