In honor of Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey’s appearance at Redskins practice Wednesday, we’ve put together a list of the best celebrity sightings at D.C.-area sporting events.

 5. Did you know Redskins team owner Dan Snyder is a partner with Tom Cruise in Cruise/Wagner Productions and was an executive producer of the 2008 film Valkyrie, starring Cruise as German Army officer?

Well, back in September 2006 Cruise and his then-wife, Katie Holmes, were guests of Snyder’s at a game against the Minnesota Vikings.

4. Julianne Hough (professional ballroom dancer, country music singer, actress) is dating Washington Capitals star Brooks Laich and has been spotted at a few games at the Verizon Center.

3. It had been an annual ritual for the Obama family to watch the Oregon State Beavers basketball team play a Washington-area team when Michelle Obama’s brother Craig Robinson was the coach (he was recently fired, however). The First Family watched the Beavers take on the Maryland Terrapins at Comcast Center in November.

1. Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak is a huge Washington Capitals fan, and apparently splits his time between homes in California and Severna Park, Maryland, so he’s been seen at a game or two.
