Morning Bog: David Gregory's Nats Jersey

(Photo via Nats 320)

It takes a strong, self-confident man to do this, Mr. Gregory. I'm pretty sure it goes against every modern rule of appropriate jersey usage, but it's impressive nonetheless.

Some more morning links, with help from Max Wasserman and Jake DiGregorio.

* For at least the third time, Adam Dunn and Josh Willingham go out of their way to celebrate with an old-fashioned handshake. (Nats Nation)

* "Before heading up to Philadelphia for a key weekend series against the Phillies -- the team they are chasing in the National League East -- the Marlins stopped off in the nation's capital hoping to fatten up on the wretched Washington Nationals. Now they are hoping to leave town without being bulldozed." (Miami Herald)

* Despite the two straight losses, the Marlins will still likely finish with a better record in back to back years against a division rival than any MLB team since 2002. (2 Think Good)

* The feature story of the current issue of Nationals Inside Pitch (the little program-like thing you get for free at Nationals Park during the current homestand) is all about Tony "Nyjer Mogan" Plush. Here's the important quote:

The speed and stolen bases, that's Tony Plush. Getting caught stealing, that's Nyjer Morgan. The diving catches and home run robbing grabs, that's Tony Plush. The mental mistakes, that's Nyjer Morgan.

So Nyjer Morgan is actually a terrible ballplayer. The Nats should send him down and keep Tony Plush.

* Carey Price may be one hillbilly of a hockey goalie, but at least he's our hillbilly, doing a recent TSN interview while wearing a Nats cap. (Hockey Head)

* "Simeon Varlamov - in name only at least - is no longer a member of the Capitals. That is because the promising young goaltender from Russia has filed papers with the NHL to have his first name spelled S-E-M-Y-O-N for the upcoming season and foreseeable future." (Welcome to the Show)

* DCU's performance in El Salvador demonstrated that the team cares about its international success. (FanHouse)

* A local paper blames the result on "bastard penalty kicks." (@BarraBrava)

* Butch Davis talks about recruiting Clinton Portis and Santana Moss, calling the former "absolutely spectacular" and the latter "the biggest secret maybe in the country." (Hogs Haven)

* Fred Smoot performs the crane kick. (Crane Kick Chronicles)

* Jim Zorn's recipe for yogurt shakes. (The Redskins Blog)

* The Redskins PR department An important NFL writer says Jason Campbell "is embracing his role as a team leader." (Pro Football Talk)

* And, of course, Round 1 has been completed in the ultimate battle for D.C. Blogosphere supremacy: The Cooleys vs. The Mottrams in a throw-off. (The Cooley Zone)

thecooleyzone: Good luck Mottrams

TasMelas: The Cooleys still throw like girls

jamiemottram: We got this.

Tanner Cooley: Get ready to wear a Yankees hat and a Cowboys jersey.

Who is David Gregory? and why should we care? Grown men shouldn't wear personalized baseball jerseys to games.

David Gregory should be Mayor of Nats Town.

Yeah, David Gregory, the friggin' highlight of Opening Day. Another self-important Washington hairsprayed gas-bag who's never accomplished anything of note besides simply rising to the top of mediocre television journalism.

I hope the Nats can do better than David Gregory next opening day. Anybody in the promotions department every heard of Frank Howard or Frank Robinson.

At least he spelled it right.

i think when he wears that jersey to games, folks should make a point to say hello and asks for autographs and pictures. when he says he's just trying to watch the game and doesnt want all the attention, you can ask him "then why do you wear a freaking jersey with your name on it to the game?"

suprised it doesnt say "MEET THE PRESS" on the back...

I'd be willing to bet that the jersey was a gift from Gregory's wife and/or kids. Therefore, his only choice to avoid grief at home is to actually wear the thing.

Either that, or he really is a tool.

I got a personalized jersey from a family member who made the mistake of putting my FIRST name on the back of it. I wear it to games, yeah. Still a nice jersey, cost more than I would have spent.

I know PuckDaddy does a weekly article during the season on "Jersey Fouls"....Gregory qualifies...

Give the guy a break! He's just out there showing his support for the team. And you guys all missed the July 25 game when his son threw out the first pitch with a Nats jersey-clad Mr. Gregory on the field photographing the moment. His son was celebrating his seventh birthday according to the PA announcer. Mr. Gregory was just being an enthusiastic dad at his kid's ballpark birthday party. And fashion police don't belong at ballparks anyway!
