Nats Feature Oil Protesters, Dated Cover Bands, Massage Therapists


Dr. Fu, playing tribute to Bill Bray and Billy Traber.


Nats highlights from across the Internats, starting with

* Thom Loverro's masterful weekend column, in which he attempted to solve the case of the missing children's promotional jerseys. Never made it through Customs, apparently

Even more fascinating, though, was the case of the dated cover band.

The bar featured a band called, "Dr. Fu," and they were all wearing Nationals jerseys. However, the jerseys were all for players who are no longer here - Ryan Drese, Bill Bray, Billy Traber and Felix Rodriguez. Might as well put them to good use, I guess.

Glad I'm not the only one unwilling to see the Billy Traber Era come to a close. And speaking of anonymous white beings....

* Polar bear baseball protesters! Or possibly furry rabbit baseball protesters! Everyone is instructed to boo the Nationals and corporate greed and oil sponsorship during the 7th inning stretch, or possibly to skip games and go to the zoo instead.

(Green people are upset about Exxon sponsorship at Nationals Park, is the general idea, and protest is their form of release.) And speaking of release....

* Remember Tatiana Tchamouroff, the magical and apocryphal Team Massage Therapist responsible for Dmitri Young's feeling of "instant release" after she found what Jim Bowden called "the spot." Well, she's going to be a featured guest at the Nats' second annual Baseball 101 Clinic & Luncheon for Women. Here's hoping Tatiana can help find additional spots.

When you're nostalgic for the Ryan Drese era like I am, you know things have hit rock bottom.

The next time I get off the Metro in the morning - I will punch the next Eco Terrorist that gets in my way.

You want to protest - go post up at the parking garages at buildings in DC.

You want to boo the Nationals for accepting corporate money - donate yourself or pay increased ticket prices.

Otherwise, shut up.
