WASHINGTON — Whether “you like that” or not, the Washington Redskins are the No. 1 sports show in town. The Dallas Cowboys are their No. 1 rival, which makes Dallas Week one of the most important weeks on the sports calendar.
It is a game that divides families, sets coworkers at odds, and has definitely led to a some hostilities in traffic. It is the ultimate game of good vs. evil, and you are either with the home team or against them.
It would appear that Washington Wizards star John Wall has chosen his stance on the matter, appearing on the pregame sidelines wearing a No. 22 Cowboys Emmitt Smith jersey:
That’s the look of someone who knows he’s going to hear about this forever. To the Redskins credit, they also have a photo of him in a Skins jersey, so…
As @recordsANDradio also points out, fellow Wiz kid Bradley Beal seems to be pulling for the Cowboys today too:
While Wall may not be paying close attention to Twitter, Beal got instant feedback on his social faux pas. He tried to play it off as a St. Louis thing, which absolutely no one in D.C. cares about:
This follows the Wizards light-heartedly objecting to Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins saying he wanted the Redskins to be boring winners like the Spurs. The difference is that the Wizards have no rivalry with the Spurs.
This has also been a tough offseason for the Wizards duo, who made waves by individually admitting that they have communication issues and don’t always play nice together.
To continue drawing negative attention, particularly after Beal signed a franchise-record extension, seems a bit disrespectful.
What do you think?
