Redskins Players Have Nationals Fever

You weren’t alone if you jumped out of your chair last night when Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth sent shockwaves through the D.C. area after crushing a walk-off home run against the St. Louis Cardinals to force tonight’s decisive Game 5 in the National League Division Series.

Several teammates on the Washington Redskins were also tuned into the game and went directly to Twitter to tell everybody about the game and Werth’s tremendous at-bat, which lasted 13 pitches until it ended.

It’s, of course, not the first time in recent memory the Redskins players have gotten behind a D.C.-area team battling in the playoffs. Remember when they got behind the Washington Capitals during their playoff run last season?

Anyway, here’s those tweets from last night’s Nats thriller, starting with quarterback Robert Griffin III:

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):

Nationals’ Gonzalez: ‘Hail To The Redskins’

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

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.
