Ian Desmond wants Nats anthem tradition

Ian Desmond took a moment on Twitter to get a little patriotic. While he didn’t offer his own opinion on Orioles fans yelling “Oh!” during the anthem, he did propose a Nats version of the tradition.

Responses ranged from doubtful to positive to sarcastic, but Desmond has vowed to not only work with the front office to encourage the practice, but to also lead the charge on the field.

I will be very impressed with Desmond’s influence if he can get 40,000 fans on board tonight, what with this being the biggest series in the history of all Nats series. Also, fans at soccer games are known for singing in unison, and you have to admit that this sounds pretty cool:

More Nats
