Gio Gonzalez: ‘Hail to the Redskins’


(Mark Gail/THE WASHINGTON POST)

And Gio Gonzalez? On his first night in Washington, he went to a Caps game wearing red.

“I was at the Capitals game and I got all the love in the world from all the fans,” he told reporters.

Later that night, he ran up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. And on his second day in town, he did an interview with ESPN 980, whose hosts ended the interview in typical fashion by wishing him well.

“Hey guys, one more thing before I go,” Gonzalez then interrupted. “I just want to say Hail to the Redskins.”

Dude’s either got good PR handlers, or he knows how to make a fanbase happy.

“I finally found a home,” he also told the station. “I’m looking forward to competing and trying to bring home a World Series title.”
