Snyder Won't Settle for a Tie


Daly, Dan, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


There's no truth to the rumor that, after their narrow loss to Arizona, the Redskins asked for a recount.

* * *

This did happen, though: Before the game, Dan Snyder complained to Cardinals officials that the food server in his private box was - horrors - wearing a Cardinals tie. (The Cardinals people rolled their eyes and found another tie for the "offending" gentleman.)

You can't take Dan anywhere. You really can't.

Before the season is over, the Redskins probably will have four kickers on the roster - one for kickoffs, one for field goals, one for extra points and one for onside kicks.

Stat of the Week: Fourteen kickers in the league are 30 or older, and three are in their 40s - new Redskin Eddie Murray (44), Gary Anderson (41) and Morten Andersen (40).

Hide the women and children. Marty McSorley's suspension expires Feb. 21.

Imagine how bad the Capitals' record would be if they didn't play in the Southeast Division.

Tiger Woods didn't just win three of the four majors this year, he also won one of the three World Golf Championships (the NEC Invitational), finished second in another (the Match Play), and took second in the Players Championship and the Tour Championship. (He also was fifth in the only major he didn't win, the Masters). It could be 100 years before somebody plays that well again in the majors and semi-majors.

Unless, of course, Tiger does it next year.

Johnny Holliday, longtime radio voice of the Maryland Terps, saw the item in last Sunday's column on "Loose Balls," Terry Pluto's book on the American Basketball Association, and just had to call me. …
