Best in Strasburg fashion



The single best fan item I saw from Tuesday's game came, not surprisingly, from Comcast SportsNet's Michael Jenkins, the best fan reporter in the world. He caught up with this young Yankees fan whose wrist was tattooed with the Yankees' logo. Kid was wearing a Strasburg t-shirt and a Nats hat.

"I know, I know," the kid told Jenkins. "I'm a Yankees fan, but this is huge, the debut of Strasburg, so I had to be here."

His buddy -- outfitted similarly -- described himself as a "diehard" Yankees fan.

"I will sport Nationals gear for this," the kid said.

Which is how I got that above image. And now, presenting more of the best in Strasmas fashion, with help from Nationals Enquirer, Nationals News Network, Nationals Inquisition, @Kevin_Reiss and @TWebster1229.

Dan- You could have this story for yourself! I met you briefly last night before the game started (wearing the twoeightnine Strasburg shirt). I too have a Yankees tattoo and am rooting for the Nats. After living here for 10 years I have come to firmly believe that DC fans deserve a winning team. Here's hoping the Nats can help return that winning tradition to DC.

What does the first sign in the second to last picture say? "Bryce Harper doesn't ______ the Expos"

"Bryce Harper doesn't Remember the Expos" with the Montreal M's in remember. Also of note, they were both wearing captain hats to go with their "stras-BURG" dead ahead sign. Actually were fine folks (about 5 rows to my front).

Too kind, Steinz. There was also a guy with a Cubs tat on his leg, but he walked off before I could get to him.

Oh snap Michael Jenkins crashing the comments section. Please do more song and dance numbers, thank you.

Oh, well someone sent it to me over Twitter, so I credited him. My bad.
