D.C. United players in hoodies

My colleague Steven Goff sent out a few Tweets about D.C. United players wearing hoodies during the introductions before Friday night’s home game. Goff reported that four players — Dwayne De Rosario, Nick DeLeon, Maicon Santos and Brandon McDonald — were wearing the hoodies, which have obviously become an oft-used athletic symbol of Trayvon Martin protests in recent days.

Someone asked Goff if the hoodies were weather-related; “It’s not cold,” he responded.

As seen here, in a photo by Tony Quinn, McDonald (far left) and De Rosario — MLS’s reigning MVP — kept the hoodies on during the pre-game team photo. That’s not a look I’ve often seen during pre-game soccer team photos.
