Washington Examiner Profiles DC’s Number One Sports Fan (And CNN’s Lead Political Anchor)

The Washington Examiner profiles Washington DC’s number one sports fan, and he just happens to have a pretty high-profile TV news job as well.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is already well-known as a lover of the Redskins, Wizards, Caps and Nats, but the Examiner notes that he is also a regular at the NBA All Star Game. This year’s game is being televised by TNT, a sister network to CNN.

Blitzer also shares his thoughts on the Nationals, thoughts that are familiar to this Met fan’s heart:

A“I want to see my team get ready for an exciting season,” he said. “I go to as many games as possible, given my crazy schedule. This is going to be a strong year for us. I have a good feeling and will do some scouting in Florida this weekend.”

But like most D.C. fans, he wishes the teams weren’t so erratic. “I just wish we could win a bit more often,” he said, adding: “I have hope.”
