LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Political commentator Glenn Beck says he will attend the Washington Redskins game on Sunday with team owner Daniel Snyder.
Beck, the former Fox News commentator who now works for The Blaze, said Tuesday during a production meeting posted on YouTube that he will be sitting with Snyder in the owner’s box for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans at FedEx Field.
“Redskins owner Dan Snyder watched Sunday’s game with the president of the Navajo tribe,” Beck said in the video. “That’s who was in the owner’s box. You know who’s going to be in the owner’s box Sunday wearing a Redskins hat?”
“Glenn Beck,” a staffer said, as Beck nodded his head in approval.
“I might even wear the headdress,” Beck said, adding that he’ll need to research Snyder further so the two would have something to talk about.
“I love the guy,” Beck said. “I don’t know anything about him. Somebody give me some research on him so I know about him, because I’m certainly not going to be able to talk to him about [football].”
The Redskins have not responded to a request from The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg to confirm that Beck will be a guest of Snyder’s at Sunday’s game.
Beck will be there, according to Steve Krakauer, vice president of digital content for The Blaze.
Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly joined Snyder in the owner’s box at last Sunday’s game in Arizona and talked business, not about the ongoing debate over the Redskins’ name and logo.
Shelly said Monday that he and Snyder spoke about expanding an agreement the Navajo tribe made with the team earlier this year.
The Redskins entered into a franchise licensing agreement with the Navajo Arts and Crafts Enterprise for the sale of tribal jewelry, rugs, sand paintings and other items at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
Washington waived the licensing fee for the tribe and is working to open the agreement to the other 31 NFL teams.
Shelly talked to Snyder about funding other possible initiatives including construction of an indoor sports pavilion on the reservation and funding for the Navajo Code Talkers Museum.
