Comrades in ArmsPosted on October 08, 2009
Professional athletes like and respect one another. I think in DC more than other towns, too! Many of our players have been embraced and visa versa by the Washington Wizards, DC United, Washington Nationals and Washington Redskins. They come to our games. We go to their games. They socialize together as well. See this Skins blog post about Alex Ovechkin and his three point attempts on the field. I also know that the coaches and GMs talk amongst themselves as well. There is deep mutual respect between teams and execs between sports. These players and execs are all brothers in arms. It is nice to see.
