Road trip!

Posted on April 9, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Never turn down an offered Nats ticket, right? Even if the particular game is a 5 hour road trip north? Ok, sure, why not?! I can be spontaneous! All electronics are charged, so I'm packing my camera and iPod and hitting the road for a solo round trip with a game in the middle. First order of business was remembering my login and updating my EZ-Pass info. I'm eager to see Tom Gorzelanny on the mound for the first ... Continue Reading

I didn’t get Rob Dibble fired

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 11:12 am

Not that I ever really thought I did. I mean, seriously? A blogger getting a big nasty former-pitcher-turned-broadcaster fired over his own inane remarks?! Ridiculoso! So those of you who were angry with me can redirect your midguided vitriol at Strasburg's dad. Or put it where it belongs, like the shoe store that ended up in Dibble's mouth. Continue Reading

No, I'm not talking about the Nats! With the federal government shutdown potentially looming and DC also cutting services such as trash collection during the shutdown, I began wondering odd things I'd never thought before, particularly with the Nationals returning next week for the 2nd home stand of the season. 1. What do stadiums do with the mass quantities of trash they generate? There are no commercial trash bins visible outside the stadium, and I can't recall if I've ever seen ... Continue Reading

You Can’t Judge A Season By One Series

Posted on April 5, 2011 at 10:15 am

But what about two with the Marlins series starting tonight? I kid, I kid! I have nothing much to say about Sunday's series finale loss at the brutal choking hands of the Braves. The notes in my scoresheet read simply: Bad bad D! Bad bullpen. Yep, that about sums it up. I'm sure most of you saw the game or already read the recaps, so no need to rehash it here, except to say GACK! I've been listening to Glee CDs on repeat ... Continue Reading

Bob Carpenter’s new wing man

Bob Carpenter’s new wing man

Welcome to FP Santangelo, Bob Carpenter's new partner this season in the broadcast booth. Yesterday was the first game that counts I watched with the new pairing. I did catch a couple spring training games on tv as well. I like the guy so far, but I have one request. That's some good old fashioned country hard ball! Please please do not overuse that phrase! I think I heard it at least 4 times yesterday, maybe with 'fast' switching out 'hard' on ... Continue Reading
