The D.C. love between the Nationals and the Black-and-Red continues. Yesterday, we blogged about Bryce Harper sporting a D.C. United jersey during an interview.
Bryce Harper recently wore his number 34 D.C. United jersey in his weekly sit-down interview with CSN Washington.
"Of course I’m going to rep anything I can from the D.C. area. I’m very excited to see them play, maybe sometime soon," Harper said.
Last year, Chris Pontius and D.C. United presented the Washington Wizards' John Wall a personalized jersey. The point guard has been seen around the country, sporting the Black-and-Red kit, and was most recently spotted in Las Vegas.
Each season, MLS WORKS names Community MVPs from around the league who use soccer to help enhance their community. D.C. United's local MVP is Guy Perez of Richmond, Virginia.
