If you haven't heard, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is a rare breed of horrible human. His list of offenses is long and heinous and is best summed up in Washington City Paper's "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Synder"--the same article that Snyder is now suing WCP for because he thinks it's mean (though he admits he hasn't read it).
Anyhow, the 2005-06 season was the greatest (and sort of the worst) season ever for Seahawks fans, with the team clinching the NFC Championship and playing in (and losing) its first Super Bowl.
That season also marked the lowest point for Snyder--a fact every Hawks fan should take pride in.
Speaking to The New York Times for a Q&A, Snyder discussed many things, including why many Redskins fans are praying for his death.
He also discussed this.
Have the Redskins ever made you cry?
Losing to Seattle in 2006 did. I thought that was our year.
There you have it: Though we can't watch post-game footage of the Seahawks teammates crying with joy after a Super Bowl win, we can take heart that after the first-round divisional matchup in 2006, in which Seattle eliminated Washington 20-10, Dan Snyder--professional sports' most godawful prick--was sobbing like a girl into a big pile of ill-gotten cash.
