They Really Love Their Nats Here

The lead in the Washington Post sports article about last night's Brewers - Nationals' game is quite something. If anything, it shows that Washington will always be a Redskins' town first.

If ever there was a chance for the Washington Nationals to revive themselves against a playoff-contending opponent, it was last night. After all, the National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers had lost five of their past seven games. They even had lost their starting center fielder to an ankle injury.

So forget for a moment that the Nationals also were slumping, having lost eight of their past 10 games. They had a chance.

And then the game started.
The Crew won 6-2 .

I didn't get a chance to go to last night's game since I got off work pretty late. And last time I checked, it's not 1920 so I wasn't going to a baseball game in a shirt and tie.

Plan is to be at tonight and tomorrow's games. I'll try to send some pictures to the Sports Bar folks.
