Keith Olbermann challenges Daniel Snyder to take the Ice Bucket Challenge

As Ice Bucket Challenge fatigue continues to set in for some, the ALS Association says it’s raised more than $1.35 million in the past two weeks, which is a good thing. ESPN’s Keith Olbermann took the challenge on Wednesday while wearing a New York Rangers jersey and, not losing sight of the viral campaign’s primary purpose, announced he would also be making a donation to ALS research.

Olbermann then nominated a regular target of his criticism regarding the Redskins team name without, of course, using the team name.

“I challenge Dan Snyder, the owner of Washington of the NFL,” Olbermann said. “Good luck.”


How long before Ted Lerner challenges Peter Angelos?
