DC has a genuine world celebrity in its midst. Wayne Rooney recently signed with D.C. United, and as the Washington Post has noted, he has more Twitter followers than all of DC’s sports teams and their biggest stars combined. In his native Britain, Rooney’s hairline is a matter of national importance. But in Washington, Guardian reporter Les Carpenter discovered, very few people know who he is.
This is probably a nice change for Wayne Rooney, who can’t even get away with a drunken VW ride back home. This is an ever-more worldly place, but the planet’s most popular sport still commands a smaller percentage of the region’s mental real estate than hockey. So don’t forget to check out Clarendon, Wayne Rooney!
In fact, you could argue that Rooney will be the rare global celebrity who simultaneously will be what we call “Washington famous”—subject to wall-to-wall tabloid coverage back home, but engendering the sort of quiet, recognizing-Janet Napolitano-makes-me-part-of-the-cosmopolitan-tribe thrill here inside the Beltway. For many people here, intermittent fame is the ideal. It’s what lets you fill Politics and Prose during your book talk and then dine in peace across the street. (That unwritten compact used to cover most administration officials, too, but it’s now off.) It’s also one of the underappreciated reasons for living here: You can do work that touches a lot of people and still have plenty of elbow room at the farmers market. The fame Wayne Rooney enjoyed in Britain looks more like the type of fame young people expect–dumb nicknames, intrigue, sordid sex scandals. Here he’ll be able to go to work, come home, and maybe even go to dinner without making Playbook. He’ll of course need to avoid David Brooks if this is what he wants.

Steve Birnbaum will always be a Southern California kid at heart. After D.C. United drafted the defender in 2014, the nation’s capital presented no shortage of culture shock. “Everything was just so fast-paced,” says Birnbaum, 27. “I would ride my skateboard to the Metro and I’d be wearing shorts and a hat or whatever. Everyone would be in suits … staring at me like, ‘Does this guy have a job?’ ” Well, yes: Over five professional seasons, Birnbaum has earned MLS All-Star honors, made 11 appearances for the U.S. national team and regularly worn the captain’s armband for a United club that will christen its new stadium, Audi Field, on Saturday. He also can now call himself a true Washingtonian, having relocated from Arlington to Logan Circle two years ago with his fiancee, Jeanne Shewmaker, the director of merchandising at Georgetown boutique Tuckernuck. While there’s no soccer on Birnbaum’s D.C. dream day, the sports world still looms large.
I’d love to start by playing golf. I have a buddy who manages 1757 Golf Club out in Virginia and I’d drive out there, get an early tee time — a 7:30 a.m. tee time is ideal for me. So I’d wake up at 5 and play until 11 or noon.
I’d then get home in Logan Circle and ride my bike from Logan to Peacock Cafe in Georgetown, which is my favorite restaurant in the city — especially for lunch and brunch. I usually get the Sophia Loren, a turkey sandwich. Shahab [Farivar], the [co-]owner, is great, and he always recommends it. It’s a day off, so maybe I’ll have a beer. They also have these cookie ice cream almost sandwiches, so I’d get that. And I’d then stop by my fiancee’s work in Georgetown.
