Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: 'I hate the Redskins'
'I'm not really much of a football fan,' Justice Scalia said recently. To the extent I am, I hate the Redskins. In fact, I always root for Dallas.'
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is known for his sometimes controversial, always conservative positions delivered from the bench. But his contentious views extend beyond the courtroom.
In a speech Friday in Houston about Christianity, Scalia was asked if he was a Redskins fan. A seemingly innocuous (if unrelated) question for a man appointed to the Supreme Court in 1986 ... until Scalia opened his mouth.
“I’m not really much of a football fan," he said, via the Washington Post. "To the extent I am, I hate the Redskins. In fact, I always root for Dallas.”
Scalia was also asked about the current situation in Syria but on matters of foreign policy, the justice was able to show restraint.
"Naw, I shouldn’t talk about that. I have strong views on it, though.”
So there you have it: The hometown professional football team: Scalia hates them. Syria: He can't talk about it publicly.
