Make room on the Redskins bandwagon for Dutch musician Tijs Michiel Verwest, known in dance clubs around the world as the famous DJ Tiësto, or simply “Tiësto.”
For those of you that don’t frequent the rave, Tiësto has released 66 singles and 79 remixes in the last 15 years. He has been nominated for 61 international awards, and has walked home with 48 pieces of hardware. If you follow club music, he needs no introduction.
If you don’t, his introduction doesn’t mean much. Just trust me that he’s a big deal.
The important part is that he’s officially a big fan of the Redskins, as he revealed to his 1,033,590 followers on his Twitter account (@Tiesto):
@Tiesto: “Can’t wait for RG3 🙂”
[Editor’s Disclaimer: It is my responsibility as the Gandalf of this blog, to remind fans that no matter what world-famous DJ’s are reporting, the Redskins have not selected a player for the 2012 Draft, and likely will not know the pick until the eve of the April 26th announcement. That is all.]
It’s very exciting to hear that the Redskins (and Chris Cooley) have celebrity fans in the Netherlands, but it’s also nice to know that Tiësto will be playing at Club Glow tonight in D.C. If you go to the show, you will see Redskins center and noted Tiësto fan Erik Cook in attendance:
It should be noted that before the show, Tiësto will also be Rocking The Red at a Washington Capitals hockey game. I’m not sure what the Washington sports connection is, but I won’t complain.
Welcome to Redskins Nation, Tijs!
