TJ Oshie traded his jersey for a decade-old, replica Ryan Kerrigan jersey at the WFT-Seahawks game. ‘I was stunned.’
Will Cohen, a junior at Landon High School, went with a friend to see the Washington Football Team play the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. The former Capitals season ticket holder wore a Ryan Kerrigan jersey to the game that his mother bought for him at Dick’s Sporting Goods sometime around 2010.
Sitting in his friend’s club level seats, Will looked around FedEx Field in anticipation of a big Monday Night Football game. The WFT team had won two games in a row, beating Tom Brady and Cam Newton in consecutive weeks. A victory against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks would propel Washington into a playoff spot despite a losing record.
Then Capitals forward TJ Oshie walked up and sat behind Will in the row directly behind him.
“I looked back four times five times in total disbelief,” Will said in an interview recalling that night.
