Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - Even Stevens Division

Nats Hat.jpg

Well, whadayaknow? The Nats finish their first week with a record of 3-3 after taking a pair off Gary's Mets over the weekend. Heck, I can live with that.

While I watched the opener of the Mets series Friday night (a dismal, wind-blown affair in which the Nats just seemed to give up), I was too busy the rest of the weekend to catch the games. However, on Saturday afternoon as I was mowing the back yard, the eldest Llama-ette suddenly came bursting out of the house yelling, "Dad! Dad! Willy Harris just made a diving catch in left with bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 9th to win the game! Isn't that awesome?"

Then on Sunday afternoon, as I cleared some puckerbrush, she again came bursting out of the house, yelling "Dad! Dad! The Nats won again! And Willingham got a grand slam! Isn't that awesome?"

Friends, I tell you truly that even if I screw up every other aspect of raising this kid, I can at least chalk up the instillation of a love of baseball in the win column.

Speaking of wins, I suppose it's going to be tough to get any more soon, since we go to hell Philadelphia for their home opener tonight. On the other hand, the Nats are the only team to have handed teh Phils a loss so far, so who knows?
