D.C. United players play drums in the stands


(Courtesy DCUnited.com.)
There aren’t many better player-fan traditions in D.C. sports than the irregular habit of D.C. United players who aren’t on the gameday roster heading into the stands and banging drums with supporter groups.

Christian Gomez has done it. Jaime Moreno has done it. Owner Will Chang has done it.

Now two more names have been added to the list. Andy Najar (illness) and Brandon McDonald (suspension) weren’t able to play Saturday night against Seattle, so instead, they took to the stands. In the second half of a 0-0 tie, the two players spent time with four supporters groups, including Barra Brava, Screaming Eagles, La Norte and District Ultras.

Here are a bunch of photos of the two players hanging with the Barra Brava, via that group’s Facebook page and D.C. United’s page. This is a bit more photogenic than would be Jayson Werth in the Red Porch.
