          Rizzo gives DC residents a reason to smile

          That's not just any trophy on the Nats GM's mantel

          It was a video chat that turned into a World Series celebration.

          On what would have been the Nationals' 安徽快3开奖直播 opener for the 安徽快3开奖直播 Major League Baseball season -- and a day to commemorate their first title in team history -- the Commissioner’s Trophy was displayed in Washington, D.C., thanks to an impromptu showing by general manager Mike Rizzo.

          “It was by chance,” Rizzo said on a conference call Friday. “My wife was having a virtual happy hour. She was on with 10 or so of our friends. I thought because it was Opening Day, I figured that I would show them the trophy on the virtual call.”

          Perhaps more than just those on the call would enjoy getting a glimpse of the trophy, Rizzo thought. People had been looking forward to seeing the championship banner raised and watching a ring ceremony at Nationals Park for months since Washington beat Houston in Game 7 back in late October. Those festivities have been put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic, but Rizzo found his own way to get the fans involved last week.

          “I figured, why not put [it] in the front window where people, if they drive by or walk by, can see it and kind of get a good feeling [about] it being Opening Day [to] remind people what Opening Day is all about -- at the end of this marathon, starting today, gets you this trophy,” Rizzo said.

          Rizzo drew attention, both in Washington, D.C., and on the internet, as the coveted hardware shined into the city.

          “It was actually a big hit,” Rizzo said. “We caused a couple of traffic issues because people were pulling over, getting out and taking pictures. It became a thing, I guess. I’m not a big social media person, but I guess it was trending pretty well on the social media scale.”
