Two weeks (and counting)...

Come June 8th, and I'm pretty sure I'be talked about it, I'll be at Fenway Park to see the Nats take on the Red Sox.
(This is on my brother's "bucket list", BTW.)
What'll happen with this blog, is I hope to write about the experience as the trip develops...40 hours altogether, from leaving here in Luray (around 4 a.m. Friday morning) to coming back close to 7 or 8 p.m. Saturday night.
God, I hope WiFi works along the Amtrak
(Oh, I'm on the right in both pictures.)

And the "Battle Of The Beltways" is underway...

What with the Nats and O's playing above expectations, it looks like this year's installment just might be fun to watch.
O's take it tonight in 11 innings, 2-1. Edwin Jackson gets a no-decision after 8 IP...because Ian Desmond tied it up in the 6th with a jack in the LF seats.
So there's the next 2 games for the Nats to take the series. Natitude lives
here...and everywhere. (Hey, I have to find some way to work this blog's name

Mike Rizzo, "junkyard dog"

And now, a few words about the "Take Back Our Park" campaign this past weekend.
Okay, so Sunday night was a letdown...even if you do include Jayson Werth's injury. But you have to admit Bryce Harper has become a breath of fresh air for the Nats (and MLB, I might add).
Stealing home will do that for you. Still think it's "old school", Cole Hamels? You fucking pussy. ADMITTING you hit Bryce on purpose? It shouldn't be 5 games, but 5 starts you should be suspended for this.
And Mike Rizzo is right in calling it a "chickenshit move". (Oh, the title? Credit Tracee Hamilton of the Washington Post in today's cover story for Rizzo's secretary referring to him as a "junkyard dog".) I love this man.
Incidentally, for you lowlife Phillies fans taunting J-Dub after his injury...all you've done is prove why you have the (richly deserved, I may add) reputation of being the absolute scum of the sports fan world.
Enjoy last place, suckers...oh, and,also enjoy your 2012 NL East champion Washington Nationals!!
Natitude RULES...
