Fare Thee Well, Lisa

Posted on July 23, 2010 at 8:24 am

I'd like to give a public good luck and thank you to Lisa Pagano, who has worked hard often behind the scenes of the Nats office since the team came to town. She survived the trailers at RFK, ownership changes, the move to the new stadium and everything in between. You may remember she won "Woman of the Year" for her fundraising efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this year. Now she is moving on from sports to work ... Continue Reading

So yeah, I’m on vacation

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 2:04 am

We attended the Face2Face concert Saturday night, went to bed at 12:30 AM, got up at 3 AM to catch a flight out of BWI to Portland, OR Sunday morning. Once in Oregon, we then drove another 4 hours to get to our rental house and meet up with my family where we had a fire and chatted before crashing. We also discovered wifi in the house wasn't working and my iPhone could barely maintain an Edge connection -- same ... Continue Reading

You know the saying bad things come in threes? Well, I can name more than three over the past 48 hours and I'm still reeling, holding my breath and waiting for the madness to stop. I attended the first ever formalized sports blogging conference in NYC, "Blogs With Balls" on Saturday. I'll post more about the conference itself later as it does not necessarily meet the criteria for the numbering of bad things other than it's relevant to explain where ... Continue Reading

Chat With The Prez

Posted on March 23, 2009 at 4:40 pm

No, not *that* prez... Nationals President Stan Kasten will host an online chat on washingtonpost.com at 11 AM tomorrow (Tuesday). Hopefully no translator required. You can submit questions early and often. While trying to come up with creative ways to flesh out this post rather than just providing the link, I began reflecting on the many different aspects to "baseball". I mean, sure, there are of course the games and the players. Add in the personalities, injuries, training staff, coaches (mostly ... Continue Reading

I could’ve been a hero

Posted on February 27, 2009 at 11:32 am

Deadspin will lift a person who supplies photos of the new-look Screech unveiling Monday at ESPN Zone to hero status. I'll be trying to track down any baseball activities in Viera that day and I'm not too hopeful considering it's the first off-day of spring training. Something's gotta be going on that day, right? So someone else, please step forward and become a hero. Programming note: (woo! there's baseball all over radio and soon tv these days!) Byron Kerr will be ... Continue Reading
