Nationals’ Harper Wears Redskins Apparel

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 27, 2012 – 11:59 am

When it comes to the DC sports community, we usually try to keep an eye out for crossover support, especially in the direction of the Burgundy and Gold.

Last fall, Capitals’ owner Ted Leonsis came out to FedExField for the Sept. 18 win over the Arizona Cardinals.  When the Nationals traded for pitcher Gio Gonzalez, he ended his first radio interview with a “Hail to the Redskins.”  And when the Wizards’ Roger Mason hits hotels on the road, he used to go by the moniker of his favorite Redskins player, Doug Williams.

Now, from spring training in Viera, Fla., it appears that Nationals’ top prospect Bryce Harper is getting his season kicked off with some love for the Redskins (via NBC-4’s @DanHellie):

For those of you that follow the Nats, you’re probably aware of the fact that Harper–a native of Las Vegas, Nev.–is a professed Dallas Cowboys fan.

Awkward.

But as Hellie wryly noted in his tweet, Harper appears to be “coachable,” and must finally understand that his Washingtonian fans have no love for the Dallas star.  Best of luck to the young man and his team, and let’s hope he continues to be a swift learner.
