D.C. Mayor Gray Visits Redskins Park

Posted Dec 5, 2011

Washington, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray visited Redskins Park on Monday and appeared on “Redskins Nation” on Comcast SportsNet to discuss a variety of topics, including his efforts to entice the team to relocate its training facility to the district.


Washington, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray visited Redskins Park on Monday. He appeared on “Redskins Nation” on Comcast SportsNet to discuss a variety of topics, including his efforts to entice the team to relocate its training facility to the district.

Gray spoke with Redskins Broadcast Network’s Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation.”

“We are certainly very, very interested in the team coming back [to Washington, D.C.],” Gray said. “We focused a lot on the training facility because we have this kind of oddity where we are the Washington Redskins that play their games in Maryland and practice in Virginia.”

In early November, Gray traveled to Tampa, Fla., to tour the Buccaneers’ training facility and get an idea what it would take to lure the Redskins back to Washington, D.C.

“Several of us went down and visited the Tampa Bay facility,” the mayor said. “I’m telling you, almost everywhere I go, people say, ‘Bring them back, bring them back.’ And I say, ‘Well, we are working on it.’”

Gray also discussed this Saturday’s Army-Navy game at FedExField and the impact the game could have on the Washington, D.C., region.

It’s the first time in the 112-year history of the historic game will be played in the region.

“To have Army-Navy here is real cool,” Gray said. “It doesn’t matter how good those two teams are, there is such a history and such a tradition.”

He added: “Being the nation’s capital, you would almost think they would have it here every year.”

As for the economic impact the game may have on the region, Gray said: “We hope the people will stay in the city. We feel as if they will come in and use the restaurants. We hope they will come in early, not just on Saturday, or Friday – come in for two or three days and be part of the exciting activity going on in the city right now.”

Gray said he is a Redskins fan. He was in attendance at Sunday’s game against the New York Jets at FedExField.

He praised Redskins fans as being among the best in sports.

“I think we have the greatest fans in the world,” Gray said. “There may be a depression in the city on a Monday after a loss, but you know by midweek people have sort of gotten over it and they’re hopeful about the next Sunday. I put our fans right at the top of the list.”
