Video: Dan Snyder for some reason wishes everyone a ‘Happy Thanksgiving’
Washington Redskins fans are hoping owner Daniel Snyder can finally get out of his own way enough to put a winning team on the field, but they probably won’t feel good that he doesn’t even seem to know what day of the year it is.
Snyder addressed the media on Thursday at new head coach Ron Rivera’s introductory press conference, and he began by wishing everyone a “Happy Thanksgiving.” He delivered the line almost as if it were intentional.

That’s an awfully strange thing to say to a group of people on Jan. 2, don’t you think?
Snyder’s next remark was that this is the beginning of a “great new year for the Redskins organization,” so it’s surprising that he didn’t realize what he had just said and correct himself. Or, it’s possible Snyder was delivering some sort of inside joke, as Rivera seemed to get quite the kick out of it. Like almost everything else that has gone on with the Redskins in recent years, we have no clue.
Assuming it was a mistake, it was hardly a significant one. However, you can expect a fan base that has showered Snyder with some unflattering chants recently to not let him live it down.
