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.
I have a question but I need some clarification first. Barra Brava- is the crew that cheers like crazy at DC united games correct?— Ian Desmond (@IanDesmond20) August 13, 2013
After some clarification, Desmond asked his followers this question.
Okay, so how to I convince the Barra Brava to come be crazy people at a baseball game?— Ian Desmond (@IanDesmond20) August 13, 2013
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.
