An HILARIOUS piece by Charles Pierce on the NATS.

DEADSPIN

DON'T MAKE ME ROOT FOR THESE CREATURES TO BE HAPPY !


Thereís a reason why Washington didnít have a baseball team for 33 yearsóitís because Washington sucks gallons of pondwater as a sports town and even more of it as a baseball town. Its hockey team is built around one of Vladimir Putinís linemates. Its NBA team is nondescript when itís not embarrassing. Its football team plays under a racial slur for a nickname and it is owned by one of the worldís most embarrassing humans. And, sorry, but Washington had two tries as a baseball town and it punked out both times.

3. Goodness. I oddly enjoyed that.

Itís hard to not be cynical about everything, including baseball, and all that it takes to build a team (or keep team$ together). Iím just glad to be watching the Astros in the World Series, currently, ... lumps and all. Iíll get to Osuna later, because I just donít know what to think as I missed that whole debacle as last year was difficult for me with elder family membersí health crises.

I could go on to bemoan the state of the VIP section behind the plate in Houston, but wonít at this point. I know that a vast and diverse set of Houstonians are loving this. Iím enjoying the Nationals, too - theyíre dangit good. So, from my uppity-but-sliding middle class perspective, thereís a bit of that weird-assed call to unity begging to be overcooked by big media that Pierce hollers about.

Also, ya canít slag an entire city for one person or thing about it unless itís Dallas, so thereís that.




(Am just kidding and not about Dallas.)

4. This is hilarious

ďAnd then thereís the president himself. As if to place a cow chip atop a manure sundae, he let it be known that he will be in attendance at Sundayís game.Ē
Go Nats!
