Matthew McConaughey Attends Redskins Practice

Anything Redskins-related that is unrelated to the name debate is worth writing at this point. That being said, here is photographic evidence from News4's Dianna Russini that Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is currently watching the team's practice with owner Dan Snyder. 

Alright, alright, alright.

McConaughey is in town for a charitable event at the Alamo Drafthouse in Ashburn this evening. Despite being a native Texan, he became a Redskins fan at a young age.

“Longhorn in college, but Washington Redskins in the NFL,” he said last year. “I grew up watching westerns with my father; I was always rooting for the Indians instead of the Cowboys. My favorite food was hamburgers growing up; they had a linebacker, no. 55, Chris Hanburger. And then John Riggins. When you’re 4 years old, that’s why you really commit to a team, for reasons like that. It goes way back.”
