Musings of a (D.C.) Sports Nut

If I want to talk about sports in general, here's the place!!

It won’t be long NOW…

It’s 1:40 on Thursday afternoon as I’m writing this, with no score between the Nats and Mets after 2 1/2 innings.
At this time tomorrow, I should be somewhere between New Haven and Providence en route to Boston to see the Nats take on the Red Sox that night.
Well, me and this douchebag:

My brother Larry. (He’s in the middle, w/me on the right.) Don’t sweat this, people; he doesn’t know I write this blog…lol
Anyway, back to my point.
Before he retires from the government in January, he wanted to see Fenway Park…and talked me into going along. (Willingly, I might add.) I figured I may never do this myself, so at least I’ll be able to say I saw a Red Sox game once in my lifetime.
Oh, did I neglect to mention who’ll be pitching for the Nats tomorrow night?

Shows you what a rainout can do to have this fall into your lap…lol
First place Nats…man, that sounds so fucking good to say!!

So anyway, back to the trip…
Having to leave here close to 4 am is a bitch, I admit. Being trapped for 40+ hours w/my brother, would almost make me beg for a one-way ticket to Auschwitz…

But like I said before, it’s worth it…all $200 of it. (That’s what I gotta hand over to him to pay for all this. Subway[s] rides, Amtrak ride, hotel room…motherfucker!!)
With any luck, I’ll try to write about this on my Nats blog (http://nastynatslivehereandeverywhere.blogspot.com)…so try and follow that one, okay? Here’s some other places I write:

A brief moment…

I’m taking this break from watching the Caps game, to let you know I’ll be taking a trip come June.
To of all places…Boston.
Now normally I would put this on my Nats blog (on Blogger), but I figured I’d try and drum up interest in this blog. So…

Here with a picture of me (on the right) with my brother Larry (center) at Nats Park in July of 2010.
The guy on the left is Larry’s buddy Charles Pannuzzio, who’s the assistant managing editor of the Northern Virginia Daily (in…I shit you not…Strasburg, VA). These two go on trips together for baseball/hockey/what have you.

Charles’ friend Steve is in this picture between us. It’s his camera where these pics came from.
Anyway, details on our trip to come in the future. (By “our”, it’s Larry and me. I should’ve said that at the outset…lol)

I promise I will let everyone know.
