Congratulations to the Washington Wizards on making the 2014 NBA Playoffs, and good luck from D.C. United!
Today is the Washington Nationals' Home Opener. So, naturally, we look back to that time Talon body slammed a sausage. Talon, along with other DC mascots, participated in the Presidents' Race on April 1, 2011, and if you ask us, he won.
Good Luck to the Nationals today as Nats Park opens it's gates for the first home game of 2014 against the Atlanta Braves!
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.
