Despite the dreary weather outside in the DMV, the pediatrics floor of the Georgetown University Hospital was made a little brighter today with a visit from Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander.

Even though Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan couldn’t feel the excitement of suiting up for the big game on Sunday, he did feel a twinge of state pride for his native Indiana.
