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

By Alex Weprin 

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.”
