Wale is a common fixture at D.C. sporting events, so it wasn’t unusual to see him cheering on the Wizards at Verizon Center last night. But what made him particularly noticeable sitting courtside was the incredible, diamond-encrusted tribute to the Redskins he had hanging around his neck. 

“I’m showing love for my team,” he told me. “Love for my city.”

That “love” needs a separate insurance policy and a body guard.

The local rapper’s night didn’t end at the buzzer. Wale offered a photo of some one-on-one  time with Ted Leonsis, with this caption:

“Me and my man Ted after the wiz win .. Ps I stole it”
