D.C. sports personalities at Wizards games

The Wizards are an abysmal 0-11, which makes it even more impressive that five different D.C. sports personalities have been seen at the last few Washington home games.

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, United Coach Ben Olsen, and Redskins Kedric Golston, Ryan Kerrigan and Josh Morgan have all been been on hand at Verizon Center, hoping to catch the elusive first win of the season.

“We live nearby,” said Rizzo, who was with his wife in baseline seats for the Utah game. “We come to as many games as we can.”

Golston spent some time with his daughter at the Pacers game, and Kerrigan, Morgan and Olsen got some free basketball when the Wizards went into double overtime against Charlotte. Kerrigan and Morgan stayed through both overtimes. Olsen checked out, possibly when he realized there would not be a shootout. 

Worth noting, while Kerrigan and Olsen got a proper Jumbotron shoutout on Saturday, Morgan’s appearance on the big screen was marred by the fact that, while he was properly identified as Joshua Morgan of the Washington Redskins, the face they showed was not Morgan, but a fan sitting a few seats away.

“That was funny,” a good-natured Morgan said. “People keep wanting to take their picture with him.” 

Random guy gets 15 minutes of fame, and Morgan gets to fly under the radar. Everyone wins.
