PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder apparently forgot what holiday the country just celebrated. Snyder wished everyone a “happy Thanksgiving” while introducing new head coach Ron Rivera during a press conference, even though it’s Jan. 2.

Fans were more than happy to mock Snyder on social media for his blunder.
Happy Thanksgiving? Oh dear God.

Dan Snyder is an alien from another planet. Just clueless in every way. At least this made me laugh. Who in the world opens a press conference on January 2nd with "Happy Thanksgiving". Unbelievable. https://t.co/xuPce7AF0O

The Redskins missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season after finishing last in the NFC East with a 3-13 record. As the Redskins enjoy their offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles face the Seattle Seahawks at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday in the Wild-Card round of the playoffs.
