    Poor guy can’t even get his name spelled right.

    The front page tease for a really kind story in today’s Washington Post about Dan Snyder’s run atop Six Flags(no mention amid all the turnaround talk that the company went another $134 million in the red in 2008) had the chairman of the board’s name as “Daniel Synder.

    In this case, that spelling was likely unintentional. But, for Snyder, the letter arrangement couldn’t be more unfortunate: Snyder haters have been using “Synder” in blog posts and even Snyder’s own message board for years just to poke him.

    Though if Jason La Canfora was anywhere near the control room at press time, who knows?
