Will the Indignities Never End For Nats?
Yikes. Less than 24 hours after being dissed by the president in front of 33.6 million viewers, politically astute D.C. baseball fans (is there any other kind?) had to endure this exchange between Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor during the latter's nomination hearing:
Cardin: "You are a hero to the Baltimore baseball fans. Let me explain. [During] the Major League Baseball strike [of 1994-95], you allowed the season to continue [without the use of replacement players] so Cal Ripken could become the Iron Man of baseall in September 1995. We just want to invite you, as a baseball fan, to an Oriole game, and we promise it will not be when the Yankees are playing, so you can root for the Baltimore Orioles."
Sotomayor: "That's a great invitaition ... You can assure your Baltimore fans that we have been to Camden Yards. It's a beautiful stadium."
