Allen is a big and unabashed Redskins fan. His dad was once the team's coach; his brother is now the general manager. Last week, he held a tailgate event outside the Redskins' stadium with his wife. During the game, Allen ruffled some fans' feathers when he made an unannounced appearance on the radio broadcast and promoted his Senate bid. "And are you in the fourth quarter of the election cycle right now? Where does it stand?" the announcer asked Allen, according to a transcript posted by the Washington Post. "Yeah, we're in the fourth quarter, there's about three possessions left," Allen responded. "We're working hard. And anybody who uses electricity, buys a car or loves the Redskins should be on our side." He'll be making that case in a single paid ad Sunday.
