Brown Paper Bag Head at Nats Game



On the one hand, this is awful bitter medicine for a team that's 9-6 over its last 15 games. Yeah, 9-6. That's bandwagon territory.

On the other hand, these photos are simply irresistible. Decades later, I don't think any gesture of fan frustration has come close to equaling the brown paper bag in sheer heart-burning effectiveness. Also, it's funny looking.

Plus, nothing says Washington D.C. baseball like trying to drink a microbrew through a Whole Foods bag.

Not the time for brown paper bags.

My guess is s/he was looking for attention.

Apparently, it worked.

Note the Inn-N-Out Burger shirt - this person isn't local even if s/he lives here now.

Fifteen minutes over, bub.

Not so fast, there. I've lived here all my life and have a half dozen In-n-Out shirts. Got 'em while in SoCal on business trips.

Come on! Not now. Winning 7 of 11 is fantastic for this team. Things are certainly lookin' up.
