Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - Celeb-Sighting Bleg Edition

Nats Hat.jpg

Well, how about that? The Nats take a pair off the Padres, getting their second series win in a week and holding the gremlin bogie at 53. (I suppose I ought to figure out the magic number for beating the gremlin bogie, just to be thorough. But I never did care for math.)

We're off to Diane's neck o' the woods to take on the Brewers tonight. My understanding is that the Brewers are a pretty tough team, so we shall see what we shall see. (Just as a side note, years of watching Cheers has made me incapable of thinking of the name Diane without hearing in my mind Rhea Perlman's derisive pronunciation "Doy-annnnn".)

Speaking of seeing, perhaps one of you knows the answer to this question: There is a Heineken's ad that runs during the Nats games. It features two guys at a basketball game. They're just about to sit down in their nosebleed seats when some other fan accidentally spills beer and food all over said seats. The guys are so cool about it that the usher who led them up decides to reward them by taking them courtside instead. Once there, they're handed a couple of Heinies by a beer girl. The ad ends with the camera discovering some chick sitting next to them asking if she can have one as well.

So anyway, every time this ad comes on, the eleven year old says, "Who is she, Dad? I think she's supposed to be someone famous."

To which I reply, "I think you're right, but I don't know who she is."

I won't begin to try and describe the gal. If you've seen the ad, you know what I'm talking about. And the question remains: Who the heck is she?

I guessing its Eva Longoria, who is married to Tony Parker.

Yes, that's the one.

What does she do, exactly?

And who the heck is Tony Parker?

(No, I don't get out much.)

(Wikipedia) And no, she isnt related to EVAN.

Parker is apparently a pretty good guy and an All-Star point guard. He is, however, a cheese-eating surrender monkey.

14-6. Gah. We may be strong, but we make up for that in inconsistency. This is probably the start of the annual slide out of contention for any kind of playoff spot.
