D.C. official wears Steelers hat on front page of Washington Post

Hey, here’s a nice little Groundhog Day story on A1 of The Washington Post. Don’t say we don’t cover the important stuff any more.

Wait, what’s that little image on that little hat worn by the man in the second picture? A man elected by D.C. voters, posing in front of a camera owned by the biggest paper in town? Surely not? Couldn’t be?

“Can someone explain the Steelers hat worn by a DC official on the front page of the Post this morning???” someone wrote to me on Twitter early Friday morning.

Well, it’s Mike Silverstein, who appears to be a longtime Pittsburgh resident and Steelers fan of some fame, who actually writes about the team for sports blogs and stuff. And his role in D.C. as an ANC commissioner possibly doesn’t require allegiance to every Washington sports team. I guess.


Still, though. I’m ready for the recall effort if you are.

(Joking, Mike, joking. Just don’t make it so obvious next time, please.)
