Daniel Snyder Plans To Refile Lawsuit Against Washington City Paper

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder plans to refile his lawsuit against Washington City Paper Tuesday, according to an opinion column he penned Monday night for The Washington Post.

Columnist Dave McKenna struck a nerve last November with Snyder in his article titled “The Cranky Redskins Guide to Dan Snyder.”

Ever since Howard Cosell popularized the garish blazer in the ’70s, broadcast reporter Craig Sager has been refining a wardrobe that melds Ringling Brothers clown with Cotton Club pimp. When Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s home run record in 1974, Sager met him at home plate wearing a long white overcoat. After a Boston Celtics game in 2009, Kevin Garnett implored Sager – sporting a pink-checked jacket, red-striped shirt, and powder-blue tie: “You take the outfit home and you burn it.”
