05-28-11 Padres 2 Nationals 1

Meh. Yet another one run loss, but I photographed it, so here you go. 1ST: Bases loaded on walks with 1 out and Morse grounds into double play to end chance 2ND: Great catch by Ankiel 3RD: Hairston dives for a grounder and gets a 5-4 fielder's choice 4TH: Teddy didn't win. Abe dramatically fell backwards across the finish line 7TH: Laynce Nix homers into the Nats bullpen 8TH: Coffey time! 8TH: Coffey time! 8TH: Werth makes a nice catch 8TH: ... Continue Reading

If the Nats beat the Phillies and nobody is there to see it

Did it really happen? YES! [After reading this, check out the series preview Q&A I did with Enrico from The 700 Level] I totally did not want to go to the game last night and was silently praying for a rainout and the game to be called before hauling myself downtown. See, two days after my near-death experience in the Jeep, I wiped out on the scooter Monday night (again, thanks to a car cutting me off). With two severely bruised ... Continue Reading

You already read about my misadventure on the beltway barely into the excursion. Nothing else quite that exciting happened over the remainder of the trip, but the next morning I told my husband to tell me "no" if I ever get that idea again. I think I've come to the conclusion that there is ... Continue Reading

04-09-11 Nationals Fall 8-4 at Citi Field

New Citi Field: My first visit to it.

PSA: Please look over your shoulder before changing lanes, particularly in congested fast-moving traffic! Also (and this applies to me as well), take the 2-second following rule seriously. I still honestly have no idea how this wasn't worse yesterday and am thankful to be alive. Let's just say Jeep Wranglers may be built for ruggedness and toughness, but they were definitely not built for evasive maneuvers. Driving up to NY and Citi Field yesterday, I hadn't even made it out ... Continue Reading
