Having comprehensively covered the D.C. sports world’s connection with planking, I was obviously crushed when Deadspin and then the rest of the world beat me to the story of the District Ultras planking during halftime of Wednesday night’s D.C. United match.
I mean, the District Ultras are my people. I’ve eaten gourmet cheese and drank poisonous punch with those people. And now they’re planking and national sites are reporting it before I am. Terrible.
Anyhow, because I’m incorrigible, I will proceed with some photographic selections from their halftime stunt, taken from their Facebook page.
“We were just being stupid,” one Ultra e-mailed me, but I’d disagree. They were just being awesome.
