Nationals’ Gonzalez: ‘Hail To The Redskins’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 26, 2012 – 4:42 pm

via Nationals.com

For whatever reason, it’s not terribly often that there is legitimate crossover in Washington area sports.  Sure, there’s the occasional Redskins player that throws out the first pitch, or the Capitals owner in the stands at a Redskins game, but there isn’t a long-standing relationship.

Washington’s newest sports figure seems likely to change that, however, as newly acquired Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez has gone all in as a Washingtonian.

The Miami, Fla. native–who spent his first four seasons in Oakland, Calif.–is now a Burgundy and Gold-blooded football fan.  He announced as much on his introductory interview with “The Sports Reporters,” Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin, on ESPN 980.

Have a listen:

Welcome to town, Gio, and you’ve passed the first and second tests with your fan base: compliment their football team and take awesome pictures like this:

    Best of luck young man. As a REDSKINS fan, I’m liking already, but as I am a BRAVES fan, not TOO much.
