Ian Desmond wants you to Stand Up for D.C.

By Molly Bruh

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. Meanwhile, shortstop Ian Desmond, who attended United's July 27th match against the New England Revolution, got a taste of supporters culture, and now wants DCU fans at Nats Park. 

This is how it started.

After some clarification, Desmond asked his followers this question.

After some more Tweets, Desmond Tweeted directly at La Barra Brava and the Screaming Eagles.

One of Washington's most influential journalists, and long time Nats and United fan, Clinton Yates, got in on the conversation.
