Ben Olsen plays charity tennis, photobombs teammates

(Via D.C. United’s Facebook page.)
D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen played in the Washington Kastles charity tennis extravaganza at Kastles Stadium at the Wharf Tuesday night.

His team won.

And Olsen evidently decided to photobomb his teammates during the ensuing victory celebration.

Olsen’s team, “The Stars,” also included radio personality Mark Plotkin, Ward 7 Councilwoman Yvette Alexander, former Indiana Governor Evan Bayh, ex-Louisiana Senator John Breaux (holding the trophy above), former Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh, economist Alan Krueger, National Economic Council director Gene Sperling, Ohio Congressman Steve LaTourette and a few Kastles regulars.

They were coached by Kastles Coach Murphy Jensen; the team’s Web site reported that after their comeback win, McIntosh performed “unofficially the biggest back handspring in the history of sports celebrations.”

The losing “Stripes” team included Fox News’s Bret Baier, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans and Darrell Green, among others.

Unclear whether any of them were involved in photobombing.
