Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo (and let me emphasize the WASHINGTON NATIONALS part) wore something to the Winter Classic that might stun you.
“It’s a Bobby Hull jersey,” the Chicago-born Rizzo said to the NHL Network’s Billy Jaffe with a big smile. “It’s a throwback.”
When asked why he wore that to the game, Rizzo said, “You gotta be true to your beliefs and true to your youth. This is the team I grew up rooting for.”
Naturally, Jaffe asked if this would cause any issues?
“I think it will,” Rizzo responded.
