Who’d think…?

When’s the last time you saw the Wizards finish above .500…and Michael Jordan wasn’t wearing a Wizards uniform?

Yeah, I know. Blows one’s mind, don’t it? But they’re in the playoffs. Finally, Ted Leonsis made good on his promise to fix the basketball side of his empire.

image

Build a supporting cast around John Wall, and good things will happen. How deep the Wizards go, is anybody’s guess.
But it’ll be fun to watch…unlike the Caps.

image

Kinda sums up our feelings towards this season, don’t it? LMAO
(I actually have a Caps-oriented blog on Blogger, but I’ll continue on with this…lol)
Anyway, this has been a disappointment for us Caps fans. My take on this, is George McPhee needs to be fired as GM. Keep Adam Oates, but McPhee goes. Plain and simple.

Also, find the dead weight on this team and cut it. See who’s down at Hershey, who’s NHL-ready, and give them a chance to make an impact on the team.

image

Guess that’s it. Hope you enjoy reading this…lol

The last one

leave a comment »


Yes, it’s Wednesday.
The Nationals’ season ended last Friday night.
No, I didn’t do this…though it would’ve been a good idea at the time:

image

I’ve just been trying to sort out just what the fuck happened.
The night started off so well, with Bryce Harper & Ryan Zimmerman helping the Nats get off to a 6-0 lead. Up until the top of the 7th, no one panicked.
This next story is true. At the bar I was at Friday night, when Edwin Jackson took to the mound, a fellow Nats fan…wearing (I shit you not) a “Don’t Be a Clown, Bro!” T-shirt…put his head in his hands. If only I paid attention…
At any rate, we were all fine. That is, right up to the point where Drew Storen began to melt down. As the Cardinals start thinking…we have a chance?

image

Sadly, because of Drew…and Ian Desmond…they did. Thus, what had been an early 6-0 lead for the Nats…became instead a 9-7 Cardinals win.
And I’m left with this entry…the last one in my “sharing” format with Google+/Twitter/Blogger. Since none of you bothered to follow the links, I stop as of now. However…
If you still want to see what Friday night was like, there are a pair of videos…made w/my cellphone camera…on my YouTube channel. (The 2nd one is from when I got home, and is a postmortem to the game/night.)
So there it is. No Natitude till spring training.

Am I still breathing?

I don’t have the words to say at this time, to describe what I’m feeling.
I’m still in shock…and it’s been 40+ minutes since Game 4 of the NLDS ended.
Jayson Werth has officially become a sports god in DC, by depositing a ball into the LF bullpen to win it for the Nationals by a 2-1 score over the Cardinals.

image

But, if Ian Desmond doesn’t make the catch of his life in the top of the 9th, this blog entry doesn’t happen. So yeah, this is why I waited 34 fucking years for baseball to come back to Washington!!

image

But damn it, I missed Frank Howard throwing out the 1st pitch today. I keep hoping they’ll bring in Del Unser to do it tomorrow night for Game 5.
(I have a selfish reason for it. He’s the guy who coined the phrase “GO NASTY NATS!!”…which is why my Twitter account is called what it is.)

image

Ross Detwiler started this game…

image

and Drew Storen ended it. Along the way, Jordan Zimmermann and Tyler Clippard struck out 6 out of 7 Cardinals…a walk w/2 out in the 8th in-between.
Now, I just hope my cell phone holds up. Because I won’t be home; I need to be in a bar for Game 5. No joke.

Turdpile of a game

leave a comment »


Take a good look at this picture.

image

This is from the last Senators game on 9/30/71…and lifted by me from a story on Blogger a few years ago about that game.
(For the record, the Senators actually led the Yankees 5-2 in the top of the 9th when the crowd stormed the field. Thus, a 9-0 forfeit win for the Bombers.)
Okay. The reason for the picture? Just this…
The Nats raped their fans today, in much the same way Bob Short (and Calvin Griffith before him) raped Senators fans in moving to Minnesota/Texas, by showing 45,017 people that they’re still the Jeffrey Loria-era Expos.
Let’s face it, the Cardinals came to Nats Park today to play. As for the Nats…at least when the French bent over for Hitler in 1940, it was par for the course.

image

And already on Twitter Cards tweeps are baiting us Nats fans. But unlike Philly/Braves “fans” who troll there, I’m not falling into that trap.
There’s still 2 games for the Nats to win…or one more to lose. Either way, I won’t scream bloody murder.

image

I’ll just stop this sharefest I’ve been doing…meaning, putting these blog entries onto Twitter/Google+/Blogger. Once the Nats’ season ends, so does this.
This WordPress blog was meant for non-baseball sports blogging, anyway. Like…

image

And…

image

Well…you get the point.
And now that you do
