Less than two months after The Onion’s “Get Out of My Face” talking-head spoof show nailed the Wizards, saying “the best they can hope for is to just lock themselves out and let the league go on,” that same show went after the Redskins.
The bit was that the Redskins traded their No. 2 draft pick before using it.
“You leave a nice meaty draft pick lying around the Redskins office, Dan Snyder’s gonna trade it,” one fake talking head said.
“Of course he’s going to trade it,” the other one agreed. “Washington can’t use a draft pick themselves. They barely know what the draft is. They don’t know if there’s a building to go to, or if you just throw the name out loud and hope he shows up to camp.”
And so on. Watch it here.
