I may be the only person in the state of Ohio that is really jazzed about Major League Baseball returning to the District of Crack. The Nationals have renewed my interest in our nation's 'roided-out pastime (despite the fact that I don't live in a market near DC and have yet to actually see a game, on TV or otherwise). Granted, I wasn't a fan of the Expos, but this is more about cheering on a team from my once ('98-'01) and future (later this year?) area of residence.
There's no shortage of information within the Blogosphere about the Nationals and that's mainly how I keep up with them. The one I'm really digging right now is BallWonk (love the title).
I even spent the better part of an evening last week searching for the perfect hat. Now, I'm not a huge fan of the Nationals' script "W," but I am all up in the interlocking "DC." Here's the hat that I finally ordered:
Backorderd: Ships in 2 to 4 weeks :(
Usually, I'll opt for the darker colored hat, in this case the navy blue one. But upon looking at my collection, nearly all of my hats are navy blue. So I figured that I'd spice things up a bit (caliente!) and get the red one, despite the risk that I may end up looking like either Fred Durst or Jerry Mathers as the Beaver.
My brother in Richmond, my two nephews, and I already agreed to meet up in DC for a game sometime this summer. I can't wait. Go Nats!
Non-Pope-related health update: I'm still sick. Getting better, but not operating at 100% just yet.
