As if Dan Snyder didn't have enough controversy on his plate — getting leveled in this season's "South Park" premiere and again by the "Daily Show" a day later for his insistence on keeping a racially charged mascot — the Washington Redskins owner is washing down that crow with expired World Cup beer.

As Steinberg notes upon plugging the fan's almost four-month-old code into Budweiser's "Track Your Bud" website, the "Bud has passed its freshness date" — a warning that is accompanied by the brewmaster's promise to "buy you a fresh Budweiser. Please contact us."
Cue emails from bitter beer-faced fans still hungover from a 45-14 loss to the New York Giants.
This isn't the first time the Redskins hawked old concessions, since — as Steinberg again notes — the team once sold peanuts from an out-of-business airline. Daniel Snyder, forever antiquated.
