Dan Snyder Brought Ricky Gervais Back. Maybe There’s Hope for Donovan McNabb?

For the celebrity-obsessed print edition of Washington City Paper, I wrote this week about Dan Snyder's increasing renown in Tinseltown.
Locals here might be surprised to find out that the Washington Redskins might not be the most famous property currently under Snyder's control, at least not on the global stage.
Believe it or not, for a few years [...]

Dan Snyder, Junk Dealer

Maybe Dan Snyder has too much time on his hands now that football people at Redskins Park are making some football decisions. In any case, there are reports Snyder's back to making Gekkoesque business deals away from the NFL operation.
The Wall Street Journal wrote yesterday that Snyder recently sold "Junk" bonds for Dick Clark Productions, a company he owns. From the Journal (subscription required):

Why, yes, it is!

Cheap Seats Daily: Hey, Dan Snyder: How’d That Dick Clark Deal Work Out for Six Flags Stockholders?

It's not clear to me which is the bigger travesty: Vinny Cerrato keeping his job so long after running the Redskins into the ground, or Dan Snyder staying atop Six Flags despite making all the wrong moves since taking over the now-bankrupt theme park chain in 2005.
Six Flags' reorganization is nowhere near complete, and god [...]
