Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM)


Nats snap their losing streak tonight with a nifty 4-0 blanking of the Mets behind the arm of John "Owl Man" Lannon and some solid D. Woo Hoo!!

I'm not going to go so far as some of the folks in the broadcast booth and get too worked up over whether this is the Turning Point of the season. We shall see about that.

Instead, I'll just say that dayum it's good to win one.

I see your beloved Nats have a four game stand here in Brewtown next week. We will be happy to help lower your "magic number".

Although, historically the Brewers have fallen apart at some time after the All Star game each season. There may be some hope for you after all...

Is it really a "magic number" of 55 (and counting). Shouldn't it be the "number of ignomimy?" Or perhaps the "seppuku special number?"

I think "magic number" is too fun and pleasant.

BTW, I will be going to my first game of the summer this weekend. I can only hope the Padres aren't allowed to wear those terrible cammo uniforms. I realize that they support the troops and all, but it is baseball...

What with Mets players going down faster than Paris Hilton, there maybe a race to the bottom. "Anti-pennant race" needs a better name.

Speaking of the PAdres, as a lifelong fan, I say dammit, why can't you save up your precious few Nats victories for games vs. teams like the Dodgers (ptui!) and Giants?
