Featured Commenter: NatsNut

Meet Nationals Journal frequenter NatsNut: Real name (optional): Anonymity is too much fun. Location: D.C. Occupation: The Government NatsNut, hiding from the government.

No Shirt, Big Problem

I am about to discuss a very serious issue that has already been addressed not once, not twice, but three times on this here Web site. That's what the Internet's all about, folks; beating the proverbial dead horse, burying it and then deciding that, "Hey, this thing isn't really over...

How Many Metaphors Are There for 'Losing Baseball Team?'

Nationals Journal commenters might just be the most pessimistic group of folks out there, and who can blame them? Sure, the fact that the team is 25-40 and last in the NL East could put anyone over the edge, but I blame (and by blame I mean thank, of course)...

Nats Fans Like Lopez as More Than a Friend

Felipe Lopez has six RBI in Nats' win; giddiness ensues: lowcountry: Baseball is a funny game. Put me on the Lopez bandwagon. JennX: I'm not sure I'd ever seen Felipe smile before tonight. It was nice to see. Also, he looked hot. (But he also looks hot pouting, brooding, spacing...

Jumping Ship Already?

It's a terrible day out, isn't it? I'd like to use this public forum to announce my strong disdain for I-495. Bumper-to-bumper traffic on the beltway in the rain is miserable. Absolutely miserable. And hey, speaking of miserable, Nats fans are finding it difficult to cope after Sunday's "Comedy of...

Nats Fans Will 'Experience' Nothing and Like It

I feel for the Lerner family, I do. Here they are, trying to create this "fan experience" -- flat-screen TVs, jungle gym and PlayStation 3 for the kids, all kinds of fun things to do before the games begin -- that the fans don't even want. They just want to...

If You Build It, They Will Complain

As the "distinctly Washington home for the national pastime" nears completion, a few Nationals fans turn into cynics upon finding out what they'll have to spend at the ballpark in order to enjoy the other national pastime: eating, naturally. Nationals Park may be distinctly D.C., but the food and drink...
